IC50: 50 nM for wile type Smo
ALLO-1 is a SMO antagonist.
Hedgehog (Hh) proteins are important development regulators that bind the cell-surface protein, which allows the activation of a GPCR-like receptor, Smoothened (SMO). In vertebrates, the SMO activation finally results in the activation of the zinc-finger transcription factors of the Gli family. In addition, the overactivation of SMO may lead to certain cancers.
In vitro: Previous study found that ALLO-1 and its close analog ALLO-2 could inhibit Smo agonist Hh-Ag 1.5-induced luciferase expression in TM3-Gli-Luc cells. The potency of ALLO-1 did not change when either low dose or high dose of Hh-Ag 1.5 was used, in contrast to other known Smo antagonists that are strong SAG or Hh-Ag 1.5 competitors. Moreover, it was found that in contrast to GDC-0449, both ALLO-1 and ALLO-2 inhibited wild-type and the D477G mutant with only around2-fold shift in IC50, indicating that the D477G mutation did not significantly interfere with the binding of ALLO-1 and ALLO-2 to Smo. In addition, ALLO-1 as well as ALLO-2 were able to inhibit both wild-type and D473H mutant human SMO with similar potencies .
In vivo: Up to now, there is no animal in vivo data reported.
Clinical trial: So far, no clinical study has been conducted.
