Biological Activity

Description NVP-BVU972 is a selective and potent Met (c-Met) inhibitor with IC50 of 14 nM.
Met [1]
14 nM
In vitro

NVP-BVU972 potently inhibits MET kinase but displays low inhibition against other kinases including the most closely related kinase RON with IC50 values of more than 1000 nM. NVP-BVU972 also suppresses constitutive MET phosphorylation in GTL-16 cells or HGF-stimulated MET phosphorylation in A549 cells with IC50 values of 7.3 nM and 22 nM, respectively. NVP-BVU972 potently prevents the growth of the MET gene amplified cell lines GTL-16, MKN-45 and EBC-1 with IC50 values of 66 nM, 82 nM and 32 nM, respectively. In line with their high frequency in the NVP-BVU972 screen, Y1230 and D1228 mutations give rise to dramatic shifts in the measured IC50 values for NVP-BVU972 in BaF3 cell line. Resistance triggered by V1155L is more limited to NVP-BVU972. A dose-dependent reduction in TPR-MET phosphorylation when applying NVP-BVU972 to BaF3 cells expressing wild-type TPR-MET. Both Y1230H and D1228A mutations abrogated the effect of NVP-BVU972 but not AMG 458. However, F1200I and L1195V interferes with the potency of NVP-BVU972 to prevent TPR-MET phosphorylation.[1]

TR-FRET biochemical assay with MET wild type and mutants:

Enzyme activity is measured in a time resolved fluorescence resonance energy transfer (TR-FRET) assay, detecting tyrosine phosphorylation with a Eu-labelled anti-phospho-tyrosine antibody (fluorescence donor) and Allophycocyanin conjugated to Streptavidin (fluorescence acceptor) which binds to a biotin on the substrate peptide. For each variant, Km concentrations for ATP are determined in the absence of NVP-BVU972, and the ATP concentration in the kinase reaction is set to Km (4 μM for MET wt, 1 μM for MET Y1230H and MET F1200I). NVP-BVU972 is dissolved and diluted in DMSO and assayed in quadruplicate. Kinase reactions are carried out in 50 mM Tris-HCl pH 7.5, 8 mM MgCl2, 4 mM MnCl2, 0.05 % Tween 20, 0.05% bovine serum albumin, 0.1 mM EDTA, 1 mM DTT, 0.1 mM Na3VO4, in white 1536 well plates at room temperature. NVP-BVU972 and enzyme are incubated in a volume of 2 μL for 20 min, followed by the addition of 1 μL ATP and 1 μL biotinylated peptide substrate (PTK1) to final concentrations of Km and 1 μM, respectively. Enzyme concentrations in the reactions are 5 nM for MET wt, and 4 nM for the F1200I and Y1230H variants. After 90 min, reactions are stopped by addition of 1 μL stop/detection solution to reach final concentrations of 10 mM EDTA, 3.5 nM Eu-labelled antiphospho-tyrosine antibody PY20, and 10 nM Streptavidin Allophycocyanin. Time resolved fluorescence resonance energy transfer is measured in an Envision plate reader (excitation 320 nm, emission 615 nm and 665 nm).

  • Cell lines: BaF3 cells
  • Concentrations: 0.6-9.6 μM
  • Incubation Time: 72 hours
  • Method: BaF3 cells containing TPR-MET or various mutants thereof are grown in RPMI 1640 medium containing 10% fetal calf serum. For maintenance of parental BaF3 cells the medium is additionally supplemented with 10 ng/mL interleukin-3 (IL-3). For proliferation assays, BaF3 cells are seeded on 96-well-plates in triplicates at 104 cells per well and incubated with various concentrations of NVP-BVU972 for 72 hours followed by quantification of viable cells using a resazurin sodium salt dye reduction readout. IC50 values are determined with the XLFit Excel Add-In using a 4-parameter dose response model.

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.
