Biological Activity

Tubacin (Tubulin Acetylation Inducer) is a highly potent and selective, reversible cell-permeable inhibitor of HDAC6 with IC50 of 0.004µM. The IC50 for the other HDACs are 1000-fold higher, making tubacin both more selective and more potent than Tubastatin A, which also inhibits HDAC8. Concentration in cell culture experiments typically ranges from 2-50µM.

Results These drug regimens showed a time dependent reduction of PlGF (Fig. 9C) and ET-1 (Fig. 9D) in plasma, compared to Niltubacin. The 30 day drug treatment effectively reduced plasma levels of PlGF by ~60% (p <0.001, Fig. 9C) and plasma levels of ET-1 by ~60% (p<0.001, Fig. 9D).

Cell Lines HMEC-1 cells
Concentrations 5 µM
Incubation Time 30 min
Results Taken together, these data showed PlGF induced chromatin condensation to repress DNM3os transcription, while Tubacin prevented the repressive effect following PlGF signaling.

Method qRT-PCR and reporter luciferase activity
Cell Lines HMEC-1 cells
Concentrations 5 µM
Incubation Time 30 min
Results We concluded that HDAC6 required functional ATF3 binding sites in the DNM3os promoter and any antagonism of PlGF effects by Tubacin was not due to a general effect on transcription of the endogenous DNM3os gene or the wt DNM3os reporter construct.
Cell Experiment
Cell lines ALL cells and normal T lymphocytes
Preparation method Growth inhibition assay The inhibitory effect of tubacin on ALL cells and normal T lymphocytes was assessed by colorimetric assay, 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-e-yl)- 2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT; Sigma). Only active mitochondria dehydrogenase enzymes can perform cleavage of a tetrazolium ring, and therefore the amount of purple formazan generated by cells with a drug was compared with the amount of formazan produced from non-treated cells. Absorbance readings at a wavelength of 550 nm were taken on a spectrophotometer (Titertek Multiskan MCC Type 341). Cells from 72 h cultures were incubated with 10 μL of 5 mg/mL MTT for 2 h, followed by 100 μL isopropanol that contained 0.1 N HCl. Normal T lymphocytes were incubated with MTT for 30–37 min. All experiments were performed in triplicate.

Dosages 50 mg/kg/day
Administration intraperitoneally

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.
