Tipifarnib (IND 58359) binds to and inhibits farnesyltransferase (FTase) with an IC50 of 0.86 nM. Antineoplastic activity and antiparasitic activity[1].

IC50 & Target

IC50: 0.86 nM (FTase)

In Vitro

Tipifarnib is a potent inhibitor of Trypanosoma Cruzi with the ED50 of 4 nM[1].
Tipifarnib inhibits isolated human farnesyltransferase for a lamin B peptide and for the K-RasB peptide with IC50 of 0.86 nM and 7.9 nM, respectively[2].
Tipifarnib shows inhibition of cell growth or angiogenesis, and induction of apoptosis in aggressive prostate cancer (PCa)[3].
Tipifarnib (0.25 μM, 1 μM; 48 h) shows a significant decrease in the concentration of exosomes in C4-2B cells and PC-3 cells[3].
Tipifarnib (1 μM) significantly inhibits the protein concentration of Alix, nSMase2, and Rab27a in C4-2B cells[3].
Tipifarnib (0.25 μM) significantly inhibits the activation of p-ERK (downstream effector molecule of the Ras/Raf/ERK signaling pathway) but not total ERK in C4-2B and PC-3 cells[3].
Tipifarnib (1.25-5 μM; 30 min) promotes endoplasmic reticulum stress in U937 cells, resulting in dysregulation of intracellular calcium homeostasis[4].

In Vivo

Tipifarnib (10 mg/kg; ip; single dose) upregulated antiapoptotic protein, Bcl-xL in liver, and prevents mosue death induced by GalN/LPS[5].

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.
