|Description||Barasertib (AZD1152-HQPA) is a highly selective Aurora B inhibitor with IC50 of 0.37 nM in a cell-free assay, ~3700 fold more selective for Aurora B over Aurora A. Phase 1.|
|In vitro||AZD1152 displays >3000-fold selectivity for Aurora B as compared with Aurora A which has an IC50 of 1.368 μM. AZD1152 has even less activity against 50 other serine-threonine and tyrosine kinases including FLT3, JAK2, and Abl. AZD1152 inhibits the proliferation of hematopoietic malignant cells such as HL-60, NB4, MOLM13, PALL-1, PALL-2, MV4-11, EOL-1, THP-1, and K562 cells with IC50 of 3-40 nM, displaying ~100-fold potency than another Aurora kinase inhibitor ZM334739 which has IC50 of 3-30 μM. AZD1152 inhibits the clonogenic growth of MOLM13 and MV4-11 cells with IC50 of 1 nM and 2.8 nM, respectively, as well as the freshly isolated imatinib-resistant leukemia cells with IC50 values of 1-3 nM, more significantly compared with bone marrow mononuclear cells with IC50 values of >10 nM. AZD1152 induces accumulation of cells with 4N/8N DNA content, followed by apoptosis in a dose- and time-dependent manner. |
|In vivo||Administration of AZD1152 (25 mg/kg) alone markedly suppresses the growth of MOLM13 xenografts, confirmed by the observation of necrotic tissue with infiltration of phagocytic cells.  In addition, AZD1152 (10-150 mg/kg/day) significantly inhibits the growth of a variety of human solid tumor xenografts, including colon, breast, and lung cancers, in a dose-dependent manner. |
|Cell lines||HL-60, NB4, MOLM13, PALL-2, MV4-11, EOL-1, and K562 cells|
|Concentrations||Dissolved in DMSO, final concentrations ~100 nM|
|Incubation Time||24 or 48 hours|
|Method||Cells are exposed to various concentrations of AZD1152 for 24 or 48 hours. Cell proliferation is measured by 3H-thymidine uptake (isotope added 6 hours before harvest), and the concentration that induced 50% growth inhibition (IC50) is calculated from dose-response curves. Cell cycle analysis is performed by flow cytometry. Cell apoptosis is measured by annexin V–FITC apoptosis detection kit.|
|Animal Models||Female immune-deficient BALB/c nude mice subcutaneously injected with MOLM13 cells|
|Formulation||Dissolved in 3M Tris, pH 9.0, at a concentration of 2.5 mg/mL|
|Dosages||5 or 25 mg/kg|
|Administration||Intraperitoneal injection 4 times a week or every another day|

Targeting PI3K, a common downstream effector of RTKs, with a selective inhibitor (GDC0941) sensitizes SOX10 knockdown cells to vemurafenib. shRNAs targeting SOX10 were introduced into A375 cells by lentiviral transduction. pLKO.1 empty vector served as a control vector (Ctrl). Cells were seeded in 6-well plates at the same density in the presence or absence of drug(s) at the indicated concentration. Cells were cultured for 2 weeks in the absence of vemurafenib or 4 weeks in the presence of vemurafenib before fixing and staining.
