Description: LGK974, also known as WNT974, is a selective and orally bioavailable porcupine (PORCN) inhibitor under development for the treatment of cancers that are driven by the Wnt pathway in a Wnt ligand-dependent manner. WNT974 binds to and inhibits PORCN in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), which blocks post-translational acylation of Wnt ligands and inhibits their secretion. This prevents the activation of Wnt ligands, interferes with Wnt-mediated signaling, and inhibits cell growth in Wnt-driven tumors. Porcupine, a membrane-bound O-acyltransferase (MBOAT), is required for the palmitoylation of Wnt ligands, and plays a key role in Wnt ligand secretion and activity. Wnt signaling is dysregulated in a variety of cancers.

Biological target: LGK-974 (NVP-LGK974, WNT974) is a potent and specific PORCN inhibitor, and inhibits Wnt signaling with IC50 of 0.4 nM in TM3 cells.
In vitro activity: Medicinal chemistry optimization of GNF-1331 was carried out to improve potency and pharmacokinetic properties. This effort led to the discovery of LGK974 (Fig. 1B), a highly specific and potent PORCN inhibitor. LGK974 effectively displaced [3H]-GNF-1331 with an IC50 of 1 nM in the PORCN radioligand binding assay (Fig. 1C and Fig. S1B). LGK974 also potently inhibited Wnt signaling in the aforementioned Wnt coculture assay with an IC50 of 0.4 nM (Fig. 1D). This inhibitory effect was rescued by the addition of exogenous Wnt3A CM (Fig. 1E). Additionally, LGK974 showed no major cytotoxicity in cells up to 20 µM (Fig. S1C). To further confirm the activity of LGK974 in blocking PORCN-dependent Wnt secretion, 293A cells were transfected with HA-tagged Wnt3A and treated with various doses of LGK974. As shown in Fig. 1F and Fig. S1D, LGK974 potently decreased levels of HA-Wnt3A in the supernatant with slightly increased levels of HA-Wnt3A in the cell lysate, suggesting that Wnt3A secretion was substantially inhibited by LGK974 in a dose-dependent manner. In Wnt-responsive cells, secreted Wnts cause phosphorylation of the Wnt coreceptor LRP6. In L-Wnt3A cells, a mouse cell line overexpressing Wnt3A, LGK974, strongly blocked Wnt-dependent phosphorylation of LRP6 (Fig. S1E).

In vivo activity: In a murine MMTV-Wnt1 tumor model using s.c. implanted tumor fragments derived from MMTV-Wnt1 transgenic mice, LGK974 exhibited strong dose-dependent efficacy when administered daily (Fig. 2A). Briefly, changes in tumor volume for each of the treated (T) and control (C) groups were measured and used to calculate growth delay as expressed by the T/C ratio. A dose of 0.3 mg/kg LGK974 led to tumor growth delay (T/C: 26%), whereas a dose of 1 or 3 mg/kg induced very significant tumor regression (T/C: −47% or −63%, respectively) on day 13 of treatment. As shown in Fig. S2A, the regimen was well-tolerated without significant body weight loss in the mice. Similar efficacy was observed with LGK974 in a murine MMTV-Wnt3 model (Fig. S2B).
