Description: Pevonedistat, also known as MLN-4924 and TAK-924, is a small molecule inhibitor of Nedd8 activating enzyme (NAE) with potential antineoplastic activity. NAE inhibitor MLN4924 binds to and inhibits NAE, which may result in the inhibition of tumor cell proliferation and survival. NAE activates Nedd8 (Neural precursor cell expressed, developmentally down-regulated 8), an ubiquitin-like (UBL) protein that modifies cellular targets in a pathway that is parallel to but distinct from the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway (UPP).

Additional Information

In vivo administration of MLN4924 to mice bearing xenograft tumors of OCI-Ly10 and OCI-Ly19 resulted in a pharmacodynamic response of NAE pathway inhibition. In both models, a single dose of MLN4924 resulted in time and dose-dependent inhibition of total neddylated cullin levels and stabilization of CDL substrates including the CDL3Keap1 substrate, Nrf-2. Notably, in the OCI-Ly10 model, a single dose of MLN4924 resulted in a marked elevation of pIkBa levels, indicative of NF-kB pathway inhibition, and induction of apoptosis. In both OCI-Ly10 and OCI-Ly19 xenograft models, inhibition of the NAE pathway following repeated daily and intermittent dosing of MLN4924 translated into significant tumor growth inhibition. In the OCI-Ly10 model tumor regressions were observed showing this model to be particularly sensitive to MLN4924 treatment, reflecting the addiction of these tumors to NF-kB signaling. Additionally we demonstrate an inhibition of the NAE pathway and NF-KB signaling in a primary human tumor DLBCL xenograft model (PHTX-22L) resulting in tumor regressions following MLN4924 treatment. In summary, in tumors dependent on NF-kB signaling for growth and survival, MLN4924 inhibition of CDL activity provides a novel mechanism for targeted NF-kB pathway modulation and therapeutic intervention. In addition, these data demonstrate that MLN4924 is a novel agent that has broad activity in pre-clinical models of lymphoma.
