Bisindolylmaleimide V (BIM V, Ro 31-6045) is a negative control for protein kinase C (PKC)-inhibitory activity with Kd value of 100 ?M [1]. Ro 31-6045 also inhibited S6K activity with IC50 value of 8 ?M [4].

Protein kinase C plays an important role in the transduction of signals from a variety of mediators across the cell membrane. PKC regulates cell proliferation, secretion, and gene expression. Inhibition of PKC may provide therapy for diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, cancer and AIDS [2][3].

Bisindolylmaleimide V is the inactive analogue of the protein kinase C inhibitor Ro 31-8220. Bisindolylmaleimide IV was very weak and inhibited [3H] N-methyl scopolamine binding only at the highest concentration used [1]. Ro 31-6045 also inhibited mitogen-stimulated protein kinase p70s6k/p85s6k (S6K) activity. In fibroblasts, Ro 31-6045 inhibited S6K with IC50 value of 8 ?M [4].
