A-196

Catalog No.S7983

For research use only.

A-196 is a potent and selective inhibitor of SUV420H1 and SUV420H2 with IC50 values of 0.025 and 0.144 μM, respectively; more than 100-fold selective over other histone methyltransferases and non-epigenetic targets.

Biological Activity

Description A-196 is a potent and selective inhibitor of SUV420H1 and SUV420H2 with IC50 values of 0.025 and 0.144 μM, respectively; more than 100-fold selective over other histone methyltransferases and non-epigenetic targets.

In vitro

In cells, A-196 induces a global decrease in H4K20me2 and H4K20me3 and a concomitant increase in H4K20me1, but has no effect on any of the other histone modifications. A-196 inhibits 53BP1 foci formation upon ionizing radiation and reduces NHEJ-mediated DNA-break repair but does not affect homology-directed repair. A-196 potently inhibits SUV420H1 and SUV420H2 at both 1 and 10 μM of A-196, but has no activity at either concentration against any of the other PKMTs in the panel, including the other H4K20-modifying enzyme, PR-SET7, and those that utilize H3K4, H3K9, H3K27, and H3K79 as substrates[1].

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:

[1]

  • Cell lines: U2OS cells 
  • Concentrations: 3 μM
  • Incubation Time: 48 h
  • Method:

    U2OS cells are seeded on 6-well plates with 3 μM A-196 or DMSO as a control, and incubated for 48 h. The cells are washed once in 1 X PBS and then lysis buffer (20 mM Tris-HCl pH 7.5, 0.5% Triton X-100, 150 mM NaCl, 1 mM EDTA, 10 mM MgCl2, PMSF, protease inhibitors, benzonase) is added to half the cells to create whole cell extract (WCE). The remaining cells are subjected to sequential cellular fractionation. First the cell pellet is resuspended in hypotonic buffer A (10 mM HEPES pH 7.5, 10 mM KCl, 1.5 mM MgCl2, 0.3 M sucrose, 1 mM DTT and protease inhibitors) and then 0.1% triton X-100 is added. The cells are incubated for 15 min on ice and pelleted by centrifugation at 1,500g. The supernatant is clarified by centrifugation at max speed and saved as the cytoplasmic fraction. The pellet is resuspended in buffer B (3 mM EDTA, 3 mM EGTA, 1 mM DTT and protease inhibitors) and incubated on ice for 40 min and then centrifuged at 1,500g for 5 min. The supernatant is clarified and saved as the nucleoplasmic fraction. The pellet is resuspended in lysis buffer and incubated for 5 min at room temperature before being resuspended in 4× loading dye. The final lysate contains the solubilized chromatin fraction.

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.
