PI-1840 is a reversible and selective chymotrypsin-like (CT-L) inhibitor with IC50 of 27 nM with little effects on the other two major proteasome proteolytic activities, trypsin-like (T-L) and postglutamyl-peptide-hydrolysis-like (PGPH-L).

|Description||PI-1840 is a reversible and selective chymotrypsin-like (CT-L) inhibitor with IC50 of 27 nM with little effects on the other two major proteasome proteolytic activities, trypsin-like (T-L) and postglutamyl-peptide-hydrolysis-like (PGPH-L).|
PI-1840 potently inhibits proteasomal CT-L activity with IC50 of 0.37 μM in intact human MDA-MB-468 cancer cells, and inhibits proliferation/survival of human MDA-MB-468 cells.  In intact cancer cells, PI-1840 inhibits CT-L activity, induces the accumulation of proteasome substrates p27, Bax, and IκB-α, inhibits survival pathways and viability, and induces apoptosis. 
|In vivo||PI-1840 (150 mg/kg i.p.) inhibits the tumor growth in mice of MDA-MB-231 breast tumors. |
CT-L, T-L, PGPH-L proteolytic activity assays:In the high-throughput screen, fluorogenic peptides are used as substrates to assay (at 10 μM) the 50,000 compounds library from ChemBridge for inhibitory activity against the CT-L proteolytic activity of the purified rabbit 20S proteasome. To test for selectivity for CT-L over T-L and PGPH-L the corresponding fluorogenic peptides are used. Briefly, 1 nM of purified 20S rabbit proteasome is incubated with 20 μM Suc-Leu-Leu-Val-Tyr-AMC for the CT-L activity, Bz-Val-Gly-Arg-AMC for the T-L activity, and benzyloxycarbonyl Z-Leu-Leu-Glu-AMC for the PGPH-L activity for 1 h at 37 °C in 100 μL of assay buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.6) with or without compound. After incubation, production of hydrolyzed 7-amido-4-methyl-coumarin (AMC) groups is measured using a WALLAC Victor2 1420 Multilabel Counter with an excitation filter of 355 nm and an emission filter of 460 nm. The amount of AMC released is within the linear range. Bortezomib is used as a positive control for IC50 determinations. To determine proteasome activity in whole cell, extracts (5 μg) from cultured cell lysate is used instead of 20S rabbit proteasome, and followed the same assay mentioned above.

* 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.
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 MSDS / 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 MSDS / 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.
