Product Description

Biological Activity

Description PFK15 is a potent and selective 6-phosphofructo-2-kinase (PFKFB3) inhibitor with IC50 of 207 nM.
Targets PFKFB3 [1]
IC50 207 nM
In vitro PFK15 produces potent growth inhibition in a series of cancer cells. In Jurkat T-cell leukemia cells and H522 lung adenocarcinoma cells, PFK15 also reduces F26BP, glucose uptake, and intracellular ATP level. [1]
In vivo In vivo, PFK15 has adequate pharmacokinetic properties. PFK15 (25 mg/kg i.p.) suppresses the growth, metastatic spread, and glucose metabolism of LLC tumors in syngeneic mice. In three human xenograft models of cancer in athymic mice, PFK15 also yields antitumor effects that are comparable to approved chemotherapeutic agents. [1]

Protocol(Only for Reference)

Kinase Assay:


Recombinant PFKFB3 assay Kinase reactions are conducted by incubating 13 ng of recombinant human PFKFB3 protein in a reaction mix containing 10 μmol/L ATP, 10 μmol/L F6P, and either dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) vehicle control, 3PO, or PFK15 for 1 hour at room temperature. Kinase activity is measured with the Adapta Universal Kinase Assay per manufacturer

Cell Assay:


Cell lines 59 cancer cell lines
Concentrations ~30 μM
Incubation Time 48 hours

Viability is determined using trypan blue exclusion. Cells were incubated in 20% trypan blue for 5 minutes. Cells excluding trypan blue are counted using a standard hemocytometer to determine the total number of viable cells. Experiments are conducted in triplicate.

Animal Study:


Animal Models C57Bl/6 mice bearing LLC xenografts, Balb/C athymic mice bearing CT26, U-87 MG, or BxPC-3 xenografts.
Formulation DMSO
Dosages 25 mg/kg every 3 days
Administration i.p.

Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A Km

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
