  • GSK1838705A suppresses glioma tumor growth and induces apoptosis in vivo. (A) Following inoculation of U87MG cells, formulated vehicle control or GSK1838705A (4 and 8 mg/kg) was injected into the corresponding group of nude mice (n=6/group) once daily. The tumors were measured every other day for 11 days and the tumor volumes were calculated. Starting on day 7, the differences between the treatment groups (4 and 8 mg/kg) and the vehicle control group were significant (P<0.05). (B) Body weights of the mice during the course of treatment were measured as an indication of significant cytotoxic effects. The data are expressed as the mean ± standard deviation. No significant differences are observed between any two of the groups during the course of treatment. (C) At the end of treatment, the tumors were harvested. GSK1838705A (8 mg/kg) induced the apoptosis of tumor cells in vivo, determined using a TUNEL assay (green) and nuclear staining with Hoechst (blue). Representative images are shown (magnification, ×40). TUNEL, terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase dUTP nick end labeling.

  • Protective effect of IGF1 on Sorafenib or VK1-mediated actin cytoskeleton redistribution in HCC cells. PLC/PRF/5 and HLF cells were stained with DyLight 554 Phalloidin after treatment with 1 μM Sorafenib, 12 μM VK1 or 1 μM GSK1838705A (GSK) for 24 h alone or in combination with 40 ng/ml IGF1. Scale bar: 100 μm.

In vitro

GSK1838705A potently and ATP-competitively inhibits IGF-1R and IR with appKi values of 0.7 nM and 1.1 nM, respectively.In cells, GSK1838705A potently inhibits ligand-induced phosphorylation of IGF-1R and IR with IC50 of 85 nM and 79 nM, respectively. GSK1838705A shows the significant anti-proliferative effect in a panel of cell lines derived from solid and hematologic tumors such as L-82, SUP-M2, SK-ES and MCF-7 cells with EC50 of 24 nM, 28 nM, 141 nM and 203 nM, respectively. GSK1838705A shows an accumulation of MCF-7 and NCl-H929 cells predominantly in G1 (2N) phase of the cell cycle. GSK1838705A also inhibits ALK with Ki of 0.35 nM and supresses the proliferation of nucleophosmin (NPM)-ALK fusion cells with EC50 of 24-88 nM. GSK1838705A potently inhibits NPM-ALK phosphorylation in Karpas-299 and SR-786 cells, while has modest effect on STAT3 phosphorylation. [1]

In vivo In NIH-3T3/LISN tumor-bearing mice, oral treatment of GSK1838705A (60 mg/kg) cause tumor growth inhibition by 77%, without significant weight loss. In COLO 205 tumor-bearing mice, inhibition of tumor growth by GSK1838705A (30 mg/kg) is 80%. Besides, the antitumor efficacy of GSK1838705A is also observed in mice bearing HT29 xenograft or BxPC3 xenograft. In mice, GSK1838705A (60 mg/kg) leads to a transient 2-fold increase in blood glucose levels by inhibiting IR signaling. GSK1838705A (60 mg/kg) inhibits the growth of established Karpas-299 xenografts with 93% tumor growth inhibition, with no effect on weights of the rats. [1]


Kinase Assay:[1]
- Collapse

Kinase Assays:

Baculovirus-expressed glutathione S-transferase-tagged proteins encoding the intracellular domain of IGF-1R (amino acids 957-1367) and IR (amino acids 979-1382) are used for determinations of IC50s by a homogeneous time-resolved fluorescence assay. A filter binding assay is used for appKi determinations using activated IGF-1R and IR kinases. Expanded kinase-selectivity profiling of GSK1838705A is carried out by screening the compound in the KinaseProfiler panel.

  • Cell lines: L-82, SUP-M2, SK-ES and MCF-7
  • Concentrations: 0 to 10 μM
  • Incubation Time: 72 hours
  • Method: Cells are seeded in 96-well dishes, incubated overnight at 37 °C, and treated with DMSO or GSK1838705A for 72 hours. For the NIH-3T3/LISN proliferation assays, cells are seeded on collagen-coated 96-well tissue culture plates and allowed to adhere for 24 hours. The medium is replaced with serum-free medium and the cells are treated with GSK1838705A for 2 hour. Cells are incubated for 72 hours after addition of IGF-I (30 ng/mL). Cell proliferation is quantified using the CellTiter-Glo Luminescent Cell Viability Assay. IC50s are determined from cytotoxicity curves using a four-parameter curve fit software package (XLfit4
