JLK 6, an isocoumarin, is a selective inhibitor of γ-secretase, with an IC50 value between 10 μM-1 mM [1, 2].

The enzyme γ-secretase catalyzes the cleavage of β-Amyloid precursor protein (βAPP) to produce Amyloid β-peptide (Aβ). Aβ is a part of the plaque present in the brain of patients with Alzheimer’s disease. γ-secretase also targets other substrates like Notch. Notch is a transmembrane protein which is involved in important functions during different stages in development, both embryonic and adulthood [1].

HEK293 cells were used. In these cells, wild-type βAPP was overexpressed (962 fmol/mL in 35-mm wells). JLK6 markedly reduced Aβ secreted from these cells. Interestingly, JLK6 potentiated the recovery of two fragments. Immunological characterization indicated that one fragment was labelled with a specific antibody against the Asp1 residue of Aβ. JLK6 also inhibited the Aβ recovery from cells overexpressing Swedish-mutant βAPP to a similar extent [2].

In the zebrafish embryo, JLK isocoumarin inhibitors did not change the Notch pathway responsible for somitogenesis. Unlike other γ-secretase inhibitors, these agents did not affect E-cadherin processing. JLKs did not inhibit α-secretase, β-site APP cleaving enzymes (BACE) 1 and BACE2, GSK3β kinase and proteasome. JLK inhibitors prevented Aβ production without inducing unwanted cleavages of other proteins [1].
