Loss of viability (Z score) resulting from HSP90 inhibition (HSP90i; ganetespib, 5 nM) in FANCA null GM6914 cells transduced with retroviruses encoding FANCA wild-type (squares; WT) or empty vector control (circles; null) in the presence (black symbols) of MMC (31.6 nM) or DMSO control (gray symbols). Data from three independent experiments are presented as mean ± SEM.

|Description||Ganetespib (STA-9090) is an HSP90 inhibitor with IC50 of 4 nM in OSA 8 cells, induces apoptosis of OSA cells while normal osteoblasts are not affected; active metabolite of STA-1474. Phase 3.|
The 50% inhibitory concentrations (IC50) for Ganetespib against malignant mast cell lines are 10-50 times lower than that for 17-AAG, indicating that triazolone class of HSP90 inhibitors likely exhibits greater potency than geldanamycin based inhibitors.  Ganetespib inhibits MG63 cell lines with IC50 of 43 nM.  Ganetespib binds to the ATP-binding domain at the N-terminus of Hsp90 and serves as a potent Hsp90 inhibitor by causing degradation of multiple oncogenic Hsp90 client proteins including HER2/neu, mutated EGFR, Akt, c-Kit, IGF-1R, PDGFRα, Jak1, Jak2, STAT3, STAT5, HIF-1α, CDC2 and c-Met as well as Wilms' tumor 1.  Ganetespib, at low nanomolar concentrations, potently arrests cell proliferation and induces apoptosis in a wide variety of human cancer cell lines, including many receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor- and tanespimycin-resistant cell lines. Ganetespib exhibits potent cytotoxicity in a range of solid and hematologic tumor cell lines, including those that express mutated kinases that confer resistance to small-molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitors.  Ganetespib treatment rapidly caused the degradation of known Hsp90 client proteins, exhibits superior potency to the ansamycin inhibitor 17-AAG, and shows sustained activity even with short exposure times. In anohter study, Ganetespib induces apoptosis of malignant canine mast cell lines. Ganetespib is active at significantly lower concentrations for C2 and BR canine malignant mast cells with IC50 of 19 and 4 nM, respectively, while 17-AAG inhibits C2 and BR canine malignant mast cells with IC50 of 958 and 44 nM, respectively.  Both the expression of WT and mutant Kit are downregulated by 100 nM Ganetespib after 24 hours in all lines treated including C2 and BMCMCs cells. However, no effects on PI3K or HSP90 expression are observed following treatment with Ganetespib.
|In vivo||Administration of Ganetespib leads to significant tumor shrinkage in several tumor xenograft models in mice and appears to be less toxic. Furthermore Ganetespib demonstrated better tumor penetration compared with tanespimycin. Ganetespib inhibits in vivo tumor growth in both malignant mast cell and OSA xenograft models. Ganetespib significantly inhibits tumor growth when dosed with two repeating cycles of 25 mg/kg/day for 3 days, with a %T/C value of 18. Ganetespib is well-tolerated, with the vehicle and Ganetespib groups having average bodyweight changes relative to the start of the study of +0.3% and -8.1% on day 17, respectively.|

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 (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does this inhibitor inhibit both isoforms of HSP90?
We don't have the information now and it is not very clear in the literature either. From following two references, it indicates that Ganetespib might be specific to the alpha form “Ganetespib binds to the ATP binding site of Hsp90 alpha with a Kd of 110 nM” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3477583/
