Background: Triciribine (TCN, Tricyclic Nucleoside, NSC-154020) inhibits Akt (protein kinase B) signaling resulting in apoptosis of human cancer cells. It also inhibits DNA synthesis and as its monophosphate, is active against HIV type 1. It works in vivo as selective Akt activation inhibitor. The compound is phosphorylated to its active metabolite, the mono-phosphate derivative TCN-P, by adenosine kinase and is able to prevent the phosphorylation of Akt1, Akt2 or Akt3. TCN-P binds to the PH domain of Akt and prevents its recruitment to the plasma membrane and subsequent phosphorylation at T308 and S473. In contrast, constitutively active Akt mutants (Akt1-T308D/S473D and myr-Akt), are resistant to TCN-P.
