ReadiUse™ Staurosporine * 1 mM DMSO stock solution*

Jurkat cells were treated without (Green) or with 1 μM staurosporine (Red) in 37 ºC for 4 hours, and then labeled with FITC-Annexin V conjugate for 30 minutes. Fluorescence intensity was measured using ACEA NovoCyte flow cytometer in FITC channel.

Molecular weight
Staurosporine is widely used as a positive control for inducing apoptosis. It has been proven that Staurosporine induces apoptosis in human malignant glioma cell lines, and arrests normal cells at the G1 checkpoint. Staurosporine is a potent, cell-permeable, reversible, ATP-competitive and broad spectrum inhibitor of protein kinases, e.g., CaM kinase (IC50 = 20 nM), myosin light chain kinase (IC50 = 1.3 nM), protein kinase A (IC50 = 7 nM), protein kinase C (IC50 = 0.7 nM), and protein kinase G (IC50 = 8.5 nM). Staurosporine also inhibits platelet aggregation induced by collagen or ADP but has no effect on thrombin-induced platelet aggregation.
