Biological Activity

Description PluriSIn #1 is an inhibitor of the stearoyl-coA desaturase 1 (SCD1), which is able to selectively eliminate hPSCs.
SCD1 [1]
In vitro

PluriSIns #1 has a robust, rapid, and selective cytotoxic effect toward hPSCs. Apoptosis is the central cell death mechanism activated by PluriSIn #1. PluriSIn #1 leads to ER stress in hPSCs. PluriSIn #1 (20 μM) induces ~30% decrease in protein synthesis in hPSCs. PluriSIn #1 exposure induces a ~65% decrease in stearoyl-coA desaturase (SCD1) activity in hPSCs. PluriSIn #1 (20 μM) prevents teratoma gormation from undifferentiated hPSCs PluriSIns also inhibits mPSCs and hinders mouse embryonic development. [1]

Protocol (from reference)

Kinase Assay:[1]
  • SCD1 activity assays:

    Cells are plated in 6-well plates at a density of 50k to 100k cells per well. 24 h later, 20 μM PluriSIn #1 or 0.2% DMSO-control are added to the cells. After 12 h of incubation at 37 ℃, 5% CO2, the old medium is removed, cells are washed with PBS, and new medium containing 2.3 μM of 0.75 UCi [1-14C] Stearic Acid is added. The cells are incubated for up to 4 h at 37 ℃, 5% CO2. After the incubation period, the medium is discarded and the cells are washed 3 times with 2 mL of PBS. 2 mL of the mixture n-hexane: isopropanol (3:2 v:v) are added, and the cells are incubated for 30 min at 37 ℃, 5% CO2. 2 mL Folch solution (chloroform: methanol,2:1,v:v) are subsequently added. The liquid is transferred to tubes for phase partition by adding 1 mL water. The lower organic phase is evaporated and used for lipid saponification and TLC separation of the free [1-14C] Stearic Acid (substrate) and [1-14C] Oleic Acid (formed product). Lipids extracted from the cells are applied to TLC plates previously immersed in 10% NO3 Ag and activated at 120℃x60 min. Unlabeled stearic and oleic acid are added to each application point as carriers and as internal standards for identification. The plates are run with a solvent mixture of Chloroform:MeOH:AcH:DDW (90:8:1:0.8). The free fatty acids are detected by U.V. after spraying the TLC with a 2',7',dichlorofluorescein solution. The spots corresponding to stearic and oleic acid are scraped and the radioactivity counted in a sc intillating counter. SCD1 desaturase activity is calculated from the percent conversion of substrate to product and the conversion to pmol/min/106 cells.

Cell Research:[1]
  • Cell lines: Human iPSC line BJ-iPS28
  • Concentrations: ~20 μM
  • Incubation Time: 1 days
  • Method: Relative cell numbers are determined by fixating the cells with 0.5% glutardialdehyde and staining with methylene blue dissolved in 0.1 M boric acid (pH 8.5). Color extraction is performed using 0.1 M hydrochloric acid, and the staining (which is proportional to cell number) is quantitated by measuring absorbance at 650 nM.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
