Biological Activity

Gefitinib (ZD-1839, Iressa) is a novel potent EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor with an IC50 of 0.40nM.Gefitinib (ZD-1839,Iressa) selectively inhibited EGF-stimulated growth of HUVECs (IC50 = 0.03 - 0.1 µM) compared with FGF- or VEGF-stimulated growth (IC50 = 1 - 3 µM for both).Gefitinib is a competitive inhibitor with respect to ATP (Ki = 2.1 nM) when the peptide substrate concentration was fixed at 2 mM (6-fold higher than the Km) and the ATP concentration was varied.  Gefitinib showed noncompetitive kinetics (Ki = 15.0 nM) when the ATP concentration was 50 µM (6-fold higher than the Km) and the peptide concentration was varied.

Method apoptosis quantified
Cell Lines HCC4006 and H1975 cells
Concentrations 1μM
Incubation Time 72 h
Results We found directly inducing EMT by exogenous TWIST activation (Fig. 2) or chronic TGF- β treatment (Sup. Fig. 2) led to depressed levels of BIM resulting in suppression of EGFRi-induced apoptosis and resistance to EGFRi (WZ4002 and gefitinib).
Cell Experiment
Cell lines MDA-361, SKBR-3, MDA-453 and BT-474 cells
Preparation method Monolayer Growth and Anchorage-independent Growth Assays. For monolayer growth, cells were seeded at a density of 3–4 104 cells in 12-well plates. Twenty-four h later, ZD1839 was added to the cells. Fresh medium ZD1839 was replaced on day 3. On day 5, cells were harvested by trypsinization and counted with a Zeiss Coulter Counter (Beckman Coulter, Miami, FL). Colony-forming assays in soft agarose were performed as described previously (30). Tumor cell colonies measuring 50 m were counted after 7 days using an Omnicon 3800 colony counter and Tumor Colony Analysis V2.IIA software (Imaging Products International, Inc.).
Concentrations 0.1–10 µ M
Incubation time 4 days

Animal models BT-474 cells Xenograft in Athymic Mice

Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km

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.
