Biological Activity

ABT-263, a novel, orally bioavailable, BH3 mimetic, binds with high affinity (Ki ≤ 1nM) and inhibits multiple antiapoptotic Bcl-2 family proteins. ABT-263 displays activity (EC50 ≤ 1µM) against human lymphoid and small cell lung cancer cell lines. Mechanism based preclinical toxicities include reductions in circulating lymphocytes, apoptosis of circulating platelets, and decreased spermatogenesis, mediated by inhibition of Bcl-2, Bcl-XL and Bcl-w with IC50 values of ≤ 1 nM, ≤0.5 nM and ≤ 1 nM, respectively.

Results we found a modest, but significant, correlation between BIM expression and sensitivity to ABT-263.ABT-263 across both data sets (SI Appendix, Fig. S1 B and C). However, the ratio of BIM to MCL-1 predicted sensitivity to ABT-263 more effectively than the expression of either biomarker alone. SCLC lines have increased BIM expression compared with other solid tumor types along with enhanced sensitivity to ABT-263 compared with other solid tumor types across a large panel of cancer cell lines.
Cell Experiment
Cell lines H1048 cells
Preparation method Flourescence Activated Cell Sorting (FACS) for death assays and cell cycle analysis Cells were plated in triplicate in 6-well plates or 6-cm dishes to reach ~30-40% confluency the next day. On the next day, cells were treated with the indicated drugs or no drug control. Apoptosis and cell cycle experiments were performed essentially as previously described and analyzed on a BD LSR III (Becton Dickenson, Franklin Lanes, NJ). The cell cycle experiments were gated to include only viable cells in order for the cell cycle distribution to be determined from this population. For apoptosis assays, the number of cells in quadrants II and IV (Annexin positive) were counted as apoptotic, where cells with subG0/G1 DNA3 were quantified and counted as apoptotic following staining with PI. The Annexin stain was conjugated to FITC and the analysis was done on a Guava easyCyte flow cytometer (EMD Millipore (Temecula, CA)). In the engineered H1048 cells, apoptosis determined by ABT-263 treatment and combination ABT-263/AZD8055 treatment were performed within the same experiment.
Concentrations 500 nM AZD8055, 1 μM ABT-2631

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
