TG003 is a potent, ATP-competitive inhibitor of Clk-family kinases (IC50 values are 20, 200 and 15 nM for mClk1, 2 and 4 respectively and >10 μ M for mClk3). . TG003 inhibited SF2/ASF-dependent splicing of beta-globin pre-mRNA in vitro by suppression of Clk-mediated phosphorylation. TG003 also suppressed serine/arginine-rich protein phosphorylation, dissociation of nuclear speckles, and Clk1/Sty-dependent alternative splicing in mammalian cells. Consistently, administration of TG003 rescued the embryonic defects induced by excessive Clk activity in Xenopus.

How to use
In Vitro Kinase Assay : Kinase activity of Clks and SRPKs is assayed in a reaction mixture, containing 200 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5), 12.5 mM MgCl2, 8 mM dithiothreitol, 4 mM EGTA, 1–20 μM ATP, 1 μCi of [γ-32P]ATP, 1 μg of synthetic peptide of SF2/ASF RS domain (NH2-RSPSYGRSRSRSRSRSRSRSRSNSRSRSY-OH), and 0.1–1 μg of purified kinases in a final volume of 40 μL. cAMP-dependent protein kinase activity is assayed in a reaction mixture containing 80 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5), 12.5 mM MgCl2, 8 mM dithiothreitol, 4 mM EGTA, 10 μM ATP, 1 μCi of [γ-32P]ATP, 5 μg of histone H1, and 1 μg of catalytic subunit of rat cAMP-dependent protein kinase purified. Protein kinase C activity is assayed in a reaction mixture containing 200 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5), 12.5 mM MgCl2, 1 mM CaCl2, 80 μg/mL phosphatidylserine, 8 μg/mL diolein, 10 μM ATP, 1 μCi of [γ-32P]ATP, 5 μg of histone H1, and 2 μL of partially purified rat protein kinase C. The final concentration of Me2SO is adjusted to 1% regardless of inhibitor concentration. The reaction mixture is incubated at 30 or 25 °C for mammalian or Xenopus recombinant proteins, respectively, for 10 min, and a half-portion is spotted on P81 phosphocellulose membrane. The kinase assay conditions, including the incubation period and concentration of kinases and substrates, are optimized to maintain the linearity during incubation. The membrane is washed with 5% phosphoric acid solution (SF2/ASF RS domain) or 5% trichloroacetic solution (histone H1) at least over 15 min. The radioactivity is measured using a liquid scintillation counter. The net radioactivity is deduced by subtracting the background count from the reaction mixture without kinase, and the data are expressed as the percentage to the control sample containing the solvent.
2 × 105 HeLa cells or 1.5 × 105 COS-7 cells resuspended in 2 mL of medium are plated on 6-well dishes, and 2 μL of 10 mM TG003 dissolved in Me2SO (final concentration at 10 μM), or 2 μL of Me2SO, is added to some wells. Cells are trypsinized, and the density is counted every 24 h for 3 days. Cells are then fixed with 1 mL of ice-cold 70% ethanol, washed with PBS, incubated in 1 ml of PBS containing 1 μg/mL DNase-free RNase A and 50 μg/mL propidium iodide for 20 min at 37 °C, and proceeded to cell cycle analysis by FACSCalibur.(Only for Reference) Cell lines: HeLa cells and COS-7 cells
