FAK inhibitor 14 (4506-66-5) is a selective focal adhesion kinase (FAK) inhibitor that displays no significant activity at a range of other kinases including EGFR, PDGFR and IGF-RI. Prevents FAK autophosphorylation at Y397 (IC50 = 1 μM), promotes cell detachment and inhibits cell adhesion in vitro. FAK inhibitor 14 exhibits antiproliferative activity in a variety of human tumor cell lines in vitro and in breast cancer cells in vivo. Induces regression of pancreatic tumors2 and glioblastoma3. Displays antiangiogenic activity4.
