  • Wildtype bone marrow-derived macrophages (BMDMs) were incubated with and without the MRN complex inhibitor mirin (administered dose of 100 μM) for 2 hours, then were treated with PM (100 μg/mL) for an additional 24 hours. (A) The relative levels of Cxcl1, Cxcl2 and Ifn-γ mRNA transcripts were determined using quantitative PCR. (B) The protein levels of Cxcl1, Cxcl2 and Ifn-γ in the culture supernatants were measured using ELISA. Data are presented as means ± SEMs across at least 3 independent experiments. *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01.

    Aging, 2018, 10(4):549-560. Mirin purchased from Selleck.

    HEK293 T cells were transfected with 3 μg Cas9/sgHPRT plasmid and 20 pmol ssODN. Five hours later, cells were treated with various concentrations of mirin. Twenty-four hours post-transfection, real-time PCR analysis was performed to measure the dose-dependent suppressive effects on HR and NHEJ pathways.

Biological Activity

Description Mirin is a potent Mre11–Rad50–Nbs1 (MRN) complex inhibitor, and inhibits Mre11-associated exonuclease activity. Mirin inhibits MRN-dependent activation of ATM.
MRN [1]
In vitro

Mirin inhibits DSB-induced ATM activation, the ATM-dependent phosphorylation of the downstream targets Nbs1 and Chk2 and the MRN-dependent autophosphorylation of ATM at Ser1981 in response to DSBs. Mirin also inhibits the G2 checkpoint in TOSA4 cells, and homology-dependent DNA repair in HEK293 cells. [1] In cells with integrated HPV16 (SiHa), Mirin sensitizes HPV episomes to PA25 resulting in a ∼5-fold reduction of the PA25 IC50. [2] Pretreatment with mirin also decreases cell viability and inhibits proliferating cell nuclear antigen expression in cisplatin-treated human embryonic kidney 293 cells. [3]

Cytotoxicity of mirin in HEK293 cells. HEK293 cells were treated with the indicated concentrations of mirin, then fixed and stained 10 d later (see Methods). Stained plates were counted for colonies. Percentage survival is expressed as the average number of colonies on treated plates divided by the average number of colonies on control plates (0 μM mirin). Each bar represents an average of three independent experiments with s.d. shown.

Nuclease assay:

Reactions with oligonucleotide nonhairpin substrates contains 25 mM MOPS (pH 7.0), 60 mM KCl, 0.2% Tween 20, 2 mM DTT, 1 mM or 5 MnCl2 (or 5 mM MgCl2, or 5 mM CaCl2), 0.1 pmol of DNA substrate, and 0.3 pmol of Mre11 (or an equivalent amount of Mre11 complexed with Rad50) in a volume of 10 μl, and are incubated at 37°C for 30 min. SDS, EDTA, and proteinase K are then added to final concentrations of 0.2%, 5 mM, and 0.1 mg/ml, respectively, and incubated for another 15 min. 4 μl of each reaction is mixed with 4 μl of formamide loading buffer, and then loaded onto a sequencing gel containing 10% acrylamide and 7 M urea. After the run, each gel is analyzed using a phosphorimaging system. Reactions containing hairpin substrates are identical to those with nonhairpin substrates except that 3 pmol of Mre11 is added to reactions as indicated, and the reactions are incubated at room temperature overnight. Nonhomologous end-joining reactions contains 25 mM MOPS (pH 7.0), 60 mM KCl, 0.2% Tween 20, 2 mM DTT, 4 mM MgCl2, 2 mM MnCl2, 0.5 mM ATP, 4 ng of plasmid DNA, 10% polyethylene glycol, 0.01 pmol of human DNA ligase I, and 0.06 pmol of Mre11 or 0.1 units of E. coli exonuclease III (GIBCO-BRL), in a volume of 10 μl. After incubation at 37°C for 25 min, Tween 20 is added to a final concentration of 0.5%, and a 2.5 μl aliquot is amplified by PCR using primers DAR5 and DAR147. PCR products are cloned using the TA cloning kit and sequenced using an automated ABI Capillary Genetic Analyzer.

  • Cell lines: HEK 293 cells
  • Concentrations: 100 μM
  • Incubation Time: 24 h
  • Method:

    Human embryonic kidney (HEK) 293 cells are maintained in RPMI-1640 supplemented with 5% heat-inactivated fetal bovine serum, penicillin (100 U/mL), and streptomycin (100 mg/mL) in humidified air with 5% CO2 at 37 °C. Cells are given fresh medium at 48 h intervals. The cells are seeded in 96-well plates in regular growth medium. Cells are pretreated with mirin (100 μM for 1 h before the cisplatin (20 μM) treatment followed by incubation for 8 and 24 h. The MTT assay is performed using the EZ-Cytox cell viability assay kit according to the manufacturer's protocol and MTT reduction is measured at a 450 nm wavelength using a micro-plate reader.

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.
