Vemurafenib, also known as PLX4032, RG7204 or RO5185426, is an orally bioavailable, ATP-competitive, small-molecule inhibitor of BRAF(V600E) kinase with potential antineoplastic activity. Vemurafenib received FDA approval for the treatment of late-stage melanoma on August 17, 2011. Vemurafenib selectively binds to the ATP-binding site of BRAF(V600E) kinase and inhibits its activity, which may result in an inhibition of an over-activated MAPK signaling pathway downstream in BRAF(V600E) kinase-expressing tumor cells and a reduction in tumor cell proliferation.

How to use

In Vitro:

Vemurafenib (PLX4032) selectively blocks the RAF/MEK/ERK pathway in BRAF mutant cells. RG7204 is a potent inhibitor of proliferation in those expressing RAFV600E but not BRAFWT in 17 melanoma cell lines. Vemurafenib (RG7204) induces MEK and ERK phosphorylation at high concentrations in CHL-1 cells. Ectopic expression of EGFR in melanoma cells is sufficient to cause resistance to PLX4032.

In Vivo:

Vemurafenib (PLX4032, 20, 25, 75 mg/kg, p.o.) causes dose-dependent inhibition of tumor growth, with higher exposures resulting in tumor regression of BRAF mutant xenografts. RG7204 (12.5, 25, and 75 mg/kg, p.o.) significantly inhibits tumor growth and induced tumor regression in mice bearing LOX tumor xenografts.
