Product Information

Ingenol mebutate, also known as ingenol-3-angelate, is a substance found in the sap of the plant Euphorbia peplus and an inducer of cell death. Ingenol Mebutate was approved for the topical treatment of actinic keratosis. Ingenol mebutate has also been found to be useful for reactivating latent HIV virus in cells taken from individuals who have tested negative for signs of the disease following extended courses of anti-retroviral drugs, raising the possibility that this drug may be used to expose the last traces of virus, and thus potentially provide a permanent cure for HIV infection.

In Vitro:

Ingenol Mebutate (Ingenol 3-angelate) is an active ingredient in Euphorbia peplus, acting as a potent PKC activator, with Kis of 0.3, 0.105, 0.162, 0.376, and 0.171 nM for PKC-α, PKC-β, PKC-γ, PKC-δ, and PKC-ε, respectively. Ingenol Mebutate also EC50s of 13 ± 2.4 nM (PKC-α), 4.37 ± 0.4 nM (PKC-βI), 10.5 ± 2.2 nM (PKC-βII), 38.6 ± 2.9 nM (PKC-δ), 1.08 ± 0.01 nM (PKC-ε), 0.9 ± 0.13 nM (PKC-μ) in WEHI-231 cells, 198 ± 12.5 nM (PKC-α), 69.1 ± 8.2 nM (PKC-βI), 4.6 ± 0.4 nM (PKC-ε) and 1 nM (PKC-μ) in HOP-92 cells, 635 ± 245 nM (PKC-α), 146 ± 35 nM (PKC-βI), 4.7 ± 0.7 nM (PKC-δ), 1.1 ± 0.5 nM (PKC-ε), and 30 nM (PKC-μ) in Colo-205 cells. Ingenol Mebutate sensitizes WEHI-231 cells, HOP-92 and Colo-205 cells, with IC50s of 1.41 ± 0.255 nM, 3.24 ± 2.01 nM, and 11.9 ± 1.307 nM, respectively. Ingenol Mebutate (PEP005; 20 nM) actions are PKC-δ dependent, induces apoptosis in primary AML marrow blasts but not in normal myeloblasts. Ingenol Mebutate (PEP005) activates PKCδ and inhibits PKCα. Colo205-R cells (IC50: >10 μM) are >300-fold more resistant to Ingenol Mebutate than parental Colo205-S cells.
