  • For MTT assays, cells (2,000 ~ 5,000 cells/well) were subcultured into 96-well plates according to their growth properties. Cell proliferation was assayed at 72 hr after treatment of Brivanib by adding 20 μl of 5 mg/ml 3-(4,5-Dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) solution per 100 μl of growth medium. After incubating for 3-4 h at 37°C, the media were removed and 150 µl/well of MTT solvent (either absolute DMSO or isopropanol containing 4 μM HCl and 0.1% Nonidet-40) was added to dissolve the formazan. The absorbance of each well was measured by ELx808 (BioTek, Winooski, VT) or Wallac Victor2 (Perkin-Elmer Life Sciences, Boston, MA) Microplate Reader. Viable cells are presented as percent of control, vehicle-treated cells.



    Dr. Yong-Weon Yi from Georgetown University Medical Center.. Brivanib (BMS-540215) purchased from Selleck.

    Alofanib inhibits fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF2)-induced proliferation of human and mouse endothelial cells. Dose-response effect of alofanib was evaluated in HUVEC endothelial cells in comparison with brivanib. Cells were treated with different concentrations of alofanib, brivanib for 6 h followed by stimulation with 25 ng/ml FGF2. Cell growth inhibition were assessed.

Biological Activity

Description Brivanib is an ATP-competitive inhibitor against VEGFR2 with IC50 of 25 nM, moderate potency against VEGFR-1 and FGFR-1, but >240-fold against PDGFR-β. Phase 3.
VEGFR2 [1] Flk1 [1] FGFR1 [1] VEGFR1 [1]
25 nM 89 nM 148 nM 380 nM
In vitro

Brivanib also inhibits VEGFR1 and FGFR-1 with IC50 of 0.38 μM and 0.148 μM. Brivanib is not sensitive to PDGFRβ, EGFR, LCK, PKCα or JAK-3 with IC50 all above 1900 nM. Brivanib could inhibit the proliferation of VEGF-stimulated HUVECs with IC50 of 40 nM, compared to 276 nM in FGF-stimulated HUVECs. On the other hand, Brivanib exhibits low activity to tumor cell lines. [1]

In vivo Brivanib displays antitumor activities in H3396 xenograft in athymic mice. At a dose of 60 and 90 mg/kg (p.o.), Brivanib completely inhibits the tumor growth, with TGI of 85% and 97%, respectively. [1] Moreover, Brivanib significantly suppresses tumor growth in Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) xenografts, which due to the decrease in phosphorylation of VEGFR2. The results show that the tumor weights in 06-0606 xenograft mice are 55% and 13%, compared with the controls at a dose of 50 mg/kg and 100 mg/kg. Brivanib is suggested to be efficient in treatment of HCC. [2]


Kinase Assay:[1]

In Vitro Kinase Assays:

Recombinant proteins containing tyrosine kinases are expressed as GST fusion proteins using baculovirus expression vector system in Sf9 cells. All enzymes are stored at -80 °C. Brivanib is dissolved in DMSO and diluted by water/10% DMSO. The VEGFR2 kinase solution is composed by 8 ng GST-VEGFR2 enzyme, 75 μg/mL substrate, 1 μM ATP, and 0.04 μCi [γ-33P]-ATP in 50 μL buffer: 20 mM Tris (pH 7.0), 25 μg/mL BSA, 1.5 mM MnCl2, 0.5 mM dithiothreitol). Flk-1 kinase solution is composed by 10 ng GST-Flk-1 enzyme, 75 μg/mL substrate, 1 μM ATP, and 0.04 μCi [γ-33P]-ATP in 50 μL buffer: 20 mM Tris, pH 7.0, 25 μg/mL BSA, 4 mM MnCl2, 0.5 mM dithiothreitol). The reactions are incubated for 1 hour at 27 °C and terminated with cold trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to a final concentration of 15%. These TCA precipitates are collected onto unifilter plates and quantitated by liquid scintillation counter.
Cell Research:[1]

  • Cell lines: VEGF or FGF stimulated HUVECs
  • Concentrations: ~ 10 μM
  • Incubation Time: 48 hours
  • Method: The cells are stimulated by VEGF or FGF at a concentration of 8 or 80 ng/mL. These cells are seeded in 96 well plates at a density of 2 × 103 and incubated for 24 hours. Brivanib at various dilutions are added to the cells for another 48 hours. Then 0.5 μCi of [3H] thymidine is added for 24 hours. After that the incorporated tritium is quantified using a β-counter.
