YM-53601 

Cat. No.: HY-100313A
Handling Instructions

YM-53601, a squalene synthase inhibitor, reduces plasma cholesterol and triglyceride levels in vivo. YM-53601 inhibits squalene synthase derived from human hepatoma cells with an IC50 of 79 nM. Lipid-lowering agent. YM-53601 is also an inhibitor of farnesyl-diphosphate farnesyltransferase 1 (FDFT1) enzyme activity and abrogates HCV propagation.

Description

YM-53601, a squalene synthase inhibitor, reduces plasma cholesterol and triglyceride levels in vivo[1]. YM-53601 inhibits squalene synthase derived from human hepatoma cells with an IC50 of 79 nM. Lipid-lowering agent[2]. YM-53601 is also an inhibitor of farnesyl-diphosphate farnesyltransferase 1 (FDFT1) enzyme activity and abrogates HCV propagation[3].

In Vitro

YM-53601 inhibits squalene synthase activities in hepatic microsomes from several species of rat, hamster, guinea-pig, rhesus monkey, and human-derived HepG2 cell with IC50s of 90, 170, 46, 45, and 79 nM, respectively[1].
YM-53601 inhibits conversion of [3H]farnesyl diphosphate to [3H]squalene by hamster liver squalene synthase with the IC50 of 170 nM[2].
YM-53601 (1 μM) potentiates the susceptibility of H35 cells to thapsigargin, lonidamine, and doxorubicin. YM-53601 (1 μM) reduces the mitochondrial cholesterol levels in both H35 and HepG2 cells[4].

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

Cell Viability Assay[4]

Cell Line: H35 and HepG2 cells
Concentration: 1 μM
Incubation Time: 24 hours
Result: Reduced the mitochondrial cholesterol levels in both H35 and HepG2 cells.
In Vivo

YM-53601 suppresses cholesterol biosynthesis in rats (ED50, 32 mg/kg)[1].
YM-53601 also reduces plasma non-HDL cholesterol levels in hamsters by approximately 70% at an oral dose of 50 mg/kg/day for 5 days[2].
YM-53601 potentiates Doxorubicin-mediated hepatocellular carcinoma cells (HCC) growth arrest and cell death in vivo[4].

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

Animal Model: Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats weighing 150-170 g[1]
Dosage: 6.25, 12.5, 25 or 50 mg/kg
Administration: Given a single p.o.
Result: Inhibited cholesterol biosynthesis from acetate in a dose-dependent manner in rats. The ED50 value for YM-53601 cholesterol biosynthesis inhibition is 32  mg/kg.
Animal Model: Five- to six-week-old male BALB/c athymic (nu/nu) nude mice[4]
Dosage: 15 mg/kg
Administration: 2 wk of daily treatment by p.o. gavage
Result: Significantly decreased the intratumor cholesterol levels.
