HX531 was dissolved to a concentration of 20 mM in DMSO with no solubility issues. Retinoic acid (10 uM), DMSO, or RA + HX531 (1 uM) was added to MCF7 cells for 5 hours following by qPCR analysis of a reporter gene normalized to GAPDH levels. 1 uM of HX531 completely ablated RA induced gene transcription by qPCR. This inhibitor exhibited lower variability than AGN193109, however this was repeated only once, and both inhibitors could completely ablate activity, either alone or in combination. We also added retinal to confirm that our reporter activity was retinoic acid-specific.
No apoptosis has been observed in any of our cells lines at 1 uM
