Cell experiment:

MH-85 cells and HER 14 cells are plated in complete medium, either αMEM or DMEM, respectively, supplemented with 10% FCS. After overnight culture, the culture medium is switched to αMEM supplemented with 0.2% PCS and 50 ng/mL EGF (MH-85) or DMEM supplemented with 0.5% PCS and 50 ng/mL EGF (HER14). The cells are cultured in this medium in the presence or absence of increasing concentrations of RG-13022 or RG-14620 for 10 days. At the end of culture, the cells are fixed with 4% (v/v) formaldehyde in calcium-magnesium-free phosphate-buffered saline for 15 min at room temperature and stained with hematoxylin. Numbers of colonies including more than 20 cells in each well are counted under the microscope[2].

Animal experiment:

Mice: RG14620 in 0.1 mL 100% DMSO is injected i.p. twice a day from 1day after MH-85 tumor inoculation. Control animals are given the same vehicle[1].

RG-14620 is a tyrosine kinase and epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor [1].

Protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs) have been involved in regulating cell proliferation, cell differentiation, and signaling processes in the immune system. Dysfunction of protein tyrosine kinases result in inflammatory responses and diseases including cancer, atherosclerosis, and psoriasis [2]. The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a transmembrane glycoprotein. Activation of EGFR results in autophosphorylation of receptor tyrosine kinase and has been involved in regulating cellular proliferation, differentiation, and survival. Overexpression of EGFR has been identified in a variety of tumor cell lines and has been associated with poor prognosis and decreased survival [3].

RG-14620 inhibited the activity of epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor kinase with an IC50 value of 3 μM in HT-22 cells [1]. RG-14620 suppressed not only EGF-stimulated cancer cell proliferation in vitro but also tumor growth in nude mice [4]. Tyrphostin RG-14620 dose-dependently inhibited the EGFR-associated tyrosine kinase with half maximal inhibition at 7 μM [5].
