  • RU-SKI 43 blocks Shh signaling. (a) RU-SKI 43 blocks Gli activation. NIH 3T3 cells were cotransfected with vectors encoding 8× Gli-binding site (GliBS)-Firefly luciferase (unless indicated otherwise), Renilla luciferase reporter (pRL-TK) and Shh. Confluent cells were treated with DMSO, 10 μM LDE225, 10 μM RU-SKI 43 or 10 μM C-2. The firefly luciferase (FL)/Renilla luciferase (RL) ratio in cell lysates was calculated and normalized to that measured in DMSO-treated samples; error bars represent mean ± s.d. (n = 2–3).

    Western blot analysis on total cell lysates from renal cancer cell lines treated with NVP-LDE225 at different concentrations. Densitometric measurements were normalised to b-actin and reported under western blot images.

  • NVP-LDE225, everolimus, sunitinib, and their combination interfere with actin and with intracellular organisation of focal adhesion points. Cytoskeleton organisation of 786-O SuR treated with NVP-LDE225 ( 2.5 uM ), everolimus (1 uM ), sunitinib (1 uM ), and their combination for 24 h was analysed by confocal microscopy. Actin-based structures were revealed by rhodaminated phalloidin staining (red fluorescence). Localisation of focal adhesion points was obtained by immunofluorescent staining of p-paxillin (green fluorescence). Merged row images show overlapping of p-paxillin and actin signals. Moreover, all captures were shown in transmitted light. Scale bars, 10 um.

In vivo Sonidegib (Erismodegib, NVP-LDE225) is highly bound to mouse, rat, and human plasma proteins (>99%) and moderately bound to dog and monkey plasma proteins (77 and 85%, respectively). LDE225 has high permeability (90.8% in man) in the PAMPA assay. LDE225 shows good oral bioavailability ranging from 69 to 102% in preclinical species when dosed in solution. LDE225 is a weak base with a measured pKa of 4.20 and exhibits relatively poor aqueous solubility. LDE225 demonstrates dose-related antitumor activity. At a dose of 5 mg/kg/day qd, LDE225 significantly inhibits tumor growth, corresponding to a T/C value of 33%. When dosed at 10 and 20 mg/kg/day qd, LDE225 gives rise to 51 and 83% regression, respectively. Gli1 mRNA inhibition correlates with tumor and plasma exposure of LDE225. LDE225 successfully penetrates the blood−brain barrier in tumor-bearing animals and results in tumor growth inhibition after 4 days of treatment. [1] LDE225 significantly reduces the tumor volume by 95.7% in Rip1-Tag2 mice. LDE225 prolongs survival in Rip1Tag2 mice. LDE225 decreases expression of stromal markers in the LDE225-treated mice.

  • Cell lines: TM3Hh12 cells
  • Concentrations: ~10 μM
  • Incubation Time: 30 minutes
  • Method:

    LDE225 is prepared for assay by serial dilution in DMSO and then added to empty assay plates. TM3Hh12 cells (TM3 cells containing Hh-responsive reporter gene construct pTA-8xGli-Luc) are cultured in F12 Ham's/DMEM (1:1) containing 5% horse serum, 2.5% fetal bovine serum (FBS), and 15 mM HEPES, pH 7.3. Cells are harvested by trypsin treatment, resuspended in F12 Ham's/DMEM (1:1) containing 5% horse serum and 15 mM HEPES, pH 7.3, added to assay plates, and incubated with LDE225 for approximately 30 min at 37 °C in 5% CO2. Then 1 nM or 25 nM Ag1.5 is added to assay plates and incubated at 37 °C in the presence of 5% CO2. After 48 hours, either Bright-Glo or MTS reagent is added to the assay plates and luminescence or absorbance at 492 nm is determined. IC50 values, defined as the inflection point of the logistic curve, are determined by nonlinear regression of the Gli-driven luciferase luminescence or absorbance signal from MTS assay vs log10 (concentration) of LDE225 using the R statistical software pack
