SANT-1 is a novel molecule that has anti-tumour effect through its ability to bind to smoothened protein [1] .

Smoothened is one of the two types of two integral membrane proteins that regulate the activation of Hh pathway, a process that direct cellular differentiation and proliferation[1]. In addition, abnormities function of Smoothened was linked to occurrence of tumor genesis in human[1].

SANT-1 is one of the 4 Smoothened antagonists during high-throughput assay and is the molecules that have the highest antagonist effect to Smoothened protein[1]. In two healthy cell lines (Shh-LIGHT2 nM and SmoA1-LIGHT2 cell lines) , SANT-1 was able to inhibited both cells after 30 hrs of incubation with a IC50 value of 20 and 30 nM, respectively[1]. In addition, SANT-1 has the highest affinity toward Smoothened among 4 molecules, having an apparent KDs of 1.2 nM[1]. In tumor pancreas cancer cell line, SANT-1 inhibited Panc-1 cell lines with an IC50 value of 100 µM after incubation. In addition, a combination application of SANT-1 and SAHA (histone deacetylase inhibitor) enhancement the anti-tumor effectives of treatment as a result of their cooperative suppression of the Hh pathway activity[2].

No in vivo test has been carried out on SANT-1.
