Originally isolated from the sponges Axinella verrucosa and Acantella aurantiaca. Potent inhibitor of mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase-1 (MEK-1) (IC50=6nM). Blocks the in vivo phosphorylation of the microtubule-binding protein tau at sites that are hyperphosphorylated by glycogen synthase kinase-β (GSK-3β) and CDK5/p35 in Alzheimer’s disease. Inhibitor of DNA damage checkpoint at G2 phase (IC50=6µM), cyclin-dependent kinases CDK1/cyclin B (IC50=22nM), CDK2/cyclin A (IC50=70nM), CDK2/cyclin E (IC50=40nM), CDK4/cyclin D1 (IC50=600nM), CDK5/p25 (IC50=28nM), GSK-3β (IC50=10nM), and casein kinase 1 (CK1) (IC50=35nM). Inhibitor of NF-κB activation and of various pro-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-1, IL-2 (IC50=2.4µM), IL-6, IL-8, TNF-α (IC50=1.4µM) and nitric oxide (NO) (IC50=0.8µM) in a variety of cell lines.MARK (microtubule affinity-regulating kinase) is potently inhibited by Hymenialdsine. In N2a cells stably transfected with htau40, Hymenialdisine (50µM) strongly inihibted neuritrite outgrowth.
