MELK-8a hydrochloride is a novel maternal embryonic leucine zipper kinase (MELK) inhibitor with an IC50 of 2 nM.
Store at -20℃ for one year（Powder）；Store at 2-4℃ for two weeks；Store at -20℃ for six months after dissolution.
DMSO: 8.6 mg/mL (Need ultrasonic and warming)
MELK-8a remains very potent (IC50=140 nM) when the ATP concentration in the biochemical assay is shifted from 20 μM to 2 mM. Its potency is well tracked between full-length MELK versus catalytic domain construct (5 nM versus 2 nM). It only inhibits seven off-target kinases in addition to MELK with >85% inhibition of binding at 1 μM demonstrating great selectivity. The compound is at least 90-fold more selective in targeting MELK in all cases. MELK-8a is fairly soluble (0.22 g/L at pH 6.8) and shows a good permeability in the Caco-2 assay. MELK-8a inhibits the growth of MDA-MB-468 cells and MCF-7 cells with an IC50 of approximately 0.06 and 1.2 μM, respectively.
Subcutaneous administration of MELK-8a at 30 mg/kg in C57BL/6 mice results in good plasma exposure. The compound adsorption into the systemic circulation is rapid (Tmax=0.4 h) and peak plasma concentration reaches 6.6 μM. An ascending dose PK study in female athymic nude mice shows that the rate of compound release is maximal at 120 mg/kg and all clearance mechanisms can be saturated at 240 mg/kg. However, when administered orally at 10 mg/kg in C57BL/6 male mice, it shows very poor PK (3.6% oral bioavailability) consistent with very high in vivo clearance.
