Title Inhibition of mutant FLT3 receptors in leukemia cells by the small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor PKC412.
Abstract Text Constitutively activating FLT3 receptor mutations have been found in 35% of patients with acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML). Here we report the identification of a small molecule FLT3 tyrosine kinase inhibitor PKC412, which selectively induced G1 arrest and apoptosis of Ba/F3 cell lines expressing mutant FLT3 (IC(50) < 10 nM) by directly inhibiting the tyrosine kinase. Ba/F3-FLT3 cell lines made resistant to PKC412 demonstrated overexpression of mutant FLT3, confirming that FLT3 is the target of this drug. Finally, progressive leukemia was prevented in PKC412-treated Balb/c mice transplanted with marrow transduced with a FLT3-ITD-expressing retrovirus. PKC412 is a potent inhibitor of mutant FLT3 and is a candidate for testing as an antileukemia agent in AML patients with mutant FLT3 receptors.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. 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 on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "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.

Midostaurin Rydapt PKC412|CGP 41251 CSF1R Inhibitor 28 FLT3 Inhibitor 64 KIT Inhibitor 57 PKC alpha Inhibitor 6 PKC beta Inhibitor 6 PKC Inhibitor (Pan) 11 VEGFR2 Inhibitor 37 Rydapt (midostaurin) is a multi-kinase inhibitor with activity against FLT3, KIT, PDGFRB, KDR (VEGFR2) and PKC, with higher selectivity for conventional PKC isoforms, which induces cell cycle arrest and apoptosis (PMID: 12124173, PMID: 23127174, PMID: 15914319). Rydapt (midostaurin) is FDA approved for FLT3-mutant AML in combination with chemotherapy, and is approved for use in aggressive systemic mastocytosis, systemic mastocytosis with associated hematological neoplasm, or mast cell leukemia as a single therapy (
