Rp-8-bromo-Cyclic GMPS is a cGMP-dependent protein kinase (cGK) inhibitor.
cGMP is considered as an important regulator of vascular smooth muscle tone. Several smooth muscle relaxants including nitrogen oxide-containing vasodilators), endothelial-derived relaxing factors, and atrial natriuretic peptides can stimulate cGMP production in vascular smooth muscle. In addition, many of these agents have been shown to inhibit Ca2+-stimulated enzymes such as phosphorylase kinase and myosin light chain kinase in aortic smooth muscle, indicating that one major role of cGMP is to reduce the levels of free intracellular Ca2+.
In vitro: The effects of Rp-8-bromo-Cyclic GMPS on intracellular calcium concentrations in cultured rat aortic smooth muscle cells were studied. Results showed that both angiotensin II and depolarizing concentrations of K+ were ableo to stimulate Ca2+' accumulation in the cytoplasm. The increase in Ca2+ because of angiotensin II was associated with an increase in inositol phosphates, while that due to K+ was not. Preincubation of cells with Rp-8-bromo-Cyclic GMPS at 100 μM could cause an inhibition of peak Ca2+ accumulation to either angiotensin II or K+ . Another study found that like 8-bromo-cGMP, Rp-8-bromo-Cyclic GMPS was also resistant to hydrolysis by phosphodiesterases. This Rp isomer could bind cGK without activating it, leading to the competitive inhibition .
In vivo: Up to now, there is no animal in vivo data reported.
Clinical trial: So far, no clinical study has been conducted.
