Germinal center kinases (GCKs), such as TNIK, are characterized by an N-terminal kinase domain and a C-terminal GCK domain that serves a regulatory function. TNIK has been shown to interact with KIAA0090, although the significance is unclear. TNIK has been shown to phosphorylate Gelsolin, a protein involved in F-actin depolymerisation thus inducing cytoskeletal changes.
|Pim1 AKK1-IN-1 is a potent multi-kinase inhibitor with Kd values of 35 nM/53 nM/75 nM/380 nM for Pim1/AKK1/MST2/LKB1 respectively and also inhibits MPSK1 and TNIK.
|NCB-0846 is an TNIK inhibitor with IC50 value of 21 nM.
|Inhibitor of Traf2- and Nck-Interacting Kinase (TNIK; Ki value 100 nM in ATP competitive assay) that attenuates TGF-β1-mediated Wnt and Smad signaling and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in human lung adenocarcinoma A549 cells. Additionally, KY05009 inhibits TGF-β1-induced phosphorylation of JNK1/2, FAK, Src, and paxillin.
