Biological Activity

Description KNK437 is a pan-HSP inhibitor, which inhibits the synthesis of inducible HSPs, including HSP105, HSP72, and HSP40.
HSP105 [1] HSP72 [1] HSP40 [1]
In vitro

KNK437 dose-dependently inhibits the acquisition of thermotolerance and the induction of various HSPs including HSP105, HSP70, and HSP40 in COLO 320DM (human colon carcinoma) cells.[1] KNK437 and quercetin inhibits thermotolerance in a dose-dependent manner in PC-3 cells. KNK437 decreases heat-induced accumulation of Hsp70 mRNA and protein in PC-3 and LNCaP cells.[2]

In vivo KNK437 (200 mg/kg, i.p.) shows no antitumor effects and does not increase the thermosensitivity of nontolerant tumors. The same dose of KNK437 enhances the antitumor effects of fractionated heat treatment in a synergistic manner.[3]

Protocol (from reference)

Kinase Assay:[1]
  • Metabolic Labeling and Gel Electrophoresis:

    COLO 320DM cells (200,000) are injected into each well of 12-well plastic plates 2 days before incubation in the presence of KNK437 for 1 h before heat shock. The cells are then heat-shocked at 42°C for 90 min or kept at 37°C for the same length of time and incubated at 37°C for 2 h. For metabolic labeling, cells are washed with PBS without Ca2+ or Mg2+ and incubated for 1 h with 1.22 MBq of [35S]methionine in 250 μL of methionine-free DMEM supplemented with 10% dialyzed fetal bovine serum. After metabolic labeling, cells are washed twice with PBS and lysed in a buffer containing 1% NP40, 0.15 M NaCl, 50 mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0), 5 mM EDTA, and protease inhibitors [0.2 mM 4-(2-aminoethyl)benzenesulfonyl fluoride hydrochloride, 2 mM N-ethylmaleimide, 1 μg/mL pepstatin, and 1 μg/mL leupeptin]. After centrifugation at 12,000×g for 20 min, cell extracts containing equal amounts of trichloroacetic acid-insoluble radioactivity are analyzed by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (the one-dimensional gel electrophoresis is a nonequilibrium pH gradient gel electrophoresis, and the two-dimensional gel electrophoresis is 10% SDS-PAGE).

Cell Research:[1]
  • Cell lines: COLO 320DM cells
  • Concentrations: 100 μM
  • Incubation Time: 1 h
  • Method: Thermotolerance is induced by incubating cells with 300 μM sodium arsenite for 90 min. Cells are preincubated with or without 100 μM KNK437 for 1 h before the sodium arsenite treatment. After treatment of the cells with sodium arsenite, cells are washed once with PBS and incubated at 37℃ for 5 h with or without KNK437. The effects of KNK437 on acquired thermotolerance are tested by heating the cells at 45°C for the indicated time. The surviving fraction is calculated as the plating efficiency of the treated cells divided by the plating efficiency of untreated control cells.
Animal Research:[3]
  • Animal Models: C3H/He mice
  • Dosages: 200 mg/kg
  • 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.
