Tofacitinib is a potent pan-JAK inhibitor with IC50s = 1, 20 and 112 nM for JAK3, JAK2 and JAK1 respectively (1). This compound displays potent antiinflammatory (2) and immunosuppressant (3) activities. It also promotes a white-to-brown metabolic metabolic conversion in human adipoctes (4) and is therapeutically used for rheumatoid arthritis (5).
