Description

"R-roscovitine is a cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitor that induces apoptosis in colorectal, breast, prostate, multiple myeloma, other cancer cell lines, and tumor xenografts, in micromolar concentrations. R-roscovitine also blocks voltage-gated K+channels by binding to the open state." "R-roscovitine inhibits open hERG channels but does not become trapped in the pore."
