Biological Activity

Description CC-90003 is an irreversible inhibitor of ERK1/2 with IC50s in the 10-20 nM range and shows good kinase selectivity in a 258-kinase biochemical assay.
ERK1 [1]
ERK2 [1]
In vitro

In biochemical, cellular, and mass spectrometry assays of 347 kinases, CC-90003 was found to strongly inhibit kinase activities of ERK1 and ERK2 with IC50s in the 10 to 20 nmol/L range and had good kinase selectivity. In a 258-kinase biochemical assay panel, significant inhibition of 213 kinases (<50% inhibition), moderate inhibition of 28 kinases (50%–80% inhibition), and >80% inhibition of 17 kinases by CC-90003 were found. In an ActivX cellular kinase screening using A375 BRAF V600E-mutant melanoma cell line, only 5 of 194 kinases (ERK1, ERK2, MKK4, MKK6, and FAK) were inhibited by >80% at 1 mmol/L of CC-90003. At the same concentration, no significant inhibition (<14%) was found in a Cerep panel of 40 nonkinase enzymes and receptors. Through our iterative analyses, only 3 kinases, in addition to ERK1/2, were inhibited in cells at biologically relevant concentrations: KDR, FLT3, and PDGFRa. Tumors with BRAF mutations were particularly sensitive to CC-90003. In many, but not all cases, CC-90003 had cytotoxic effects in KRAS-mutant PDAC, lung cancer, and colorectal cancer cell lines. CC-90003 does not significantly inhibit proliferation of normal lung fibroblasts or bronchial epithelial cells[1].

In vivo

In in vivo studies of an HCT-116 xenograft model, CC-90003 was well tolerated at a range of doses (12.5 mg b.i.d.-100 mg qd), although doses of 50 mpk b.i.d. and 75 mpk b.i.d. group caused mortality by days 6 to 18 of study. Both dosing schedules (qd and b.i.d.) leads to tumor growth inhibition. CC-90003 inhibits tumor growth in vivo of three KRAS-mutant PDX models[1].


Cell Research:


- Collapse
  • Cell lines: KRAS-mutant cell lines
  • Concentrations: --
  • Incubation Time: 72 h
  • Method:

    The cells were plated at a density of 3,000 cells/well in 90 mL of growth media on 96-well clear bottom black-well plates and incubated with overnight under standard cell culture growth conditions at 37 C with 5% CO2. The followinging day, one plate for each cell line was used for "Day 0" cell growth control readout, whereas others were treated with 9-point3-fold dilutions of one compound or combination of compounds, and a DMSO control. Each concentration was tested in triplicate. Cell viability was measured 72 hours later.

*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).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

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 )

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.
