Biological Activity

MLN8054 is an orally bioavailable, highly selective small molecule inhibitor of Aurora with IC50s of 0.004uM and 0.172uM. for Aurora A and Aurora B.Auora kinase inhibitor MLN8054 binds to and inhibits Aurora kinase A, resulting in disruption of the assembly of the mitotic spindle apparatus, disruption of chromosome segregration, and inhibition of cell proliferation.

Customer Product Validations & Biological Datas
Source Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys (2011). Figure 1. MLN8054
Method Western blots
Cell Lines DU145 cells
Concentrations 1 μM
Incubation Time 1 h
Results When MLN8054 was administered in combination with radiation, total Aurora-A remained elevated, but phospho-Aurora-A levels were reduced nearly to baseline levels, indicating abrogation of Aurora-A activity
Cell Experiment
Cell lines HCT116, PC-3, SW480, DLD-1, MCF-7, MDA-MB-231, Calu-6, H460 and SKOV-3 cell lines
Preparation method Cell Viability Analysis. Human tumor cell lines obtained from the American Type Culture Collection were grown in 96-well cell culture dishes according to the distributor's recommendations. MLN8054, diluted in DMSO, was added to the cells in 2-fold serial dilutions to achieve final concentrations ranging from 10 to 0.04 mM. MLN8054 at each dilution was added in triplicate with each replicate on a separate plate. Cells treated with DMSO (n = 6 wells per plate; 0.2% final concentration) served as the untreated control. The cells were treated with MLN8054 for 96 h at 37°C in a humidified cell culture chamber. Cell viability in each cell line was measured by using the Cell Proliferation ELISA, BrdU colorimetric kit according to the manufacturer's recommendations (Roche).
Concentrations 0.04~10 mM
Incubation time 96 hr
Animal Experiment
Animal models Female (HCT-116) and male (PC3) athymic nude NCR (nu/nu) mice
Formulation 10% hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (Sigma) with 5% sodium bicarbonate
Dosages 10 or 30 mg/kg BID or 30mg/kg QD for 21 consecutive days
Administration orally
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.
