- Multiple-target suppression for RAS, KRAS signal network (AKT and ERK) and SOS1
- Artificially modified nucleic acid optimized to increase RNase degradation resistance of miR-143
- Anti-tumor activity at low concentration ex.) DLD-1 IC50 : 1.32nM
- Synergetic anti-tumor effect for KRAS mutated cancer by combination therapy with EGFR inhibitor, Cetuximab
Background and Technology
miR-143 is localized on chromosome 5q32, frequently under-expressed in variety of cancer and suggested involvement with cancer as tumor suppressor miRNA. miR-143 has been reported not only silencing total RAS, but also its downstream, effector signal molecules ERK and AKT and expressing synergetic suppressive effect.
Inventors found that miR-143#12 which was originally designed and modified based on the natural human miR-143 showed strong anti-tumor effect. As a background of high activity, it is suggested that miR-143#12 has excellent RNase resistant and remained long-term activity.
The effect of miR-143#12 in vitro has been proved and we demonstrated that human tumor cell line xenografted nude-mouse i.v. administrated miR-143#12 showed a remarkable anti-tumor effect at a low dose in all cases (Colon cancer, Bladder cancer, Gastric cancer, Kidney cancer, Rhabdomyosarcoma). For animal injection, miRNA‐143#12 was loaded in polyionic copolymers (PIC) to deliver miRNA to the tumors, but the delivery system is not limited to PIC.
