Biological Activity

TAK-242 (Resatorvid) is a small-molecule-specific inhibitor of Toll-like receptor (TLR) 4 signaling. TAK-242 inhibits the production of lipopolysaccharide-induced inflammatory mediators by binding to the intracellular domain of TLR4. TAK-242 also inhibited mRNA expression of IL-6 and TNF-alpha induced by LPS and interferon-gamma in RAW264.7 cells. TAK-242 suppressed the production of these cytokines from LPS-stimulated human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) at IC50 values from 11 to 33 nM. Intravenous administration of TAK-242 to mice 1 h before LPS challenge dose-dependently inhibited LPS-induced increases in serum levels of TNF-alpha, IL-1beta, IL-6, IL-10, MIP-2, and NO metabolites. TAK-242 protected mice from LPS-induced lethality in a similar dose-dependent manner, and rescued 100% of mice at a dose of 1 mg/kg.

Results As shown in Figure 3, the protein and mRNA expressions of TLR4 and NF-κB decreased in the miR-146a mimic and the Tak-242 groups, while mRNA and protein expressions of TLR4 and NF- κB increased in the miR-146a inhibitor and the TLR4 groups, and the mRNA and protein expressions of TLR4 and NF-κB in the TLR4 group were significantly higher than those in the miR-146a inhibitor group
Cell Experiment
Cell lines L6-GLUT4myc
Preparation method Prior to treatment with LPS or stearate, cells were pre-treated with TAK-242 (1 μM) or vehicle control for 1 h. TAK-242 remained in culture medium for the duration for the experiment.
Concentrations 1 μM
Incubation time 1 h

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.
