Product Description

Biological Activity

Description RVX-208 is a potent BET bromodomain inhibitor with IC50 of 0.510 μM for BD2 in a cell-free assay, about 170-fold selectivity over BD1. Phase 2.
Targets BD2 [1]
(Cell-free assay)
IC50 0.51 μM
In vitro As a BET bromodomain inhibitor, RVX-208 preferentially binds to the second bromodomain found on BET proteins. [1] RVX-208, as a stimulator of apolipoprotein (APO) AI gene expression, increases apoA-I and HDL-C in vitro. [2] [3]

In vivo RVX-208 significantly increases serum apoA-I and HDL-C in AGMs, and enhances cholesterol efflux via different pathways. [3]
Features First-in-class BD2-selective inhibitor of BET bromodomain and has been tested in Phase II clinical trials for treatment of coronary syndromes and atherosclerosis.

Protocol(Only for Reference)

Kinase Assay:


Competitive Histone Displacement Assay (AlphaScreen Assay) Experiments are run on a PHERAstar FS plate reader using an AlphaScreen 680 excitation/570 emission filter set. IC50 values are calculated in Prism 5 after normalization against corresponding DMSO controls. Assays are performed according to the manufacturer’s protocol with minor modifications.

Animal Study:


Animal Models Naïve adult male AGMs
Formulation 1N hydrochloride and carboxymethyl cellulose
Dosages ~60 mg/kg
Administration Oral gavage or intravenous administration

Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)

Body Surface Area (m2)0.0070.0250.
Km factor36128520
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
