Potent MEK1 and MEK2 inhibitor. Inhibits MEK activity in mouse colon 26 cells (IC50 = 0.33 nM). Inhibits the growth of melanoma cell lines in vitro and in vivo; induces G1-phase cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in a mouse xenograft model. Also inhibits production of proangiogenic cytokines such as VEGF. Enhances generation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). Orally active.

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.
