Catalog Number: 3300
Chemical Name: 2-[(1,2-Dihydro-2-oxo-3H-indol-3-ylidene)methyl]-4-methyl-1H-pyrrole-3-propanoic acid
Biological Activity
Potent and selective vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR) and fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) inhibitor (IC50 values are 0.02, 0.03, 0.51 and > 100 μM at VEGFR2, FGFR1, PDGFRβ and EGFR respectively). Inhibits embryonic left-right determination and exhibits potent anticancer activity in vitro and in vivo. Also attenuates integrin β4-induced differentiation of neural stem cells.
