Abstract Text Rearranged during transfection (RET), an oncogenic driver, has been found in multiple tumor types and is thus a promising anticancer therapeutic target. Novel selective RET inhibitors (RETi) that can overcome V804 gatekeeper mutations, endowing resistance to multikinase inhibitors (MKI) and, in particular, achieving KDR selectivity, are needed. In addition, the mechanisms underlying RET-inhibition-induced antiproliferative effects in the context of RET addiction are incompletely understood. This study describes a novel selective RETi, SYHA1815, which inhibited the kinase activity of RET wild type and V804 mutant with an IC50 in the subnanomolar to nanomolar range. Notably, SYHA1815 exhibited approximately 20-fold selectivity for RET over KDR, almost equivalent to that of the launched selective inhibitor pralsetinib. SYHA1815 had only a marginal inhibitory effect on cellular KDR signaling at a high (200 nmol/L) concentration, confirming the selectivity over KDR. In addition, SYHA1815 exhibited a favorable selectivity profile, with greater than 100-fold selectivity for RET over 347 other kinases. It exhibited potent antitumor efficacy and overcame V804 mutations in vitro and in vivo by targeting RET. Then, using SYHA1815 as a probe, we found that RET inhibition suppressed RET-driven cell proliferation via G1 cell-cycle arrest through downregulating c-Myc. Furthermore, disruption of c-Myc upon Brd4 inhibitor treatment led to G1 cell-cycle arrest and overrode RET-driven cell proliferation. Moreover, consistent with the marked in vivo efficacy of RET inhibition, the intratumoral c-Myc level was significantly decreased. In summary, SYHA1815 is a promising RETi for RET-aberrant cancer treatment that is currently in a phase I trial.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.
