Both Ramos lymphoma cells with a Myc translocation and HCT116 colon cancer cells in which Myc is stabilized show sensitivity to Omomyc in a 72-h cell proliferation assay (50% inhibitory concentration [IC50] of 400 nM for Ramos cells and IC50 of 2 to 3 3 M for HCT116 cells) (Fig. demonstrate by both a proximity ligation assay (PLA) and double chromatin immunoprecipitation (ReCHIP) that Omomyc preferentially binds to Maximum, not Myc, to mediate inhibition of MYC-mediated transcription by replacing MYC/Maximum heterodimers with Omomyc/Maximum heterodimers. The formation of Myc/Maximum and Omomyc/Maximum heterodimers occurs cotranslationally; Myc, Maximum, and Omomyc can interact with ribosomes and Maximum RNA under conditions in which ribosomes are intact. Taken together, our data suggest that the mechanism of action of Omomyc is usually to bind DNA as either…
