Biological Activity

IWP-2 is an inhibitor of Wnt production. IWP-2 inactivates Porcupine, a membrane-bound O-acyltransferase responsible for palmitoylating Wnt proteins, which is essential for their signaling ability and secretion. IWP-2 selectively inhibits palmitoylation of Wnt, and blocks Wnt-dependent phosphorylation of Lrp6 receptor and Dvl2, and β-catenin accumulation. IWP-2 is useful in both suppressing embryonic stem cell self-renewal and decreasing cancer cell proliferation, migration and invasion.

Method western blot
Cell Lines NCM460s cells
Concentrations 1, 10, 100 µM
Incubation Time 3 h
Results Notably, IWP-2 also counteracted TNF-α-induced activation of the NF-κB pathway in NCM460s cells, including increased phosphorylation of IKKα/β and IκBα, decreased protein levels of IκBα and nuclear translocation of p65

Cell Lines C57BL/6 mice
Concentrations 20 mg/kg
Incubation Time 4.5 h
Results This view is supported by reduced percentages of IFN-γ+ liver CD3+NK1.1+ cells in mice treated with IWP-2, a small molecule inhibitor of the acyltransferase Porcupine, which plays a central role in Wnt secretion
Cell Experiment
Cell lines MKN28 cell line
Preparation method Cell proliferation assay CellTiter 96 Aqueous Non-Radioactive Cell Proliferation Assay kit (Promega Corporation, Madison, WI, USA) was used. Transwell migration and invasion assay Haptotaxis chambers (8-μm pore size, Corning Costar, Cambridge, MA, USA) without or with 5 mg/ml matrigel (Sigma Aldrich) were used for migration and invasion assays, respectively. The experiments were repeated three times independently.
Concentrations 0,5,10,20,50µM
Incubation time 5 days
Animal Experiment
Animal models six month-old zebrafish model
Formulation 0.1% DMSO
Dosages 10 μM
Administration in aquarium water supplemented with 10 μM IWR-1 or in 0.1% DMSO as a control
Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)
Species Mouse Rat Rabbit Guinea pig Hamster Dog

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 Compound A used for a mouse (20 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 20 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 Compound A of 10 mg/kg.
