Biological Activity

Erlotinib Hydrochloride also known as Tarceva, CP-358774, OSI-774 and NSC-718781, is an inhibitor of human EGFR tyrosine kinase (IC50 = 2 nM) and decreases EGFR autophosphorylation in tumor cells (IC50 = 20 nM). Erlotinib specifically targets the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase, which is highly expressed and occasionally mutated in various forms of cancer. It binds in a reversible fashion to the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) binding site of the receptor.

Method Western blot
Cell Lines Female BALB/c nude mice
Concentrations 5 mg/kg
Incubation Time 24 h
Results Erlotinib exerts its anti-tumor effect by inhibiting the intracellular phosphorylation of tyrosine kinase which is related to EGFR. We investigated whether the administration time can affect the ability of erlotinib to inhibit the phosphorylation of EGFR. Under non-drugged state, the phosphorylation of EGFR showed obvious oscillation (p < 0.05, Fig. 3A).

Cell Lines Female BALB/c nude mice
Concentrations 5 mg/kg
Incubation Time 21 d
Results Large areas of cystic degeneration and inflammatory infiltration can be easily spotted in the tumor tissue of mice given erlotinib at 08:00, 12:00 and 04:00, and the tumor cells arranged irregularly with necrosis and minimal bleeding.
Cell Experiment
Cell lines BxPC-3 and MIAPaCa cells
Preparation method Cell Viability Assay To test the viability of cells treated with B-DIM, erlotinib, or the combination, BxPC-3 and MIAPaCa cells were plated (3,000-5,000 per well) in a 96-well plate and incubated overnight at 37jC. We initially tested a range of concentrations for both B-DIM (10-50 µmol/L) and erlotinib (1-5 µmol/L). Based on the initial results, the concentration of B-DIM (20 Amol/L) and erlotinib (2 Amol/L) were chosen for all assays. The effects of B-DIM (20 µmol/L), erlotinib (2 µmol/L), and the combination on BxPC-3 and MIAPaCa cells were determined by the standard 3-(4,5- dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay after 72 h and was repeated three times. The color intensity was measured by a Tecan microplate fluorometer at 595 nm. DMSO-treated cells were considered to be the untreated control and assigned a value of 100%.

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
