Biological Activity

Description VE-821 is a potent and selective ATP competitive inhibitor of ATR with Ki/IC50 of 13 nM/26 nM.
Targets ATR          
IC50 13 nM/26 nM (Ki/IC50)          

Protocol

Kinase experiment [1]:

Inhibitory activities

VE-821 (2 μM) was screened against the indicated human (h), rat (r), mouse (m) and fission yeast (y) kinases using the Millipore KinaseProfiler service, at ATP concentrations equal to each enzyme’s ATP Km.

Cell experiment [1]:

Cell lines

HFL1 cells; HCT116 cancer cells; H23 cancer 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

10 μM; 24, 48 or 96 h.

Applications

HFL1 cells were pretreated with 10 μM VE-821 or DMSO before addition of 200 μM cisplatin (Cis), 1 μM gemcitabine (Gem), 100 μM etoposide (Etop) or 5 Gy ionizing radiation (IR), VE-821 blocks Chk1 Ser345 phosphorylation under all conditions and inhibits H2AX phosphorylation in treatment with cisplatin and gemcitabine. In the H23 cancer cell line, VE-821 shows marked synergy with cisplatin in growth arrest.

Research Update

1. The novel ATR inhibitor VE-821 increases sensitivity of pancreatic cancer cells to radiation and chemotherapy. Cancer Biol Ther. 2012 Sep;13(11):1072-81. doi: 10.4161/cbt.21093. Epub 2012 Jul 24.
Abstract
The ATR inhibitor VE-821 significantly sensitized a few pancreatic cancer cells to DNA damaging agents, radiotherapy and gemcitabine, where IT inhibited Chk1 phosphorylation and homologous recombination repair, triggered inhibition of G 2/M arrest, reduced radiosurvival and increased DNA damage in radiation- and gemcitabine-treated cancer cells.

Abstract
The ATR inhibitor VE-821 exerted a more pronounced radiosenstizing effect in HL-60 cells, where it reduced phosphorylation of check-point kinase 1 and the repair of the radiation damage, inhibited G2 cell cycle arrest and induced apoptosis.

Background

VE-821 is a potent, highly-selective, and ATP-competitive DNA damage response (DDR) kinase ATR inhibitor with Ki value of 13nM. VE-821 specifically inhibits ATR, revealing low cross-reactivity against the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK), phosphoinositol 3-kinase-γ (PI3K) and the related PIKKs ATM [1].

HL-60 cells treated with VE-821 (10μM) showed reduction of phosphorylatin of Chk1 (Ser 345), inhibition of cell growth, and a radiosensitizing effect after Gamma-ray irradiation [2].

VE-821 has also been demonstrated to down-regulate the phosphorylated Chk1 (Ser 345) but it does not inhibit the phosphorylation of Chk2 (Thr68) and ATM (Ser1981) in pancreatic cancer cell lines, including PSN-1 and MiaPaCa-2 cells that are treated with gemcitabine or radiation. VE-821 combined with gemcitabine (a nucleoside analog) has caused a remarkable increase of cytotoxic effect of gemcitabine against hypoxia [3].
