Product Description

AZD-3463 (AZD3463) is a novel, potent and selective ALK/IGF1R inhibitor with potential anticancer activity. It is capable of overcoming several ways in which crizotinib-induced acquired resistance occurs. By causing apoptosis and overcoming crizotinib resistance, AZD3463 prevents the growth of neuroblastomas. In orthotopic xenograft mouse models, AZD3463 demonstrated a strong antitumor efficacy against neuroblastoma tumors containing WT and F1174L oncogenic mutant ALK.

Biological Activity I Assay Protocols (From Reference)
IGF-1R; ALK (Ki = 0.75 nM)
ln Vitro
AZD3463 exhibits strong effects in preclinical models driven by ALK as well as in a range of crizotinib-resistant models. As evidenced by its capacity to reduce ALK autophosphorylation in tumor cell lines carrying ALK fusions, such as DEL (ALCL NPM-ALK), H3122 (NSCLC EML4-ALK), and H2228 (NSCLC EML4-ALK), AZD3463 inhibits ALK in cells. ALK inhibition is linked to disruptions in the ERK, AKT, and STAT3 signaling cascades, which specifically inhibit the proliferation of ALK-fusion-containing cell lines in vitro. AZD3463 continues to exhibit strong activity against several clinically significant crizotinib-resistant mutations, such as the gatekeeper mutant L1196M, which exhibits in vitro and in vivo equivalent potency to wild type ALK in BAF3 cell lines containing EML4-ALK. In order to evaluate AZD3463's potential to circumvent additional resistance mechanisms, antiproliferative activity is evaluated in both a patient-derived crizotinib relapsed model and multiple independently derived in vitro crizotinib resistant cell lines derived from H3122 cells. The L1196M gatekeeper and T115Ins mutations, ALK amplification, and/or secondary drivers like EGFR and IGF1R are just a few of the resistance mechanisms present in these resistant cell lines. In vitro, AZD3463 maintains its antiproliferative efficacy in 10 of the 12 acquired resistance models, four times that of the parental H3122 cells.[1]
ln vivo
AZD3463 exhibits the capacity to inhibit pALK in xenograft tumors in vivo in a dose-dependent manner, leading to either stasis (H3122) or regression (DEL, H2228).[1]
Enzyme Assay
ZD-3463 is an ALK/IGF1R inhibitor that circumvents a number of mechanisms involved in the development of crizotinib resistance.

*Note: Please select an appropriate solvent for the preparation of stock solution based on your experiment needs. For most products, DMSO can be used for preparing stock solutions (e.g. 5 mM, 10 mM, or 20 mM concentration); some products with high aqueous solubility may be dissolved in water directly. Solubility information is available at the above Solubility Data section. Once the stock solution is prepared, aliquot it to routine usage volumes and store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid repeated freeze and thaw cycles.


Molarity Calculator allows you to calculate the mass, volume, and/or concentration required for a solution, as detailed below:

  • Calculate the Mass of a compound required to prepare a solution of known volume and concentration
  • Calculate the Volume of solution required to dissolve a compound of known mass to a desired concentration
  • Calculate the Concentration of a solution resulting from a known mass of compound in a specific volume
An example of molarity calculation using the molarity calculator is shown below:
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 5 ml of DMSO given that the molecular weight of the compound is 350.26 g/mol?
  • Enter 350.26 in the Molecular Weight (MW) box
  • Enter 10 in the Concentration box and choose the correct unit (mM)
  • Enter 5 in the Volume box and choose the correct unit (mL)
  • Click the “Calculate” button
  • The answer of 17.513 mg appears in the Mass box. In a similar way, you may calculate the volume and concentration.

Dilution Calculator allows you to calculate how to dilute a stock solution of known concentrations. For example, you may Enter C1, C2 & V2 to calculate V1, as detailed below:

What volume of a given 10 mM stock solution is required to make 25 ml of a 25 μM solution?
Using the equation C1V1 = C2V2, where C1=10 mM, C2=25 μM, V2=25 ml and V1 is the unknown:
  • Enter 10 into the Concentration (Start) box and choose the correct unit (mM)
  • Enter 25 into the Concentration (End) box and select the correct unit (mM)
  • Enter 25 into the Volume (End) box and choose the correct unit (mL)
  • Click the “Calculate” button
  • The answer of 62.5 μL (0.1 ml) appears in the Volume (Start) box

Molecular Weight Calculator allows you to calculate the molar mass and elemental composition of a compound, as detailed below:

Note: Chemical formula is case sensitive: C12H18N3O4  c12h18n3o4
Instructions to calculate molar mass (molecular weight) of a chemical compound:
  • To calculate molar mass of a chemical compound, please enter the chemical/molecular formula and click the “Calculate’ button.
Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
  • Molecular mass (or molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
  • Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.

Reconstitution Calculator allows you to calculate the volume of solvent required to reconstitute your vial.
