Description VX-11e is a potent, selective, and orally bioavailable ERK(Extracellular Signal-Regulated Kinase) inhibitor; antitumor agent.
Targets&IC50 Aurora A :ic50 540nM(Ki),   CDK2 :ic50 850nM(Ki),   ERK2 :ic50 <2nM(Ki),   FLT3 :ic50 1.4μM(Ki),   GSK-3 :ic50 400nM(Ki),  
In vitro In HT29 cells, VX-11e potently inhibits cell proliferation with IC50 of 48 nM. [1]
In vivo In both rats and mice, VX-11e shows good oral bioavailability. [1] In NSG mice bearing human melanoma RPDX tumors, VX-11e (50 mg/kg, p.o.) results in robust inhibition of pRSK, and inhibits tumor growth. When used in combination with BKM120, VX-11e results in significantly improved tumor growth inhibition. [2]
Kinase Assay ERK Inhibition Assay: Compounds are assayed for the inhibition of ERK2 by a spectophotometric coupled-enzyme assay. In this assay, a fixed concentration of activated ERK2 (10 nM) is incubated with various concentrations of the compounds in DMSO (2.5%) for 10 min. at 30 °C in 0.1 M HEPES buffer, pH = 7.5, containing 10 mM MgCl2, 2.5 mM phosphoenolpyruvate, 200 μM NADH, 150 μg/mL pyruvate kinase, 50 μg/mL lactate dehydrogenase and 200 μM erktide peptide. The reaction is initiated by the addition of 65 μM ATP. The rate of decrease of absorbance at 340 nM is monitored. The IC50 is evaluated from the data as a function of inhibitor concentr
Cell Research
Cell proliferation is measured by 3H-thymidine incorporation. The cells are plated at a concentration of 10,000 cells/well in a 96-well plate using growth media, RPMI 1640 containing 10% FBS. Serially diluted compounds are added. The cells and compounds are incubated for 48 hours at 37°C incubator. After 48 hours, 0.4 μCi of 3H-thymidine is added to each wells for 8 hours and returned to the 37°C incubator. The cells are harvested using a Tomtec 96-well cell harvester and the CPM is determined using the Wallac 1205 BETAPLATE liquid scintillation counter. The IC50 is the 50% inhibition of contr(Only for Reference)

Molecular Weight Calculator

Molarity Calculator allows you to calculate the

  • mass of a compound required to prepare a solution of known volume and concentration
  • volume of solution required to dissolve a compound of known mass to a desired concentration
  • concentration of a solution resulting from a known mass of compound in a specific volume
See Example

An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
Enter 197.13 into the Molecular Weight (MW) box
Enter 10 into the Concentration box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 10 into the Volume box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 19.713 mg appears in the Mass box


Calculator the dilution required to prepare a stock solution

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution
The dilution calculator is a useful tool which allows you to calculate how to dilute a stock solution of known concentration. Enter C1, C2 & V2 to calculate V1.

See Example

An example of a dilution calculation using the Tocris dilution calculator
What volume of a given 10 mM stock solution is required to make 20ml of a 50 μM solution?
Using the equation C1V1 = C2V2, where C1=10 mM, C2=50 μM, V2=20 ml and V1 is the unknown:
Enter 10 into the Concentration (start) box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 50 into the Concentration (final) box and select the correct unit (micromolar)
Enter 20 into the Volume (final) box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 100 microliter (0.1 ml) appears in the Volume (start) box
