|Description||Opaganib (ABC294640) is an orally bioavailable and selective sphingosine kinase-2 (SphK2) inhibitor with IC50 of approximately 60 μM. Phase 1/2.|
ABC294640 markedly alters the ratio of ceramide/S1P consistent with inhibition of SK activity in MDA-MB-231 cells. ABC294640 inhibits tumor cell proliferation with IC50 values ranging from approximately 6 to 48 μM, and impairs tumor cell migration concomitant with loss of microfilaments.  ABC294640 induces nonapoptotic cell death, morphological changes in lysosomes, formation of autophagosomes, and increases in acidic vesicles in A-498, PC-3, and MDA-MB-231 cells.  In both MCF-7 and ER-transfected HEK293 cells, ABC294640 decreases E2-stimulated ERE-luciferase activity. 
|In vivo||In mice bearing mammary adenocarcinoma xenografts, ABC294640 (100 mg/kg, p.o.) significantly reduce tumor growth, associated with depletion of S1P levels.  In severe combined immunodeficient mice bearing A-498 xenografts, ABC294640 delays tumor growth and elevates autophagy markers.  ABC294640 protects against liver transplantation-induced inflammation and cross-talk between innate and adaptive immunities, major events precipitating and exacerbating graft injury, and improves liver function and survival. |
Sphingosine Kinase Assays:The IC50 values for ABC294640 and DMS are determined by a newly developed HPLC-based SK activity assay. In brief, the test compounds are incubated with recombinant SK1 or SK2 and NBD-Sph in the isozyme-selective assay buffers detailed below with 1 mg/ml fatty acid-free bovine serum albumin, 100 μM ATP, and 400 μM MgCl2. The product, i.e., NBD-S1P, is separated from NBD-Sph by HPLC as follows: Waters 2795 HPLC system with a Waters 2495 fluorescence detector, C8 Chromolith RP-8e column (100 × 4.6 mm), 1 ml/min mobile phase (acetonitrile/20 mM sodium phosphate buffer, pH2.5, at 45:55). Fluorescence is monitored with excitation at 465 nm and emission at 531 nm. The ratio of NBD-S1P/(NBD-Sph + NBD-S1P) is used as a measure of SK activity. SK-isozyme selective assay buffers each contained 20 mM Tris, pH7.4, 5 mM EDTA, 5 mM EGTA, 3 mM β-mercaptoethanol, 5% glycerol, 1× protease inhibitors and 1× phosphatase inhibitors. For the SK1 assay buffer, 0.25% (final) Triton X-100 is added; and for the SK2 buffer, 1 M (final) KCl is added. Assays are run for 2 h at room temperature, and then a 1.5 volume of methanol is added to terminate the kinase reaction. After 10 min, the samples are centrifuged at 20,000g to pellet the precipitated protein, and the supernatants are analyzed by HPLC. In experiments to determine the Ki for inhibition of SK2 by ABC294640, the ADP Quest assay system is used to measure kinase activity in the presence of varying concentrations of sphingosine and ABC294640. To determine the effects of ABC294640 on cellular SK activity, near-confluent MDA-MB-231 cells are serum-starved overnight, and then treated with varying concentrations of ABC294640. The cells are then incubated with [3H]sphingosine at a final concentration of 1 μM. The cells take up the exogenous sphingosine, which is converted to S1P via SK activity, and [3H]S1P is separated from [3H]sphingosine by extraction and quantified by scintillation counting.

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.
