Dual PI 3-K and DNA-PK inhibitor (IC50 values are <0.1, 0.5, 4 and 19 nM for PI 3-Kδ, PI 3-Kβ, PI 3-Kα and DNA-PK respectively). Inhibits proliferation of MCF7 cells in vitro and delays growth of MCF7 xenografts in mice. Also enhances CRISPR-Cas9-mediated homology-directed repair (HDR) efficiency ~2 to 4-fold, and decreases nonhomologous end-joining (NHEJ) frequency ~40%; maximum effect seen at 250 nM.

Cell Cycle & DNA Damage Repair Poster
In normal cells, each stage of the cell cycle is tightly regulated, however in cancer cells many genes and proteins that are involved in the regulation of the cell cycle are mutated or over expressed. Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the stages of the cell cycle and DNA repair. It also highlights strategies for enhancing replicative stress in cancer cells to force mitotic catastrophe and cell death.
