BI-D1870 is a cell-permeable inhibitor of the p90 RSK isoforms with IC50 values of 31nM, 24nM, 18nM and 15nM for RSK1, RSK2, RSK3 and RSK4 respectively [1].

BI-D1870 is a derivative of dihydropteridinone and found to be a remarkably specific inhibitor of RSK isoforms. It is an ATP-competitive inhibitor. When the concentrations of ATP are 10μM and 100μM, the IC50 values of BI-D1870 against RSK1 and RSK2 are 5nM, 10nM and 10nM, 20nM, respectively. BI-D1870 also inhibits RSK3 and RSK4 with IC50 values of 18nM and 15nM respectively, when ATP is 100μM. The inhibition activity of BI-D1870 against RSK is more than 500-fold greater than some other AGC kinases suggesting BI-D1870 as a specific inhibitor of RSK. In addition, BI-D1870 is reported to induce the phosphorylation of ERK1/ERK2 and the subsequent phosphorylation of CREB in Rat-2 cells [1].

General tipsFor obtaining a higher solubility, please warm the tube at 37°C and shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. We do not recommend long-term storage for the solution, please use it up soon.


Cell experiment [1]:

Cell lines

HEK-293 cells

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is >19.6mg/mL. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37℃ for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. Stock solution can be stored below -20℃ for several months.

Reacting condition

0-10 μM; 15, 30, 60, 120 and 240 min


In HEK-293 cells, BI-D1870 greatly inhibited the PMA-induced phosphorylation of GSK3α and GSK3β. BI-D1870 also inhibited PMA-induced phosphorylation of GSK3 isoforms and another RSK substrate, the protein kinase LKB1 with an IC50 of approx. 1 μM.

Animal experiment [2]:

Animal models

experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) mice

Dosage form

0.5 mg/kg; intraperitoneal injection; every other day for 11 days


In EAE mice immunized with MOG peptide, BI-D1870 protected mice from EAE by reducing the infiltration of TH1 and TH17 cells into the CNS and decreasing mRNA levels of Ccr6 in TH17 cells.

Other notes

Please test the solubility of all compounds indoor, and the actual solubility may slightly differ with the theoretical value. This is caused by an experimental system error and it is normal.
