Biological Activity for Akti-1/2
Akti-1/2 is a potent and selective dual Akt1 and 2 inhibitor (IC50 values are 50 and 210 nM, respectively). Selective for Akt1 and 2 over a panel of other tyrosine and serine/threonine kinases. Sensitizes LnCaP cells to TRAIL (TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand) induced apoptosis. Also enhances CAR and TCR retroviral transduction of human T cells. Active in vivo.

Human osteosarcoma cells were incubated with 10 μM Akti-1/2 for 30 min prior to treatment with 10 μM LPA to estimate COX-2 expression using Western blot analysis. Akti-1/2 abolished LPA-induced COX-2 expression.
MG-63 cells were incubated with PD169316 (25 μM), LY294002 (10 μM) or Akt-1/2 (5 μM Akt-I) for 30 min prior to 15d-PGJ2 treatment (20 μM) for 1 h to follow pAkt expression using Western blot. Akt-1/2 completely blocked 15d-PGJ2-induced Akt phosphorylation in MG-63 cells.
