Sorafenib | Inhibitor of Raf-1 and other kinases

Sorafenib (475207-59-1; base) was initially developed as a Raf kinase inhibitor, IC50 = 6 nM, but has been shown to inhibit many receptor tyrosine kinases including BRAF (IC50 = 22 nM); VEGFR-2 (IC50 = 90 nM); VEGFR-3 (IC50 = 20 nM); PDGFR-β (IC50 = 57 nM); Flt3 (IC50 = 58 nM); c-KIT (IC50 = 68 nM); FGFR-1 (IC50 = 580 nM).1 Paradoxically more potent in a cellular assay (IC50 = 20 nM) compared to an isolated enzyme assay (IC50 = 107 nM) for c-Fms.2 Inhibits activation of MAPK pathway and ERK phosphorylation.3 Induces caspase-independent apoptosis in melanoma cells.4 Sorafenib is a clinically useful anticancer agent.
