Biological Activity

Description GSK923295 is a first-in-class, specific allosteric inhibitor of CENP-E kinesin motor ATPase with Ki of 3.2 nM, and less potent to mutant I182 and T183. GSK923295 induces post-mitotic apoptosis. Phase 1.
Features First potent, CENP-E-selective inhibitor that has been tested in Phase I clinical trials for treatment of Refractory Cancers.

GSK923295 is the first potent and selective inhibitor of the mitotic kinesin centromere-associated protein-E (CENP-E). [1][2] GSK923295 is uncompetitive with both ATP and microtubules (MT), inhibiting CENP-E MT-stimulated ATPase activity with a Ki of 3.2 nM, highly selective over other kinesins. GSK923295 inhibits release of inorganic phosphate and stabilizes CENP-E motor domain interaction with microtubules, reduces the rate of ATP-promoted dissociation of CENP-E from MT (koff, MT) by more than 50-fold. GSK923295 causes failure of metaphase chromosome alignment and induces mitotic arrest. GSK923295 is a potent inhibitor of tumor cell growth, with an average GI50 of 253 nM and a median GI50 of 32 nM for 237 tumor cell lines. [1] GSK923295 inhibits tumor cell growth more effectively when mitogen-activated protein kinase (MEK/ERK) signaling is also inhibited. [4]

In vivo GSK923295 produces clear increases in the abundance of mitotic figures and scattered apoptotic bodies in tumors. GSK923295 causes a dose-dependent increase in the ratio of 4n to 2n nuclei. GSK923295 exhibits robust, dose-dependent antitumor activity against Colo205 xenografts, including partial and complete regressions at the 125 mg/kg dose.[1] GSK923295 demonstrates significant antitumor activity against solid tumor models, inducing CRs in Ewing sarcoma, rhabdoid, and rhabdomyosarcoma xenografts, may be a valuable therapeutic target in pediatric cancer.

Kinesin motor domains are expressed in Escherichia coli BL21(DE3) and purified. CENP-E proteins includes residues 2–340 with a carboxyl-terminal 6-his tag. All studies using MT are conducted in PEM25 buffer [25mM PipesK+ (pH 6.8), 2mM MgCl2, 1mM EGTA] supplemented with 10 μM paclitaxel. The IC50 for steady-state inhibition is determined at 500 μM ATP, 5 μM MT, and 1 nM CENP-E in PEM25 buffer.

  • Cell lines: Tumor cell lines
  • Concentrations: ~10 μM
  • Incubation Time: 72 h
  • Method: Cell-growth inhibition assays are performed by MDS in 384-well plates, and DNA content of fixed cells stained with DAPI using an Incell 1000 is analyzed. DNA content is determined 24 h after seeding (T0) and after exposure to varying concentrations of drug for an additional 72 h (T72). All T72 measurements are normalized to T0. Curves are analyzed using the XLfit curve-fitting tool to determine the concentration of GSK923295 yielding 50% growth inhibition relative to T0 and Ymax values (GI50).

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.
