Bisindolylmaleimide VIII is a protein kinase C (PKC) inhibitor.
The protein kinase C (PKC) consists of a family of closely related isoenzymes mediating various signal transduction processes. The ten isoenzymes that have been currently identified can be divided into three families on the basis of their different requirements for activation. Members of the conventional PKC family are Ca2+ and phospholipid-dependent and are activated by diacylglycerols and phorbol esters.
In vitro: Previous study found that bisindolylmaleimides carrying a straight-chain alkyl side-chain bearing a cationic substituent, such as Ro 31-7549 (bisindolylmaleimide VIII) and Ro 31-8220, showed a significant improvement in potency over the simple bisindolylmaleimides. For bisindolylmaleimide VIII, a further improvement in potency was obtained by restricting the position of the amine substituent. Moreove, unlike the indolocarbazole, staurosporine, which displayed 2-fold selectivity for PKC-β over the other examined isoenzymes, bisindolylmaleimide VIII exhibited a slight selectivity for PKC-α over the other isoenzymes. Compounds such as bisindolylmaleimide VIII carrying a straight-chain alkyl side-chain with the cationic substituent were found to be equipotent as inhibitors of PKC-β, PKC-γ and PKC-ε .
In vivo: Animal study found that, in neonatal rats, high glucose levels could induce the hypertrophy of cardiomyocytes. Ro-31-8220, a analog of bisindolylmaleimide VIII, was able to reverse the effect of high glucose on the cardiac myocytes,which might be through PKC/NF-κB/c-Fos pathway .
Clinical trial: So far, no clinical study has been conducted.
