CWHM-12 is a potent inhibitor of αV integrins with IC50 values of 0.2, 0.8, 1.5, and 1.8 nM for αvβ8, αvβ3, αvβ6, and αvβ1, respectively. CWHM-12 demonstrates high potency against all of the five possible β subunit binding partners (αvβ1, αvβ3, αvβ5, αvβ6 and αvβ8) in in vitro ligand-binding assays.
In vivo, CWHM-12 significantly reduces liver fibrosis even after fibrotic disease have been established. Digital image quantitation demonstrates significantly reduced p-SMAD3 signaling in the livers of CWHM-12 treated mice compare to controls, demonstrating that the protection from CCl4-induced hepatic fibrosis observed in CWHM-12 treated mice is due at least in part to a reduction in TGF-β activation by αv integrins. Besides, administration of CWHM-12 significantly inhibited progression of pulmonary fibrosis.
|Cell lines||The stably transfected human 293 cells over-expressing human αvβ3 or αvβ5|
|Preparation method||The stably transfected human 293 cells over-expressing human αvβ3 or αvβ5 are pre-incubated in HBSS buffer containing 200 μM MnCl2 for 30 min at 37°C with 3-fold dilutions of compound (e.g., CWHM-12). Each sample is then added to triplicate wells of a 96-well plate which has been coated overnight at 4°C with a predetermined optimal concentration of purified vitronectin, washed, blocked by 1 hr incubation with BSA, and washed again. Cells are allowed to attach for 30 min at 37°C, and non-adherent cells are removed by washing. Remaining attached cells are measured by endogenous alkaline phosphatase activity using para-nitrophenyl phosphate and reading absorbance signal at 405 nM.|
|Incubation time||90 min|
|Animal models||Wild type C57/BL6 mice, Itgav(flox/flox) mice and itgb8(flox/flox) mice|
|Formulation||50% DMSO (in sterile water)|
|Administration||delivered by implantable ALZET osmotic minipumps|
|Body Surface Area (m2)||0.007||0.025||0.15||0.05||0.02||0.5|
|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.
|Solubility||DMSO: 10 mg/mL|
Targeting of αv integrin identifies a core molecular pathway that regulates fibrosis in several organs.
