  • Cells with OGN over-expression were challenged with EGF (100 ng/mL) and pretreated with SC79 (constitutive Akt activator) for 24 h. Western blotting with the significantly altered markers was performed.

    U251 cells were treated with PAMK-2206-2HCl or SC79 for 24 h. The expression of FoxM1 and MYBL2 were detected by western blotting.

  • cells with OGN over-expression were challenged with EGF (100 ng/ml) and pretreated with SC79 (constitutive Akt activator) for 24 h. Western blotting presented a significant reduction in expression of HIF-1α and VEGF. Data were representative of three independent experiments with one-way ANOVA test.

    SC79 enhances fusion and myotube formation of L6 myoblasts through upregulation of Akt signaling. Immunofluorescence analysis of L6 myoblasts in the presence of 1 μM SC79 or MK2206 at 3, 5 and 7 days during myogenic differentiation. Staining for myosin heavy chain (MHC, green) marks differentiated cells. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue). Fusion index, myofiber diameter and number of nuclei per myofiber were measured at 3, 5 and 7 days after differentiation in the presence of 1 μM SC79 or MK2206. Scale bar, 50 μm. The data are presented as the mean ± SD. ⁎P < 0.05 versus blank controls from the same day. MHC, myosin heavy chain.

  • The molecular structure along with the molecular weight (MW) of SC79 were presented (A). ARPE-19 cells were treated with applied concentration of SC79 (0.1–10 μg/mL, or 2.74–27.41 μM) for 1 h, p-Akt (Ser-473) and Akt1 expression was tested by Western blots and was quantified (B) n = 4). ARPE-19 cells (C and D) primary murine RPE cells ("Primary RPE", (E)) or HLECs (F) pretreated with applied concentration of SC79 for 30 min, were subjected to UV radiation (30 mJ/cm2), cells were further cultured for 24 h, and cell viability was tested by MTT assay (C, E and F); Cell death was detected by trypan blue staining assay (D). "Ctrl" stands for untreated control group (Same for all figures). For each assay, n = 5. Experiments in this figure were repeated three times to insure consistency of results. *p < 0.05 vs. “Ctrl” group (C–F). **p < 0.05 vs. UV only group (C-F).

Biological Activity

Description SC79 is a brain-penetrable Akt phosphorylation activator and an inhibitor of Akt-PH domain translocation.
Akt [1]
In vitro

SC79 suppresses PHAKTM-GFP plasma membrane translocation, and enhances phosphorylation of all three Akt isoforms in HEK293, HeLa, HL60, NB4, and HsSulton (B cells) cells. SC79 reduces neuronal excitotoxicity and prevents stroke-induced neuronal death. [1] SC79 restores proliferation of BRAT1 knockdown cells, and reduces the production of superoxide in mitochondria of MitoSox positive cells. [2]

In vivo In the permanent focal cerebral ischemia mouse model, SC79 (0.04 mg/g, i.p.) enables the cytosolic activation of Akt, and recapitulates the primary cellular function of Akt signaling, resulting in augmented neuronal survival. [1]

Cytosolic phosphorylation of Akt:

Hela cells are serum starved for 1 hr and treated with IGF (100ng/mL) or SC79 (4 μg/mL) for 30 minutes. Cells are lysed in Lysis buffer containing 250 mM Sucrose, 20 mM HEPES, 10 mM KCl, 1.5 mM MgCl2, 1 mM EDTA, 1 mM EGTA supplemented with protease inhibitors. Cells are passed through 25G needle several times and kept on ice for 20 minutes. Total cell lysate is taken at this point. Cell lysates are centrifuged at 100,000g for 30 minutes. Supernatant is collected as the cytosolic fraction. Pellet is washed with lysis buffer and represents the membrane fraction. Total cell lysate, cytosolic and membrane fractions are resolved by SDS-PAGE and analyzed for phospho-Akt (S473), Total Akt, Tubulin (cytosolic marker) and Orai1 (membrane marker) by western blotting.

  • Cell lines: HsSultan and NB4 cells
  • Concentrations: 8 μg/mL
  • Incubation Time: 24 h
  • Method:

    HsSultan or NB4 cells (2.5 × 105) are plated in a 24-well plate in 500 μL of phenol red-free RPMI medium supplemented with 10% FBS. After incubation for 24 hours, each compound (8 µg/mL) is added and cultured for overnight (16–20 h). Fifty microliters of MTT solution (5 mg/mL in PBS) are added to each well. Following 2 hrs incubation, the purple formazan crystals are dissolved by directly adding in 500 μL of isopropanol with 0.1 M HCl to each well. After clearing the cell debris by centrifugation, the absorbance is measured at a wavelength of 570 nm.

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.
