  • Knockdown of BRCA1 sensitizes cells to PI3K/AKT pathway inhibitors. MCF7 cells transfected with either BRCA1-siRNA or control-siRNA were treated with increasing amounts of inhibitors targeting the PI3K/AKT pathway for 48 h in triplicate. Viable cells were measured by MTT assay.

    DW compounds dose-dependently and persistently blocked the PI3K/mTOR signaling pathway in RH30 cells. DW09849 persistently inhibited PI3K signaling. RH30 cells treated with 0.1 uM DW09849 or PIK-75 were harvested at indicated times (0, 0.25, 0.75, 1.5, 3, 6, 12, and 24 hours). Western blot analyses were conducted to detect the indicated proteins. Data shown are representative of three independent experiments. Con, concentration.

  • For MTT assays, cells (2,000 ~ 5,000 cells/well) were subcultured into 96-well plates according to their growth properties. Cell proliferation was assayed at 72 hr after treatment of PIK-75 by adding 20 μl of 5 mg/ml 3-(4,5-Dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) solution per 100 μl of growth medium. After incubating for 3-4 h at 37°C, the media were removed and 150 µl/well of MTT solvent (either absolute DMSO or isopropanol containing 4 mM HCl and 0.1% Nonidet-40) was added to dissolve the formazan.

Biological Activity

Description PIK-75 is a p110α inhibitor with IC50 of 5.8 nM (200-fold more potently than p110β), isoform-specific mutants at Ser773, and also potently inhibits DNA-PK with IC50 of 2 nM in cell-free assays.

PIK-75 shows the impressive potency and isoform selectivity at p110α while the corresponding IC50 values are 1300 nM, 76 nM and 510 nM for other PI3K isoforms, p110β, -γ, and -δ, respectively. Furthermore, when binding to purified p110α, PIK-75 is a noncompetitive inhibitor with respect to ATP with Ki of 36 nM and competitive with respect to the substrate PI with Ki of 2.3 nM. [1] PIK-75 also shows potent inhibition of DNA-PK. [2] PIK-75 (1 μM) reduces cell survival by significantly decreasing mitochondrial activity in unstimulated nonasthmatic airway smooth muscle (ASM) cells, asthmatic ASM cells, and lung fibroblasts. While in TGFβ-stimulated ASM cells, PIK75 only decreases mitochondrial activity in asthmatic cells without effects in nonasthmatic cells. [3] A recent study shows that PIK-75 (10 nM) inhibits TNF-α-induced CD38 mRNA expression and significantly attenuates of TNF-α-induced ADP-ribosyl cyclase activity in human airway smooth muscle cells. [4]

In vivo In the ErbB3WT tumor model, PIK-75 reduces in vitro chemotactic response to HRGβ1 and lowers pAkt levels by 40%. Besides, PIK-75 significantly reduces tumor cell motility and in vivo invasion in ErbB3WT primary tumors. [5] In the CD1 male mice, PIK-75 leads to serious impairments in the insulin tolerance test (ITT) and glucose tolerance test (GTT), and an increase in glucose production during a pyruvate tolerance test (PTT).

Inhibition Assays:

The PI3K inhibitor PIK-75 is dissolved at 10 mM in dimethyl sulfoxide and stored at −20°C until use. PI3K enzyme activity is determined in 50 μL of 20 mM HEPES, pH 7.5, and 5 mM MgCl2 containing 180 μM phosphatidyl inositol, with the reaction started by the addition of 100 μM ATP (containing 2.5 μCi of [γ-32P]ATP). After a 30-minute incubation at room temperature, the enzyme reaction is stopped by the addition of 50 μL of 1 M HCl. Phospholipids are then extracted with 100 μL of chloroform/methanol [1:1 (v/v)] and 250 μL of 2 M KCl followed by liquid scintillation counting. Inhibitors are diluted in 20% (v/v) dimethyl sulfoxide to generate a concentration versus inhibition of enzyme activity curve, which is then analyzed with the use of Prism version 5.00 for Windows to calculate the IC50. For kinetic analysis, a luminescent assay measuring ATP consumption is used. PI3K enzyme activity is determined in 50 μL of 20 mM HEPES, pH 7.5, and 5 mM MgCl2 with PI and ATP at various concentrations. After a 60-minute incubation at room temperature, the reaction is stopped by the addition of 50 μL of Kinase-Glo followed by a further 15-minute incubation. Luminescence is then read using a Fluostar plate reader. Results are analyzed using Prism.

  • Cell lines: A2780, A2780/cp70, 2780AD, HCT116, HT29, WIL, CALU-3, MCF7, PC3 and HS852 cells
  • Concentrations: 0-10 μM
  • Incubation Time: 48 hours
  • Method: Mitochondrial activity is assessed after stimulation with TGFβ with or without inhibitors for 48 hours using the 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium (MTT) assay. Harvested washed cells are resuspended in DMEM-lO% FCS and aliquoted (500 μL) into 24-well cluster plates prior to serial dilution (1:2) in duplicates. To each well, 100 μL of an appropriate MTT concentration (dissolved in PBS and filtered through a 0.2 μm filter before use to remove any blue formazan product) is added immediately after diluting the cells, which are then incubated for 3.5 hours at 37 °C. The resulting blue formazan product is solubilized overnight (16 hours) at 37 °C by the addition of 500 μL of 10% sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) in 0.01 M HCl to each well. A sample (150 μL) from each duplicate well is transferred to a 96-well microplate, and the optical density determinedby automated spectrophotometry against a reagent blank (no cells). Absorbance is measured at a test wavelength of 570 nm and a reference wavelength of 690 nm. For each primary cell culture, results from three to six wells from each treatment are averaged, and data are expressed as absorbance 570 to 690 nm.
