AZD5363 is a novel, potent phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt pathway inhibitor with IC50 value of ~200nM. [1]

AZD5363 is proved to inhibit castrate resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) progression. Clusterin (CLU) and autophagy will be induced which may work as cytoprotective responses which can affect the downstream PI3K/Akt signaling. [2] AZD5363 inhibits the growth of a lot of human tumor cells in a dose dependent manner. The mode of action could be monotherapy as well as in combination with HER2 inhibitors in breast cancer models. [3] It is suggested to induce cell apoptosis by measuring the expression of PARP cleavage, the activity of Caspase 3, et al. [1]

Most importantly, AZD5363 can target the PI3K/Akt-pathway in vivo significantly, thus reducing the serum PSA-levels and tumor volume, finally, it could postpone the progression to CRPC.[1]

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

GSK3 in BT474c (Her2þ PIK3CAmutant breast), LNCaP (PTEN-null prostate) and MDA-MB-468 (PTEN-null breast) cancer 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

pGSK3β (IC50: 0.76 μM in BT474c, 0.06 μM in LNCaP, 0.38 μM in MDA-MB-468) pPRAS40 (IC50: 0.31 μM in BT474c, 0.22 μM in LNCaP, 0.39 μM in MDA-MB-468) pFOXO3a translocation (IC50: 0.69 μM in BT474c)


AZD5363 inhibited phosphorylation of AKT substrates with IC50 values of 0.06 to 0.76 μM in the 3 cell lines. AZD5363 also effectively inhibited phosphorylation of S6 and 4E-BP1 in BT474c cells and LNCaP cells.

Animal experiment : [1]

Animal models

Nude mice bearing BT474c xenografts

Dosage form

The treatment groups received 300 or 100 mg/kg acute dose of AZD5363 solubilized in a DMSO/Kleptose buffer, by oral gavage.


Oral dosing of AZD5363 to nude mice caused dose and time-dependent reduction of PRAS40, GSK3, and S6 phosphorylation. Following a 300 mg/kg dose of AZD 5363, phosphorylation of all 3 biomarkers was significantly inhibited for at least 24 hours. 100 mg/kg dose of AZD5363 significantly inhibited phosphorylation of the 3 biomarkers was for at least 8 hours.

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.
