Staurosporine is a potent cell permeable inhibitor of many kinases including Protein Kinase C, Protein Kinase A, CaM kinase, myosin light chain kinase, and PI3K (IC50 = 9 μM).
The biological effects of Staurosporine include cytotoxicity, relaxation of smooth muscle, and regulation of eNOS gene expression. It inhibits platelet aggregation induced by collagen or ADP but has no effect on thrombin-induced platelet aggregation.
Staurosporine induces apoptosis in human malignant glioma cell lines and arrests normal cells at the G1 checkpoint.
