ZM 447439 is a selective and ATP-competitive inhibitor for Aurora A and Aurora B with IC50 of 110 nM and 130 nM, respectively. It is more than 8-fold selective for Aurora A/B than MEK1, Src, Lck and has little effect against CDK1/2/4, Plk1, Chk1, etc.

p31comet depletion delays MCC disassembly even with the proteasome inhibited. (A) FACS analysis of HeLa Tet-on cells transfected with control or p31comet siRNA and then treated with Taxol followed by Aurora B inhibition with ZM447439. The percentage of mitotic cells (cells that have 4N DNA content and are MPM2 positive) is shown for each sample.
Mol Biol Cell 2011 22, 4227-35. ZM 447439 purchased from Selleck.
HeLa cells were treated with Nocodazole (100ng/ml) (Lanes 2-4) or Taxol (1µM) (Lanes 6-8) or DMSO (lanes 1, 5) for 16h. The indicated inhibitors were added for 2h (1 µM) before harvesting the cells. The p-Aurora-A (T288), B (T232), C (T198) antibody was from Cell Signaling (#2914). MK5108 is an Aurora-A inhibitor. VX680 inhibits all three Aurora kinases. ZM447439 inhibits both Aurora-B and -C kinases, but not Aurora-A kinase.

|Description||ZM 447439 is a selective and ATP-competitive inhibitor for Aurora A and Aurora B with IC50 of 110 nM and 130 nM, respectively. It is more than 8-fold selective for Aurora A/B than MEK1, Src, Lck and has little effect against CDK1/2/4, Plk1, Chk1, etc.|
|Features||An Aurora selective ATP-competitive inhibitor.|
In vitro, ZM-447439 selectively inhibits recombinant human Aurora A and B with IC50 values of 110 and 130 nM, respectively, while other protein kinases of diverse structural types including the mitotic kinases CDK1 and PLK1 are inhibited with IC50 values >10 μM.  Aurora kinase inhibitor, ZM-447439 time- and dose-dependently inhibits the growth of all three cell lines with IC50 values of 3 μM (BON), 0.9 μM (QGP-1) and 3 μM (MIP-101) after 72 hours of continuous exposure. In addition, ZM-447439 potently induces cell apoptosis by promoting DNA fragmentation and caspase 3 and 7 activation, and arrests GEP-NET cells in the G0 /G1and G2/M phase of the cell cycle.  In mouse embryo, inhibition of Aurora kinase activity by ZM-447439 results in abnormalities during mitosis by regulating the phosphorylation of histone H3 serine 10 (H3S10Ph) from G2 to metaphase with different perturbations in each embryonic cycle.  A recent study shows that ZM-447439 exhibits growth inhibitory and proapoptotic effect on cervical cancer SiHa cells, and enhances the chemosensitivity to cisplatin. 
In vitro kinase assays :Recombinant Aurora A and B are expressed as NH2-terminal His6-tagged fusion proteins using a baculovirus expression system. Aurora A is purified by affinity chromatography using Ni-NTA agarose, and Aurora B is purified by ion exchange chromatography using CM Sepharose Fast Flow. 1 ng purified recombinant enzyme is added to a reaction cocktail containing 25 mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.5, 12.5 mM KCl, 2.5 mM NaF, 0.6 mM DTT, 6.25 mM MnCl2, 10 μM peptide substrate, 10 μM for Aurora A or 5 μM ATP for Aurora B, and 0.2 μCi γ-[33P]ATP (specific activity ≥2,500 Ci/mmol), and is then incubated at RT for 60 minutes. Reactions are stopped by addition of 20% phosphoric acid, and the products are captured on P30 nitrocellulose filters and assayed for incorporation of 33P with a BetaplateTM counter. No enzyme and no compound control values are used to determine the concentration of ZM447439, which gave 50% inhibition of enzyme activity.

* 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.
