GSK690693 is a pan-Akt inhibitor targeting Akt1/2/3 with IC50 of 2 nM/13 nM/9 nM in cell-free assays, also sensitive to the AGC kinase family: PKA, PrkX and PKC isozymes. GSK690693 also potently inhibits AMPK and DAPK3 from the CAMK family with IC50 of 50 nM and 81 nM, respectively. GSK690693 affects Unc-51-like autophagy activating kinase 1 (ULK1) activity, robustly inhibits STING-dependent IRF3 activation. Phase 1.

GSK690693 is very selective for the Akt isoforms versus the majority of kinases in other families. However, GSK690693 is less selective for members of the AGC kinase family including PKA, PrkX, and PKC isozymes with IC50 of 24 nM, 5 nM, and 2-21 nM, respectively. GSK690693 also potently inhibits AMPK and DAPK3 from the CAMK family with IC50 of 50 nM and 81 nM, respectively, and PAK4, 5, and 6 from the STE family with IC50 of 10 nM, 52 nM, and 6 nM, respectively. GSK690693 inhibits the phosphorylation of GSK3β in tumor cells with IC50 ranging from 43 nM to 150 nM. GSK690693 treatment leads to a dose-dependent increase in the nuclear accumulation of the transcription factor FOXO3A. GSK690693 potently inhibits the proliferation of T47D, ZR-75-1, BT474, HCC1954, MDA-MB-453, and LNCaP cells with IC50 of 72 nM, 79 nM, 86 nM, 119 nM, 975 nM, and 147 nM, respectively. GSK690693 treatment induces apoptosis at concentrations >100 nM in both LNCaP and BT474 cells.  Consistent with the role of AKT in cell survival, GSK690693 induces apoptosis in sensitive ALL cell lines. 
A single administration of GSK690693 inhibits GSK3β phosphorylation in human breast carcinoma (BT474) xenografts in a dose- and time-dependent manner. Similarly, GSK690693 induces a reduction in phosphorylation of the Akt substrates, PRAS40, and FKHR/FKHRL1. GSK690693 also results in an acute increase in blood glucose, returning to baseline 8 to 10 hours after drug administration. Administration of GSK690693 induces reductions in phosphorylated Akt substrates in vivo, and potently inhibits the growth of human SKOV-3 ovarian, LNCaP prostate, and BT474 and HCC-1954 breast carcinoma xenografts, with maximal inhibition of 58% to 75% at the dose of 30 mg/kg/day.  GSK690693 exhibits efficacy irrespective of the mechanism of Akt activation involved. GSK690693 is most effective in delaying tumor progression in Lck-MyrAkt2 mice expressing a membrane-bound, constitutively active form of Akt. 
In vitro kinase assays:His-tagged full-length Akt1, 2, or 3 are expressed and purified from baculovirus. Activation is carried out with purified PDK1 to phosphorylate Thr308 and purified MK2 to phosphorylate Ser473. To more accurately measure time-dependent inhibition of Akt, activated Akt enzymes are incubated with GSK690693 at various concentrations at room temperature for 30 minutes before the reaction is initiated with the addition of substrate. Final reaction contains 5 nM to 15 nM Akt1, 2, and 3 enzymes; 2 μM ATP; 0.15 μCi/μL[γ-33P]ATP; 1 μM Peptide (Biotin-aminohexanoicacid-ARKR-ERAYSFGHHA-amide); 10 mM MgCl2; 25 mM MOPS (pH 7.5); 1 mM DTT; 1 mM CHAPS; and 50 mM KCl. The reactions are incubated at room temperature for 45 minutes, followed by termination with Leadseeker beads in PBS containing EDTA (final concentration, 2 mg/mL beads and 75 mM EDTA). The plates are then sealed, the beads are allowed to settle for at least 5 hours, and product formation is quantitated using a Viewlux Imager.

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 SDS / 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 SDS / 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why pAKT increased after treatment of the inhibitor ?
GSK690693 actually inhibits AKT, but not necessarily decrease p-Akt level. Treatment with GSK690693 caused AKT hyper phosphorylation which has already been reported in some papers. (For example, http://www.bloodjournal.org/content/113/8/1723.short?sso-checked=true). To test the inhibition of AKT activity, you might have to look at the level of AKT substrates.
