Wnt-C59 is a very potent and highly selective Wnt signaling antagonist with an IC50 ~ 74 pM in the Wnt signaling reporter assay. It prevents palmitylation of Wnt proteins by Porcupine (a membrane-bound O-acyltransferase), thereby blocking Wnt protein secretion and activity. Wnt-C59 displayed good bioavailability as once daily oral administration and blocked progression of mammary tumors in MMTV-WNT1 transgenic mice model while downregulating Wnt/β-catenin target genes. Because Wnt-C59 exhibits much better potency and selectivity than the reported IWP series of Porcupine/Wnt inhibitors, it serves as the better Wnt pathway inhibitor for in vitro and in vivo studies.

How to use

In Vitro:

Wnt-C59 was used at 0.1-0.2 µM to completely block Wnt protein secretion. When used at 0.5 µM, it can be used functionally replace the Dkk protein in many assay conditions.

In Vivo:

Wnt-C59 was used to dose mice orally at 5-10 mg/kg once per day or 5 mg/kg twice per day.
