AbstactAberrant activation of Raf signaling pathway is frequently found in various human tumors, it has been considered as distinct and promising molecular target for cancer therapeutics. B-Raf is most attractive drug target out of three Raf isoforms (A-Raf, B-Raf and C-Raf) because it exhibits high kinase activity due to frequent mutations in human tumors. However, most recently, it has been reported that Raf isoforms show the cross-activation in the presence of specific B-Raf inhibitors… Expand

Involvement of superoxide and nitric oxide in BRAF(V600E) inhibitor PLX4032-induced growth inhibition of melanoma cells.
TLDR
For the first time, superoxide (O2˙(-)) and nitric oxide (NO) generated from PLX4032-challenged melanoma cells were monitored using electrochemical sensors and conventional fluorescein staining techniques and suggest that PLX 4032 can selectively cause ROS production and depolarization of mitochondrial membranes.

An Investigation of Molecular Docking and Molecular Dynamic Simulation on Imidazopyridines as B-Raf Kinase Inhibitors
TLDR
To understand the binding between B-Raf and imidazopyridines, molecular docking, molecular dynamic simulation and binding free energy (ΔGbind) calculation were performed and it is revealed that both electrostatic and van der Waals contributions are important to ΔGbind and the unfavorable polar solvation contribution results in the instability of the inhibitor with the lowest activity.
