Biological Activity

ABT-737 is a potent and selective inhibitor of B-cell lymphoma-2 (BCL-2) family proteins. The ABT-737 single-agent LC90 values ranged from 100 nM for COG-LL-319 and RS4; 11 cells to low micromolar concentrations for the other five ALL cell lines. ABT-737 efficiently induces apoptosis and suppresses growth of hepatoma cells in combination with sorafenib. Moreover, we observed that the enhancement of ABT-737-mediated apoptosis by NCTD was associated with activation of mitochondrial apoptosis signaling pathway, which involved cytosolic release of cytochrome c, cleavage of caspase-9 and caspase-3. Finally, knockdown of Mcl-1 substantially potentiated ABT-737-mediated apoptotic cell death, confirming the potency of Mcl-1 repression by NCTD in enhancing ABT-737-induced apoptosis. These results therefore suggest that combination treatment with NCTD can overcome ABT-737 resistance and enhance ABT-737 therapeutic efficacy in treating human HCC.

Cell Experiment
Cell lines CLL cells and platelets
Preparation method Apoptosis analysis Peripheral blood mononuclear cells were purified using Histopaque and cultured in RPMI 1640 medium supplemented with 10% fetal calf serum and 2 mmol/l L-glutamine at2*106 cells/ml. Cells were exposed to different concentrations of ABT-737, ABT-263, or ABT-199 for 4 h before analysis of apoptosis by externalisation of phosphatidylserine (PS) and binding of AnnexinV/fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC). Platelets isolated from healthy volunteers were cultured in Hepes-buffered saline and exposed to different concentrations of ABT-737, ABT-263, or ABT-199 for 4 h before analysis of apoptosis in the CD41-positive population by externalisation of PS and binding of AnnexinV/FITC.

Animal models C57BL/6 mice were injected (i.v.) with 3x106 T1 lymphoma cells
Formulation formulated in 60% phosal 50PG (standardized phosphatidylcholine concentrate with at least 50% PC and propylene glycol
Dosages 100 mg/kg
Administration oral gavage
Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)

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.
