Thienopyrazole derivatives have recently emerged as effective antitumoral agents with kinase inhibitory activity. In this study, a novel thienopyrazole derivative with potent and selective in vitro cytotoxicity was identified in a high-throughput chemical library screening to identify novel anti-cancer drugs. After 48 hours of exposure, compound Tpz-1 demonstrated potent and consistent cytotoxicity against a panel of human hematologic cells at nanomolar to low micromolar concentrations; an effect which was greatly diminished against the HS-27 non-cancerous foreskin fibroblast cell line. Mechanistic analyses subsequently conducted against the CEM T-cell leukemia cell line revealed that Tpz-1 induces cell death via apoptosis and interferes with cell cycle progression in a dose-dependent manner. These findings merit the further development of Tpz-1 as a novel therapeutic agent in the treatment of human hematologic cancers.
In this webinar you will learn:
to investigate the mechanism, Tpz-1, through a series of apoptosis assays and a transcriptome analysis
Tpz-1 activity against leukemia and lymphoma cell lines and normal cell types.
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
