Triciribine (NSC 154020, VD-0002, vqd-002, API-2, TCN) is a DNA synthesis inhibitor, also inhibits Akt in PC3 cell line and HIV-1 in CEM-SS, H9, H9IIIB, U1 cells with IC50 of 130 nM and 20 nM, respectively; does not inhibit PI3K/PDK1; 5000-fold less active in cells lacking adenosine kinase. Phase 1/2.

|Description||Triciribine (NSC 154020, VD-0002, vqd-002, API-2, TCN) is a DNA synthesis inhibitor, also inhibits Akt in PC3 cell line and HIV-1 in CEM-SS, H9, H9IIIB, U1 cells with IC50 of 130 nM and 20 nM, respectively; does not inhibit PI3K/PDK1; 5000-fold less active in cells lacking adenosine kinase. Phase 1/2.|
Triciribine exhibits maximum growth inhibition around 1-10 μM and inhibits phosphorylation of Akt, as well as downstream p70S6K, to basal levels at 100μM (IC50 = 130 nM). Triciribine shows particular promise for inhibiting growth in Nf1 and Trp53 mutant astrocytoma cells in a grade-dependent manner. The WHO II K1861-10 line is inhibited, incompletely (69% maximum inhibition), with a GI50 value of 1.7 μM for Triciribine, whereas higher-grade tumor lines (KR158, KR130, and SF295) are inhibited to a greater extent (>80% maximum inhibition) at lower GI50 values (0.4–1.1 mM). Importantly, Triciribine is much less effective at inhibiting primary astrocytes (GI5013.6 mM), suggesting that this inhibitor may show specificity for tumor cells.  Triciribine inihibits HIV-1with an IC50 of 20 nM. Greater than 90% inhibition is achieved at 0.1μM and complete inhibition of syncytia formation is achieved at 5μM. Associated cell toxicity in the same cell line for Triciribine is 46 μM, resulting in selectivity indices of 2250. Triciribine markedly inhibits HIV-1-induced p24 core antigen production, reverse transcriptase, and infectious virus production in a dose-dependent manner using HIV-1 acutedly infected CEM-SS, H9, and persistently infected H9III B and U1 cells.  Triciribine inhibits Akt phosphorylation at Thr308 and Ser473 and Akt activity in the human prostate cancer cell line PC-3. Triciribine sensitizes PC-3 cells to TRAIL- and anti-CD95-induced apoptosis, whereas the cells remain resistant to DNA damaging chemotherapeutics.  Triciribine is highly selective for Akt and does not inhibit the activation of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase, phosphoinositide-dependent kinase-1, protein kinase C, serum and glucocorticoid-inducible kinase, protein kinase A, signal transducer and activators of transcription 3, extracellular signal-regulated kinase-1/2, or c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase. 
|In vivo||1 mg/kg/day i.p. treated Triciribine inhibits OVCAR3, OVCAR8 and PANC1 tumor growth, which overexpressing Akt, by 90%, 88% and 80% in nude mice, respectively. However, Triciribine has little effect on the growth of OVCAR5 and COLO357 cells. |
Akt Phosphorylation Changes Assay:Cells are grown to 80%–90% confluency and stimulated for 5–10 minutes with 1–10 ng/mL of epidermal growth factor or platelet derived growth factor (PDGF)–AA with or without 10–20 mM of U0126 or LY-294002. Protein lysates (5–20 μg) are separated by 12%–15% SDS PAGE and analyzed by Western blot for Akt, phosphorylated Akt (phospho-Ser 473), MAPK, and phosphorylated MAPK (p44/42 phospho-Thr202/Tyr204) antibodies (1:1000).
|In vitro||DMSO||64 mg/mL (199.81 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
1% DMSO+30% polyethylene glycol+1% Tween 80
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.
