Epoxomicin (BU-4061T, Aids010837) is a selective proteasome inhibitor with anti-inflammatory activity, inhibits primarily the CH-L activity of the 20S proteasome, while T-L and PGPH catalytic activities are also inhibited at 100- and 1000-fold reduced rate. Epoxomicin promotes apoptosis.

Epoxomicin did not inhibit the EV71-induced PMLIII and IV degradation. Cell lysates were prepared from 293T cells infected or mock-infected with EV71 at a multiplicity of infection (MOI) of 5 for 24 or 48 h in the presence or absence of epoxomicin (1 µM). At 24 h post-infection (p.i.) (left panels) or 48 h p.i. (right panels), 60 μg of protein extracted from each treatment were separated on SDS-PAGE and analyzed by performing a Western blot analysis using antibodies specific for PMLIII and IV (top panels), VP1 (middle panels), and GAPDH, which served as an internal loading control (bottom panels). PMLIII and IV were quantified by performing densitometry and are presented relative to the mock infection, which was set as 1.0. VP1 was quantified and is presented relative to that in the EV71-infected 293T cells at 24 h p.i. (left panels) or 48 h p.i. (right panels). The density value of VP1 without epoxomicin is set as 1.0. The experiment was performed three times, and representative results are shown.

Immature monocyte-derived dendritic cells (moDCs) were incubated 30 min prior and during the 3 h antigen (gp100/AZN-D1) pulse with 0.1% DMSO (vehicle), chloroquine (25 µM), MG132 (10 µM), epoxomicin (0.25 µM), and cathepsin S inhibitor (5 µM). Groups are significantly different compared to AZN-D1.

|Features||Epoxomicin is a natural product isolated from an Actinomycetes species.|
Epoxomicin covalently binds to the LMP7, X, MECL1, and Z catalytic subunits of the proteasome. Epoxomicin (100 nM) results in a 30-fold increase in the levels of p53 protein, a known target of the proteasome, in HUVECs. Epoxomicin (10 μM) results in the accumulation of ubiquitinated proteins in HeLa cells. Epoxomicin (10 μM) inhibits IκBα degradation by 10-fold in HeLa cells. Epoxomicin (10 μM) produces a significant dose-dependent reduction in TNF-α-stimulated NF-κB DNA-binding activity in HeLa cells.  Epoxomicin inhibits proliferating of EL4 lymphoma cells with biotinylated chimerae with IC50 of 4 nM.  Epoxomicin (1 μM) leads to a reduction of LCMV GP33 presentation and an enhancement of GP276 presentation.  Epoxomicin inhibits growth of Babesia bigemina with IC50 of 4 nM. Epoxomicin (0.5 mg/kg and 0.05 mg/kg) results in peak parasitemia levels of 34.8% and 42.3% in B. microti.  Epoxomicin (100 nM) decreases the total parasitemia by 78%, 86% and 77% in Plasmodium falciparum. Epoxomicin (10 μM) inhibits gametogenesis and exflagellation as well as development into oocysts of anopheles mosquitoes. 
|In vivo||Epoxomicin (0.58 mg/kg per day) reduces the CS response by 44% relative to the control group of mice treated with vehicle alone. Epoxomicin (2.9 mg/kg) potently inhibits the irritant-associated inflammatory response by 95% when ear edema measurements are made 24 hours postchallenge in mice. |

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.
