FR 180204

Catalog No.S7524

For research use only.

FR 180204 is an ATP-competitive, selective ERK inhibitor with Ki of 0.31 μM and 0.14 μM for ERK1 And ERK2, respectively. It is 30-fold less potent against the related kinase p38α and failed to inhibit any kinases(MEK1, MKK4, IKKα, PKCα, Src, Syc, and PDGFα) at less than 30 μM.

In AP-1-transfected cells, FR180204 dose-dependently inhibits AP-1 transactivation with IC50 of 3.1 μM. [1] FR 180204 inhibits spontaneous mesothelioma cell growth. [3]

In vivo In collagen-induced arthritis mice, FR180204 (100 mg/kg, i.p., b.i.d.) significantly decreases the severity of symptoms and body weight loss. [2] In a mouse model of dengue virus (DENV) infection, FR180204 limits hepatocyte apoptosis, reduces DENV-induced liver injury, and improves Clinical parameters. [4]

Protocol (from reference)

Kinase Assay:

[1]

  • ERK assay:

    Nunc-Immuno MaxiSorp plates are coated with 20 μg/ml MBP solution in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS). After washing with PBS containing 0.05% Tween 20 (T-PBS), blocking buffer (T-PBS containing 3% BSA) is added to each well and the plates are incubated for 10 min at room temperature. After washing with T-PBS, chemical compounds, ATP and recombinant ERK2 diluted in assay dilution buffer (20 mM Mops, pH 7.2, 25 mM β-glycerol phosphate, 5 mM EGTA, 1 mM sodium orthovanadate, 1 mM dithiothreitol, and 50 μg/ml BSA) and are added to each well. Vehicle groups (containing 0.1% DMSO) and kinase-withdrawal groups are used for the control and basal determinations. After incubation for 1 h at room temperature, plates are washed twice with T-PBS. Anti-phospho MBP antibody (0.2 μg/ml) is added to each well, and the plates are incubated for 1 h at room temperature. After washing, anti-mouse HRP-conjugated polyclonal antibodies are added and the plates were incubated for 30 min. SuperSignal chemiluminescent substrate is used for the measurement of HRP activity according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Prism 4.0 software is used for the Lineweaver–Burk plot analysis, IC50 and Ki determinations.

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 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.
