Biological Activity for TAK 960 hydrochloride

TAK 960 hydrochloride is a potent PLK1 inhibitor (IC50 values are 0.8, 16.9 and 50.2 nM for PLK1, PLK2 and PLK3 respectively). Exhibits >20-fold selectivity for PLK1 over FAK, MLCK and FES, and has minimal activity against a panel of 282 other kinases. Inhibits proliferation of a range of cancer cell lines in vitro and inhibits tumor growth of multiple human cancer cell xenografts in vivo. Orally bioavailable.

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.
