|Description||Galeterone is a selective CYP17 inhibitor and androgen receptor (AR) antagonist with IC50 of 300 nM and 384 nM, respectively, and is a potent inhibitor of human prostate tumor growth. Phase 2.|
Galeterone is effective at preventing binding of [3H]-R1881 to the mutant LNCaP AR (T877A) with IC50 of 845 nM. Galeterone inhibits the DHT-induced proliferation of LNCaP and LAPC4 cells in a dose-dependent manner with IC50 of 6 μM and 3.2 μM, respectively.  Galeterone also inhibits the binding of [3H]-R1881 to the T575A mutant AR in PC3 cells with IC50 of 454 nM. Galeterone potently inhibits the proliferation of LNCaP and LAPC4 cells in the absence of DHT stimulation with IC50 of 2.6 μM and 4 μM, respectively. Furthermore, Galeterone treatment increases the degradation rate of the AR in a dose-dependent manner.  Galeterone potently inhibits the growth of the androgen-independent cell lines PC-3 and DU-145 in a dose-dependent manner with GI50 of 7.82 μM and 7.55 μM, respectively. Galeterone induces the endoplasmic reticulum stress response resulting in down-regulation of cyclin D1 protein expression and cyclin E2 mRNA.  Galeterone effectively inhibits proliferation of HP-LNCaP and C4-2B cell lines with IC50 of 2.9 μM and 9.7 μM, respectively. Galeterone treatment at 1 μM effectively inhibits androgen receptor activation in LNCaP cells (50%) and HP-LNCaP cells (70%). Galeterone decreases activation of the androgen receptor in both LNCaP cells and HP-LNCaP cells with IC50 of 1 μM and 411 nM, respectively, and down-regulates androgen receptor protein expression by 50% after 24 hour of treatment.  Galeterone reduces AR protein and mRNA expression, antagonizes AR-dependent promoter activation induced by androgen, and significantly reduces the phospho-4EBP1 levels. 
|In vivo||Administration of Galeterone at 50 mg/kg twice daily is very effective at inhibiting the growth of androgen-dependent LAPC4 human prostate tumor xenograft, with a 93.8% reduction in the mean final tumor volume compared with controls, and it is also significantly more effective than castration.  Treatment of Galeterone (0.13 mM/kg twice daily) or Galeterone (0.13 mmol/kg twice daily) plus castration induces regression of LAPC4 tumor xenografts in SCID mice by 26.55% and 60.67%, respectively. Treatments with Galeterone or Galeterone plus castration causes marked reduction in AR protein of 10- and 5-fold, respectively. |
In vitro assay of CYP17:The in vitro CYP17 inhibitory activity of Galeterone is evaluated using rapid acetic acid releasing assay (AARA), utilizing intact P450c17-expressing E. coli as the enzyme source. It involves the use of [21-3H]-17α-hydroxypregnenolone as the substrate, and CYP17 activity is measured by the amount of tritiated acetic acid formed during the cleavage of the C-21 side chain of the substrate. IC50 value is obtained directly from plots relating percentage inhibition versus inhibitor concentration over appropriate ranges.

* 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.
