Protocol

Cell experiment [1]:

Cell lines

HT1080 cells

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is >10 mM. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37 °C for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. Stock solution can be stored below - 20 °C for several months.

Reacting condition

5 or 10 mM; 10 hrs

Applications

3-Methyladenine (3-MA) (5 ~ 10 mM) strongly inhibited HT1080 cell migration. In addition, 10 mM 3-MA showed a stronger effect on the suppression of HT1080 cell migration than both 100 nM WMN and 25 μM LY294002.

Background

3-Methyladenine is an inhibitor of class III phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) [1].

3-Methyladenine is widely used as an autophagy inhibitor through inhibiting class III PI3K without significantly affecting protein synthesis or ATP levels. 3-Methyladenine also inhibits class I PI3K. It is found that 3-Methyladenine has different effects on class I and class III PI3K. It blocks class I PI3K persistently while inhibits class III PI3K transiently. As an inhibitor of autophagy, 3-Methyladenine is usually used to study the role of autophagy. In addition, 3-Methyladenine is also found to have anti-cancer efficacy. It induces cell death of tumor under nutrient-starved conditions. In HT1080 cells, 3-Methyladenine significantly inhibits cell migration through reducing membrane ruffle and lamellipodia formation in normal culture condition. It also inhibits the invasion of HT1080 cells [1, 2].
