Biological Activity

BIX-01294 is a G9a-like protein and G9a histone lysine methyltransferase inhibitor with IC50 values of 0.7 and 1.7 μM respectively. BIX-01294 inhibits the G9aHMTase dependent levels of histone-3 lysine (9) methylation (H3K9me). BIX-01294 can also inhibit H3K9 Jumonji demethylase KIAA1718 with half-maximal inhibitory concentrations in low micromolar range. In its inhibition of the histone lysine methyltransferases, BIX 01294 does not compete with cofactor S-adenosyl-methionine. The target enzyme is G9a, and it selectively impairs G9a HMTase and the generation of H3K9me2 in vitro. BIX-01294 (4.1 μM) reduces H3K9me2 Levels in bulk histone preparations from wt ES cells, mouse embryonic fibroblasts and HeLa cells. BIX-01294 reduces H3K9me2 at Several G9a Target Genes including Bim1 and Serac1.

Cell Experiment
Cell lines MCF-7 cells
Preparation method MCF-7 cells treated with 10 μM BIX were fixed in 4% glutaraldehyde. After dehydration, ultrathin sections were prepared using a Sorvall MT5000 microtome (DuPont Instruments, MT5000), and collected on 150 mesh copper grids. Sections were stained with 1% uranyl acetate and/or lead citrate, and images obtained with a JEOL 100CX transmission electron microscope (JEOL USA, JEOL-100CX).
Concentrations 10 μM
Incubation time 24 h
Animal Experiment
Animal models C57BL/6 mice
Dosages 2 μl
Administration injected through implanted cannula
Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)
Species Mouse Rat Rabbit Guinea pig Hamster Dog
Weight (kg) 0.02 0.15 1.8 0.4 0.08 10
Body Surface Area (m2) 0.007 0.025 0.15 0.05 0.02 0.5
Km factor 3 6 12 8 5 20
Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A Km

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.
