Datasheet of Bikinin

Description: Bikinin(Abrasin) is a potent inhibitor of plant GSK-3/Shaggy-like kinase; activates BR signaling downstream of the BR receptor. in vitro: Bikinin is a potent inhibitor of group I and group II ASKs. ASKθ, a group III ASK is moderately inhibited. The second kinase of this class, ASKβ, and the group IV kinase ASKδ are not inhibited. plants treated with the ASK inhibitor bikinin show the typical signs of constitutive BR response including elongated hypocotyls and light-green leaves indicating that most or all ASKs crucial for BR signalling are inhibited. Bikinin directly binds the GSK3 BIN2 and acts as an ATP competitor. Furthermore, bikinin inhibits the activity of six other Arabidopsis GSK3s. in vivo: Bikinin, a GSK3 kinase inhibitor, inhibited the SnRK2.3 kinase activity and its T180 phosphorylation in vivo.

Handling: Providing storage is as stated on the product vial and the vial is kept tightly sealed, the product can be stored for up to 24 months. Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
