FTY720 can be phosphorylated by sphingosine kinase, which then acts as a potent agonist at four of the sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) receptors (S1P1, S1P3, S1P4, and S1P5). IC50 of (S)- and (R)- FTY720-phosphate on lymphocyte migration toward 10 nM of S1P are 0.137 nM and 10.98 nM respectively. The IC50 values to cell lines MCF-7 (IC50=6.8��0.6µM), MDA-MB-231(IC50=6.7��0.5µM), Sk-Br-3(IC50=5.8��1.3µM), HCT-116(IC50=5.7��1.2µM), and SW620(IC50=6.7��0.6µM), are determined by WST-1 assay 48h after treatment.
