  • Whole cell lysates from NRAS- or BRAF-mutant melanoma cells treated with encorafenib or/and binimetinib or DMSO as a control for 24 h were subjected to Western blot analysis to detect pERK, ERK and β-Actin. Experiment shown is a representative of three independent experiments.

    (E) A375 and G361 cells were transfected with GFP-mRFP-LC3 for 24 h, then they were treated the same as in (D) for 4 and 24 h. Images were taken with a confocal microscope.

Biological Activity

Description Encorafenib (LGX818) is a highly potent RAF inhibitor with selective anti-proliferative and apoptotic activity in cells expressing B-RAF(V600E) with EC50 of 4 nM. Phase 3.
Features Orally bioavailable RAF-selective inhibitor.
B-Raf (V600E) [1]
In vitro

In the A375 (BRAFV600E) human melanoma cell line LGX818 suppresses phospho-ERK (EC50 = 3 nM) leading to potent inhibition of proliferation (EC50 = 4 nM). No significant activity is observed against a panel of 100 kinases (IC50 > 900 nM) and LGX818 does not inhibit proliferation of > 400 cell lines expressing wild-type BRAF. Contributing to the high potency of LGX818 is the extremely slow off-rate from BRAFV600E which is not observed with other RAF inhibitors. In biochemical assays the dissociation half-life is >24 hours which translated into sustained target inhibition in cells following drug wash-out. [1]

In vivo LGX818 treatment at oral doses as low as 6 mg/kg resulted in strong (75%) and sustained (>24 hours) decrease in phospho-MEK, even following clearance of drug from circulation in single dose PK/PD studies in human melanoma xenograft models (BRAFV600E). LGX818 induces tumor regression in multiple BRAF mutant human tumor xenograft models grown in immune compromised mice and rats at doses as low as 1 mg/kg. Consistent with the in vitro data, LGX818 is inactive against BRAF wild-type tumors at doses up to 300 mg/kg bid, with good tolerability and linear increase in exposure. Efficacy is also achieved in a more disease-relevant spontaneous metastatic melanoma and a model of melanoma brain metastasis. LGX818 is a potent and selective RAF kinase inhibitor with unique biochemical properties that contribute to an excellent pharmacological profile. [1]

*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.
