  • AZD6244 enhanced FOXO3a expression and induced suppression of cancer cell proliferation. A, tumor volume of the HCT116 xenografts treated with Placebo or AZD6244 was measured for 21 d. The tumor sections of four individual DMSO or AZD6244-treated HCT116 xenografts were subjected to immunohistochemistry with a FOXO3a antibody. Relative percentages of nuclear FOXO3a expression of individual xenograft tumors from B were analyzed and the mean values of FOXO3a expression in Placebo or AZD6244-treated group were indicated as bars.

  • INA-6 MM cells were treated with AS703026 or AZD6244 for 2 d, followed by [3H]thymidine uptake assay. PBMCs isolated from normal donors (n = 3) were incubated with M-CSF and RANKL, in the presence or absence of AS703026 or AZD6244 for 14 d. The TRAP assay was performed to measure the formation of multinuclear osteoclast cells (OC).

Biological Activity

Description Selumetinib (AZD6244) is a potent, highly selective MEK1 inhibitor with IC50 of 14 nM in cell-free assays, also inhibits ERK1/2 phosphorylation with IC50 of 10 nM, no inhibition to p38α, MKK6, EGFR, ErbB2, ERK2, B-Raf, etc. Phase 3.
Features First MEK inhibitor being tested in Phase II clinical trials.
MEK1 [1]
(Cell-free assay)
14 nM
In vitro

AZD6244 is not competitive with ATP and inactivates the ERK1/2 phosphorylation with IC50 concentrations below 40 nM. AZD6244 also inhibits the growth of primary HCC cells through inhibition of ERK1/2 and p90RSK phosphorylation, accompanied with elevation of the cleavage of caspase-3 and caspase-7, and cleaved poly(ADP)ribose polymerase. AZD6244 has little effects on the p38, c-Jun-NH2-kinase, phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase, and MEK5/ERK5 pathways. [1] AZD6244 is sensitive to Raf mutations in breast cancer cell lines and Ras mutations in NSCLC cell lines. [2]

In vivo AZD6244 significantly inhibits phosphorylation of ERK1/2 in 2-1318, 5-1318, 26-1004 and 4-1318 xenografts and induces apoptosis in primary 2-1318 cells by activating the caspase pathway. [1] AZD6244 could inhibit the tumor growth in HT-29 xenograft, which is a colorectal tumor model carrying a B-Raf mutation, at a dose of 100 mg/kg and the tumor growth inhibition of AZD6244 is better than it of Gemcitabine. [3] Otherwise AZD6244 could inhibit HCC xenografts tumor growth, which associated with increased apoptosis and down-regulation of cell cycle regulators, including cyclin D1, Cdc-2, CDK2 and 4, cyclin B1, and c-Myc.

Assay of MEK Kinase Activity:

Anti-MEK1 antibody is used to immunoprecipitate MEK1 molecules. MEK kinase activity is measured as the ability of immuno-isolated MEK1 to activate recombinant ERK1 in a coupled assay using MBP as the end point of the assay. Phosphorylated MBP is resolved on a 14% SDS-PAGE gel and vacuum-dried before exposure to X-ray film.

  • Cell lines: Primary HCC cell lines including 2-1318, 4-1318 and 26-1004 cells
  • Concentrations: ~ 10 μM
  • Incubation Time: 24 or 48 hours
  • Method:

    Cells are seeded at a density of 2.0 × 104. After 48 hours incubation, the cells are rinsed twice with culture media. Cells are treated with various concentrations of AZD6244 for 24 or 48 hours. Cell viability is determined by the 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2y1)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay. Cell proliferation is assayed using a bromodeoxyuridine kit.

Solubility (25°C)

In vitro DMSO 91 mg/mL warmed (198.82 mM)
Water <1 mg/mL

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:

Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:

Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)

This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )

  • C1

* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:

Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
