How to use

In Vitro:

WT161 selectively inhibits HDAC6 and dramatically increases levels of acetylated α-tubulin (Ac-α-tubulin) with little effect on global lysine acetylation. WT161 induces significant toxicity in all multiple myeloma cell lines tested, with IC50s between 1.5 and 4.7 µM . WT161 in combination with bortezomib triggers significant accumulation of polyubiquitinated proteins and cell stress, followed by caspase activation and apoptosis. More importantly, this combination treatment is effective in bortezomib-resistant cells and in the presence of bone marrow stromal cells, which have been shown to mediate multiple myeloma cell drug resistance.

In Vivo:

WT161 shows toxicity at 100 mg/kg i.p., but WT161 is well tolerated at 50 mg/kg i.p.. Bortezomib combined with WT161 demonstrates a significant antitumor effect.
