is a potent and soluble IRE1α inhibitor, used for cancer research.
IC50 value:
Target: IRE1α
In vitro: MKC-3946 blocks XBP1 mRNA splicing and exhibits cytotoxicity against AML cells. MKC-3946 inhibits XBP1S expression induced by tunicamycin (TM) in NB4 cells (B) and AML sample from patients[1]. MKC-3946 prevents the splicing of the XBP1 mRNA in response to ER stress caused by mutant proinsulin production[2]. MKC-3946 is an IRE1α endoribonuclease domain inhibitor that blocks XBP1 mRNA splicing and triggers modest growth inhibition in MM cells. MKC-3946 inhibits XBP1s expression induced by Tm in a dose-dependent manner, but does not affect phosphorylation of IRE1α. MKC-3946 blocks XBP1 splicing and enhances cytotoxicity induced by bortezomib or 17-AAG. MKC-3946 (10μM) enhances ER stress-mediated apoptosis induced by bortezomib or 17-AAG, and enhances cytotoxicity of ER stressors, even in the presence of BMSCs or exogenous IL-6[3].
In vivo: MKC-3946 (100 mg/kg, i.p.) inhibits XBP1 splicing in a model of ER stress in vivo, associated with significant growth inhibition of MM cells, alone or with bortezomib. MKC-3946 significantly reduces MM tumor growth in the treatment versus control group. Inhibition of XBP1 splicing by MKC-3946 is associated with decreased MM growth in vivo, alone or in combination with bortezomib[3].
