|Description||Vactosertib (TEW-7197, EW-7197) is a highly potent, selective, and orally bioavailable TGF-β receptor ALK4/ALK5 inhibitor with IC50 of 13 nM and 11 nM, respectively. Phase 1.|
In HaCaT (3TP-luc) and 4T1 (3TP-luc) stable cells, 12b potently inhibits the TGF-β1-induced luciferase reporter activity with IC50 of 16.5 and 12.1 nM, respectively.  EW-7197 inhibits TGFβ-induced Smad2 or Smad3 phosphorylation and the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in TGFβ-treated breast cancer cells. In addition, EW-7197 also abrogates TGFβ1-induced tumor cell migration and invasion in breast cells. 
|In vivo||In rats, EW-7197 shows an oral bioavailability of 51% with high systemic exposure (AUC) of 1426 ng×h/mL and maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) of 1620 ng/mL. EW-7197 also shows low toxicity on the cardiovascular system, central nervous system, and respiratory system.  In a mouse B16 melanoma model, EW-7197 (2.5 mg/kg daily p.o.) suppresses the progression of melanoma with enhanced cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) responses.  EW-7197 enhances cytotoxic T lymphocyte activity in 4T1 orthotopic-grafted mice and increased the survival time of 4T1-Luc and 4T1 breast tumor-bearing mice. |

|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
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.
