BCI-215 is a potent and tumor cell-selective dual specificity MAPK phosphatase (DUSP-MKP) inhibitor. BCI-215 has cytotoxicity for tumor cells but not normal cells[1][2].

IC50 & Target


In Vitro

BCI-215 concentration-dependently increases pERK levels in DUSP-overexpressing cells with IC50 value in the micromolar range[1].
BCI-215 (1-20 μM; 6 hours) retains fibroblast growth factor hyperactivating and cellular DUSP6/MKP-3 and DUSP1/MKP-1 inhibitory activity but is nontoxic to zebrafish embryos and an endothelial cell line[1].
BCI-215 inhibits survival and motility of MDA-MB-231 human breast cancer cells but does not affect viability of cultured hepatocytes[2].
BCI-215 is completely devoid of hepatocyte toxicity up to 100 µM[2].
BCI-215 does not generate ROS in hepatocytes or in developing Zebrafish larvae. BCI-215 (22 µM) has antimigratory and proapoptotic activities in breast cancer cells that correlate with induction of ERK phosphorylation[2].
BCI-215 (20 µM; 1 hour) induces mitogenic and stress signaling in cancer cells without generating ROS[2].

Apoptosis Analysis [2]

Cell Line: MDA-MB-231 cells
Concentration: 22 µM
Incubation Time:
Result: Caused apoptotic cell death at concentrations that induce ERK phosphorylation.

Western Blot Analysis[2]

Cell Line: MDA-MB-231 cells
Concentration: 20 µM
Incubation Time: 1 hour
Result: Induced a stress response that is not dependent on oxidation.
