Product Description

Biological Activity

Description PTC-209 HBr is the hydrobromide salt of PTC-209, which is a potent and selective BMI-1 inhibitor with IC50 of 0.5 μM, and results in irreversible reduction of cancer-initiating cells (CICs).
Targets BMI-1 [1]
IC50 0.5 μM
In vitro PTC-209 inhibits both the UTR-mediated reporter expression and endogenous BMI-1 expression in human colorectal HCT116 and human fibrosarcoma HT1080 tumor cells. PTC-209 decreases colorectal tumor cell growth in a BMI-1-dependent way. In addition, PTC-209 impairs colorectal cancer-initiating cells (CICs) through irreversible growth inhibition. [1]
In vivo PTC-209 (60 mg/kg/day, s.c.) effectively inhibits BMI-1 production in tumor tissue, and halts growth of preestablished tumors in mice bearing primary human colon cancer xenograft, human colon cancer cell lines LIM1215 or HCT116 xenografts. PTC-209 also reduces the frequency of functional colorectal CICs in vivo. [1]
Features BMI-1-selective inhibitor, targeting the BMI-1 self-renewal machinery.

Protocol(Only for Reference)

Kinase Assay: [1]

Untranslated region-mediated luciferase reporter expression HEK293 cells are transfected with a GEMS reporter vector that contains the luciferase open-reading frame flanked by and under post-transcriptional control of the BMI-1 5′ and 3′ UTRs. The resulting stable cells (F8) are treated with PTC-209 or vehicle control overnight, and then luciferase reporter activity is determined using Bright-Glo assays. The assays are run in triplicate for each point, and the percentage of inhibition was calculated against vehicle control.

Cell Assay: [1]

Cell lines Human lymphoma U937 and HT1080 tumor cells, primary human peripheral blood mononuclear cells and human hematopoietic stem cells.
Concentrations ~10 μM
Incubation Time 4 days
Method To determine whether pretreatment with the inhibitor affects tumor cell growth, cells are plated with the inhibitor for 4 d in vitro and plated in limiting doses in vitro without adding further inhibitor. Trypan blue exclusion is used to count viable cells. The in vitro sphere-initiating cell frequency is calculated after inhibitor treatment by evaluating the number of wells containing spheres. For the experiments where LDAs are set up following recovery of PTC-209 treated cells, 6-well plates were seeded with 1E6 cells per well and incubated overnight. Cells are subsequently treated for 4 d in triplicate with either DMSO vehicle or PTC-209 (0.01, 0.1, 1 and 10 μM). Drug treatments are washed off and 4 mL fresh suspension medium added to all wells. To assess cell viability following the 4 d treatment window, cells are trypsinized and counted at 0, 24, 72 and 120 h after removal of the drug. Long-lasting effects of the drug treatment on sphere-forming ability are assessed by plating LDAs (50,000, 10,000, 1,000,100, 10 and 1 cell per well) using the cells obtained 120 h after the 4-d drug treatment.

Animal Study: [1]

Animal Models Primary human colon cancer xenograft, human colon cancer cell lines LIM1215 and HCT116 xenografts in nude mice.
Formulation 14% DMSO, 36% polyethylene glycol 400 and 50% polypropylene glycol.
Dosages ~60 mg/kg/day
Administration s.c.

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
