Product Overview:
Porcupine (PORCN) is a membrane bound O-acyltransferase that mediates palmitoylation of Wnt family proteins.{27064} This step is required for secretion and biologic activity of Wnt proteins, which have roles in embryonic development and cancer.{27064,27062} Wnt-C59 is a potent inhibitor of PORCN, as measured by prevention of Wnt3A activation (IC50 = 74 pM).{27062} As palmitoylation of Wnt is required for its secretion, Wnt-C59 completely blocks Wnt3A secretion into culture media.{27062} Wnt-C59 prevents activation of all evaluated Wnt family members.{27062} This compound is effective in vivo as well as in vitro. Whether given by intravenous (2.5 mg/kg) or oral administration (5 mg/kg), Wnt-C59 displays a half-life in blood of approximately 1.94 hours, and remains greater than 10-fold above the in vitro IC50 concentration for at least 16 hours after a single oral dose.{27062} It blocks the progression of both basal-like and triple-negative breast cancers while downregulating Wnt/β-catenin pathway target genes in mice.{27062,27063}

Cayman Chemical's mission is to help make research possible by supplying scientists worldwide with the basic research tools necessary for advancing human and animal health. Our utmost commitment to healthcare researchers is to offer the highest quality products with an affordable pricing policy.

Our scientists are experts in the synthesis, purification, and characterization of biochemicals ranging from small drug-like heterocycles to complex biolipids, fatty acids, and many others. We are also highly skilled in all aspects of assay and antibody development, protein expression, crystallization, and structure determination.

Over the past thirty years, Cayman developed a deep knowledge base in lipid biochemistry, including research involving the arachidonic acid cascade, inositol phosphates, and cannabinoids. This knowledge enabled the production of reagents of exceptional quality for cancer, oxidative injury, epigenetics, neuroscience, inflammation, metabolism, and many additional lines of research.

Our organic and analytical chemists specialize in the rapid development of manufacturing processes and analytical methods to carry out clinical and commercial GMP-API production. Pre-clinical drug discovery efforts are currently underway in the areas of bone restoration and repair, muscular dystrophy, oncology, and inflammation. A separate group of Ph.D.-level scientists are dedicated to offering Hit-to-Lead Discovery and Profiling Services for epigenetic targets. Our knowledgeable chemists can be contracted to perform complete sample analysis for analytes measured by the majority of our assays. We also offer a wide range of analytical services using LC-MS/MS, HPLC, GC, and many other techniques.
