DASA-58 (ML203) is a potent and selective Pyruvate kinase M2 (PKM2) activator with EC50 ~38 nM. It can stabilize pyruvate kinase subunit interactions, promote PKM2 tetramer formation and prevent inhibition by phosphotyrosine signaling. It can alter metabolism in cultured cells, and inhibit xenograft tumor growth in vivo. DASA-58 inhibits LPS-induced Hif-1α and IL-1β, as well as the expression of a range of other Hif-1α-dependent genes. In PC3 cells, DASA-58 impairs stromal-induced EMT program by restoring PK activity and abrogating the nuclear translocation of PKM2, as well as its association with HIF-1α. It also dramatically reduces (~6-fold) CAFs-induced lung metastases formation in PC3 cells.
How to Use:
In vitro: DASA-58 was used at 1-10 µM final concentration in various assays.
In vivo: DASA-58 (40 μM) treated cells are injected into male SCID-bg/bg mice bearing PC3 tumors by IV.
