Description MLN8054 is a potent and selective Aurora A kinase inhibitor with an IC50 of 4 nM.
Targets&IC50 Aurora A :ic50 4nM,   Aurora B :ic50 172nM,   CK2 :ic50 20.5μM,   Lck :ic50 3.2μM,   PKA :ic50 19μM,  
In vivo In the HCT-116 tumor-bearing mice, MLN8054, administered orally at 3 mg/kg, 10 mg/kg, and 30 mg/kg once a day, leads to dose-dependent tumor growth inhibition (TGI: 76% and 84% for 10 mg/kg and 30 mg/kg). MLN8054 also shows similar antitumor activity in the PC-3 tumor xenograft in nude mice. [1] In the HCT-116 xenograft-bearing animals, MLN8054 induces DNA and tubulin staining of tumor tissue in nuclear and cell body area, consistent with a senescent phenotype by increasing senescence-associated beta-galactosidase activity.

Kinase Assay Enzyme Assays : Recombinant murine Aurora A and Aurora B protein are expressed in Sf9 cells and purified with GST affinity chromatography. The peptide substrate for Aurora A is conjugated with biotin (Biotin-GLRRASLG). Aurora A kinase (5 nM) is assayed in 50 mM Hepes (pH 7.5)/10 mM MgCl2/5 mM DTT/0.05% Tween 20/2 μM peptide substrate/3.3 μCi/ml [γ-33P]ATP at 2 μM by using Image FlashPlates. Aurora B kinase (2 nM) is assayed with 10 μM biotinylated peptide Biotin-TKQTARKSTGGKAPR in 50 mM Tricine (pH 8.0)/2.5 mM MgCl2/5 mM DTT/10% glycerol/2% BSA/40 μCi/ml [γ-33P]ATP at 250 μM. The conditions for all other in vitro kinase assays are available upon request. MLN8054 is run in a 226 kinase screen at a 1 μM compound concentration with an ATP concentration of 10 μM for all assays.
Cell Research
Human tumor cell lines are grown in 96-well cell culture dishes according to the distributor's recommendations. MLN8054, diluted in DMSO, is added to the cells in 2-fold serial dilutions to achieve final concentrations ranging from 10 mM 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) serves as the untreated control. The cells are treated with MLN8054 for 96 hours 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 according to the manufacturer's recommendation(Only for Reference)
Cell lines: HCT-116, SW480, DLD-1, MCF-7, MDA-MB-231, Calu-6, H460, SKOV-3 and PC-3 cells
Animal Research
Animal Model: HCT-116 and PC-3 cells are injected s.c. into the right flank of nude mice.

Reconstitution Calculation
Molecular Weight Calculator

Molarity Calculator allows you to calculate the

  • mass of a compound required to prepare a solution of known volume and concentration
  • volume of solution required to dissolve a compound of known mass to a desired concentration
  • concentration of a solution resulting from a known mass of compound in a specific volume
See Example

An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
Enter 197.13 into the Molecular Weight (MW) box
Enter 10 into the Concentration box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 10 into the Volume box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 19.713 mg appears in the Mass box


Calculator the dilution required to prepare a stock solution

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution
The dilution calculator is a useful tool which allows you to calculate how to dilute a stock solution of known concentration. Enter C1, C2 & V2 to calculate V1.

See Example

An example of a dilution calculation using the Tocris dilution calculator
What volume of a given 10 mM stock solution is required to make 20ml of a 50 μM solution?
Using the equation C1V1 = C2V2, where C1=10 mM, C2=50 μM, V2=20 ml and V1 is the unknown:
Enter 10 into the Concentration (start) box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 50 into the Concentration (final) box and select the correct unit (micromolar)
Enter 20 into the Volume (final) box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 100 microliter (0.1 ml) appears in the Volume (start) box
