Application

Bikinin has been used:
  • as a glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK3) inhibitor in Arabidopsis Col-0 seedlings to test its effect on gene expression
  • as a component of induction medium and as a GSK3 inhibitor to test its effect on mesophyll cells in Arabidopsis leaf discs or cotyledons
  • as a brassinosteroid agonist to test its effect on the leaf index of R. trichophyllus terrestrial leaves

Biochem/physiol Actions

Bikinin is a strong activator of brassinosteroid (BR) signaling. It is an Arabidopsis GSK-3 Inhibitor, an Arabidopsis SHAGGY-related Kinase Inhibitor, and a GSK-3-like Kinase BIN2 Inhibitor. Bikinin directly inhibits BIN2 (group II GSK3s) by interfering with ATP binding. Bikinin is specific toward a subset of Arabidopsis GSK3 kinases including BIN2 and ASK α, γ, ε, ι, and θ.

Glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3) is a key regulator in signaling pathways in both animals and plants. Three Arabidopsis thaliana GSK3s are shown to be related to brassinosteroid (BR) signaling. In a phenotype-based compound screen we identified bikinin, a small

Signaling by the hormones brassinosteroid (BR) and gibberellin (GA) is critical to normal plant growth and development and is required for hypocotyl elongation in response to dark and elevated temperatures. Active BR signaling is essential for GA promotion of hypocotyl
