COA Handling Instructions

5-azacytidine (azacitidine; 5-azaC; ladakamycine) est un analogue nucléosidique de la cytidine qui inhibe spécifiquement la méthylation de l'ADN. 5-azacytidine est incorporée dans l'ADN pour piéger de manière covalente les ADN méthyltransférases et contribue à inverser les changements épigénétiques. 5-azacytidine induit l'autophagie cellulaire.

5-Azacytidin (Azacitidin; 5-AzaC; Ladakamycin) ist ein Nukleosidanalogon von Cytidin, das spezifisch die DNA-Methylierung hemmt. 5-Azacytidin wird in die DNA eingebaut, um DNA methyltransferases kovalent einzufangen, und trägt zur Umkehrung epigenetischer Veränderungen bei. 5-Azacytidin induziert die Zellautophagie.

    Description

    5-Azacytidine (Azacitidine; 5-AzaC; Ladakamycin) is a nucleoside analogue of cytidine that specifically inhibits DNA methylation. 5-Azacytidine is incorporated into DNA to covalently trap DNA methyltransferases and contributes to reverse epigenetic changes[1][2]. 5-Azacytidine induces cell autophagy[4].

    In Vitro

    Unmethylated CpG islands associated with a variety of genes become partially or fully methylated in tumors and can be reactivated by 5-Azacytidine[1]. 5-Azacytidine acts as weak inducers of erythroid differentiation of Friend erythroleukemia cells in the same concentration range where they affect DNA methyltransferase activity[2]. 5-Azacytidine inhibits L1210 cells with ID50 and ID90 values of 0.019 and circa 0.15 μg/mL, respectively[3].

    In Vivo

    TdR-3H incorporation is significantly inhibited when the animals are exposed to 5-Azacitidine (100 mg/kg, i.p.) for 2 hr or longer[3].

    Kinase Assay
    [3]

    A crude cell-free extract is isolated from LI 210 cells in culture by suspension of the cells in a given volume of 0.05mol/LTris-HCl buffer, pH 7.4, and sonic extraction with a Biosonik at 70% maximal output for 30 sec. The supernatant is collected after centrifugation at 105,000 × g for 60 min (4°C) in a Model L Spinco ultracentrifuge. The final protein concentration of the cell-free extracts is approximately 3 mg/mL. The extracts are used as the source of enzymes. Ribonucleotide reductase activity is measured. A unit of enzyme is defined as the amount that catalyzed dCMP synthesis at a rate of 1 mμmole/hr. The assay systems for the measurement of pyrimidine nucleoside (CR) and deoxynucleoside (TdR, CdR) kinases are essentially those described by Chu and Fischer. However, reactions are terminated by heating for 2 min in a boiling water bath, and the phosphorylated derivatives are isolated according to the method of Bach. Fifty-jul aliquots are applied to 1-inch discs of diethylaminoethyl paper, which are then placed in counting vials and eluted with 0.5 mL of 0.5 mol/LPCA. After 1 hr, 12 mL of Diotol are added, and the radioactivity is determined.

    Cell Assay
    [3]

    Twenty mL of cells (circa 1×104 cells/mL) are pipetted into sterilized culture tubes with screw caps and incubated at 37°C overnight. The experiment is initiated by the addition of 1 mL of 5-Azacytidine (5-azaCR) or medium for a given period (from 0 to 240 min) prior to the addition of 1 mL of metabolite (or medium). Cell growth is determined twice a day for 3 days by means of a Model A Coulter counter. To determine IDSO and ID90 values, 5 mL of L1210 cells (5×103 cells/mL) are incubated with the drug at 37°C for 3 days, and cell growth is determined.

    Animal Administration
    [3]

    For the in vivo experiments, leukemic mice (bearing circa 1×103 cells/animal) are given injections i.p. with 0.2 mL of 5-Azacytidine (5-azaCR) of a given concentration. Two hr later, the reaction is started by injecting 0.5 mL of labeled metabolite (TdR-3H or UR-3H, 10 /μCi/12.5 μg). After 1 hr, animals (3 mice/group) are killed by cervical fracture.

    Help & FAQs
    • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

      Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
