Afuresertib, also known as GSK2110183, is an orally bioavailable inhibitor of the serine/threonine protein kinase Akt (protein kinase B) with potential antineoplastic activity. Akt inhibitor GSK2110183 binds to and inhibits the activity of Akt, which may result in inhibition of the PI3K/Akt signaling pathway and tumor cell proliferation and the induction of tumor cell apoptosis. Activation of the PI3K/Akt signaling pathway is frequently associated with tumorigenesis and dysregulated PI3K/Akt signaling may contribute to tumor resistance to a variety of antineoplastic agents.

How to use
Afuresertib (GSK 2110183) exhibits favorable tumor-suppressive effects on malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) cells. Afuresertib significantly increases caspase-3 and caspase-7 activities and apoptotic cell number among ACC-MESO-4 and MSTO-211H cells. Afuresertib strongly arrests the cell cycle in the G1 phase. Western blotting analysis shows that Afuresertib increases the expression of p21WAF1/CIP1 and decreases the phosphorylation of Akt substrates, including GSK-3β and FOXO family proteins. Afuresertib-induced p21 expression promotes G1 phase arrest by inducing FOXO activity. Afuresertib significantly enhances cisplatin-induced cytotoxicity. Afuresertib modulates the expression E2F1 and MYC, which are associated with fibroblast core serum response.
Mice bearing BT474 breast tumor xenografts are dosed orally with either vehicle or GSK2110183 at 10, 30 or 100 mg/kg daily for 21 days which result in 8, 37 and 61% TGI, respectively. Mice tolerated GSK2110183 well, with 1-3% body weight loss reported after 5 days of dosing which recover over the course of the study. Other tumor xenograft models which possess an activation of the Akt pathway are explored to further demonstrate compound efficacy. Mice treated with GSK2110183 at 10, 30 and 100 mg/kg result in 23, 37 and 97% TGI, respectively, of SKOV3 xenografts.
