Description: ONX-0801, also known as BGC 945, is a cyclopenta[g]quinazoline–based, thymidylate synthase inhibitor specifically transported into α-folate receptor (α-FR)–overexpressing tumors. Affinity of BGC 945 for the α-FR is 70% of the high-affinity ligand folic acid. In contrast to conventional antifolates, BGC 945 has low affinity for the widely expressed reduced-folate carrier (RFC). The Ki for isolated thymidylate synthase is 1.2 nmol/L and the IC50 for inhibition of the growth of α-FR-negative mouse L1210 or human A431 cells is ~ 7 μmol/L. In contrast, BGC 945 is highly potent in a range of α-FR-overexpressing human tumor cell lines (IC50 ~1-300 nmol/L). BGC 945 selectively inhibits thymidylate synthase in α-FR-overexpressing tumors and should cause minimal toxicity to humans at therapeutic doses.
