Other information on the target :
Interaction between CDK5 and p25
Selectivity profile :
Micromolar efficiencies: CDK5/p25 and CDK5/p35 (IC50 against CDK5/p25= 4µM) ; Acyl-coenzyme A:cholesterol acyltransferase (ACAT); protein kinase C (PKC, the level of PKC inhibition by TMX varies from 25 mM to 100 mM); calmodulin (CaM)-dependent enzymes (Calmodulin);
Nanomolar efficiencies: estrogen receptor (ER, Kd = 1 nM); microsomal anti-estrogen binding site (AEBS).

In vivo data :
Tamoxifen was never tested on CDK5/p25-related mouse model.
From Maani, N., Sabha, N., Rezai, K. et al. Tamoxifen therapy in a murine model of myotubular myopathy. Nat Commun 9, 4849 (2018). https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-018-07057-5
"Tamoxifen (TAM) was given at either a low (3 mg/kg) or high (40 mg/kg) dose, with low-dose modeling human pediatric dosing and high dose matching what is used for Cre-lox recombination in mice."
In vitro data :
From Corbel et al. 2015: in the presence of 100 µM glutamate and 20 µM MG132, the addition of increasing concentrations of tamoxifen (5-15µM) decreases the phosphorylation of tau (pSer214) in primary neuronal cultures.
Induces apoptosis in human malignant glioma cell lines and inhibits prostate cancer cell growth by induction of p21 protein.
