Background

MK-571 (L-660,711) is a novel potent and selective antagonist of leukotriene D4 receptor with Ki values of 0.22 nM and 2.1 nM in guinea pig and human lung membranes, respectively [1]. MK-571 is also a specific inhibitor of the multidrug resistance protein 1 (MRP1) [2].

Leukotriene D4 (LTD4) is one of the leukotrienes and is released by basophils. LTD4 induces the contraction of smooth muscle and increases vascular permeability. Cysteinyl leukotriene receptor 1 (cysLT1 receptor, LTD4 receptor) is a G protein-coupled receptor activated by LTD4 [3].

MK-571 (L-660,711) is a potent, selective and orally active leukotriene D4 receptor antagonist. MK-571 competitively antagonized contractions of guinea pig trachea and ileum induced by LTD4 (pA2 values, 9.4 and 10.5) and LTE4 (pA2 values, 9.1 and 10.4) , and antagonized contractions of human trachea induced by LTD4 with pA2 value of 8.5 [1].

In anesthetized guinea pigs, MK-571 antagonized bronchoconstriction induced by LTC4, LTD4, and LTE4 [1]. In mice, MK-571 (1, 10, 100 mg/kg) inhibited inflammatory cell infiltration in the bronchoalveolar lavage in a dose-dependent way with maximal inhibition of 90%. MK-571 also inhibited bronchial hyperreactivity and reduced lung microvascular leakage by 22% at 10 mg/kg [3].

Protocol

Cell experiment [1]:

Cell lines

U937 cell line

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is >10 mM. 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.

Reaction Conditions

IL-6 protein determination: Freshly isolated monocytes were stimulated with medium, LPS (1 ng/ml), MK-571 (10 μM), and the combination of both during 24 h.

Applications

Costimulating the cells with 10 μM MK-571 and 1 ng/ml LPS enhanced IL-6 secretion(2.0±0.4 fold increase, p<0.01)than cells only stimulated by LPS. And a 1.6 fold increase in IL-6 mRNA expression was also observed by the combination of LPS and MK-571 compared to the effects of LPS alone.

Animal experiment [2]:

Animal models

Sensitized male Balb/c mice weighing 20±25 g

Dosage form

Effect of MK-571on cell infiltration: Animals were treated with an injection of MK-571 in the caudal vein (1, 10, 100 mg/kg ) for 30 min

Applications

The MK-571 inhibition for eosinophil infiltration in the bronchoalveolar lavage was 46%, 63.9% and 90% at the dose of 1 mg/kg, 10 mg/kg and 100 mg/kg. And MK-571 produced a total inhibition of neutrophil infiltration.

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.
