MK591

Cat No.
CEI-1431
Description
MK591(Quiflapon sodium) is selective and specific inhibitor of 5-Lipoxygenase-activating protein (FLAP).
Product Overview
IC50: 1.6 nM in a FLAP binding assay for MK-0591, which is the acid form of MK591. Arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase-activating protein is necessary for the activation of 5-lipoxygenase and therefore for the production of leukotrienes. MK-591 (MK-0591 sodium) is a selective and specific 5-Lipoxygenase-activating protein (FLAP) inhibitor. Clinical trial: In an open-label and pilot study, short-term therapy with MK-591 reduces proteinuria by restoring glomerular size selectivity and thus reduces transglomerular protein trafficking. These benefits may result from glomerular leukotriene biosynthesis inhibition, but other MK-591-specific actions cannot be excluded.

In vitro
A series of performed inhibitor studies identified a specific inhibitor of 5-LO (MK-591), which has the ability to block JNK, MAPK and 5-LO signaling-cascades and drastically reducing the activity of pro-inflammatory cytokine TNF-a. Further evaluation of MK-591 utilizing cell proliferation assays in PBMCs, human proximal tubule cells showed a decrease in cell proliferation.
In vivo
Amyloid β peptide (Aβ) deposition in the brains of mice receiving MK-591 was significantly reduced when compared with controls. MK-591 treatment did not cause any change in the steady-state levels ofβ-site amyloid precursor protein cleaving enzyme 1, amyloid-β precursor protein or disintegrin and metalloproteinase domain-containing protein 10.By contrast, MK-591 caused a significant reduction of the γ-secretase complex, at the protein and message level.
