BIX 01294

Catalog No.S8006

BIX01294 is an inhibitor of G9a histone methyltransferase with IC50 of 2.7 μM in a cell-free assay, reduces H3K9me2 of bulk histones, also weakly inhibits GLP (primarily H3K9me3), no significant activity observed at other histone methyltransferases.

Biological Activity

Description BIX01294 is an inhibitor of G9a histone methyltransferase with IC50 of 2.7 μM in a cell-free assay, reduces H3K9me2 of bulk histones, also weakly inhibits GLP (primarily H3K9me3), no significant activity observed at other histone methyltransferases.
Targets G9a [1]
(Cell-free assay)
IC50 2.7 μM
In vitro BIX01294 is a selective inhibitor of G9a histone methyltransferase and does not affect SUV39H1(H320R) and PRMT1 within the tested concentration range. BIX-01294 specifically inhibited G9a (H3K9me2) and, to a lesser extent, the closely related GLP enzyme (primarily H3K9me3), with an IC50 of 1.7 μM for G9a and 38 μM for GLP. BIX-01294 inhibits G9a in an uncompetitive manner with SAM. BIX-01294 (4.1μM) reduces H3K9me2 Levels in Bulk Histone Preparations from wt ES cells, mouse embryonic fibroblasts and HeLa cells, but not in G9a deficient stem cells. BIX-01294 is a valuable inhibitor for the transient modulation of chromosomal H3K9me2. BIX-01294 Reduces H3K9me2 at Several G9a Target Genes including Bim1 and Serac1. [1] BIX01294 could reactivate expression of HIV-1 from latently infected cells such as ACH-2 and OM10.1. [2]

Protocol(Only for Reference)

Kinase Assay: [1]

HMTase Assays Dissociation Enhanced Lanthanide Fluoro-ImmunoAssays (DELFIA) are performed in white, opaque 384-well plates coated with Neutravidin. Test compounds are diluted to 12 μg/ml in 50mM Tris-HCl pH 8.5containing 4% DMSO and 10 μl isdispensed into the wells. Blank and control wells received only compound buffer. GST-G9a at 10 μg/ml and SAM at 40 μM are diluted in 50mM Tris HCl pH 8.5/10 mM DTT and added in a volume of 20 μL. Blank wells received Tris/DTT buffer only. The reactions are initiated by the addition of 800 nM H3(1-20)-cysbiotin substrate in 50 mM Tris pH 8.5 in a volume of 10 μl, and incubated at room temperature for 60 minutes. The plates are washed 3 times with 100 μl of Wash Buffer. Next, 50 μl of Fluoroimmunoassay (FI) Buffer containing 5ng α-2X-di-meth H3-K9 and 5ng goat anti-rabbit Eu chelate isadded to all wells of the plate, and the plate isincubated for an additional hour at room temperature. The plates are washed 3 times with 100 μL of Wash Buffer, and 50 μl of Enhancement Solution isadded to each well. Time resolved fluorescence ismeasured after 45 minutes on a Viewlux Microplate Imager imaging for 15 second.

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
