Description: AFP-464 is a synthetic lysyl prodrug of the amino-substituted flavone derivate aminoflavone with antiproliferative and antineoplastic activities. AFP464 is rapidly converted to aminoflavone in plasma. Aminoflavone activates the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) signaling pathway leading to an increase in cytochrome P450 1A1 (CYP1A1) and cytochrome P450 1A2 (CYP1A2) expression and, to a lesser extent, an increase in cytochrome P450 1B1 (CYP1B1) expression. Subsequently, aminoflavone is metabolized to toxic metabolites by the cytochromome P450 enzymes that it induces; these toxic metabolites covalently bind to DNA, resulting in the phosphorylation of p53, the induction of the p53 downstream target p21Waf1/Cip1, and apoptosis.

Additional Information

According to, AFP-464, a lysyl pro-drug of aminoflavone (AF), is synthesized to improve the aqueous solubility of the parent compound AF. AFP-464 undergoes rapid conversion to AF in plasma by nonspecific plasma esterases. AF is an investigational anticancer agent with a unique pattern of growth inhibitory activity in the NCI 60 tumor cell line screen (COMPARE analysis;, suggesting a novel mechanism of action. Human tumor cell lines that exhibited particular sensitivity to AF included those of breast and renal origin. In vivo antitumor activity of AF was demonstrated in several xenograft studies in mice bearing A-498, CaKi-1 renal and MCF-7 breast cancer. Previous studies with human breast and renal cancer cell lines showed that AF induced CYP1A1/1A2 and CYP1B1 protein expression and was converted to metabolites that were covalently bound to DNA. This resulted in phosphorylation of p53 with induction of the p53 downstream target p21Waf1/Cip1 and apotosis.
