AG-14361 is a selective inhibitor of PARP-1 with Ki50 value

PARP1 is a member of PRAP family and plays an important role in many cellular processes, such as DNA repair, programmed cell death. It has been revealed that PARP1 is abnormally expressed in a variety of cancers and many PARP inhibitors have been developed as the anti-tumor drugs [1] [2] [3, 4].

AG-14361 is a potent PARP-1 inhibitor. When exposed HR and BRCA2-defective cells and parental cells to AG-14361, HR-defective cells were hypersensitive to the AG-14361 even at non-cytotoxic concentrations and lacking BRCA2 made the cells more sensitive to AG-14361 [5]. In human K562 cells, AG14361 treatment for 16 hours resulted in significant (~2-fold) potentiation of camptothecin-induced growth inhibition (GI50, 16 hours, camptothecin + AG14361 2.4 ± 0.1 nmol/L), cytotoxicity (LC50, camptothecin + AG14361 2.77 ± 0.55 nmol/L) and DNA single-strand breaks via inhibiting PARP-1 [1]. When tested with MMR-proficient (HCT-Ch3, A2780, and CP70-ch3) and MMR-deficient (HCT116, CP70, and CP70-ch2) cells, MMR-proficient cells were more sensitivity to temozolomide compared with MMR-deficient cells after exposed to AG-14361 which inhibited PARP1 activity [2].

In mouse model xenografted with BRCA2-deficient and BRCA-2 proficient tumor cells, BRCA2 deficiency group had more response even completely regressed tumor compared with BRCA-2 proficient group when treated with AG-14361 [5].

General tipsFor obtaining a higher solubility , please warm the tube at 37°C and shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while.Stock solution can be stored below -20°C for several months.


Cell experiment [1]:

Cell lines

A549, LoVo, and SW620 cells

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is > 16 mg/mL. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37 ℃ for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. Stock solution can be stored below -20℃ for several months.

Reacting condition

0.4 µM, 5 d


AG14361 at concentration of 0.4 μM inhibited the activity of PARP-1 by more than 85%, but it had no effect on cancer cell gene expression or growth. AG14361 increased the antiproliferative effects of topotecan and temozolomide, inhibited LoVo cells recovering from γ-radiation damage.

Animal experiment [2]:

Animal models

6-8 weeks old female nude mice

Dosage form

30 mg/kg, intraperitoneal administration


Mice were treated with AG14361 a day before implantation of ES cells and continuing for 9 days. The formation of BRCA1-/- ES derived tumors reduced by 90% comparing to control group, but the formation of BRCA1+/+ ES tumors reduced only 22%.

Other notes

Please test the solubility of all compounds indoor, and the actual solubility may slightly differ with the theoretical value. This is caused by an experimental system error and it is normal.
