Kinase experiment:

For SMYD2 inhibition, 10 µL of BAY-598 or DMSO is first incubated with recombinant SMYD2 in methylation buffer reaction for 1 h at 30°C, and then 2 µCi of 3H-AdoMet is added to the mix and incubated overnight at 30°C. The reaction mixture is resolved by SDS-PAGE followed by autoradiography, Coomassie stain, or MS analysis[1].

Cell experiment:

Cells are seeded in 96-well plates at 2000 cells per well (optimum density for growth) in a total volume of 100 μL of medium containing 2% fetal bovine serum. Serially diluted BAY-598 in 100 μL of medium is added to the cells 12 h later. After 72 h of incubation, cell viability is assessed by an MTT assay according to the manufacturer's instructions[1].

BAY-598 is a potent, peptide-competitive chemical probe for SET and MYND domain-containing protein 2 (SMYD2), a lysine methyl transferase inhibitor that dimethylates histone H3K36 and methylates histone H3K4. SMYD2 also methylates Lys-370 of p53, leading to decreased DNA-binding activity. SMYD2 is over-expressed in several cancers with poor prognosis. BAY-598 inhibits in vitro methylation of p53K370 with an IC50 value of 27 nM and in cells with an IC50 value < 1 μM. BAY-598 is more than 100-fold selective over other histone methyltransferases and non-epigenetic targets.

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
