Multiple myeloma is a fetal form of plasma cell malignancy characterized by abnormal clonal proliferation of plasma cells. Especially, the canonical Wnt signaling pathway mediated by β-catenin is activated in multiple myeloma cells, stimulating their proliferation. Here, we investigated the relationship between interleukin-6-induced proliferation of multiple myeloma cells and Traf2- and Nck-interacting kinase (TNIK) expression in Wnt signaling. Interleukin-6 increased the proliferation of multiple myeloma cells and TNIK mRNA and protein expression. In addition, we examined the effect on TNIK of TNIK inhibitor KY-05009 and receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor dovitinib and whether inhibition of TNIK suppresses the interleukin-6-induced proliferation of multiple myeloma cells. KY-05009 and dovitinib synergistically inhibited interleukin-6-stimulated proliferation and induced apoptosis through the inhibition of Wnt signaling in MM cells. Our results provide crucial information that TNIK is involved in the interleukin-6-dependent proliferation of multiple myeloma cells and inhibition of Wnt signaling involving TNIK could be a therapeutic strategy for the treatment of interleukin-6-dependent multiple myeloma.
