Biological Activity

Description GSK621 is a specific and potent AMPK activator.
AMPK [1]
(Cell-free assay)
In vitro

In AML cell lines and primary AML samples, GSK621 markedly increases phosphorylation at AMPKα T172, a marker of AMPK activation. In a set of 20 cell lines, GSK621 reduces the proliferation of all 20 lines with IC50 ranged from 13-30 μM, and increases apoptosis in 17 (85%) lines. In addition, GSK621 also triggers autophagy, which partially contributes to AML cell death. [1]

Methods Test Index PMID
Growth inhibition assay Cell viability ; pS6K1 / S6K1 / p4EBP1 / 4EBP1 / Tspan8 / Cyclin D1 ; pACC / ACC1 27532105
In vivo In nude mice bearing MOLM-14 xenografts, GSK621 (30 mg/kg, i.p.) reduces leukemia growth and significantly extends survival by enhancing AMPK activity and the induction of apoptosis. [1]

Protocol (from reference)

Kinase Assay:


  • AMPK enzymatic assay:

    HEPG2 cells are treated with increasing doses of A-769662 or GSK621, and ACC S79 phosphorylation is assessed as a surrogate marker for AMPK activation using a commercially available ELISA kit.

Cell Research:


  • Cell lines: MV4-11, OCI-AML3, OCI-AML2, HL-60, Kasumi, HEL, UT7, NB4, TF-1, KG1A, Nomo p28, SKM-1, U937, YHP1, MOLM-14, Mo7e, K562, MOLM-13, EOL-1, SET-2 cell lines
  • Concentrations: ~30 μM
  • Incubation Time: ~4 d
  • Method:

    Twenty AML cell lines are treated with log10 dilutions of GSK621 and relative viability is determined by CellTiter-Glo?assay. IC50 of GSK621 among these 20 cell lines is calculated using the Prism software and are presented as log[C] with [C] in mol/l (M). Results are presented for 5 different cell lines per panel.

Animal Research:


  • Animal Models: NUDE Mice bearing MOLM-14 Xenografts
  • Dosages: 30 mg/kg, twice daily
  • Administration: i.p.

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

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.
