Western blots of EZH2 expression in A549, HCC461, and HCC4006 cells upon treatment with different doses of VEGFR-2-inhibitor AZD2171 (0, 5 and 10 nM). AZD2171 decreased the expression of EZH2 in HCC4006 and HCC461 cells expressing VEGFR-2 in a dose-dependent manner but did not do so in A549 cells lacking expression of VEGFR-2.

Representative histological tumor sections with CD31 vascular staining (brown) and hematoxylin nuclear counterstain (blue) from the 4 treatment groups(untreated, quinacrine, cediranib, ced+quin). Discrete staining is associated with vascular endothelial cells, whereas more diffuse and variable staining is nonspecific and associated with tumor necrosis. Microvessel examples are marked by arrows.

(A) Representative LC3 Western blots obtained from 4C8 cells grown under normoxic (20% O2) or hypoxic (0.5% O2) conditions for 10 h while untreated or exposed to cediranib (3 uM), quinacrine (0.8 uM), or combined cediranib/quinacrine. (B) RFP-LC3-expressing 4C8 cells were visualized using EVOS fl microscopy, grown under hypoxic conditions for 24 h while untreated or exposed to cediranib (2.5 uM), quinacrine (2.5 uM), or combined cediranib/quinacrine. (C) Representative cleaved caspase-3 Western blots obtained from 4C8 cells grown under normoxic (20% O2) or hypoxic (0.5% O2) conditions for 72 h while untreated or exposed to cediranib (2 uM), quinacrine (2 uM), or combined cediranib/quinacrine.

Inhibition of P-gp and Bcrp by cediranib. Accumulation of [3H]vin-blastine in MDR1-transfected cells and [3H]prazosin in Bcrp1-transfected cells in the presence of increasing concentrations of cediranib ranging from 0 to 40 μM is shown.

Ba/F3 cell lines expressing the recombinant TEL/kinase domain fusion protein for FGFR1-4 .Cells were grown in RPMI 1640 containing 10% FBS and 500 ng/mL puromycin. The parental Ba/F3 cell line transduced with an empty vector was grown in 10 ng/mL IL-3 (R & D systems). Cell viability was assessed at 72 hours using the Cell Titer 96 Aqueous One Solution (Promega). Data were plotted as percent viability relative to vehicle-treated cells and are shown as mean (±SD) from 3 experiments.

|Description||Cediranib (AZD2171) is a highly potent VEGFR(KDR) inhibitor with IC50 of <1 nM, also inhibits Flt1/4 with IC50 of 5 nM/≤3 nM, similar activity against c-Kit and PDGFRβ, 36-, 110-fold and >1000-fold selective more for VEGFR than PDGFR-α, CSF-1R and Flt3 in HUVEC cells. Phase 3.|
Cediranib inhibits VEGF-stimulated proliferation with IC50 of 0.4 nM. Cediranib suppresses PDGF-AA with IC50 of 0.04 μM in MG63 cell lines. Cediranib has been shown to block Flt1-associated kinase with IC50 of 5 nM and VEGF-C and VEGF-D receptor Flt-4 with IC50 less than 3 nM. In addition, the IC50 values for inhibition of c-Kit and PDGFRβ tyrosine kinase are 2 nM and 5 nM respectively. Furthermore, no inhibition of enzyme activity is observed when 10 μM Cediranib is assayed with 100 μM ATP against AMPK, Chk1 Akt/PKB and others. Micromolar concentrations of Cediranib are needed to prevent tumor cell proliferation in vitro. 
|In vivo||Cediranib even suppresses tubule sprouting at subnanomolar concentrations and inhibits VEGF-induced angiogenesis. Cediranib causes hypertrophy in bone growth plate and prevents luteal development in ovary. These are physiological processes that are dependent upon angiogenesis. Cediranib shows broad spectrum activity in human tumor models at doses that are well tolerated.  Besides, Cediranib causes regression of vascular tissues in human lung tumor xenografts. |
Kinase inhibition:Cediranib is dissolved in DMSO at a concentration of 10 mM. All enzyme assays are run at, or just below, the respective Km for ATP (0.2 - 30 μM). The inhibitory activity of Cediranib is determined against a range of recombinant tyrosine kinases [KDR, Flt-1, Flt-4, c-Kit, PDGFRα, PDGFRβ, CSF-1R, Flt-3, FGFR1, Src, Abl, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), ErbB2, Aurora A, and Aurora B] using ELISA. Selectivity versus CDK2 and CDK4 serine/threonine kinases is examined using scintillation proximity assays with a retinoblastoma substrate and [γ-sup>33P]ATP. Activity of Cediranib is compared to MAPK kinase (MEK), which shows dual specificity. It is determined using a MAPK substrate, [γ-33P]ATP, and paper capture/scintillation counting.

* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
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)
*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).
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 )
* 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.
