|Description||GSK1070916 is a reversible and ATP-competitive inhibitor of Aurora B/C with IC50 of 3.5 nM/6.5 nM. It displays >100-fold selectivity against the closely related Aurora A-TPX2 complex. Phase 1.|
GSK1070916 selectively inhibits Aurora B and Aurora C with Ki of 0.38 nM and 1.5 nM over Aurora A with Ki of 490 nM. Inhibition of Aurora B and Aurora C is time-dependent, with an enzyme-inhibitor dissociation half-life of >480 min and 270 min respectively. In addition, GSK1070916 is also a competitive inhibitor with respect to ATP.  Human tumor cells treated with GSK1070916 shows dose-dependent inhibition of phosphorylation on serine 10 of Histone H3, a substrate specific for Aurora B. Moreover, GSK1070916 inhibits the proliferation of tumor cells with EC50 values of <10 nM in over 100 cell lines spanning a broad range of tumor types, with a median EC50 of 8 nM. Although GSK1070916 has potent activity against proliferating cells, a dramatic shift in potency is observed in primary, nondividing, normal human vein endothelial cells. Furthermore, GSK1070916-treated cells do not arrest in mitosis but instead fails to divide and become polyploid, ultimately leading to apoptosis.  In another study, it is also reported high chromosome number associated with resistance to the inhibition of Aurora B and C suggests cells with a mechanism to bypass the high ploidy checkpoint are resistant to GSK1070916. 
|In vivo||GSK1070916 (25, 50, or 100 mg/kg) shows dose-dependent inhibition of phosphorylation of an Aurora B–specific substrate in mice and consistent with its broad cellular activity, has antitumor effects in 10 human tumor xenograft models including breast, colon, lung, and two leukemia models. |
Kinase Assay:The ability of GSK1070916 to inhibit the Aurora enzymes is measured using in vivo kinase assays. The assays measure the ability of Aurora A, Aurora B and Aurora C to phosphorylate a synthetic peptide substrate. Biotin-Ahx-RARRRLSFFFFAKKK-NH2 is used for the Aurora A–TPX2 LEADseekerTM assay and 5FAM-PKAtide is used for the IMAPTM assay for all three Aurora kinases. To take into account time-dependent inhibition of Aurora enzymes, Aurora A–TPX2, Aurora B–INCENP and Aurora C–INCENP are incubated with GSK1070916 at various concentrations for 30 min before the reactions are initiated with the addition of substrates. For the Aurora A LEADseekerTM assay, final assay conditions are 0.5 nM Aurora A–TPX2, 1 μM peptide substrate, 6 mM MgCl2, 1.5 μM ATP, 0.003 μCi/μL [γ-33P] ATP in 50 mM Hepes, pH 7.2, 0.15 mg/mL BSA, 0.01% Tween-20, 5 mM DTT and 25 mM KCl. The reactions are incubated at room temperature (25 °C) for 120 min and terminated by the addition of LEADseekerTM beads in PBS containing EDTA (final concentration 2 mg/mL beads and 25 mM EDTA). The plates are then sealed, and the beads are allowed to settle overnight. Product formation is quantified using a Viewlux Imager. For the IMAPTM assays, Aurora A–TPX2 (final concentration 1 nM), Aurora B–INCENP (final concentration 2 nM) or Aurora C–INCENP (final concentration 2.5 nM) is added to the compound-containing plates in 5 μL of buffer (25 mM Hepes, pH 7.2, for Aurora A, 25 mM Hepes, pH 7.5, for Aurora B and 20 mM Hepes, pH 7.2, for Aurora C) containing 0.15 mg/mL BSA, 0.01% Tween 20 and 25 mM NaCl. This mixture is incubated at room temperature for 30 min. To start the reaction, 5 μL of a substrate solution is added containing the same Hepes buffer as used for the pre-incubation, 25 mM NaCl, MgCl2 (2, 4 and 4 mM for Aurora A, B and C respectively), DTT (4, 4 and 2 mM for Aurora A, B and C respectively), ATP (4, 4 and 10 μM for Aurora A, B and C respectively), 200 nM 5FAM-PKAtide, 0.01% Tween 20 and 0.15 mg/mL BSA. The reactions are incubated at room temperature for 120 min for Aurora A and B and 60 min for Aurora C. These reactions are then terminated by the addition of 10 μL of 1:500 (1:600 for Aurora C) Progressive Binding Reagent in 95% Progressive Binding Buffer A and 5% Progressive Binding Buffer B. Plates are incubated at room temperature for approx. 90–120 min (time allowed for equilibrium to be reached). Plates are read in a Molecular Devices Analyst plate reader in fluorescence polarization mode.

* 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.
