COA Handling Instructions

Apilimod (STA 5326) is a potent IL-12/IL-23 inhibitor, and strongly inhibits IL-12 with IC50s of 1 nM and 2 nM, in IFN-γ/SAC-stimulated human PBMCs and SAC-treated monkey PBMCs, respectively. Apilimod is a potent and highly selective PIKfyve inhibitor.

    PIKfyve inhibition affects the autophagy pathway. Cellular LC3-II levels are measured by Western blot after cells are treated with or without concanamycin A (50 nM) during the last 4 h of the preincubation step with Apilimod.

    In Vitro

    Apilimod inhibits IFN-γ production induced by either IFN-γ/SAC or SAC in human PBMCs, with an IC50 of approximately 20 nM. Apilimod show some inhibition against IFN-γ/SAC-induced TNF-α and ConA-induced IL-5 from human PBMCs at high concentrations, but no suppressive effect against IL-1β, IL-2, IL-4, IL-8, and IL-18 in all cultures tested. The p35 and p40 promoter-driven luciferase activities are significantly induced after stimulation with IFN-γ/LPS or IFN-γ/SAC, and are completely suppressed by 100 nM Apilimod[1].

    In Vivo

    Apilimod (10 mg/kg, p.o.) is effective not only when administered throughout the entire experiment, but also when administration is initiated on day 30 when disease is clearly measurable but not maximal. TA-5326 causes a significant reduction in cell number only in the Th1 model, with an average percentage of inhibition of 51%±8% relative to the vehicle control. Apilimod treatment has no effect in the Th2 setting[1]. Apilimod (5 or 20 mg/kg, p.o.) reduces the level of IL-12 p40 in serum without altering body weight in EAU mice. Oral administration of Apilimod reduces the severity of experimental autoimmune uveoretinitis (EAU) by clinical and histopathological analysis[2].

    Cell Assay
    [2]

    Cervical lymph node cells obtained from immunized mice on day 18 (2×105 cells/well) arecultured in 0.2 mL RPMI 1640 containing 10 mM HEPES, 0.1 mM nonessential amino acid, 1 mM sodium pyruvate, 1×10-5 M 2-mercaptoethanol, 10% FCS, and 10 μg/mL IRBP1-20. For cytokine assay, supernatants are collected after 72 hours and analysed for IFN-γ, IL-4 and IL-17 by quantitative capture ELISA using quantikine ELISA kits and mouse IL-17 ELISA Ready-SET-Go kits. Cell proliferation is evaluated using a cell proliferation assay.

    Animal Administration
    [2]

    In most experiments, 5 mg/kg or 20 mg/kg Apilimod or vehicle only (0.5% carboxyl methyl cellulose) is orally administered once a day for six days a week from day 0 to day 14 after immunization. In the effector phase experiments, 20 mg/kg Apilimod or vehicle is orally administered once a day, from day 9 to day 14 after immunization.

    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.
