Immunofluorescence microscopy (1000x magnification) with p65 (red fluorescence, Cy3) revealed a cytoplasmic retention of p65 after VS-6063 treatment in HBl-2 and MINO (D).

c, d MEL-JUSO cells were pre-treated with Defactinib (5 µM); e, f WM1205-LU cells were pre-treated with either inhibitor or a combination of both. Subsequently, cells were treated with trametinib (10 nM) and phosphorylation of key kinases, as well as cell viability were determined (48 h) using multiplex ELISA and resazurin reduction assay, respectively. Data show averaged median fluorescence intensity (MFI) for each protein (means ± S.D. from n = 3 independent experiments) and or cell viability relative to control values of 100% (means + S.E.M. from n = 3 independent experiments). Statistical analysis was performed using two-way ANOVA with post-hoc Tukey test

(C) D2.A1 cells were pretreated for 18 hours with the indicated concentration of Defactinib. (D) D2.A1 cells were pretreated for 10 minutes with indicated concentrations of Defactinib. cells were serum starved for 18 hours with or without inhibitor pretreatment and cells were subsequently stimulated with FGF2 (20ng/ml) for 30 minutes and analyzed by immunoblot for downstream phosphorylation of Erk1/2. Expression of total Erk1/2 was analyzed as a loading control.

|Description||Defactinib (VS-6063, PF-04554878) is a selective, and orally active FAK inhibitor. Phase 2.|
In taxane-sensitive (SKOV3ip1) and taxane-resistant (SKOV3-TR) cell lines, VS-6063 significantly inhibits pFAK (Tyr397) expression. The combination of VS-6063 and paclitaxel synergistically decreases proliferation and increases apoptosis in SKOV3ip1, SKOV3-TR, HeyA8 and HeyA8-MDR cells.  The combination of VS-6063 and Y15 synergistically decreases viability, clonogenicity, and cell attachment in thyroid cancer cell lines. 
|In vivo||In both PTX-sensitive and PTX-resistant models, VS-6063 (50 mg/kg p.o.) enhances tumor growth inhibition by paclitaxel. |
|In vitro||DMSO||5 mg/mL warmed (9.79 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 80+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.
