Product Information

TDZD8 is a serine/threonine glycogen synthase kinase 3beta (GSK-3beta) inhibitor. GSK-3beta is abundant in the central nervous system, particularly in the hippocampus, and plays a pivotal role in the pathophysiology of a number of diseases, including neurodegeneration. TDZD-8 protects the brain against I/R injury by inhibiting GSK-3beta activity. TDZD-8 decreased proliferation and induced apoptosis of GL261 glioblastoma cells in vitro, delayed tumor growth in vivo, and augmented animal survival. These effects were associated with an early activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) pathway and increased expression of EGR-1 and p21 genes.

In Vitro

TDZD8 results in a significant decline of cellular ATP levels in PC-3 cells.

TDZD8 (10 μM) treatment also triggers a drastic autophagy response and AMPK activation in PC-3 cells. Furthermore, TDZD8 (10 μM) reduces mTOR phosphorylation levels at the S2448 site. In addition, TDZD8 (10 μM) induces LKB1 nuclear-cytoplasm translocation.


In Vivo

TDZD-8 (TDZD8, 1 or 2 mg/kg, i.p.) both reduces the induction of p-DARPP32 following chronic L-dopa treatment in parkinsonian animals.

TDZD8 treatment of 21 days induces a significant reduction in PKA expression in rats with established dyskinesia. Moreover, TDZD8 reduces FosB mRNA level in the striatum and lowers the expression of PPEB mRNA to similar levels as in 6-OHDA-lesioned rats without treated with L-dopa. The decrease in dyskinesia induced by TDZD8 is overcome by dopamine rceptor-1 agonist.
