|Description||KU-55933 (ATM Kinase Inhibitor) is a potent and specific ATM inhibitor with IC50/Ki of 12.9 nM/2.2 nM in cell-free assays, and is highly selective for ATM as compared to DNA-PK, PI3K/PI4K, ATR and mTOR.|
KU-55933 inhibits DNA-PK and PI3K with IC50 of 2.5 μM and 16.6 μM, respectively. Besides, KU-55933 also prevents the activity of mTOR with IC50 of 9.3 μM. KU-55933 is active at the cellular level in ablating a well-characterized ATM-dependent phosphorylation event. KU-55933 has a dose-dependent effect in inhibiting this ATM-dependent phosphorylation event with IC50 of 300 nM. KU-58050 does not prevent the ATM-dependent phosphorylation of p53 serine 15 until a dose of 30 μM. Addition of KU-55933 has no appreciable effects on UV-induced phosphorylation of H2AX on serine 139, NBS1 on serine 343, CHK1 on serine 345, and SMC1 on serine 966. In stark contrast to the UV responses, KU-55933 ablates the ionizing radiation-induced phosphorylation of these ATM substrates. KU-55933 sensitizes HeLa cells to a range of ionizing radiation doses.  KU-55933 inhibits the phosphorylation of Akt induced by growth factors in cancer cells. KU-55933 suppresses the proliferation of cancer cells. Furthermore, suppression of ATM by KU-55933 improves survival, probably via prevention of downstream activation of TAp63α. 
|In vivo||Suppression of ATM-dependent STAT3 activation by KU-55933 enhances TRAIL-mediated apoptosis through up-regulation of surface DR5 expression, whereas suppression of both STAT3 and NF-κB appeares to be involved in down-regulation of cFLIP accompanied by an additional increase in apoptotic levels. The ATM inhibitor KU-55933 affectes TRAIL-mediated apoptosis more strongly than the JAK2 inhibitor, AG490, or overexpression of STAT3β. |
Purified enzyme assays:ATM for use in the in vitro assay is obtained from HeLa nuclear extract by immunoprecipitation with rabbit polyclonal antiserum raised to the COOH-terminal 400 amino acids of ATM in buffer containing 25 mM HEPES (pH 7.4), 2 mM MgCl2, 250 mM KCl, 500 μM EDTA, 100 μM Na3VO4, 10% v/v glycerol, and 0.1% v/v Igepal. ATM-antibody complexes are isolated from nuclear extract by incubating with protein A-Sepharose beads for 1 hour and then through centrifugation to recover the beads. In the well of a 96-well plate, ATM-containing Sepharose beads are incubated with 1 μg of substrate glutathione S-transferase–p53N66 (NH2-terminal 66 amino acids of p53 fused to glutathione S-transferase) in ATM assay buffer [25 mM HEPES (pH 7.4), 75 mM NaCl, 3 mM MgCl2, 2 mM MnCl2, 50 μM Na3VO4, 500 μM DTT, and 5% v/v glycerol] at 37 °C in the presence or absence of inhibitor. After 10 minutes with gentle shaking, ATP is added to a final concentration of 50 μM and the reaction continued at 37 °C for an additional 1 hour. The plate is centrifuged at 250 × g for 10 minutes (4 °C) to remove the ATM-containing beads, and the supernatant is removed and transferred to a white opaque 96-well plate and incubated at room temperature for 1.5 hours to allow glutathione S-transferase-p53N66 binding. This plate is then washed with PBS, blotted dry, and analyzed by a standard ELISA technique with a phospho-serine 15 p53 antibody. The detection of phosphorylated glutathione S-transferase-p53N66 substrate is performed in combination with a goat antimouse horseradish peroxidase-conjugated secondary antibody. Enhanced chemiluminescence solution is used to produce a signal and chemiluminescent detection is carried out.

* 1 mg/ml means slightly soluble or insoluble.
* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
