BRD7389 is a Rsk family kinase inhibitor. [1]

Rsk has been suggested to phosphorylate a large number of cellular substrates and plays an important role in promoting cell growth and survival. Knockdown of Rsk family members would have an effect on insulin production inα-cells. Increasing in insulin expression upon RNAi of individual Rsk proteins can be observed, but the effect is not as strong as compound treatment with BRD7389.[1]

BRD7389 functions by inhibiting multiple Rsk family members simultaneously. BRD7389 also increases β-cell–specific gene expression in primary human islet cells. Assay-performance profile analysis suggests biochemical and cellular inhibition of the Rsk kinase family by BRD7389 is likely related to its ability induce a β-cell-like state. [2]

Treatment of TC1 cells with BRD7389 led to a decrease in the overall glycolytic activity and mitochondrial respiration rates, a phenotype reminiscent of the beta cell line. BRD7389 also increases the endocrine cell content and function of donor human pancreatic islets in culture.[2,3]
