ONX-0914, previously known as PR-975, is a potent inhibitor of immunoproteasome, a form of proteasome generating peptides presented on major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecule to cytotixic T cells, which selectively induces conformational changes in the S1 binding pocket of the immunoproteasome subunit β5i (low molecular mass polypeptide 7/LMP7) rather than the constitutive proteasome subunit β5 in human and mouse cells. ONX-0914 is able to block the production of proinflammatory cytokines from human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), activate mouse splenocytes, inhibit IL-17-producing T cells under TH17-polarizing cytokines in vitro, and attenuate disease progression of diabetes, arthritis, and colitis in mouse models.

Shipping ConditionEvaluation sample solution: ship with blue ice. All other available sizes: ship with RT, or blue ice upon request.
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

Human peripheral blood mononuclear (PBMC)cells

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 °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.

Reaction Conditions

200 nM, 1 hour


PBMCs were treated with 200 nM ONX-0914 for 1 hour and were exposure to 1 ng/ml LPS for 24 h. Supernatants were analyzed for expression of the inflammatory cytokines. ONX-0914 selectively inhibited LMP7 (> 80%). LMP7 inhibition blocked production of IL-23 by > 90% and of tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and IL-6 by ~ 50%. Higher concentrations of ONX-0914, which induce inhibition of LMP2 and MECL-1, further decreased secretion of TNF-α and IL-6, suggesting that these subunits have a role in cytokine regulation.

Animal models

Collagen antibody–induced arthritis (CAIA) model in BALB/c mice Collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) model in DBA1/J mice

Dosage form

Intravenous injection, 2, 6 and 10 mg per kg body weight


ONX-0914 blocked disease progression in a dose-dependent manner and completely ameliorated visible signs of disease at the highest dose. Inhibition of LMP7 alone was sufficient to block disease progression, as evidenced by the therapeutic response to PR-957 administered at 2 mg per kg body weight. ONX-0914 treatment also induced a rapid therapeutic response in the T and B cell–dependent CIA model. Immunoproteasome inhibition was associated with a decrease in circulating levels of autoantibodies and collagen oligomeric matrix protein (COMP), a marker for cartilage breakdown.

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.
