Concanamycin A is a specific inhibitor of vacuolar-type ATPase (V-ATPase) with IC50 value of 10 nM [1].

Vacuolar-type ATPase (V-ATPase) is expressed by clear cells to acidify the lumen of the epididymis, which is essential for male fertility; what's more, it induced proton extrusion into the extracellular medium which contributes to maintaining the intracellular pH under an acidic microenvironment. V-ATPase has also been reported to involve in the process of acidificating microenvironment around/in solid tumors and inducing tumor invasion/multi-drug resistance in several malignant tumors. [2].

Concanamycin A (CMA) is a specific V-ATPase inhibitor and is different from the reported V-ATPase inhibitor SS33410. In oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) OSCC cell lines (MISK81-5, SAS and HSC-4), low-concentration of CMA treatment induced the apoptosis of tumor cells [3]. Pretreated colorectal cancer cell lines with concanamycin A could significantly enhanced the Tumour necrosis factor (TNF) related apoptosis inducing ligand (TRAIL)-induced apoptosis by blocking endosomal acidification by V-ATPase [4]. When tested with prostate cancer cell line C4-2B, inhibition of V-ATPase by concanamycin A reduced 80% invasion in vitro [5].

Concanamycin A also had been reported as a potent inhibitor of CTL cytotoxicity via perforin-mediated cytotoxic pathway [6].
