Bestatin Usage And Synthesis
Bestatin is an aminopeptidase inhibitor originally isolated from S. olivoreticuli. It inhibits aminopeptidase B (IC50 = 0.05 μg/ml), aminopeptidase N (IC50 = 16.9 μM), leucine aminopeptidase (IC50 = 0.01 μg/ml), and the aminopeptidase activity of leukotriene A4 (LTA4) hydrolase (Kapp = 172 nM). It is selective for these aminopeptidases over aminopeptidase A, trypsin, chymotrypsin, elastase, papain, pepsin, and thermolysin. Bestatin inhibits the production of LTB4 in erythrocytes when used at a concentration of 70 μM. It increases the expression of Akt, inhibits proliferation, migration, and invasion, and induces autophagy and apoptosis in 5637 bladder cancer cells. Bestatin (5 and 15 mg/kg) decreases serum levels of LTB4 and reduces tumor growth in a patient-derived xenograft (PDX) mouse model of colorectal cancer.

Ubenimex (also known as bestatin) is a competitive aminopeptidase B inhibitor with an IC50 of 100 mg/ml for K562 cells. Proliferation of all the cell lines except KG1 was inhibited by bestatin. P39/TSU, HL60 and U937 were highly sensitive, with 50% growth inhibitory concentration. It is useful in the treatment of non-lymphocytic leukemia. In other types of cancers ubenimex added to radiotherapy or chemotherapy following surgery significantly inmases survival time through immunopotentiation. It is being studied for use in the treatment of acute myelocytic leukemia.
Bestatin is "pseudo"-dipeptide isolated from Strepotmyces olivreticuli in 1976. Bestatin is a potent aminopeptidase B inhibitor with no carboxypeptidase activity. Bestatin acts as an immunomodulator by activating macrophages and T lymphocytes. Bestatin also exhibits good antitumour activity and is has been investigated in clinical trials.
Bestatin can indirectly act on monocytes by inhibiting Aminopeptidase B, which in turn inhibits the catabolism of tuftsin. Bestatin has also been shown to inhibit Leukotriene A4 hydrolase. It can directly stimulate lymphocytes through its fixation on the cell surface. The agent has been used in multiple leukemia studies. Bestatin is an aminopeptidase inhibitor, inhibits enkephalin metabolism and leukotriene A4 hydrolase. Inhibits tumor cell proliferation.
Aminopeptidase inhibitor (K i = 0.001-90 mM); inhibits enkephalin metabolism and leukotriene A 4 hydrolase. Inhibits tumor cell proliferation.

Clinical claims and research
Bestatin (ubenimex) is a potent inhibitor of aminopeptidase N and aminopeptidase B, which was isolated from a culture filtrate of Streptomyces olivoreticuli during the search for specific inhibitors of enzymes present on the membrane of eukaryotic cells. Inhibitors of aminopeptidase activity are associated with macrophage activation and differentiation, and Bestatin has shown significant therapeutic effects in several clinical trials. In one multi-institutional study, patients with acute non-lymphocytic leukemia (ANLL) were randomized to receive either Bestatin or control orally after completion of induction and consolidation therapy, and concomitant with maintenance chemotherapy. Remission duration was prolonged in the Bestatin group, although this difference did not reach statistical significance. However, OS was prolonged in the Bestatin group. Recently, a confirmatory phase III trial in ANLL was reported that extended the observation to a significant prolongation of remission. Bestatin has also shown adjuvant activity when administered to acute leukemia and CML patients who did not develop graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) within 30 days following BMT. Bestatin-treated acute leukemia patients had an increased incidence of chronic low-grade GVHD compared with the control arm and a lower relapse rate. Recently, a phase III study of resected stage 1 squamous cell lung cancer patients treated orally with either Bestatin or placebo daily for 2 years revealed that 5-year cancer-free survival was significantly greater in the Bestatin group (71%) as compared to the placebo group (62%). OS was also significantly improved, as was cancer-free survival. Recent studies in patients with nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLCs) suggest that it also has anti-angiogenic activity.
Mode of action
Bestatin acts as an immunomodulator by activating macrophages and T lymphocytes.
