Cell experiment:

MLN8054 is added to human tumor cells in 2-fold serial dilutions to achieve final concentrations ranging from 10 to 0.04 mM. MLN8054 at each dilution is added in triplicate with each replicate on a separate plate. Cells treated with DMSO (n=6 wells per plate; 0.2% final concentration) served as the untreated control. The cells are treated with MLN8054 for 96 h at 37°C in a humidified cell culture chamber. Cell viability in each cell line is measured by using the Cell Proliferation ELISA, BrdU colorimetric kit[1].

Animal experiment:

Mice: Nude mice bearing HCT-116 tumors are treated orally once per day for 21 consecutive days with either vehicle control or MLN8054 at doses of 3, 10, or 30 mg/kg. Tumor volumes are measured by using a vernier caliper and calculated[1].

MLN8054 is a potent of Aurora A kinase (AAK) inhibitor consisting of a benzazepine core scaffold with a fused amino pyrimidine and an aryl carboxylic acid which represents an unprecedented kinase inhibitor framework. The inhibition of MLN8054 towards AAK is ATP-competitive, reversible and selective with an IC50 value of 4nM, which is more than 40-fold and 100-fold selective comparing to Aurora B kinase (IC50 = 175 nM) and a range of other kinases respectively. MLN8054 exerts antitumor activity against human tumor xenografts through AAK inhibition, which results in deactivation of Pt288, spindle defects, accumulation of G2/M, and apoptosis-induced cell death in tumor cells.
