PZ-128 (P1pal-7), a cell-penetrating lipopeptide pepducin, is a first-in-class, specific and reversible protease-activated receptor-1 (PAR1) antagonist. PZ-128 targets the cytoplasmic surface of PAR1 and interrupts signaling to internally-located G (PAR1-G) proteins. PZ-128 has antiplatelet, anti-metastatic, anti-angiogenic and anticancer effects.

Description

PZ-128 (P1pal-7), a cell-penetrating lipopeptide pepducin, is a first-in-class, specific and reversible protease-activated receptor-1 (PAR1) antagonist. PZ-128 targets the cytoplasmic surface of PAR1 and interrupts signaling to internally-located G (PAR1-G) proteins. PZ-128 has antiplatelet, anti-metastatic, anti-angiogenic and anticancer effects[1][2][3][4].

IC50 & Target

PAR1

 

In Vitro

PZ-128 (P1pal-7; 3 μM) blocks 90-94% of OVCAR-4 migration toward human ovarian ascites and fibroblast conditioned media. The OVCAR4-treated peritoneal fibroblast conditioned media elicits a 2.2-fold increase in endothelial barrier permeability which could be nearly completely inhibited by PZ-128[1].
PZ-128 is a lipidated ‘pepducin’ which targets the cytoplasmic surface of PAR1 and interrupts signaling to internally-located G proteins. The structure of PZ-128 is found to mimic the off-state of the corresponding intracellular region of PAR1 which is critical for coupling to G proteins[3].

In Vivo

PZ-128 (P1pal-7; 10 mg/kg; intraperitoneal injection; every other day; for 6 weeks) treatment significantly reduces mean ascites fluid volume by 60%. PZ-128 treatment also causes a highly significant 84-96% reduction in blood vessel density in both the center and edge of the OVCAR-4 tumors[1].

In Vivo:

Select the appropriate dissolution method based on your experimental animal and administration route.

For the following dissolution methods, please ensure to first prepare a clear stock solution using an In Vitro approach and then sequentially add co-solvents:
To ensure reliable experimental results, the clarified stock solution can be appropriately stored based on storage conditions. As for the working solution for in vivo experiments, it is recommended to prepare freshly and use it on the same day.
The percentages shown for the solvents indicate their volumetric ratio in the final prepared solution. If precipitation or phase separation occurs during preparation, heat and/or sonication can be used to aid dissolution.

  • Protocol 1

    Add each solvent one by one:  10% DMSO    40% PEG300    5% Tween-80    45% Saline

    Solubility: ≥ 2.5 mg/mL (2.30 mM); Clear solution

    This protocol yields a clear solution of ≥ 2.5 mg/mL (saturation unknown).

    Taking 1 mL working solution as an example, add 100 μL DMSO stock solution (25.0 mg/mL) to 400 μL PEG300, and mix evenly; then add 50 μL Tween-80 and mix evenly; then add 450 μL Saline to adjust the volume to 1 mL.

    Preparation of Saline: Dissolve 0.9 g sodium chloride in ddH₂O and dilute to 100 mL to obtain a clear Saline solution.
  • Protocol 2

    Add each solvent one by one:  10% DMSO    90% (20% SBE-β-CD in Saline)

    Solubility: ≥ 2.5 mg/mL (2.30 mM); Clear solution

    This protocol yields a clear solution of ≥ 2.5 mg/mL (saturation unknown).

    Taking 1 mL working solution as an example, add 100 μL DMSO stock solution (25.0 mg/mL) to 900 μL 20% SBE-β-CD in Saline, and mix evenly.

    Preparation of 20% SBE-β-CD in Saline (4°C, storage for one week): 2 g SBE-β-CD powder is dissolved in 10 mL Saline, completely dissolve until clear.

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.
