Biological Activity

Ataluren (PTC124) is a novel small molecular CFTR-G542X nonsense allele inhibitor. In safety pharmacology studies in rats and dogs, oral administration of PTC124 (Ataluren) induces no adverse neurological, pulmonary, or cardiovascular effects at doses through 1500 mg/kg. In toxicology studies in rats and dogs at oral doses through 1500 mg/kg for 28 days, PTC124 (Ataluren) has shown good tolerability. Both PTC124 doses were similarly active, improving total chloride transport with a combined mean change of -5.4 mV (p<0.001), and on-treatment responses (at least -5 mV improvement) and hyperpolarisations (values more electrically negative than -5 mV) in 61% (p<0.001) and 56% (p = 0.002) of patients. CFTR function was greater with time and was accompanied by trends toward improvements in pulmonary function and CF-related coughing. The high readthrough efficiency of PTC124 in combination with excellent biocompatibility makes it a promising therapeutic agent for PTCs in USH1C.

Cell Lines HeLa FLuc-opal cell
Concentrations 6, 9, and 12 μM
Incubation Time 72 h
Results After exposition of HeLa cells to 6 μM, 9 μM, and 12 μM PTC124 we observed the presence of green cells indicating that PTC124 induced the production of a full length functional H2B-GFP protein, despite the presence of a premature stop codon in its coding sequence, as evidenced by the clearly dose-dependent increase in the number of green cells.

Cell Experiment
Cell lines Grip-Tite 293 cells transfected with the pFLuc190UGA construct
Preparation method Luciferase Reporter Assays. All cell-based assays were performed in 1,536-well plates with an assay volume of 4.5 μL per well. Comparative cell-based experiments were performed with cells from the same batch of transfected cells to control for transfection efficiency. Cells were incubated with compound or antibiotic for 16–72 h. In experiments with Grip-Tite cells, cells were washed with PBS before the addition of detection reagent containing the FLuc or RLuc substrate. Luminescence from luciferase activity was detected by using ViewLux (PerkinElmer). Experimental plates contained the transcriptional activator MS-275 as a positive control and DMSO-treated cells or mock-transfected cells as a negative control. Percentage activity was defined as the percentage signal above DMSO-treated cells.

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.
