Description Veliparib (ABT-888) is an orally bioavailable inhibitor of PARP (Kis: 5.2/2.9 nM for PARP1/2). It enhances apoptosis and autophagy.
In vitro Veliparib (ABT-888) is a potent inhibitor of both PARP-1 and PARP-2 with K(i)s of 5.2 and 2.9 nmol/L, respectively [1]. In the HaCaT cell model, ABT-888 can reduce SM-induced NAD(+)/ATP depletion and apoptosis/necrosis [2]. ABT-888 reduced clonogenic survival in H460 lung cancer cells and inhibited DNA repair as shown by enhanced expression of DNA strand break marker histone gamma-H2AX [3].
In vivo PARP inhibition dramatically increased the efficacy of temozolomide at ABT-888 doses as low as 3.1 mg/kg/d and a maximal efficacy achieved at 25 mg/kg/d. In the MX-1 breast xenograft model (BRCA1 deletion and BRCA2 mutation), ABT-888 potentiated cisplatin, carboplatin, and cyclophosphamide, causing regression of established tumors, whereas, with comparable doses of cytotoxic agents alone, only modest tumor inhibition was exhibited [1]. ABT-888 increased tumor growth delay at well-tolerated doses in murine models. For a 5-fold increase in tumor volume, tumor growth delay was 1 day for ABT-888 alone, 7 days for radiation alone, and 13.5 days for combination treatment. A decrease in vitro endothelial tubule formation with ABT-888/radiation combination treatment and von Willebrand factor staining of tumor sections revealed decreased vessel formation in vivo [3].
Kinase Assay PARP assays were conducted in a buffer containing 50 mmol/L Tris (pH 8.0), 1 mmol/L DTT, 1.5 μmol/L [3H]NAD+ (1.6 μCi/mmol), 200 nmol/L biotinylated histone H1, 200 nmol/L slDNA, and 1 nmol/L PARP-1 or 4 nmol/L PARP-2 enzyme. Reactions were terminated with 1.5 mmol/L benzamide, transferred to streptavidin Flash plates, and counted using a TopCount microplate scintillation counter [1].
Cell Research Cell viability was quantified using the Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8). This assay is based on Dojindo's highly water-soluble tetrazolium salt. WST-8 is reduced by dehydrogenases in cells to give an orange, water-soluble formazan dye. The amount of formazan dye generated by dehydrogenases in cells is directly proportional to the number of living cells. Briefly, exponentially growing HaCaT cells were seeded in 96-well plates at a density of 10,000 cells/well. 6 h or 24 h after exposure to SM and the administration of ABT-888, the CCK-8 reagent was added as recommended by the supplier [2].
Animal Research For oral pharmacokinetic studies, ABT-888 was separated from plasma and brain homogenate using liquid-liquid extraction with a mixture of ethyl acetate and hexane at alkaline pH. ABT-888 and the internal standard were separated from each other and coextracted contaminants on a 50 × 3 mm Keystone Betasil Cyano 5 μm C18 column with acetonitrile: 0.1% trifluoroacetic acid mobile phase (40:60, by volume) at a flow rate of 0.3 mL/min. Analysis was done on a Sciex API3000 Biomolecular Mass Analyzer with a turbo-ionspray interface using Sciex MacQuan software. The analysis of plasma pharmacokinetics from osmotic minipump (OMP) studies was conducted using acidified methanol precipitated plasma. Samples were injected onto a Phenomenex Synergi 4μ Polar RP column and ABT-888 eluted with a mixture of acetonitrile and 0.1% acetic acid in water at a flow rate of 0.4 mL/min. Mass analysis was done with a ThermoFinnigan LCQ Duo using Xcalibur software [1].

An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
Enter 197.13 into the Molecular Weight (MW) box
Enter 10 into the Concentration box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 10 into the Volume box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 19.713 mg appears in the Mass box

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution
The dilution calculator is a useful tool which allows you to calculate how to dilute a stock solution of known concentration. Enter C1, C2 & V2 to calculate V1.

See Example

An example of a dilution calculation using the Tocris dilution calculator
What volume of a given 10 mM stock solution is required to make 20ml of a 50 μM solution?
Using the equation C1V1 = C2V2, where C1=10 mM, C2=50 μM, V2=20 ml and V1 is the unknown:
Enter 10 into the Concentration (start) box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 50 into the Concentration (final) box and select the correct unit (micromolar)
Enter 20 into the Volume (final) box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 100 microliter (0.1 ml) appears in the Volume (start) box
