    DASA-58 purchased from MedChemExpress. Usage Cited in: Drug Des Dev Ther. 2020 May 27;14:2091-2100.  [Abstract]

    The growth inhibition of DHA after 24 hrs together with 40 μM DASA-58 (a PKM2 agonist). Tumor cell growth inhibition is determined by CCK-8 after treated with various concentrations of DHA at different times.

    DASA-58 is a potential pyruvate kinase isozyme (PKM2) allosteric activator. DASA-58 can be used for the research of metabolism and kinds of cancer[1].

    In Vitro

    DASA-58 (15 μM; 2 h) potentiates the antitumor effects of other metabolic stressors[1].
    ? DASA-58 (15 μM; 24 h, 72 h) enhances pyruvate kinase activity in breast cancer cells without a clear effect on proliferation[1].
    ? DASA-58 (30 μM, 60 μM; 0-72 h) enhances extracellular acidification and lactate levels in BCa cell lines and induce extracellular acidification levels in prostate cancer cell lines[1].
    ? DASA-58 (15 μM, 30 μM; 0-72 h) affects respiration levels in BCa cells without an indication of mitochondrial damage[1].
    ? DASA-58 (15 μM; 0-72 h) not rescues TXNIP levels in any combintion and mitochondrial inhibitors enhance PKM2 effects on activating AMPK signaling (T172 phosphorylation of AMPK) [1].
    ? DASA-58 (15 μM; 0-72 h) leads to depletion in TXNIP levels independent of? AMPK and ER signaling, and not through enhanced? proteasomal degradation but rather depleted upstream glycolytic intermediates[1].

    MedChemExpress (MCE) has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

    Cell Viability Assay[1]

    Cell Line: Five breast cancer cell lines (BCa cells)
    (MDA MB 231, MDA MB 468, HCC 1443, T47-D, MCF7, LnCap, PC3, and DU145)
    Concentration: 15 μM
    Incubation Time: 2 h
    Result: Could be exploited by other metabolic stressors.

    Western Blot Analysis[1]

    Cell Line: BCa cells
    Concentration: 15 μM
    Incubation Time: 24 h, 72 h
    Result: Showed comparable PKM2 protein levels in five breast cancer cell lines, except HCC1443 cells and MDA MB 468 that showed the highest and lowest PKM2 protein levels, respectively.
    Not changed PKM2 levels in five breast cancer cell lines but seemingly reduced TXNIP levels in cells expressing detectable TXNIP levels.

    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.
