Cell experiment:

TK6 cells are a lymphoblastoid cell line derived from the spleen >30 years ago. HT29 cells are a colon cancer cell line, with mutant p53. TK6 lymphoblastoid cells and HT29 colon cancer cells are cultured with Cl-amidine in a dose-dependent manner (0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 50 μg/mL) over 24 h. Apoptosis is assessed by annexin V/propidium iodide staining followed by flow cytometry[2].

Animal experiment:

Mice[2]C57BL/6 mice (8-12 wk old) are fed a standard AIN 93M diet. For this DSS mouse model of colitis, mice receive water ad libitum or 2% DSS beginning at day 0 [for oral gavage/treatment experiment or day 7 [for intraperitoneal/prevention experiment. Initial experiments used injections of Cl-amidine (75 mg/kg-1/day-1 ip), beginning concomitantly with the initiation of 2% DSS in the drinking water. This dose is chosen based on results in a RA model that used 100 mg/kg-1/day-1 without overt side effects and without immunosuppressive outcomes. In DSS model, 50 mice in 4 groups are examined, and inflammation scores are recorded[2].

Cl-Amidine is a PAD4 deimination activity inhibitor.

Protein arginine deiminase 4 (PAD4) can catalyze the post-translational modification of arginine residues on histones to form citrulline, which can change gene expression. Thus, dysregulated PAD4 activity has been implicated in cancer and rheumatoid arthritis.

In vitro: Previous study found that Cl-amidine antagonized the PAD4-mediated enhancement of the the p300GBD-GRIP1 interaction dose-dependently, and it was noteworthy that Cl-amidine treatment had only a minimal reduction in the efficiency of the interaction in Cys645S-transfected cells, thereby suggesting that the inhibitory effect of Cl-amidine was not a nonspecific one but was targeted at the active PAD4 enzyme. These results demonstrated that Cl-amidine was significantly more potent than F-amidine, consistent with its improved in vitro potency [1].

In vivo: Animal study showed that Cl-amidine could improve survival in a mouse model of cecal ligation and puncture (CLP)-induced septic shock. Cl-amidine was proven to play protective roles by restoring innate immune cells in BM, decreasing BM and thymus atrophy, increasing blood monocytes and blood/liver bacteria clearance, and attenuating pro-inflammatory cytokine production in a murine lethal sepsis model [2].

Clinical trial: So far, no clinical study has been conducted.
