A protein Kinase C inhibitor that induces apoptosis in many cell types
A complex alkaloid. staurosporine has been isolated from a strain of Streptomyces.
Staurosporine is an unusual indolocarbazole alkaloid produced by a range of actinomycete species. It is a potent antitumour active, inducing apoptosis in a variety of cell lines. Staurosporine is a potent inhibitor of many kinases including protein kinase C, tyrosine kinase, CDK2/cyclin A and CDK4/cyclin D. At submicromolar concentrations, staurosporine inhibits both IKKalpha and IKKbeta.
Broad spectrum protein kinase inhibitor. Enzymes inhibited include protein kinase C (IC 50 = 3 nM), protein kinase A (IC 50 = 7 nM), p 60v-src tyrosine protein kinase (IC 50 = 6 nM) and CaM kinase II (IC 50 = 20 nM). Also available as part of the Mixed Kinase Inhibitor Tocriset? .
