Product Description

Biological Activity

Description IPA-3 is a selective non-ATP competitive Pak1 inhibitor with IC50 of 2.5 μM in a cell-free assay, no inhibition to group II PAKs (PAKs 4-6).
Targets PAK1 [1]
(Cell-free assay)
IC50 2.5 μM
In vitro IPA-3 is a non ATP-competitive, allosteric inhibitor of p21-activated kinase 1 (Pak1). PIR3.5 is the control compound of IPA-3. IPA-3 prevents Cdc42-stimulated Pak1 autophosphorylation on Thr423. IPA-3 also prevents sphingosine-dependent Pak1 autophosphorylation. IPA-3 does not target exposed cysteine residues on Pak1. The disulfide bond of IPA-3 is critical for inhibition of Pak1 and in vitro reduction by the reducing agent dithiothreitol (DTT) abolishes Pak1 inhibition by IPA-3. IPA-3 inhibits activation of Pak1 by diverse activators, but does not inhibit preactivated Pak1. IPA-3 inhibits PDGF-stimulated Pak activation in mouse embryonic fibroblasts. [1] IPA-3 inhibits Pak1 activation in part by binding covalently to the regulatory domain of Pak1. IPA-3 binds Pak1 covalently in a time- and temperature-dependent manner. IPA-3 prevents binding of the Pak1 activator Cdc42. IPA-3 binds directly to the Pak1 autoregulatory domain. IPA-3 reversibly inhibits PMA-induced membrane ruffling in cells. [2]
In vivo
Features IPA-3 binds covalently to the Pak1 regulatory domain and prevents binding to the upstream activator Cdc42.

Protocol(Only for Reference)

Kinase Assay: [1]

Kinase assay Pak1 (150 nM final) is pre-incubated with MBP (8.3 μM), indicated proteins, and IPA-3 or DMSO in Kinase buffer for 20 minutes at 4°C. Cdc42-GTPγS (3.2 μM) is then added and the reaction is pre-equilibrated 10 minutes at 30 °C. Kinase reactions are started by the addition of ATP (to 30 μM) containing [32P]ATP and are incubated 10 min and analyzed by SDS-PAGE and autoradiography.

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.
