In vitro

The well performing compound 3k shows nanomolar antiproliferative activity toward a series of cancer cell lines with high expression of PKM2 including HCT116, Hela and H1299 with IC50 values ranging from 0.18-1.56 μM. Moreover, compound 3k exhibits more cytotoxicity on cancer cells than normal cells[1].

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:


  • Cell lines: HCT116, Hela, H1299, BEAS-2B
  • Concentrations: 0.078, 0.156, 0.313, 0.625 μM
  • Incubation Time: 48 h
  • Method:

    Cell viability is detected with the MTS assay. Briefly, 5000 cells in per well are plated in 96-well plates. After incubated for 12 h, the cells are treated with different concentration of tested compound or DMSO (as negative control) for 48 h. Then 20 μL MTS is added in per well and incubated at 37°C for 3h. Absorbance of each well is determined by a microplate reader at a 490 nm wavelength. The IC50 values are calculated using Prism Graphpad software of the triplicate experiment.

Working concentration: mg/ml;

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.
