Apoptozole is an inhibitor of heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70; 65% inhibition at 200 μM) that acts by blocking its ATPase activity.
target: Hsp70 [1]
In vitro: Apoptozole binds HSP70 but not other types of heat shock proteins and induces caspase-dependent apoptosis. Apoptozole does not affect interactions of HSP70 with ASK1, JNK, BAX, and AIF. [1] Apoptozole aggregates under aqueous conditions. [2]
In vivo: Animal studies indicate that Az treatment retards tumor growth in a xenograft mouse model without affecting mouse viability. [1]

Abstract: The use of chemical tools to validate clinical targets has gained in popularity over recent years and the importance of understanding the activity, selectivity and mechanism of action of these compounds is well recognized. Dysregulation of the HSP70 protein family has been linked to multiple cancer types and drug resistance, highlighting their importance as popular targets for anti-cancer drug development. Apoptozole is a recently identified small molecule, which has been reported to possess strong affinity for the HSP70 isoforms HSP72 and HSC70. We investigated apoptozole as a potential chemical tool for HSP70 inhibition. Unfortunately, using both biochemical and biophysical techniques, we were unable to find any experimental evidence that apoptozole binds to HSP70 in a specific and developable way. Instead, we provide experimental evidence that apoptozole forms aggregates under aqueous conditions that could interact with HSP70 proteins in a non-specific manner.
