Biological Activity

Description Cabozantinib (XL184, BMS-907351) is a potent inhibitor of VEGFR2 with IC50 of 0.035 nM and also inhibits c-Met, Ret, Kit, Flt-1/3/4, Tie2, and AXL with IC50 of 1.3 nM, 4 nM, 4.6 nM, 12 nM/11.3 nM/6 nM, 14.3 nM and 7 nM, respectively.

Cell experiment: [1]

Cell lines

Human microvascular endothelial (HMVEC) cells

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is >10 mM. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37 °C for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while.Stock solution can be stored below -20°C for several months.

Reaction Conditions

IC50: 6.7 nM, 7 days


HMVEC cells were incubated with VEGF in the presence of cabozantinib and tubule formation visualized by immunostaining for CD31. Cabozantinib inhibited tubule formation with an IC50 value of 6.7 nM with no evidence of cytotoxicity, showing that cabozantinib exerts an antiangiogenic rather than cytotoxic effect.

Animal experiment: [1]

Animal models

Female nu/nu mice implanted with H441 cells

Dosage form

Oral administration, 100 mg/kg, 8 hours


A single 100 mg/kg oral dose of cabozantinib resulted in inhibition of phosphorylation of MET 2 to 8 hours postdose in H441 tumors that harbor constitutively phosphorylated MET. This effect was reversible, as MET phosphorylation returned to basal levels by 48 hours after treatment.

Other notes

Please test the solubility of all compounds indoor, and the actual solubility may slightly differ with the theoretical value. This is caused by an experimental system error and it is normal.

Cabozantinib (also called XL184, BMS-907351 Cometriq [1]), is an inhibitor of multiple receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs), including vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR2), hepatocyte growth factor receptor (MET), and rearranged during transfection (RET) [2] [3], with IC50 values of 0.035 nmol/L, 1.3 nmol/L and 5.2 nmol/L to VEGFR2, MET and RET, respectively [4].

RTKs transmit a wide array of extracellular signals for regulating differentiation and proliferation to cells. Ligand binding triggers many events such as autophosphorylation of tyrosine residues and receptor dimerization [5].

TT cell line was a human MTC cell line that had an activating C634W RET mutant and was expressing calcitonin. In this cell line, cabozantinib inhibited the autophosphorylation of RET with an IC50 value of 85 nmol/L. In TT cells grown for 72 h in 10% serum, cabozantinib dose-dependently inhibited cell proliferation with an IC50 value of 94 nmol/L [4].

Administrated with cabozantinib daily orally at doses of 10, 30, or 60 mg/kg, nu/nu mice bearing TT xenograft tumors, showed a significantly inhibited tumor growth compared with vehicle-treated group. At both doses of 30 and 60 mg/kg, cabozantinib caused markedly and significantly reduced circulating calcitonin (75%; p< 0.005) in serum compared with vehicle-treated control animals [4].
