GKT137831, also known as GTK831, is a novel and potent Nox4 inhibitor. GKT137831 reduced the increased leukocyte adherence to the vasculature, the pro-inflammatory phenotype of microglia and macroglia, the increased gene and protein expression of vascular endothelial growth factor, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1, and leukocyte adhesion molecules as well as vascular leakage. In all cultured cell types, GKT137831 reduced the hypoxia-induced increase in ROS levels and protein expression of various inflammatory mediators. GKT137831 may be potentially useful as a treatment for a variety of vision-threatening retinopathies.

How to use

In Vitro:

GKT137831 is a potent Nox1/4 inhibitor (Kis=140±40/110±30 nM). Administration of GKT137831 throughout the 72-hour period of normoxia or hypoxia exposure attenuates HPASMC proliferation under normoxic conditions at the 20 μM concentration but had no effect on proliferation in normoxic HPAECs. In the prevention paradigm, GKT137831 attenuates hypoxia-induced HPASMC and HPAEC proliferation at 5 and 20 μM. Complementary assays of cell proliferation measuring the expression of PCNA or manual cell counting confirmed that GKT137831 attenuates hypoxia-induced pulmonary vascular cell proliferation.

In Vivo:

During the last half of CCl4 injections, some mice are treated with GKT137831 daily. CCl4-induced liver fibrosis is more pronounced in SOD1mu compared to WT mice. Liver fibrosis in both SOD1mu and WT mice is attenuated by GKT137831 treatment. The increased hepatic α-SMA expression is markedly decreased in SOD1mu mice treated with GKT137831, to a level similar to that of WT mice given the NOX1/4 inhibitor.
