- More than 700 labs worldwide have purchased Sorafenib from LC Labs (either directly from us or from our many distributors, many of whom resell under their own labels).
- Sorafenib (Bay 43-9006) is a novel bi-aryl urea compound that inhibits cell proliferation by targeting the ERK pathway and angiogenesis by targeting the receptor tyrosine kinases VEGFR-2 and PDGFR-β and their associated signaling cascades. Although sorafenib was initially developed as a Raf kinase inhibitor (IC50 = 6 nM), it has since been shown to have activity against many receptor tyrosine kinases involved in tumorigenesis and angiogenesis including FGFR-1, wt BRAF and V599E mutant BRAF, as well as members of the so-called "split kinase" family: VEGFR-2, VEGFR-3, PDGFR-β, c-KIT, and Flt3. However, sorafenib is not active against erbB1, erbB2, ERK-1, MEK-1, EGFR, HER-2, IGFR-1, c-MET, c-yes, PKB, PKA, cdk1/cyclinB, PKC, and pim-1. In cellular mechanistic assays, sorafenib decreased basal phosphorylation of the ERK pathway in melanoma, breast, colon, and pancreatic tumor cell lines. Wilhelm, S.M., et al.

- Sorafenib is more potent in a cellular system (IC50 = 20 nM) than in an enzyme assay (IC50 = 107 nM). Guo, J., et al.

- Sorafenib potently inhibited activation of the MAPK pathway and ERK phosphorylation in human cancer cell lines, irrespective of whether they harbored K-ras mutations, V599EB-Raf, or both.

Cancer Res. 44: 106609 (2003).
- Sorafenib inhibited various nonkinase targets, including adenosine A3, dopamine D1, and muscarine M3 receptors, albeit at much higher (micromolar) concentrations than kinase targets.
