    Afuresertib is an orally available, ATP-competitive, pan-AKT inhibitor with Ki of 0.08, 2 and 2.6 nM against AKT1, AKT2 and AKT3, respectively.

    IC50 & Target

    Ki: 0.08 nM (AKT1), 2 nM (AKT2), 2.6 nM (AKT3)[1]
    IC50: 0.2 nM (AKT1E17K), 1.3 nM (PKA), 0.9 nM (PKG1α), 4 nM (PKG1β)[1]

    In Vitro

    Afuresertib (GSK2110183) shows concentration-dependent effect on multiple AKT substrate phosphorylation levels, including GSK3β, PRAS40, FOXO and Caspase 9 in both BT474 and LNCaP cell lines. GSK2110183 consistently has potent anti-proliferative effects on a variety of hematological malignancies. Overall 65% of the hematological cell lines are sensitive to GSK2110183 (EC50<1 µM). Among solid tumor cell lines, 21% have EC50<1 µM in response to GSK2110183[1].

    In Vivo

    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 results in 8, 37 and 61% tumor growth inhibition (TGI), respectively. Mice tolerates GSK2110183 well, with 1-3% body weight loss reported after 5 days of dosing which recovers 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 bearing SKOV3 ovarian tumor xenografts with 10, 20 and 30 mg/kg GSK2141795 QD displays a 73, 85 or 93% TGI, respectively, compared to vehicle control. Similarly, mice treated with GSK2110183 at 10, 30 and 100 mg/kg results in 23, 37 and 97% TGI, respectively, of SKOV3 xenografts[1].

    Kinase Assay

    The potency of compounds against AKT enzymes is measured. Since Afuresertib (GSK2110183) and GSK2141795 are highly potent inhibitors of the 3 isoforms of AKT, the true potency (Ki) of the inhibitors is initially determined at low enzyme concentrations (0.1 nM AKT1, 0.7 nM AKT2, and 0.2 nM AKT3) using a filter binding assay and then confirmed with progress curve analysis. In the filter binding assay, a pre-mix of enzyme plus inhibitor is incubated for 1 h and then added to a GSKα peptide (Ac-KKGGRARTSSFAEPG-amide) and [γ33P] ATP. Reactions are terminated after 2 h and the radio labeled AKT peptide product is captured in a phospho-cellulose filter plate. Progress curve analysis utilized continuous real-time fluorescence detection of product formation using the Sox-AKT-tide substrate (Ac-ARKRERAYSF-d-Pro-Sox-Gly-NH2). GSK2110183 and GSK2141795 are tested against a diverse panel of kinase assays at GlaxoSmithKline and Millipore. Initially, the compounds are tested at 0.5 and 10 µM in all available kinase assays and are followed up with full IC50 curves against a subset of enzymes that showed strong inhibition against 0.5 µM, for which in-house assay are not available[1]. MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

    Cell Assay

    Afuresertib (GSK2110183) is dissolved in DMSO (10 mM) and stored, and then diluted with appropriate media before use[1].

    BT474 and LNCaP cell lines are typically grown in RPMI 160 medium containing 10% FBS. Some cell lines are grown in media specified by the vendor. A 3-day proliferation assay using CellTiter-Glo (CTG) is performed to measure the growth inhibition by the compounds (e.g., Afuresertib) at 0-30 µM. Cell growth is determined relative to untreated (DMSO) controls. EC50's are calculated from inhibition curves using a 4- or 6-parameter fitting algorithm in the Assay Client application[1]. MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

    Animal Administration

    Afuresertib (GSK2110183) is formulated in 20% polyethylene glycol (PEG) 400/1% DMSO (Mice)[1].

    Tumors are initiated by injecting either cells (SKOV3, CAPAN-2 and HPAC) or a tumor fragments (BT474) subcutaneously into 6-8 week female athymic nude (SKOV3) and SCID (all others) mice. Once tumors reached between 120 and 300 mm3, mice are randomized according to tumor volume into groups of n=7-10 mice per treatment. GSK2110183 and GSK2141795 are administered daily at various doses by oral gavage. In combination experiments, GSK1120212 is also administered daily by oral gavage. Tumor volumes and body weight are measured twice weekly, tumor volume is measured with calipers and calculated using equation: Tumor volume (mm3)=(length×width)2/2. Results are represented as percent inhibition on completion of dosing=100×[1-average growth of drug-treated population/average growth of vehicle-treated control population]. MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.
