Selective ERK inhibitor (IC50 values are 0.14 and 0.31 μM for ERK2 and ERK1 respectively). Displays 30-fold selectivity for ERK over p38α (IC50 = 10 μM); displays no activity against human recombinant MEK1, MKK4, IKKα, PKCα, Src, Syc and PDGFα at concentrations less than 30 μM. Also inhibits TGFβ-induced AP-1 activation in Mv1Lu cells (IC50 = 3.1 μM).

MG-63 cells were pre-incubated with 10 µM FR 180204 for 30 min followed by treatment with 10 µM LPA for 3 h to follow COX-2 expression using Western blot. FR 180204 inhibited COX-2 induction by LPA.

MAPK Signaling Scientific Review
MAP kinase signaling is integral to the regulation of numerous cellular processes such as proliferation and differentiation, and as a result is an important focus of cancer and immunology research. Updated for 2016, this review discusses the regulation of the MAPK pathway and properties of MAPK cascades. Compounds available from Tocris are listed.
