AG-1478 (Tyrphostin AG-1478, NSC 693255) is a selective EGFR inhibitor with IC50 of 3 nM in cell-free assays, almost no activity on HER2-Neu, PDGFR, Trk, Bcr-Abl and InsR. AG-1478 (Tyrphostin AG-1478) inhibits encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV) and hepatitis c virus (HCV) by targeting phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase IIIα (PI4KA).

|Description||AG-1478 (Tyrphostin AG-1478, NSC 693255) is a selective EGFR inhibitor with IC50 of 3 nM in cell-free assays, almost no activity on HER2-Neu, PDGFR, Trk, Bcr-Abl and InsR. AG-1478 (Tyrphostin AG-1478) inhibits encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV) and hepatitis c virus (HCV) by targeting phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase IIIα (PI4KA).|
AG-1478 is high selective over ErbB2 and PDGFR with IC50 of >100 μM.  AG-1478 preferentially inhibits U87MG cells expressing truncated EGFR with IC50 of 8.7 μM, compared to those expressing endogenous wt EGFR or overexpressing exogenous wt EGFR with IC50 of 34.6 μM and 48.4 μM, respectively, and inhibits the DNA synthesis with IC50 of 4.6 μM, 19.67 μM, and 35.2 μM, respectively. AG-1478 also preferentially inhibits the tyrosine kinase activity and autophosphorylation of the ΔEGFR compared to endogenous or overexpressed exogenous wt EGFR.  AG-1478 (0.25 μM) abolishes the MAPK activation induced by Ang II, a Ca2+ ionophore as well as EGF but not by a phorbol ester or platelet-derived growth factor-BB in the VSMC.  AG-1478 inhibits EGF-induced mitogenesis of the BaF/ERX and LIM1215 cells with IC50 of 0.07 μM and 0.2 μM, respectively.  AG1478 is able to inhibit the function of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters such as ABCB1 and ABCG2, with a more pronounced effect on ABCG2. 
|In vivo||Administration of AG-1478 blocks phosphorylation of the EGFR at the tumor site and inhibits the growth of A431 xenografts that overexpress the WT EGFR and glioma xenografts expressing the de2-7 EGFR. Even subtherapeutic doses of AG-1478 significantly enhance the efficacy of cytotoxic drugs, with the combination of AG-1478 and temozolomide displaying synergistic antitumor activity against human glioma xenografts. The combination of AG-1478 and an anti-EGFR antibody (mAb 806) displays additive and in some cases synergistic, antitumor activity against tumor xenografts overexpressing the EGFR.  The combination of AG-1478 (0.4 mg) with a single dose of 25 μCi 90Y-CHX-A''-DTPA-hu3S193 results in a significant enhancement of efficacy compared with either agent alone. |

1.Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2.Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
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.
