|Description||Telaprevir (VX-950) is an HCV NS3-4A serine protease inhibitor with IC50 of 0.35 μM.|
|Features||Telaprevir is a covalent, reversible inhibitor of the NS3-4A protease (unlike BILN 2061which is a noncovalent inhibitor), with a slow-binding and slow-dissociation mechanism.|
Telaprevir inhibits the hepatitis C virus NS3-4A serine protease, leading to the block of viral polyprotein processing and subsequently decrease of viral RNA replication, total HCV RNA levels and protein levels in the Con1 (genotype 1b) subgenomic HCV replicon cells in a time- and dose-dependent manner. Telaprevir displays a significant time-dependent increase in inhibitory effect on the replication of HCV RNA with IC50 values of 0.574 μM, 0.488 μM, 0.210 μM and 0.139 μM for 24, 48, 72 and 120 hours incubation, respectively. Telaprevir displays an average IC50 of 0.354 μM and an average IC90 of 0.830 μM, respectively, from three independent experiments using the 48 hours incubation. Telaprevir has no significant cytotoxicity to HCV replicon cells, parental Huh-7 and HepG2 cells after 48 hours incubation. Telaprevir (17.5 μM) completely eradicates HCV RNA from replicon cells after 13 days incubation without rebound after Telaprevir is withdrawn. Telaprevir displays an additive to moderate synergistic effect on reduction of HCV RNA replication and suppression of resistance mutations without significant increase in cytotoxicity when in combination with IFN-α, compared to treatment with each agent alone. 
|In vivo||Oral administration of Telaprevir reduces HCV protease-dependent cleavage and subsequent secretion of SEAP from the liver into the blood in the mice model to 18.7% and 18.4% at dosage of 10 and 25 mg/kg, respectively.  Administration of Telaprevir at 200 mg/kg for 1 week results in a 1.9 log reduction of HCV RNA in genotype 1b HCV-infected human hepatocyte chimeric mice, and when treatment in combination with MK-0608 (50 mg/kg) for 4 weeks, viruses are eliminated from mice. |
Determination of anti-HCV activity:Stable Huh-7 cells containing the self-replicating, subgenomic HCV replicon, which is identical in sequence to the I377neo/NS3-3'/wt replicon are used for anti-HCV assays. Replicon cells are incubated at 37 °C for the indicated period of time with Telaprevir serially diluted in DMEM plus 2% FBS and 0.5% dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). Total cellular RNA is extracted using an RNeasy-96 kit, and the copy number of HCV RNA is determined using a quantitative RTPCR (QRT-PCR) assay for the assessment of 50% inhibitory concentration (IC50

For best results, use promptly after mixing.
* 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.
