Selonsertib, also known as GS-4997, is an orally bioavailable inhibitor of apoptosis signal-regulating kinase 1 (ASK1), with potential anti-inflammatory, antineoplastic and anti-fibrotic activities. GS-4997 targets and binds to the catalytic kinase domain of ASK1 in an ATP-competitive manner, thereby preventing its phosphorylation and activation. GS-4997 prevents the production of inflammatory cytokines, down-regulates the expression of genes involved in fibrosis, suppresses excessive apoptosis and inhibits cellular proliferation.

How to use
Selonsertib (GS-4997) is a clinical stage ASK1 inhibitor, which has been evaluated as an experimental treatment for diabetic nephropathy and kidney fibrosis. Selonsertib (GS-4997) is a highly selective and potent once-daily oral ASK1 inhibitor that competes with ATP in the ASK1 catalytic kinase domain.
