Chemical structure

Golgicide A


Cell experiment [1]:

Cell lines

The human hepatoma cell line Huh7 (Huh7.5 cells were electroporated with the J6/JFH1 RNA and were transfected with an NS5A-encoding plasmid.)

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is >13mg/mL. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37℃ for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. Stock solution can be stored below -20℃ for several months.

Reacting condition

10μM for 4, 24, and 48 h.


Treatment of cells with golgicide A, a drug that specifically inhibits GBF1, had been shown to decrease HCV (hepatitis C virus) RNA replication. Thus, golgicide A treatments diminished Arf1 (ADP-ribosylation factor 1) and HCV RNA levels in the JFH1-HCVcc cell system. In J6/JFH1 cells, some of the viral NS proteins migrated from speckle-like organelles to the peripheries of LDs in response to Arf1 inhibition by golgicide A treatment. Golgicide A treatments also decreased HCV RNA levels and cause redistribution of NS5A (a nonstructural protein) and accumulation of infectious viral particles.

Golgicide A is a potent, reversible and highly specific GBF1 inhibitor.
GBF1, the ArfGEF responsible for Arf1 activation and COPI recruitment to cis-Golgi membranes, plays an important role in coordinating bidirectional transport and maintaining structural integrity of the Golgi [1].
Golgicide A inhibits the effect of shiga toxin on protein synthesis with an IC50 of 3.3 μM in Vero cells. Immunofluoresence experiments demonstrates that Golgicide A causes complete dispersal of the medial-Golgi markers giantin and the cis-Golgi marker GM130 and results in a rapid redistribution of COPI from the Golgi. Also, Golgicide A causes a decrease in GBF1-mediated Arf1 activation, impairs retrograde toxin transport and arrests secretion of soluble and membrane-anchored proteins [1]. Golgicide A decreases HCV RNA levels and causes redistribution of NS5A in FLRP1 cells and J6/JFH1 cells. In addition, Golgicide A causes accumulation of infectious viral particles in J6/JFH1 cells [2].
