LIMK inhibitor CRT0105950 Small Molecule (Tool Compound)

Invented by Dr Mark Charles at Cancer Research Technology

Info

Catalogue Number 151832
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets LIMK1 and LIMK2
Type Inhibitor
Relevance The LIMK inhibitor CRT0105950 is a novel, selective, potent LIMK inhibitor, which inhibits p-cofilin and inhibits invasion in a Matrigel inverse invasion assay. LIMK1 has been reported to play a key role in tumour cell invasion, and the level of LIMK1 is increased in breast and prostate cancer cell lines in comparison with less invasive cell lines.
The LIM kinases (LIMK1 and LIMK2) phosphorylate and inactivate cofilin which allows them to act as regulators of actin cytoskeletal dynamics and microtubule organisation.
On Target IC50 IC50 LIMK1 0.008uM
IC50 LIMK2 0.048uM
IC50 Cell p-cofilin 1uM
Molecular Formula C20H18F3N3O2S
Molecular Weight (g/mol) 383.89
In vitro applications The compounds exhibit low uM potency in breast cancer cells showing dose dependent inhibition of phosphorylation of the LIMK substrate cofilin. Treatment of MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells with the compounds significantly reduces their ability to invade a matrigel plug in an inverse in vitro invasion assay. Furthermore, the inhibitors effectively reduce fibroblast-led collective invasion in a co-culture organotypic model.
Research Area Cell Signaling & Signal Transduction, Neurobiology
Notes % invasion inhibition at 3uM 52
