  • Obatoclax, also known as GX15-070, is a novel Bcl-2 homology domain-3 (BH3) mimetic. It occupies a hydrophobic cleft within the BH3 binding groove of Bcl-2, antagonizing Bcl-2 and thus inducing apoptosis. Chonghaile, T.N. and Letai, A. "Mimicking the BH3 domain to kill cancer cells." Oncogene 27: S149-S157 (2008).
  • Obatoclax inhibited primary acute myeloid leukemia (AML) progenitor cell proliferation with an average IC50 of 0.18 ± 0.07 µM. Obatoclax potently induced apoptosis in primary AML cells with an average IC50 of 3.6 ± 1.2 µM. Konopleva, M., et al. "Mechanisms of antileukemic activity of the novel Bcl-2 homology domain-3 mimetic GX15-070 (Obatoclax)." Cancer Res. 68: 3413-3420 (2008).
  • Obatoclax had a synergistic antitumor effect with the novel BH3 mimetic ABT-737 on inducing apoptosis in OCI-AML3 cells. It also had a synergistic antitumor effect with AraC (1-β-D-arabinofuranosyl cytosine) on inducing apoptosis in leukemic cell lines and primary AML samples. Konopleva, M., et al. "Mechanisms of antileukemic activity of the novel Bcl-2 homology domain-3 mimetic GX15-070 (Obatoclax)." Cancer Res. 68: 3413-3420 (2008).
  • Obatoclax overcomes Bcl-2-, Bcl-xL-, Bcl-w-, and Mcl-1-mediated resistance to BAX or BAK. Obatoclax also overcomes the Mcl-1-confered resistance to the BCL-2/BCL-XL/BCL-w-selective antagonist ABT-737 and to the proteasome inhibitor bortezomib. Nguyen, M., et al. "Small molecule obatoclax (GX15-070) antagonizes MCL-1 and overcomes MCL-1-mediated resistance to apoptosis." Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 104: 19512-19517 (2007).
  • Obatoclax released Bak from Mcl-1 and Bcl-xL and induced apoptosis in mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) cell lines and primary cells from patients with MCL. Obatoclax neutralized bortezomib-induced Mcl-1 accumulation and cooperated with Noxa to induce Bak displacement from this protein, and synergized with bortezomib and sensitized MCL cells to low doses of this proteasome inhibitor. Pérez-Galán, P., et al. "The BH3-mimetic GX15-070 synergizes with bortezomib in mantle cell lymphoma by enhancing Noxa-mediated activation of Bak." Blood 109: 4441-4449 (2007).
  • Obatoclax augmented tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL)-mediated apoptosis, possibly by releasing Bak and Bim from Bcl-2/Bcl-xL or Mcl-1 proteins in human pancreatic cancer cells.
