Product Description

Biological Activity

Description MLN0905 is a potent inhibitor of PLK1 with IC50 of 2 nM.
Targets PLK1 [1]
IC50 2 nM
In vitro MLN0905 is a potent inhibitor of PLK1 with IC50 of 2 nM. MLN0905 inhibits cell mitosis with EC50 of 9 nM. MLN0905 inhibits Cdc25C-T96 phosphorylation, a direct readout of PLK1 inhibition with EC50 of 29 nM. MLN0905 inhibits HT-29 viability with LD50 of 22 nM. MLN0905 possesses reasonable selectivity against a panel of 359 kinases. [1] MLN0905 inhibits a panel of lymphoma cells viability with IC50 of 3 – 24 nM. [2]
In vivo Nude mice bearing HT-29 xenografts administered with MLN0905 (6.25 mg/Kg - 50 mg/Kg, p.o.) shows dose-dependent pharmacodynamic responses (48 hours after treatment). OCI LY-19-Luc tumor bearing mice administered with MLN0905 (3.12 mg/Kg – 6.25 mg/Kg, p.o.) shows significant pharmacodynamic responses amd peaks at 8 hours after treatment. [1] MLN0905 shows antitumor efficacy in treatment with OCI LY-19-Luc xenografts bearing scid mice for 21 days. The T/C of 6.25 mg/Kg daily group is 0.15. [2]

Protocol(Only for Reference)

Kinase Assay: [1]

PLK1 Flash Plate Assay The human PLK1 enzymatic reaction totaling 30μL contained 50 mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0), 10 mM MgCl2, 0.02% BSA, 10% glycerol, 1 mM DTT, 100 mM NaCl, 3.3% DMSO, 8 μM ATP, 0.2μCi [γ- 33 P]-ATP, 4μM peptide substrate (Biotin-AHX-LDETGHLDSSGLQEVHLA-CONH2), and 10 nM recombinant human PLK1[2–369]T210D. The enzymatic reaction mixture, with or without PLK inhibitors, is incubated for 2.5 h at 30℃before termination with 20μL of 150 mM EDTA. Then 25μL of the stopped enzyme reaction mixture is transferred to a 384-well streptavidin coated Image FlashPlate and incubated at room temperature for 3 h. The Image Flash Plate wells are washed three times with 0.02% Tween-20 and then read on the Perkin-Elmer Viewlux.

Cell Assay: [1]

Cell lines HT-29
Incubation Time 72 h
Method Eight μL of serially diluted test compounds are added to75μL of HT29 (2.66 × 10 4 cells/well) cells in McCoy’s 5A media supplemented with 10% Fetal Calf Serum in Biocoat Poly-D lysine 384 well Black/Clear plates. Cells are incubated for 72 h at 37 ℃. Supernatant is aspirated from the wells, leaving 25μL in each well. ATP-lite 1 step reagent is added to each well, and luminescence for each plate is read on the LeadSeeker. Percent inhibition is calculated using the values from a DMSO control set to 100%.

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
