Description: Motesanib, also known as AMG-706, is the orally bioavailable multiple-receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor with potential antineoplastic activity. Motesanib selectively targets and inhibits vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGFR), platelet-derived growth factor (PDGFR), kit, and Ret receptors, thereby inhibiting angiogenesis and cellular proliferation.

|Biological target:||Motesanib is a ATP-competitive inhibitor of VEGFR1/2/3 with IC50s of 2 nM/3 nM/6 nM, respectively.|
|In vitro activity:||One of the major findings of this study was that motesanib significantly increased the sensitivity of ABCB1 overexpressing KB-C2 drug selected cell line to paclitaxel, colchicine and vincristine, which are substrates of ABCB1 transporter. The motesanib-induced enhancement in the sensitivity of KB-C2 cells to the substrates was represented by a significant decrease in the IC50 values for the aforementioned substrates in the presence of motesanib in the MTT assay, a measurement of cell survival (Table 1). The motesanib-induced potentiation was selective because at the concentrations used in this study (1 µM and 3 µM), motesanib (1) did not produce a significant toxic effect on the parental KB-3-1 cell (non-overexpressing) and (2) failed to potentiate the effect of the substrate drugs on the parental KB-3-1 cells.

|In vivo activity:||Mice were injected intravenously with Evans blue dye and Motesanib (50 mg/kg) and subjected to the Miles assay. Motesanib reduced the extravasation of Evans blue in the tumor, but not the skin, indicating that Motesanib inhibited tumor vascular permeability (Fig. 6A). This finding is consistent with previous studies that demonstrated an inhibition of VEGF-induced vascular permeability by Motesanib administration. By immunohistochemistry, this study confirmed that Motesanib suppressed the VEGFR2 tyrosine kinase activity, but not the expression of VEGFR2 (Supplementary Fig. S3). This study next examined the response of endothelial PKA activity to Motesanib by in vivo FRET imaging. Motesanib robustly activated PKA in the endothelial cells of the tumors, but not in the endothelial cells of the subcutaneous tissues (Fig. 6B), indicating that VEGFR played a major role in the suppression of PKA. Notably, Motesanib had no effect on the ERK activities in tumor and normal endothelial cells (Fig. 6C). The lack of effect on ERK activity is probably due to the low basal ERK activity. In fact, when ERK activity in tumor endothelial cells was elevated by VEGF, Motesanib markedly decreased ERK activity (Supplementary Fig. S4A–S4C).
