Description: ZZW-115 is a potent NUPR1 inhibitor. ZZW-115 induces ferroptosis in a mitochondria-dependent manner. ZZW-115 induces ROS accumulation followed by a ferroptotic cell death, which could be prevented by ferrostatin-1 (Fer-1) and ROS-scavenging agents. In addition, ZZW-115-treatment increases the accumulation of hydroperoxided lipids in these cells. ZZW-115-induced mitochondrial morphological changes, compatible with the ferroptotic process, as well as mitochondrial network disorganization and strong mitochondrial metabolic dysfunction, which are rescued by both Fer-1 and N-acetylcysteine (NAC). Of note, the expression of TFAM, a key regulator of mitochondrial biogenesis, is downregulated by ZZW-115.
