Description: Geldanamycin is a benzoquinone ansamycin antibiotic that binds to Hsp90 (Heat Shock Protein 90) and inhibits its function. HSP90 client proteins play important roles in the regulation of the cell cycle, cell growth, cell survival, apoptosis, angiogenesis and oncogenesis. Hsp90-geldanamycin complex. PDB 1yet Geldanamycin induces the degradation of proteins that are mutated in tumor cells such as v-Src, Bcr-Abl and p53 preferentially over their normal cellular counterparts. This effect is mediated via HSP90. Despite its potent antitumor potential, geldanamycin presents several major drawbacks as a drug candidate (namely, hepatotoxicity) that have led to the development of geldanamycin analogues.

|Biological target:||Geldanamycin is a Hsp90 inhibitor with antimicrobial activity against many Gram-positive and some Gram-negative bacteria as well as has anti-influenza virus H5N1 activities.|
|In vitro activity:||To examine the effect of GA (Geldanamycin), an HSP 90 inhibitor, in the expression of HSPs, the expression levels of HSP 70 and HSP 90 were examined. GA resulted in the increased expression of HSP 70 (Fig. 1A). However, the expression level of HSP 90 was not significantly changed with GA, which inhibits the function of HSP 90 by binding to the ADP/ATP-binding pocket of the protein. In order to examine the effect of GA on the viability of 3NP-stimulated striatal cells, the cells were treated with 3NP in the absence or presence of GA. Significant striatal cell death was observed with 3NP treatment in MTT and LDH assays (Fig. 2A and B). However, GA significantly attenuated 3NP-induced striatal cell death. In addition, the number of positive cells of 7-AAD and FITC, which indicate dead cells, was significantly reduced with GA in the FACS analysis (Fig. 2Ca and b). In addition, GA significantly reduced the number of 3NP-induced apoptotic nuclei (Fig. 3B). To investigate the effects of GA in 3NP-induced ROS production, the intracellular ROS generation was measured in the absence or presence of GA in 3NP-challenged striatal cells. Treatment of 3NP resulted in the production of a considerable amount of the intracellular ROS in striatal cells. GA significantly attenuated 3NP-induced ROS production, albeit not completely (Fig. 4). Fig. 4A shows a representative confocal image of intracellular level of ROS and Fig. 4B shows quantitative analysis of ROS production. The result demonstrates that GA protects cells by inhibiting the production of ROS in 3NP-challenged striatal cells. GA may be a valuable therapeutic agent to increase the intracellular level of HSP 70, which plays a beneficial role in the pathogenesis of HD (Huntington’s disease).

|In vivo activity:||The in vivo anti-HSV-2 activity of GA was evaluated in the mouse HSV-2 vagina model. In mouse HSV-2 vaginal model, symptoms of illness that were observed in mice after vaginal HSV-2 infection include: puff fur, arched backs, feeble gait, hind limb paralysis, wet fur that was stained by feces in the anus vaginal region, swollen red vulva, hair loss and skin lesions in the anus vaginal region and on the hind limbs, and death. Administration of GA suspension to vagina after HSV-2 infection (1.43, 2.86 and 5.72 mg kg−1, t.i.d. for 7 days) protected the infected mice from death, and increased the average survival days in a dose-dependent manner. The differences were statistically significant when compared with untreated infected controls (Table 2). As shown in Figure 2, GA also significantly reduced the shedding of HSV-2 from mice vagina. Samples of vaginal secretions from all mice in each group were collected individually at 96 h post infection. HSV-2 titers were determined by a cytopathic effect assay. GA 5.72, 2.86 and 1.43 mg kg−1 treatment reduced HSV-2 shedding by 794, 126 and 126 times, as compared with the infected control group, respectively. In summary, GA efficiently inhibits HSV-2 replication in vivo and shows therapeutic effects better than that of ACV.

Geldanamycin was originally discovered in the organism Streptomyces hygroscopicus. It is a macrocyclic polyketide that is synthesized by a Type I polyketide synthase. The genes gelA, gelB, and gelC encode for the polyketide synthase. The PKS is first loaded with 3-amino-5-hydroxybenzoic acid (AHBA). It then utilizes malonyl-CoA, methylmalonyl-CoA, and methoxymalonyl-CoA to synthesize the precursor molecule Progeldanamycin. This precursor is subjected to several enzymatic and non-enzymatic tailoring steps to produce the active molecule Geldanamycin, which include hydroxylation, o-methylation, carbamoylation, and oxidation.
