|Description||OTSSP167 (OTS167) is a highly potent MELK (maternal embryonic leucine zipper kinase) inhibitor with IC50 of 0.41 nM.|
OTSSP167 inhibits A549, T47D, DU4475, and 22Rv1 cancer cells, in which MELK is highly expressed, with IC50 values of 6.7, 4.3, 2.3, and 6.0 nM, respectively. OTSSP167 inhibited the phosphorylation of PSMA1 (proteasome subunit alpha type 1) and DBNL (drebrin-like), which are novel MELK substrates and are important for stem-cell characteristics and invasiveness. OTSSP167 suppresses mammosphere formation of breast cancer cells through the inhibition of PSMA1 phosphorylation. 
|In vivo||OTSSP167 exhibits significant tumor growth suppression in xenograft studies using breast, lung, prostate, and pancreas cancer cell lines in mice by both intravenous and oral administration. In MDA-MB-231 model, intravenous administration of OTSSP167 at 20 mg/kg once every two days results in TGI of 73% The oral administration at 10 mg/kg once a day reveals TGI of 72%. OTSSP167 for multiple cancer types in dose-dependent and MELK-dependent manners with no or a little body-weight loss. |
in vitro kinase assay:MELK recombinant protein (0.4 μg) is mixed with 5 μg of each substrate in 20 μL of kinase buffer containing 30 mM Tris-HCl (pH), 10 mM DTT, 40 mM NaF, 10 mM MgCl2, 0.1 mM EGTA with 50 μM cold-ATP and 10 Ci of [γ-32P]ATP for 30 min at 30 °C. The reaction is terminated by addition of SDS sample buffer and boiled for 5 min prior to SDS-PAGE. The gel is dried and autoradiographed with intensifying screens at room temperature. OTSSP167 (final concentration of 10 nM) is dissolved in DMSO and added to kinase buffer before the incubation.

* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.

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.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and SDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and SDS / COA (available online).

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.
