WZ811 is a small molecule antagonist of CXC chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) .
WZ811 is synthesized with two aromatic amine moieties. It is found to effectively inhibit TN14003 binding to CXCR4 with EC50 value of 0.3nM at first. And then WZ811 is found to have ability in counteracting SDF-1 function and blocking CXCR4/SDF-1-mediated signaling. In the cAMP assay, WZ811 reduces the effect on cAMP caused by 150ng/ml SDF-1 significantly. It also blocks the SDF-1 induced Matrigel invasion with EC50 value of 5.2nM. Since CXCR4 is involved in the pathogeneses of a wide range of infectious, inflammatory and other diseases, WZ811 is developed for the treatment of various CXCR4-related diseases. It is reported to have weak anti-HIV activity in cell culture [1, 2].
