For research use only.

Apcin (APC inhibitor) is an inhibitor of the E3 ligase activity of the mitotic anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C) that binds to Cdc20 and competitively inhibits the ubiquitylation of D-box-containing substrates.

Biological Activity

Description Apcin (APC inhibitor) is an inhibitor of the E3 ligase activity of the mitotic anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C) that binds to Cdc20 and competitively inhibits the ubiquitylation of D-box-containing substrates.

In vitro

Apcin is a novel cell‑permeable molecule that blocks the interaction between APC/C and Cdc20. Apcin is demonstrated to inhibit OS cell growth and induce significant apoptosis. The invasion and mobile abilities of OS cells are also markedly suppressed by apcin treatment. Furthermore, Bim and p21 are upregulated in OS cells following apcin treatment.[2] The inhibition of CDC20 with its inhibitor Apcin reduces the adhesion rate and proliferation ability to RL95-2 and HEC-1A cells, respectively.[3]

In vivo

CDC20 inhibitor Apcin inhibits embryo implantation in vivo.[3]

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:

[2]

  • Cell lines: Human osteosarcoma cell lines MG63 and U2OS
  • Concentrations: 25 μM, 50 μM, 75 μM
  • Incubation Time: 24 h, 48 h, 72 h
  • Method:

    MG63 and U2OS (2.5×103 cells/well) are seeded in 96‑well plates and cultured overnight. Different concentrations of apcin are added to the medium and cultured for 24, 48 and 72 h, respectively. An MTT assay is then carried out to assess the cell viability according to the manufacturer's protocols. Then, 10 μl of MTT solution (0.5 mg/ml) is added to each well followed by incubation for 4 h. The liquid supernatant is then drained off and 100 μl of DMSO is added to each well to dissolve the crystals. The absorbance of each well at 490 nm is determined using a Multimode Reader of SpectraMax M5.

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

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.
