Purvalanol A is a potent CDK inhibitor, which effectively suppresses Src-mediated transformation by inhibiting both CDKs and c-Src. indicating that the activation of CDKs contributes to the c-Src transformation. Purvalanol A suppressed the c-Src activity as effectively as the Src-selective inhibitor PP2, and that it reverted the transformed morphology to a nearly normal shape with less cytotoxicity than PP2. Purvalanol A induced a strong G2-M arrest, whereas PP2 weakly acted on the G1-S transition. Furthermore, when compared with PP2, purvalanol A more effectively suppressed the growth of human colon cancer HT29 and SW480 cells, in which Src family kinases and CDKs are activated.

How to use
Purvalanol A inhibits cdc28 (S. cerevisiae) and erk1 with IC50s of 80 and 9000 nM. Purvalanol A shows inhibitory activities against the NCI panel of 60 human tumor cell lines, with average GI50 of 2 μM; two cell lines show an -20-fold increase in sensitivity to purvalanol A: the KM12 colon cancer cell line with a GI50 of 76 nM and the NCI-H522 non–small cell lung cancer cell line with a GI50 of 347 nM. Purvalanol A is a 2.5-fold more potent inhibitor of CDK2, but also inhibits DYRK1A potently and a number of other protein kinases in the low micromolar range. Purvalanol A inhibits MKK1, MAPK2/ERK2, JNK/SAPK1c with IC50s of 80, 26, 84 μM. Purvalanol A selectively inhibits the phosphorylation of cellular proteins. Purvalanol A prevents the increases of the contents of cyclins D and E during serum-induced G1 phase progression. Purvalanol A does not inhibit transcription under cell-free conditions.
