Biological Activity

MGCD0103 (Mocetinostat) is a novel HDAC inhibitor, highly specific for classes I and IV HDACs. It is well-tolerated and exhibits favorable pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profiles, demonstrating target inhibition and clinical responses. MGCD0103 (Mocetinostat) has been recently shown to exhibit various effects on non-histone targets on cancer cells. The latest preclinical studies have demonstrated that MGCD0103 can induce both cell death and autophagy.

Cell Experiment
Cell lines HCT116, HCT15, HT29, DU145, MDA-mb231, A549 cells line
Preparation method Cell Viability Assay
Cells in 96-well plates were incubated with compounds at various concentrations for 72 h at 37°C in 5% CO2. 3-(4,5-Dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT; Sigma) was added at a final concentration of 0.5 mg/mL and incubated with the cells for 4 h before an equal volume of solubilization buffer [50% N,N-dimethylformamide, 20% SDS (pH 4.7)] was added. After overnight incubation, solubilized dye was quantified by reading at 570 nm using a reference at 630 nm. Absorbance values were converted to cell numbers according to a standard growth curve of the relevant cell line. The concentration which reduced cell numbers to 50% relative to DMSO-treated cells was determined as MTT IC50.
Concentrations 0~100 μ M
Incubation time 72 h
Animal Experiment
Animal models Female CD-1 nude mice
Formulation PBS acidified with 0.1 N HCl or PEG400/0.2 N HCl saline, 40:60
Dosages daily for at least 2 weeks
Administration p.o.
Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)

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.
