MedKoo CAT#: 100952

CAS#: 641571-10-0 (free base)

Description: Nilotinib, also known as AMN107, is a small-molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor approved for the treatment of imatinib-resistant chronic myelogenous leukemia. Structurally related to imatinib, it was developed based on the structure of the Abl-imatinib complex to address imatinib intolerance and resistance. Nilotinib is a selective Bcr-Abl kinase inhibitor that is 10-30 fold more potent than imatinib in inhibiting Bcr-Abl tyrosine kinase activity and proliferation of Bcr-Abl expressing cells. Nolitinib was developed by Novartis and is sold under the trade name Tasigna.

More Info:

Biological target: Nilotinib (AMN-107) is a selective Bcr-Abl inhibitor with IC50 less than 30 nM in Murine myeloid progenitor cells.
In vitro activity: Nilotinib inhibited proliferation, migration, and actin filament formation, as well as the expression of α-SMA and collagen in activated HSCs. Nilotinib induced apoptosis of HSCs, which was correlated with reduced bcl-2 expression, increased p53 expression, cleavage of PARP, as well as increased expression of PPARγ and TRAIL-R. Nilotinib also induced cell cycle arrest, accompanied by increased expression of p27 and downregulation of cyclin D1. Interestingly, Nilotinib not only inhibited activation of PDGFR, but also TGFRII through Src. Nilotinib significantly inhibited PDGF and TGFβ-simulated phosphorylation of ERK and Akt. Furthermore, PDGF- and TGFβ-activated phosphorylated form(s) of Abl in human HSCs were inhibited by Nilotinib. Reference: J Hepatol. 2011 Sep;55(3):612-625.
In vivo activity: Histopathology showed that nilotinib attenuated the extent of lung injury and fibrosis. The numbers of inflammatory cells and levels of IL-6, IL-1β and tumor necrosis factor-α were decreased in the nilotinib groups on days 3 and 7. Nilotinib therapy significantly reduced the levels of hydroxyproline on days 14 and 21, which was accompanied by decreased expression levels of transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1 and PDGFR-β. Nilotinib also significantly reduced the expression levels of the genes for TGF-β1 and platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF). When nilotinib was given 7 days after the instillation of bleomycin, it attenuated pulmonary fibrosis. Reference: Respiration. 2011;82(3):273-87.
