In vitro

In vitro, conversion from angiotensin II to angiotensin-(1–7) by mouse ACE2 is blocked by MLN-4760 (10 μM). MLN-4760 inhibits both human and mouse ACE2 activity.[3] In huMNCs, MLN-4760-B (an isomer of MLN-4760) detects 63% ACE2 with 28-fold selectivity over ACE. In huCD34+ cells, MLN-4760-B detects 38% of ACE2 activity with 63-fold selectivity. In mu-heart and muMNCs, MLN-4760-B is 100- and 228-fold selective for ACE2, respectively. In muLin- cells, MLN-4760-B detects 25% ACE2 activity with a pIC50 of 6.3. The racemic mixture and MLN-4760-A shows lower efficacy and poor selectivity for ACE2 in MNCs and mu-heart.[4]

In vivo

MLN-4760 blocks ACE2 activity, thus significantly reverses the elevation of carotid Ang-(1-7) level and the decline of carotid Ang II level induced by NaHS in mice. The anti-atherosclerotic property of NaHS is also significantly abolished by treatment with MLN-4760.[2]

  • Cell lines: mononuclear cells (MNCs), huCD34+ cells, mu-lineage-depleted (muLin-) cells
  • Concentrations: 0.01 nM to 300 μM
  • Incubation Time: 1 h, 4 h
  • Method:

    In the case of cell lysates, 10 μg of total protein is assayed for activity in a buffer with the following composition: 50mM MES (4-morpholineethanesulphonic acid), 300mM NaCl, 10μM ZnCl2 and 0.01% Triton X-100, pH 6.5. Reaction is initiated by the addition of 5×10-5 M substrate. Where applicable, recombinant enzymes are used at a concentration of 0.01 μg per reaction. The fluorescence measurements are performed in the black microtiter plates in a total volume of 100 μl. The plates are read using a fluorescence plate reader SpectraMax M5 at an excitation wavelength 320 nm and emission wavelength 405 nm Fluorescence resulting from the substrate hydrolysis increased with time, and achieved maximum by 1 h with recombinant enzyme however with cell/tissue lysates the maximum fluorescence is observed by 4 h of incubation. Therefore fluorescence recorded at 1 and 4 h of reaction time is taken for calculation of percent enzyme inhibition, when using recombinant enzymes and cell/tissue lysates, respectively. ACE2 activity is defined as the ACE2 inhibitor-sensitive fluorescence and ACE activity is defined as the ACE inhibitor, captopril-sensitive fluorescence, and are expressed as percent inhibition. Unless specified, MLN4760 is used in concentration ranging from 0.01 nM to 300 μM.

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.
