  • Erk5 activation depends on Mek5, classical PKC and Mek1/2. MOVAS cells were serum-starved overnight and then treated for 1 h if not indicated otherwise with inhibitors targeting Jnk (SP600125, 10 μM), p38 (SB203580, 10 μM), Mek1/2 (CI-1040, 3 μM), Jak2 (AG490, 10 μM), Src (SU6656, 0.5 μM), Go6983 (PKC, 1 μM), Gö6976 (classical PKC, 1 μM), proteasomes (MG132, 25 μM), TPA (100 ng/ml for 15 min to activate PKCs or overnight to inhibit) and Mek5 (BIX02189, 1 μM), as well as Ca2 + chelators (EDTA, 2 mM; BAPTA-AM, 10 μM; both with 30 min preincubation), followed by stimulation with 20 ng/ml PDGF-BB for 10 min. Total cell lysates (TCL) were prepared and subjected to SDS-PAGE. Erk5 and PDGFRβ activities were measured by band shift and Tyr857 phosphorylation, respectively, using immunoblotting. Panel E and G show representative immunoblots.

  • Go6976 abolished the anticalcification activity of CST by promoting the ossification of cultured VSMCs. Rat VSMCs werecultured in growth medium or calcification medium in the presence or absence of 10 7mol/L of CST or in calcification medium containing10 7mol/L of CST and pretreated with different doses of Go6976 (0.01, 0.1 and 0.5lmol/L) for 30 min. On day 7 (A, n=4) and 12 (B,n=4), VSMCs were harvested for the determination of ALP activity (A) using an ALP assay kit and calcium content (B) using the OCPCmethod. The VSMCs cultured with calcification medium containing 10 7mol/L of CST were pretreated with different doses of Go6976 (0.01and 0.1lmol/L) for 30 min. On day 6, VSMCs were harvested for the detection of expression of OCN (C, D, n=6).

Go6976 have no effect on the kinase activity of the Ca(2+)-independent PKC subtypes delta, epsilon, and zeta. [1] Beside WT JAK2, Go6976 also inhibits the mutant forms (JAK2 V617F and TEL-JAK2) found in haematological malignancies, and has activity against mutant forms of FLT3. In AML cells, Go6976 reduces the survival to 55% of control in FLT3-ITD cases and to 69% in FLT3-WT samples.[2] Go 6976 potently inhibits HIV-1 induction by Bryostatin 1, tumor necrosis factor alpha, and interleukin 6.

PKC Activity Assay:

In brief, for measuring PKCα, and PKCβ1 and PKC from rat brain, the assay mixture of 200 μl contains 50 mM HEPES (pH7.5), 5 mM MgCl2, 1 mM EDTA, 1.25 mM EGTA, 1.32 mM CaC12, 1 mM dithiothreitol, 1 μg of phosphatidylserine, 0.2 μg of diolein, 40 μg of histone Hi, 10 μM [γ-32P]ATP (1 μCi/ml), and 5-10 units (pmol of Pi/min) of PKC. Assays are started by the addition of [γ-32P]ATP, incubated for 5 min at 30 °C, stopped by the addition of 2 ml of 8.5% H3PO4, filtered through 0.45-μm nitrocellulose filters, and evaluated by scintillation counting.
