Biological Activity

Description Wnt-C59 (C59) is a PORCN inhibitor for Wnt3A-mediated activation of a multimerized TCF-binding site driving luciferase with IC50 of 74 pM in HEK293 cells.

In vitro

Wnt-C59 (C59) is claimed to inhibit PORCN enzyme activity at nanomolar concentrations. Wnt-C59 (10 nM) blocks the palmitoylation-dependent Wnt–WLS interaction in HeLa cells transfected with either WNT3A-V5 or WNT8A-V5 plasmids. Wnt-C59 (100 nM) prevents incorporation of palmitate into WNT3A in HeLa cells transfected with WNT3A-V5, consistent with inhibition of PORCN activity. Wnt-C59 (100 nM) inhibits the activity of all splice variants of murine PORCN in PORCN-null HT1080 cells transfected with PORCN. Wnt-C59 is a nanomolar inhibitor of mammalian PORCN acyltransferase activity and blocks activation of all evaluated human Wnts. Wnt-C59 does not significantly inhibit the proliferation of any of 46 tested cancer cell lines in vitro at concentrations that completely inhibit PORCN. [1] Wnt-C59 is capable to significantly inhibit proliferation and comparable to the ICG-001 treated NMuMG (NMG) cells. Wnt-C59 inhibits sphere formation by threefold in NMuMG (NMG) cells, which is dependent on Wnt10b-secretion. Wnt-C59 inhibits proliferation of human MDA-MB 231 cells by >50%. [2] Wnt-C59 (a Porcupine inhibitor) blocks radiolabel incorporation of [125I]iodo-pentadecanoate in mouse L-Wnt3a cells transfected with Flag-Porcupine. [3]

Western blot
β-catenin / pPKC; 

PubMed: 26941358     

Western blotting analysis in cortical neurons on day 18. Each WNT inhibitor inhibited Wnt/β-catenin-dependent signaling during the SFEBq differentiation procedure, but C59 also inhibited Wnt/β-catenin independent signaling.

Cyclin D1; 

PubMed: 31156379     

C59 treatment significantly decreased the levels of cyclin D1 mRNA (0.66 ± 0.032, *p < 0.05 compared to control levels). However, exogenous Wnt3a prevented this decrease and recovered cyclin D1 mRNA to the levels in control cells, which were significantly different than those in C59-treated cells (1.16 ± 0.032, **p < 0.01).

Cell proliferation;

Cell proliferation influenced by concentrations of Wnt-C59 treatment. Wnt-C59 has a clear inhibitory effect on the growth of HK1 cells.

Cell viability; 

PubMed: 31156379     

Cytotoxicity was evaluated through assessment of mitochondrial functionality with an MTT assay. Treatment with C59 for 24 h at concentrations over 100 μM reduced SH-SY5Y vitality, causing a mortality rate of up to 40% at the 200 μM concentration (0.6 ± 0.011, ***p < 0.001). Although a slight decrease in SH-SY5Y vitality was observed at 100 μM, this difference was not significant.

In vivo Wnt-C59 concentration remains greater than 10-fold above the in vitro IC50 for at least 16 hours following a single oral dose (5 mg/kg) in mice. Wnt-C59 (10 mg/kg) prevents growth of MMTV-WNT1 tumors in female nude mice orthotopically transplanted with independent MMTV-WNT1 tumors. Wnt-C59 (10 mg/kg) decreases Wnt pathway activity and decreased proliferation in MMTV-WNT1 tumors in female nude mice orthotopically transplanted with independent MMTV-WNT1 tumors as evident by decreased expression of β-catenin target gene expression. [1] Wnt-C59 (10%) topically administered 4 weeks decreases the size of dysplasia of SmoM2-expressing cells in adult K14CREER/Rosa–SmoM2 mice. [4]

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Question 1:

    I want to use Wnt-C59 for i.p. injection, can you advise how to dissolve it?

  • Answer:

    S7037 Wnt-C59 can be dissolved in 2% DMSO+30% PEG 300+5% Tween 80+ddH2O at 5 mg/ml as a clear solution. After stayed for a while, the precipitation will go out. So it is recommended to prepare the solution just before use.
