Biological Activity

Description KU-0060648 is a dual inhibitor of DNA-PK and PI3Kα, PI3Kβ, PI3Kδ with IC50 of 8.6 nM and 4 nM, 0.5 nM, 0.1 nM respectively, less inhibition of PI3Kγ with IC50 of 0.59 μM.
Targets PI3Kδ [1] PI3Kβ [1] PI3Kα [1] DNA-PK [2] PI3Kγ [1]
IC50 0.1 nM 0.5 nM 4 nM 8.6 nM 0.59 μM
In vitro KU-0060648 exhibits differential effects on growth inhibition, but is not profoundly cytotoxic in a panel of human cancer cell lines. It inhibits DNA-PK and PI-3K with greater potency in MCF7 than SW620 cell using cell-based assays. Five-day exposure to 1 mM KU-0060648 inhibits cell proliferation by more than 95% in MCF7 cells but only by 55% in SW620 cells. In clonogenic survival assays, KU-0060648 increases the cytotoxicity of etoposide and doxorubicin across the panel of DNA-PKcs-proficient cells, but not in DNA-PKcs-deficient cells, confirming that enhanced cytotoxicity of the topoisomerase II poisons etoposide and doxorubicin is due to DNA-PK inhibition. [1]
In vivo KU-0060648 enhances the anti-tumour activity of etoposide in both MCF7 and SW620 xenograft models, and has single-agent activity in the MCF7 xenograft model. [1]

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.

Rat dose (mg/kg) = mouse dose (22.4 mg/kg) ×  mouse Km(3)  = 11.2 mg/kg
