- AXL/cMET receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor BPI-9016M
An orally available inhibitor of the receptor tyrosine kinases AXL (UFO) and c-MET/hepatocyte growth factor receptor (HGFR) with antineoplastic activity. Upon administration, AXL/c-MET receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor BPI-9016M, binds to both AXL and c-MET, thereby disrupting both AXL- and c-MET-mediated signaling pathways. Altogether, this agent inhibits growth in AXL- and c-MET-overexpressing tumor cells. AXL, a member of the TAM (TYRO3, AXL and MER) family of receptor tyrosine kinases, and c-MET, both overexpressed by many tumor cell types, play key roles in tumor cell proliferation, survival, invasion and metastasis.
