JNJ-26481585 exhibits broad spectrum antiproliferative activity in solid and hematologic cancer cell lines, such as all lung, breast, colon, prostate, brain, and ovarian tumor cell lines, with IC50 ranging from 3.1-246 nM, which is more potent than vorinostat, R306465, panobinostat, CRA-24781, or mocetinostat in various human cancer cell lines tested. [1] A recent study shows that JNJ-26481585 promotes myeloma cell death at low nanomolar concentrations by resulting in Mcl-1 depletion and Hsp72 induction. [2]

The effects of quisinostat on the expressions of HDACs in HCC cells. The expression levels of HDAC1, HDAC2 and HDAC4 were suppressed in both HCCLM3 and SMMC-7721 cell lines. Images were photographed with confocal microscope under ×200 magnification. Scale bar, 100 μm. Data were shown as mean ± SD. n = 3; * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01 and *** P < 0.001 compared with DMSO group.

Growth inhibition assay
Cell viability; 

PubMed: 30443188     

Quisinostat inhibited cell proliferation in HCCLM3, Sk-hep-1, Hep-3B, Huh7 and SMMC-7721 cells as a concentration-dependent manner verified by CCK8 assay. 

In vivo In an HDAC1-responsive A2780 ovarian tumor screening model, JNJ-26481585 dosing at its maximal tolerated dose (10 mg/kg i.p. and 40 mg/kg p.o.) for 3 days leads to an HDAC1-regulated fluorescence , which predicts tumor growth inhibition. Furthermore, JNJ-26481585 also shows more potent inhibitory effects on the growth of C170HM2 colorectal liver metastases than 5-fluorouracil/Leucovorin. [1]

HDAC activity assays :

In all cases, full-length HDAC proteins are expressed using baculovirus-infected Sf9 cells. In addition, HDAC3 is coexpressed as a complex with human NCOR2. For assessing activity of HDAC1-containing cellular complexes, immunoprecipitated HDAC1 complexes are incubated with an [3H]acetyl- labeled fragment of histone H4 peptide [biotin-(6-aminohexanoic)Gly-Ala-(acetyl[3H])Lys-Arg-His-Arg-Lys-Val-NH2] in a total volume of 50μL enzyme assay buffer (25mM HEPES (pH 7.4), 1 M sucrose, 0.1 mg/mL BSA and 0.01% (v/v) Triton X-100). Incubation is performed for 45 minutes at 37 °C (immunoprecipitates) or 30 min at room temperature. Before addition of substrate, HDAC inhibitors are added at increasing concentrations and preincubated for 10 minutes at room temperature. After incubation, the reaction is quenched with 35μL stop buffer (1 M HCl and 0.4 M acetic acid). Released [3H]acetic acid is extracted with 800μL ethyl acetate and quantified by scintillation counting. Equal amounts of HDAC1 are immunoprecipitated as indicated by Western blot analysis. HDAC1 activity results are presented as mean ± SD of three independent experiments on a single lysate.

  • Cell lines: NCL-H2106, Colo699 and LNCAP cells
  • Concentrations: 0-300 nM
  • Incubation Time: 24 hours
  • Method: All cell lines are obtained from American Type Culture Collection and cultured according to instructions. The effect of HDAC inhibitors on cell proliferation is measured using an MTT. Proliferation of non–small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) cell lines is assessed using an Alamar Blue–based assay. For proliferation of hematologic cell lines, cells are incubated for 72 hours and the cytotoxic activity is evaluated by MTS assay. Data are presented as mean IC50 or IC40 ± SD of at least three independent experiments.

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

  • Question 1:

    I was thinking of resuspending the powder in 10% hydroxy-propyl-β-cyclodextrin, 25mg/ml mannitol, in sterile water (final pH 8.7). Is this a good vehicle to use? What is the solubility of this chemical in such a vehicle?

  • Answer:

    This vehicle can be used for in vivo studies. The following papers also used this vehicle: 1. http://www.nature.com/leu/journal/v23/n10/full/leu2009121a.html; 2. http://cancerres.aacrjournals.org/content/69/13/5307.long (The solvent contains 10% hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin, 0.8% HCl (0.1 N), 0.9 % NaOH (0.1 N), 3.4% mannitol and pyrogen-free water). The solubility is 2mg/ml.
