SERP Comments:

I strongly recommend performing a dose-response for the cell line in question and instituting an assay for inhibition of PARP1 and/or PARP2 once the concentration of XAV939 has been selected. XAV939 inhibits PARP1 and PARP2 with similar potency to Tankyrase 1 and 2.

SERP Comments:

Portal staff comment: A new publication appeared in December 2016 (PMID 28001384) indicating that XAV939 inhibits multiple PARP family proteins in addition to Tankyrase 1 & 2 (especially PARP1 and PARP2).

SERP Comments:

As the recent publication (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=28001384) shows, this compound is a promiscuous Tankyrase inhibitor and, hence, is not a good tool to probe the role of individual targets.
