Biological Activity

Description Erastin is a ferroptosis activator by acting on mitochondrial VDAC, exhibiting selectivity for tumor cells bearing oncogenic RAS. Solutions of Erastin are best fresh-prepared.
Targets
Ferroptosis [1]
In vitro

Erastin is selectively lethal to oncogenic RAS-mutant cell lines, and triggers a unique iron-dependent form of non-apoptotic cell death called ferroptosis. [1] [2] Erastin binds directly to VDAC2 and causes mitochondrial damage via ROS production in an NADH-dependent manner, which induces cell death in some tumor cells harbouring activating mutations in the RAS-RAF-MEK pathway. [3] In addition, erastin, via inducing ROS-mediated CID (Caspase-independent cell death), strongly enhances the effect of cisplatin in WT EGFR cells. [4]

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:[1]
  • Cell lines: BJ-TERT/LT/ST/RASV12 cells
  • Concentrations: 5 or 10 μg/mL
  • Incubation Time: 6-11 hours
  • Method: BJ-TERT/LT/ST/RASV12 cells are seeded in 100 mm dishes and allowed to grow overnight. Cells are treated with erastin (5 or 10 μg/ml) for 6, 8, or 11 hr. A camptothecin-treated (0.4 μg/ml) control is maintained, treated at the time of seeding for 20 hours. After the treatment, cells are harvested with trypsin/EDTA and washed once with fresh medium containing serum and then twice with phosphate-buffered saline. Cells are resuspended in 1× binding buffer. 100 μL is incubated with 5 μL of Annexin V-FITC and propidium iodiode for 15 min in the dark at room temperature. Then 400 μl of the 1× binding buffer s added and the cells analyzed by flow cytometry. Data are acquired and analyzed using Cellquest software. Only viable cells that do not stain with propidium iodiode are analzyed for Annexin V-FITC staining using the FL1 channel.

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.
