(a) HEK-293 cells expressing V5-EXO1 were synchronized in different phases of the cell cycle. EXO1 was immunoprecipitated (IP) with anti-V5 antibody and Western blotted with anti-phospho-Ser (p-SP) or anti-phospho-Thr (p-TP) CDK substrate antibodies, as indicated. “+AZD” indicates cells pre-treated with the CDK inhibitor AZD5438 prior to analysis. (b) HEK-293 cells expressing V5-EXO1, synchronized in G2, were pre-treated with CDK inhibitors, AZD5438 or Roscovitine, prior to analysis of EXO1 phosphorylation by IP-Western.

The CDK inhibitor AZD5438 also sensitizes L. monocytogenes to β-lactam treatment through inhibition of PrkA. Autophosphorylation (arrow) and MBP phosphorylation (asterisk) activities were assayed for PrkA in the presence or absence of 2-fold serial dilutions of AZD5438.

Different breast cancer cell lines were seeded in 96 well plates and treated with different concentrations of AZD5438. After 72h, cell viability was assessed by MTT. Data shows that these cancer cell lines were sensitive to CDK1/2/9 inhibition, however the most aggressive (SUM159 and MDA-MB-231) cells were less susceptible.

AZD5438 exerted antitumor effect in case 168 accompanied by reduction of expression of CDK2, CCNE1, and phosphorylated retinoblastoma (pRb). Whereas in case number 111, slight reduction of CDK2 but no impact on level of CCNE1 or pRB.

Western blot illustrating PARP1 cleavage in SW48 KRAS WT and p.G12V mutant cells after 72h of AZD5438 exposure. Cells were exposed to AZD5438 for two hours after which total cell lysates were generated and western blotted as shown. Exposure to camptothecin was used as a positive control.

|Description||AZD5438 is a potent inhibitor of CDK1/2/9 with IC50 of 16 nM/6 nM/20 nM in cell-free assays. It is less potent to CDK5/6 and also inhibits GSK3β. Phase 1.|
|Features||A potent inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) 1, 2, and 9.|
AZD5438 exhibits the potent inhibitory effect on activity of cyclin-dependent kinases including cyclin E-cdk2, cyclin A-cdk2, cyclin B1-cdk1, cyclin D3-cdk6, and cyclin T-cdk9 with IC50 of 6 nM, 45 nM, 16 nM, 21 nM, and 20 nM, respectively. Besides, AZD5438 also inhibits the kinase activity of p25-cdk5 and glycogen synthase kinase 3β with IC50 of 14 nM and 17 nM, respectively.  AZD5438 induces cell cycle arrest by inhibiting phosphorylation of cdk-dependent substrates, and exhibits the broad antiproliferative activity against a range of tumor cell lines including lung, colorectal, breast, prostate, and hematologic tumors with IC50 ranging from 0.2 μM (MCF-7) to 1.7 μM (ARH-77). 
|In vivo||In vivo, oral treatment of AZD5438 leads to statistically significant inhibition against the growth of human tumor xenografts derived from a wide range of different cancer types including breast, colon, lung, prostate, and ovarian with maximum TGI ranging from 38% to 153%.  In the SW620 xenograft model, AZD5438 causes the inhibition of several cell cycle proteins such as, phH3, phosphonucleolin, PP1a, and several phospho-pRb epitopes in a dose-dependent manner. |
Recombinant Kinase Assays :The ability of AZD5438 to inhibit cdk activity is examined using a scintillation proximity assay with recombinant cdk-cyclin complexes of cyclin-Ecdk2, cdk2-cyclin A, cdk4-cyclin D, and recombinant retinoblastoma substrate (amino acids 792-928) or cdk1-cyclin B1 with a peptide substrate derived from the in vitro p34cdc2 phosphorylation site of histone H1 (biotin-X-Pro-Lys-Thr-Pro-Lys-Lys-Ala-Lys-Lys-Leu). The activity of AZD5438 against recombinant cdk5/p25 (at 2 μM ATP) is determined in a scintillation proximity assay-based assay using peptide substrate (AKKPKTPKKAKKLOH). Inhibition of glycogen synthase kinase 3β activity is determined with scintillation proximity assay based on the use of human purified glycogen synthase kinase 3βenzyme and eukaryotic initiation factor 2B substrate (at 1 μM ATP). AZD5438 is screened against active recombinant human cdk6-cyclin D3, cdk7-cyclin H/MAT1 (cdk activating kinase complex), and cdk9-cyclin T using the kinase selectivity screening service.

* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
