Eggmanone is a potent and selective PDE4D3 inhibitor with IC50 value of 72 nM that antagonizes the Hedgehog signaling pathway [1].

Hedgehog (Hh) signaling plays an important role in vertebrate development, and its dysregulation is a driver of numerous malignancies. Phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4) is a target for Hh inhibition. Eggmanone exerts its Hh-inhibitory effects through selective antagonism of PDE4, leading to protein kinase A activation and subsequent Hh blockade [1].

Eggmanone is a potent and selective PDE4 inhibitor that antagonizes the Hedgehog signaling pathway. In Sufu-/- mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs), Eggmanone significantly reduced transcription levels of Gli1 and Ptc1. Eggmanone functioned upstream of Gli processing and nuclear translocation to exert its Hh-inhibitory effects. Eggmanone exhibited potent antagonism of PDE4D3 with IC50 value of 0.072 μM, approximately 40- to 50-fold selective over PDE3A, PDE10A2, and PDE11A4 (IC50s = 3, 3.05, and 4.08 μM, respectively). In Shh-Light2 cells transfected with PDE4D3, Eggmanone restored the increased Hh signaling [1].

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.
