Description Pinometostat (EPZ5676) is an S-adenosyl methionine (SAM) competitive inhibitor of protein methyltransferase DOT1L with Ki of 80 pM in a cell-free assay, demonstrating >37,000-fold selectivity against all other PMTs tested, inhibits H3K79 methylation in tumor. Phase 1.

(Cell-free assay)
80 pM(Ki)
In vitro

EPZ-5676 reduces H3K79 dimethylation with a cellular IC50 of 2.6 nM in MV4-11 cells. EPZ-5676 treatment results in concentration- and time-dependent reduction of H3K79 methylation without effect on the methylation status of other histone sites, which leads to inhibition of key MLL target genes and selective, apoptotic cell killing in MLL-rearranged leukemia cells. EPZ-5676 inhibits proliferation of MLL-AF4 rearranged cell line MV4-11 with an IC50 of 9 nM.

Murine RAW264.7 cells treated with DOT1L inhibitor or DMSO were stimulated with 10 ng/mL RANKL for the indicated time. The 40-h pre-OCs (40-h PreOC), 60-h pre-OCs (60-h PreOC), and 60-h OCs (60-h OC) were collected for western blot analysis. Phosphorylation of p65 on S536 and NFATc1 expression were detected with specific antibodies; grayscale analysis was conducted using p65 and glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) as the internal controls, respectively.

Immunofluorescence analysis of NFATc1 nuclear translocation. RAW264.7 cells were treated with DMSO or 1 µM EPZ5676 for 40 h. Red color indicates NFATc1 expression, as seen under a fluorescence microscope, and the nuclei are stained blue. Representative results of the two replica experiments are shown (magnification, ×600). 

In vivo EPZ-5676 continuously intravenous infusion for 21 days to xenograft model of MLL-rearranged leukemia, leads to dose-dependent anti-tumor activity. At the highest dose of 70.5 mg/kg/day, complete tumor regressions are achieved with no regrowth for up to 32 days after the cessation of treatment. No significant weight loss or obvious toxicity is observed in rats treated with EPZ-5676 during efficacy study.

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.
