SB-3CT is a potent and selective inhibitor of gelatinases with Ki values of 13.9 and 600 nM for MMP-2 and MMP-9, respectively.

Gelatinases A (MMP-2) and B (MMP-9) belong to matrix metalloproteinases family and are involved in tumor metastasis and angiogenesis by hydrolyzing extracellular matrix [1].

SB-3CT is a potent and selective gelatinases inhibitor. SB-3CT was a novel mechanism-based inhibitor that directly bound to the catalytic zinc ion of MMP-2 [1]. SB-3CT inhibited purified mouse MMP-9 with Ki value of 120 nM [2].

In mice bearing T-cell lymphoma L-CI.5s cells, SB-3CT reduced the number of liver metastases in a dose dependent way and reduced the number of tumor colonies by >70% at 50 mg/kg/d. SB-3CT (50 mg/kg/d) also significantly reduced colony size and the number of PCNA positive tumor cells in the livers. These results suggested that SB-3CT effectively inhibited tumor cell extravasation and exhibited an antiproliferative effect. SB-3CT completely inhibited MMP-mediated gelatinolytic activity through the inhibition of both MMP-2 and MMP-9. Also, SB-3CT increased survival [2]. In a transient focal cerebral ischemia mice model, SB-3CT inhibited laminin cleavage mediated by MMP-9 and then rescued neurons from apoptosis [3].
