Triciribine hydrate has been used to study the effect of diethyldithiocarbamate (DDC) on matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) in hepatic stellate cells1. It has also been used to analyze ADAM 10 activation by (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) in N2a cells overexpressing Swedish mutant APP (SweAPP N2a cells)2.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Triciribine is a highly selective Akt/PKB inhibitor, that selectively inhibits the cellular phosphorylation/activation of Akt1/2/3.

Preparation Note

Triciribine hydrate is soluble in DMSO at a concentration that is greater than 10 mg/ml.

Whereas atopic dermatitis (AD) is considered as a T helper 2 (Th2)-centered disease, IL-17-producing Th (Th17) cells are also activated in AD lesional skin. However, the relationship between Th17 responses and Th2 responses in AD is still to be elucidated....

Over the past 20 years, survival rates of T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) patients have improved, mainly because of advances in polychemotherapy protocols. Despite these improvements, we still need novel and less toxic treatment strategies targeting aberrantly activated signaling networks...

The interaction between epithelial and stromal cells through soluble factors such as cytokines plays an important role in carcinogenesis. Breaking this cancer-promoting interaction poses an opportunity for cancer prevention. The tumor-promoting function of interleukin 6 (IL-6) has been documented; however...

Information regarding Helicobacter pylori antibiotic resistance in Indonesia was previously inadequate. We assessed antibiotic susceptibility for H. pylori in Indonesia, and determined the association between virulence genes or genetic mutations and antibiotic resistance. We recruited 849 dyspeptic patients who underwent...
