SU-5402 is a potent inhibitor of FGFR, VEGFR, and PDGFR. SU-5402 has been used in many studies to inhibit cancer cell growth, or modulate stem cell phenotypes, including maintenance of mouse ESCs, or inducing generation of functional human nociceptors from human ESCs/iPSCs when combined with LDN193189/BMP inhibitor, SB431542/TGFβ inhibitor, CHIR99021/GSK3 inhibitor, and DAPT/Notch inhibitor.

How to use

In Vitro:

SU5402 inhibits VEGF-, FGF-, PDGF- dependent cell proliferation with IC50 of 0.05 μM, 2.80μM, 28.4 μM, respectively. In HUVECs, SU5416 selectively inhibits VEGF-driven mitogenesis in a dose-dependent manner with IC50 of 0.04 μM. In nasopharyngeal epithelial cells, SU5402 attenuates LMP1-mediated aerobic glycolysis, cellular transformation, cell migration, and invasion. In mouse C3H10T1/2 cells, SU 5402 diminishes the effect of FGF23 on cell differentiation.

In Vivo:

In mice, SU5416 (25 mg/kg, i.p.) inhibits subcutaneous growth of a panel of tumor cell lines by inhibiting the angiogenic process associated with tumor growth.
