Biological Activity

MLN82379 (Alisertib) is a second-generation, orally bioavailable, highly selective small molecule inhibitor of the serine/threonine protein kinase Aurora A kinase with potential antineoplastic activity. MLN8237 (Alisertib) binds to and inhibits Aurora A kinase, which may result in disruption of the assembly of the mitotic spindle apparatus, disruption of chromosome segregation, and inhibition of cell proliferation.

Method CCK8 assay
Cell Lines U251, U87 and U118 cell lines
Incubation Time 48 h
Results Treatment with two other aurora kinase inhibitors, AZD1152 and MLN8237, demonstrated similar results (Fig. 7d).
Cell Experiment
Cell lines HCT-116, SW480, DLD-1, H460, MDA-MB-231, PC3, SKOV3 cell lines
Preparation method BrdU in vitro cell proliferation assay Thirteen tumor cell lines treated with increasing concentrations of alisertib over 96 hours were subjected to 5-bromo-2-deoxyuridine (BrdU) incorporation as a measurement of cellular proliferation. Proliferation of each cell line was measured using the cell proliferation ELISA, BrdU colorimetric kit according to the manufacturer's recommendations (Roche).
Concentrations 0~1µM
Incubation time 96h
Animal Experiment
Animal models Mice bearing the disseminated, CD20-positive, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma model OCI-LY19
Formulation 10% 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin and 1% sodium bicarbonate
Dosages 20 mg/kg twice daily or 30 mg/kg once daily
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

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 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.
