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.

All iPSC lines and R1 mouse ES cells were maintained on feeders in KO-DMEM (Invitrogen) with 3 mM CHIR99021, and 1 mM PD0325901.
Used to grow mES cells in 2i conidtions. The cells grew well and I did QPCR on isolated RNA
Mouse ES cells in 2i remain to be in the naive pluripotent state while cells in -2i for 48 hours exit naive pluripotency
Primary lung endothelial cells were pretreated with various concentrations of PD 0325901 for 30 minutes prior to the treatment of IL1b (1ng/ml).
24 hours later, cell was lyzed and analyzed by western blot. Lane 1: PBS controlLane 2: + PD 0326901 100nMLane 3: + PD 0326901 10nM

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.
