Apatinib Chemical Structure

CAS No. 811803-05-1

Apatinib (Rivoceranib, YN968D1) is a potent inhibitor of the VEGF signaling pathway with IC50 values of 1 nM, 13 nM, 429 nM and 530 nM for VEGFR-2, Ret (c-Ret), c-Kit and c-Src, respectively. Apatinib induces both autophagy and apoptosis.

Biological Activity

Description Apatinib (Rivoceranib, YN968D1) is a potent inhibitor of the VEGF signaling pathway with IC50 values of 1 nM, 13 nM, 429 nM and 530 nM for VEGFR-2, Ret (c-Ret), c-Kit and c-Src, respectively. Apatinib induces both autophagy and apoptosis.

In vitro

Apatinib (YN968D1) potently suppressed the kinase activities of VEGFR-2, c-kit and c-src, and inhibited cellular phosphorylation of VEGFR-2, c-kit and PDGFRβ. YN968D1 suppress the activities of Ret, c-kit and c-src with an IC50 of 0.013 μM, 0.429 μM and 0.53 μM, respectively. YN968D1 had no significant effects on EGFR, Her-2 or FGFR1 in concentrations up to 10 μM. YN968D1 effectively inhibited proliferation, migration and tube formation of human umbilical vein endothelial cells induced by FBS, and blocked the budding of rat aortic ring[1].

Methods Test Index PMID
Western blot
Beclin 1 / Atg7 / p62 / LC3-I / LC3-II ; 

PubMed: 30301881     

C643 and KHM-5M cells were treated with a serious concentration of apatinib for 24 h. The Beclin 1, ATG7, P62, LC3-II, and GAPDH expressions were detected by western blot.

PI3K / p-PI3K / mTOR / p-mTOR / AKT / p-AKT ; 

PubMed: 30301881     

C643 and KHM-5M cells treated with or without apatinib (20 μM) for 24 h, the expressions of total PI3K, phosphorylated PI3K, total AKT, phosphorylated AKT total mTOR, phosphorylated AKT, and GAPDH detected by western blot. 

p-VEGFR2 / VEGFR2 / p-ERK / ERK ; 

PubMed: 29490645     

Apatinib down-regulates the phosphorylation of VEGFR2 and its downstream signaling pathway in ALL cells. Jurkat (a), Nalm6 (b) cells were treated with 0, 10, 20 and 40 μM Apatinib for 48 h, respectively. The protein level of VEGFR2, p-VEGFR2 and its downstream signaling pathways were examined by western blotting. β-actin and GAPDH was used as a loading control in this experiment.

Cell viability; 

PubMed: 29490645     

Apatinib exhibits a dose- and time-dependent inhibition of proliferation of B and T-lineage ALL cell lines. B-lineage (a, b) and T-lineage ALL cells (c, d) were exposed to indicated concentrations of Apatinib for 48 or 72 h, and cell viability was subsequently determined by a CCK-8 kit.

In vivo In vivo, YN968D1 alone and in combination with chemotherapeutic agents effectively inhibited the growth of several established human tumor xenograft models with little toxicity[1]. 


Cell Research:


- Collapse
  • Cell lines: HUVEC
  • Concentrations: 0.1 and 1 μM
  • Incubation Time: 72 h
  • Method:

    The HUVEC were seeded into 96-well plates. After 24 h of incubation, cells were exposed to the test agents (vehicle as control) together with 20 ng ⁄mL VEGF or 20% FBS for another 72 h. After fixation with 10% trichloroacetic acid, the cells were stained with 0.4% sulforhodamine B for 30 min at 37℃ and then washed with 1% acetic acid. Tris was added to dissolve the complex, and the optical density was measured at 520 nm.
