Anisomycin is a specific agonist of JNK with a concentration of 25 ng/ml .
JNK is short for c-Jun N-terminal kinase which reported as a proapoptotic kinase and plays an important role in many cellular events, such as cell cycle, proliferation, apoptosis and cell stress. It is also reported that JNK plays a pivotal role in the cell apoptosis induced by UV and activated JNK pathway could enhance TNF-α mediated apoptosis thus often regarded as a potent target in clinic  .
Anisomycin is a potent JNK agonist. When tested with hormone refractory cell line DU 145(highly resist to Fas mediated apoptosis), 250 ng/ml anisomysin treatment induced DU145 cells apoptosis together with Fas (200 ng/ml) via activating JNK . In HL-60 cells, treatment of anisomysin activated JNK pathway activity which further induced cell apoptosis . When tested with primary murine embryonic fibroblasts, anisomycin treatment stimulated cell apoptosis via activating JNK expression .
