Biological Activity

Description SR9243 is a potent and selective LXR inverse agonist.
LXR [1]
In vitro

In HEK293 cells expressing LXRs, SR9243 inhibits LXR activation by enhancing LXR-corepressor recruitment. In a variety of cancer cell types, SR9243 reduces cancer cell viability, induces apoptotic cell death, and sensitizes cancer cells to chemotherapeutic treatments. [1]

In vivo In Ob/Ob mice fed a high-fat diet, SR9243 (60 mg/kg, i.p.) inhibits LXR-dependent lipogenic enzyme gene expression and tumor growth. [1]

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:[1]
  • Cell lines: DU-145, SW620, HOP-62, PC3, HT-29, and NCI-H23 cancer cells
  • Concentrations: 100 nM
  • Incubation Time: 96 h
  • Method: Cells are cultured in 96 well plates and treated with designated amounts of SR9243 for 96 hr in media containing 1% FBS and antibiotics. Cell-viability is assessed using the Cell-titre 96 kit according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. Cell culture media is supplemented with oleate, stearate and palmitate dissolved in methanol to a concentration of 25 mM. 25 mM stocks are then diluted 10 fold in PBS containing 0.9% BSA. Lipid stocks (100X) are stored at −20° until needed.
Animal Research:[1]
  • Animal Models: Mice bearing SW620, DU-145, or LLC tumors
  • Dosages: 60 mg/kg, once daily
  • Administration: i.p.

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.
