Cediranib (AZD2171) Chemical Structure

Molecular Weight(MW): 450.51

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.

Biological Activity

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.

PDGFRβ [1]
0.5 nM 2 nM <=3 nM 5 nM 5 nM
In vitro

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. [1]

Hep-1 hepatocellular carcinoma cells pretreated with or without cediranib (100 nmol/L), were left untreated (SF; lanes 1, 6), or were stimulated with 10% FBS (lanes 2, 7), 10 ng VEGF-A (lanes 3, 8), 50 ng VEGF-B (lanes 4, 9), or 50 ng VEGF-C (lanes 5, 10) for 10 min. Immunoblotting was done on 50 µg of total cell lysate per well and probed with the appropriate phospho-specific (p) antibody. Experiments were done in triplicate.

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. [1] Besides, Cediranib causes regression of vascular tissues in human lung tumor xenografts. [2]


Kinase Assay:[1]
- Collapse

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.
Cell Research:[1]
- Collapse
  • Cell lines: HUVEC cell line
  • Concentrations: 10 μM
  • Incubation Time: 72 hours
  • Method: The proliferation of the HUVEC cell line is evaluated in the presence and absence of growth factors by measuring 3H-thymidine incorporation following a 4-day incubation period. Proliferation of MG63 osteosarcoma cells is induced by PDGF-AA, which selectively activates signaling of the PDGFRα homodimer. HUVEC and MG63 osteosarcoma cells are cultured in DMEM without phenol red containing 1% charcoal stripped FCS, 2 mM glutamine, and 1% nonessential amino acids for 24 hours. Cediranib or vehicle is added with PDGF-AA ligand (50 ng/mL) and plates incubated for another 72 hours. Cellular proliferation is determined using bromodeoxyuridine ELISA.

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.
