|Description||Cediranib (AZD2171, NSC-732208) 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. Cediranib (AZD2171) induces autophagic vacuole accumulation. 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.
|In vitro||DMSO||90 mg/mL (199.77 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
5% DMSO+50% PEG 300+5% Tween+ddH2O
For best results, use promptly after mixing.
* 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 (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × 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.
