LY2835219 free base is orally available cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitor that targets the CDK4 (cyclin D1) and CDK6 (cyclin D3) cell cycle pathway, with potential antineoplastic activity. LY2835219 inhibits CDK4 and CDK6 with low nanomolar potency. LY2835219 specifically inhibits CDK4 and 6, thereby inhibiting retinoblastoma (Rb) protein phosphorylation in early G1. Inhibition of Rb phosphorylation prevents CDK-mediated G1-S phase transition, thereby arresting the cell cycle in the G1 phase, suppressing DNA synthesis and inhibiting cancer cell growth.

How to use
LY2835219 free base reduces cell viability with the IC50 values ranging from 0.5 μM to 0.7 μM, inhibits Akt and ERK signaling but not mTOR activation at head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) cells. LY2835219 free base shows inhibition on A375R1-4, M14R, and SH4R with EC50 values ranging from 0.3 to 0.6 μM; Abemaciclib inhibits the proliferation of the parental A375 and resistant A375RV1 and A375RV2 cells with similar potencies with IC50 values of 395, 260, and 463 nM, respectively. LY2835219 free base inhibits CDK4 and CDK6 with low nanomolar potency, inhibits Rb phosphorylation resulting in a G1 arrest and inhibition of proliferation, and its activity is specific for Rb-proficient cells.
LY2835219 free base (45 mg/kg, p.o.) in combination with RAD001 causes a cooperative antitumor effect in HNSCC xenograft tumor. LY2835219 free base (45 or 90 mg/kg, p.o.) shows significant tumor growth inhibition in an A375 xenograft model.
