Immunopharmacology Comments
Inhibition of SIK2 and SIK3 to promote macrophage switch to a 'regulatory'-like phenotype that favours resolution of inflammation is considered a potential therapeutic strategy for the treatment of chronic inflammatory diseases [3,7].
General Comments
SIK2's involvement in mitotic spindle formation has promoted its consideration as a potential target for cancer therapy [5]. Inhibition of SIKs is proposed as a method of sensitizing cancer cells to other chemotherapeutic drugs [9].
