Alisertib (MLN8237) is a selective Aurora A inhibitor with IC50 of 1.2 nM; has >200-fold higher selectivity for Aurora A than Aurora B.
IC50 Value: 1.2 nM (Aurora A)
Target: Aurora A
in vitro: MLN8237 (0.5 μM) treatment inhibits the phosphorylation of Aurora A in MM1.S and OPM1 cells, without affecting the Aurora B mediated histone H3 phosphorylation. MLN8237 significantly inhibits cell proliferation in multiple myeloma (MM) cell lines with IC50 values of 0.003-1.71 μM. MLN8237 displays more potent anti-proliferation activity against primary MM cells and MM cell lines in the presence of BM stroma cells, as well as IL-6 and IGF-1 than against MM cells alone. MLN8237 (0.5 μM) induces 2- to 6-fold increase in G2/M phase in primary MM cells and cell lines, as well as significant apoptosis and senescence, involving the up-regulation of p53, p21 and p27, as well as PARP, caspase 3, and caspase 9 cleavage. In addition, MLN8237 shows strong synergistic anti-MM effect with dexamethasone, as well as additive effect with doxorubicin and bortezomib. MLN8237 shows >200-fold higher selectivity for Aurora A than the structurally related Aurora B with an IC50 of 396.5 nM, and does not have any significant activity against 205 other kinases.
in vivo: MLN8237 significantly reduces the tumor burden with tumor growth inhibition (TGI) of 42% and 80% at 15 mg/kg and 30 mg/kg, respectively, and prolongs the survival of mice compared with the control.
