Description

Application

Axitinib has been used as a vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) to study its effect on renal cancer cell proliferation in vitro. It has also been used to inhibit anterior mesenteric artery (AMA) angiogenesis in dechlorinated embryos maintained in conditioned water (CW).

Packaging

5 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Axitinib (AG-013736) is an orally available, potent (picomolar) and selective tyrosine kinase inhibitor that blocks VEGF receptors 1, 2 and 3. The drug blocks VEGF-mediated endothelial cell survival, tube formation, and downstream signaling through endothelial nitric oxide synthase, Akt and extracellular signal-regulated kinase.
