Dynasore is a noncompetitive inhibitor of GTPases with the IC50 value of 15 μM[1] [2].
GTPases (singular GTPase) are hydrolase enzymes that play an important role in GTP binding and hydrolyzing. GTPases involve in many processes, like, transduction signal, protein biosynthesis, translocation proteins through membranes, and transporting vesicles within the cell. It has been reported that dynasore could inhibit the GTPase activity of dynamin1, dynamin2 and Drp1 [3] [4].
Dynasore is a potent GTPases inhibitor and functions on the sites of dynamin1, dynamin2 or Drp1. When tested with HL-1 cells, treated cells with dynasore blocked the endocytic process via inhibiting the activity of dynamin [1].  Using genetically encoded pH-sensitive fluorescent probe synaptopHluorin to study the role of dynasore in the synapses expressing spH, and the results showed that dyansore treatment resulted in the normal stimulus-triggered increase in fluorescence intensity via reducing the GTPase activity of dynamin which in turn blocked the synaptic endocytosis[4]. Dynasore worked as inhibitor of dynamin GTPase activity which blocks dynamin-dependent endocytosis not only in cells, but also including neurons [3].

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is > 16.1 mg/mL. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37 °C for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. Stock solution can be stored below - 20 °C for several months.

Reacting condition

0, 1, 10, 20, 40, 60 and 80 μM; 30 mins


In Hela cells preincubated with 80 μM Dynasore for 30 mins, the uptake, trafficking and intracellular accumulation of transferrin were all significantly blocked. Moreover, Dynasore dose-dependently inhibited transferrin uptake. In addition, the effect of Dynasore on transferrin uptake was proved to be reversible.
