Product Information

Pictilisib, also known as Pictrelisib, GDC-0941, RG7321 and GNE0941 , is an orally bioavailable, and is a potent small-molecule thieno[3,2-d]pyrimidine inhibitor of the class I phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase (PI3K) isoforms p100alpha and p100delta with potential antineoplastic activity. PI3K inhibitor GDC-0941 selectively binds to PI3K isoforms in an ATP-competitive manner, inhibiting the production of the secondary messenger phosphatidylinositol-3,4,5-trisphosphate (PIP3) and activation of the PI3K/Akt signaling pathway; inhibition of tumor cell growth, motility and survival in susceptible tumor cell populations may result.

In Vitro

Pictilisib (GDC-0941) and RP-56976 reduce tumor cell viability by 80% or greater in the breast cancer cell lines than single-agent treatment. GDC-0941 inhibits Akt phosphorylation and downstream targets of Akt signaling such as pPRAS40 and pS6 in Hs578T1.2 (PI3Kα wild-type), MCF7-neo/HER2 (PI3Kα-mutant), and MX-1 (PTEN-null) tumor models. Pictilisib (GDC-0941) decreases the time of RP-56976-induced mitotic arrest prior to apoptosis[1]. Pictilisib (GDC-0941) shows a high efficacy of antitumor activity in two ZD1839-resistant non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell lines, A549 and H460. Pictilisib (GDC-0941) is highly efficacious in combination with U0126 in inducing cell growth inhibition, G0-G1 arrest and cell apoptosis. H460 cells with activating mutations of PIK3CA are relatively more sensitive to Pictilisib (GDC-0941) than A549 cells with wild-type PIK3CA. Pictilisib (GDC-0941) reduces PI3K pathway activity in both cell lines, illustrated by decreased pAK. Pictilisib (GDC-0941) significantly reduces secreted VEGF detected in the medium after hypoxic/anoxic exposure in all cells.


In Vivo

Pictilisib (GDC-0941) (150 mg/kg, p.o.) leads to tumor stasis in MCF7-neo/HER2-bearing animals model. Pictilisib (GDC-0941) and RP-56976 result in tumor regressions during the treatment period leading to enhanced antitumor responses. Tumours in the Pictilisib (GDC-0941)-treated mice show a marked non-linear shrinkage, and when the Pictilisib (GDC-0941) treatment ceased, the tumours in the test cohort mice grow again. Pictilisib (GDC-0941) (25 or 50 mg/kg) reduces tumor growth and PI3K and HIF-1 pathway activity in eGFP-FTC133 tumor-bearing mice.
