Chemical Name : Masitinib/AB1010
CAS : 790299-79-5
Masitinib (AB1010) selectively inhibits wild-type and juxtamembranous mutated (JM) c-KIT(the mast cell growth factor receptor),PDGFR and FGFR3. Masitinib inhibits wild-type human and murine KIT in vitro with an IC50 of approximately 200 nM, and administered PO masitinib blocks the growth of tumors expressing juxtamembrane-mutated KIT in mice.
