Tyrphostin AG 879 (AG 879) is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor that inhibits TrKA phosphorylation (IC50 of 10 μM), but not TrKB and TrKC. Tyrphostin AG 879 is also a selective ErbB2 tyrosine kinase inhibitor with an IC50 of 1 μM, and has at least 500-fold higher selectivity to ErbB2 than EGFR. Tyrphostin AG 879 has anticancer activity.

How to use

In Vitro:

Tyrphostin AG 879 (0.5-50 μM; 48 hours; HL-60, U-937, PC-3, HTB-82, HTB-114, TE-671, HTB-115 and HTB-88 cells) treatment significantly and dose dependently decreases cell proliferation in all the cell lines. Tyrphostin AG 879 (0.5-50 μM; 48 hours; HL-60, U-937, PC-3, HTB-82, HTB-114, TE-671, HTB-115 and HTB-88 cells) treatment also induces a dose-dependent increase in apoptosis with the exception of the lines TE-671 and HTB-88 cells.

In Vivo:

Tyrphostin AG 879 (100 mg/kg;subcutaneous injection; administered 10 times in 19 days; for 21 days; athymic, immunodepressed NOD/SCID female mice) treatment induces in vivo a decrease in cancer growth in grafted athymic NOD/SCID mice.
