Near complete ablation of RA-induced transcription in MCF7 cells
By Anonymous on 11/02/2019
Application: Species: Human

AGN193109 was dissolved to a concentration of 20 mM in DMSO with no solubility issues. Retinoic acid (10 uM), DMSO, or RA + AGN193109 (1 uM) was added to MCF7 cells for 5 hours following by qPCR analysis of a reporter gene normalized to GAPDH levels. There was no apoptosis in MCF7 cells at 1 uM inhibitor for up to 9 hours even though this has been reported elsewhere. 1 uM of inhibitor almost completely ablated RA induced gene transcription by qPCR. HX531 performed slightly better in our analysis, but the experiment was only performed once.
