Biological Activity

R428 blocks the catalytic and procancerous activities of Axl. R428 inhibits Axl with low nanomolar activity and blocked Axl-dependent events, including Akt phosphorylation, breast cancer cell invasion, and proinflammatory cytokine production. R428 inhibited angiogenesis in corneal micropocket and tumor models. In vitro, R428 caused a concentration-dependent inhibition of preadipocyte differentiation into mature adipocytes, as evidenced by reduced lipid uptake. In vivo, oral administration of R428 for 5 weeks to mice kept on a high-fat diet resulted in significantly reduced weight gain and subcutaneous and gonadal fat mass. Additionally, R428 synergized with cisplatin to enhance suppression of liver micrometastasis.

Method Western blot and MTT assay
Cell Lines MDA-MB-231 cells and MDA-MB-231 cells that were transfected with CTL or ARF1 siRNA
Concentrations 1 µ M
Incubation Time western blot (1 h) and MTT assay (24 h)
Results Interestingly, like in the EGFR inhibitor treatment, the AXL inhibitor, R428, was effective to enhance ARF1 activity. But, more importantly, this inhibitor blocked gefitinib-induced ARF1 activation. Finally, this observation was also found in MDA-MB-157 cells. However, in cells co-treated with the AXL inhibitor, R428, and gefitinib, the depletion of ARF1 was shown to have no effect further suggesting that ARF1 is signaling downstream of AXL in gefitinib treated cells (Figure 6F).
Cell Experiment
Cell lines MDA-MB-231 or 4T1 cells
Preparation method Invasion Assays: MDA-MB-231 or 4T1 cells (1 × 105) were allowed to migrate through Matrigel (Millipore) toward 20% FCS in an 8-μm pore 24-well Transwell plate (BD Bio‐sciences) at 37°C for 16 to 24 h. Noninvaded cells and Matrigel were removed by swabbing. Invaded cells were fixed in 4% formaldehyde, stained with 1% crystal violet, and quantified as for Axl cellbased assay. Cells were preincubated with R428 for 3 h. R428 was added to both upper and lower Transwell chambers.
Concentrations 0, 0.03, 0.3, 3 µ M

Animal models Female BALB/c mice 4T1 Orthotopic Model
Formulation R428 was formulated for in vivo studies in 0.5% hydroxypropylmethylcellulose + 0.1% Tween 80.
Dosages 7–75 mg/kg twice daily
Administration oral gavage
Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)
Species Mouse Rat Rabbit Guinea pig Hamster Dog
Weight (kg) 0.02 0.15 1.8 0.4 0.08 10
Body Surface Area (m2) 0.007 0.025 0.15 0.05 0.02 0.5
Km factor 3 6 12 8 5 20
Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A Km

For example, to modify the dose of Compound A used for a mouse (20 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 20 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 Compound A of 10 mg/kg.
