Biological Activity

PLX4032, also known as Vemurafenib, RG7204, RO5185426 and Zelboraf, is a highly selective B-Raf enzyme inhibitor with an IC50 of 44 nM against V600E-mutant BRAF.

Results We found that PLX4032 induced significant dose-dependent apoptosis over a time course of 5 days in all BRAF mutant melanoma cell lines (M14, UACC257, Malme3M, SKMEL5 and UACC62), whereas the BRAFWT cells (CHL-1) were unaffected.
Cell Experiment
Cell lines MDA-MB-435 cells line
Preparation method Cellular proliferation assays Cellular proliferation was evaluated by 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazole-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl-2H-tetrazolium bromide (MTT; Sigma) assay. Briefly, cells were plated in 96-well microtiter plates at a density of 1,000 to 5,000 cells per well in a volume of 180 μL. For the assay, RG7204 was prepared at 10 times the final assay concentration in media containing 1% DMSO. Twenty-four hours after cell plating, 20 μL of the appropriate dilution were added to plates in duplicate. The plates were assayed for proliferation 6 days after the cells were plated according to the procedure originally described by Mosmann . The IC50 was determined from the regression of a plot of the logarithm of the concentration versus percent inhibition by XLfit (version 4.2; IDBS) using the Dose-Response One-Site Model (#205).

Animal models Colo829 and A375 xenografts
Formulation an aqueous vehicle containing 2% Klucel LF (Hydroxypropylcellulose; Aqualon) and adjusted to pH 4 with dilute HCl.
Dosages 100 mg/kg bid
Administration oral gavage

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.
