Biological Activity

Nutlin-3 is a small molecule inhibitor of the MDM2/p53 interaction, which leads to the non-genotoxic p53 stabilization, activation of cell cycle arrest and apoptosis pathways. Nutlin-3 inhibits the MDM2-p53 interaction with IC50 of 0.09 μM and synergistically activates p53 to suppress tumor growth. Nutlin-3 induces apoptosis in cancer cells. Nutlin-3 treatment induces the expression of MDM2 and p21, and displays potent antiproliferative activity with IC50 of ~1.5 μM in cells with wild-type p53 such as HCT116, RKO and SJSA-1. Nutlin-3 is currently in phase I clinical trial for the treatment of retinoblastoma.

Cell Experiment
Cell lines wild-type p53 (HCT116, RKO, and SJSA-1) and mutant p53 (MDA-MB-435 and SW480) cell lines
Preparation method Effect of the enantiomers of Nutlin-3 on the growth and viability of cancer cells with wild-type p53 (HCT116, RKO, and SJSA-1) and mutant p53 (MDA-MB-435 and SW480). Cells were grown, treated, and analyzedAntiproliferative and cytotoxic activity of Nutlin-1. Exponentially growing cancer cells with wild-type p53 (HCT116, RKO, and SJSA-1) or mutant p53 (MDA-MB-435 and SW480) were incubated with a range of concentrations for 5 days and the cell mass and viability were measured by the MTT assay.
Concentrations 0~30µM
Incubation time 5 days
Animal Experiment
Animal models Nude mice bearing subcutaneous human cancer xenografts
Formulation 2% Klucel, 0.5% Tween 80
Dosages 200 mg/kg twice daily for 3 weeks
Administration oral gavage
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.
