In contrast, targeted therapy that has been introduced in recent years is directed against cancer-specific molecules and signaling pathways and thus has more limited nonspecific toxicities. Tyrosine kinases are an especially important target because they play an important role in the modulation of growth factor signaling Tyrosine kinases help to send growth signals in cells, so blocking them stops the cell growing and dividing. Cancer growth blockers can block one type of tyrosine kinase or more than one type. TKIs that block more than one type of tyrosine kinase are called multi-TKIs. Single TKI Multi TKI. Examples of TKIs include: axitinib (Inlyta) dasatinib (Sprycel To date, about 11 anti-angiogenic TKIs with different binding capacities to angiogenic receptor tyrosine kinase have been approved for the treatment of patients with advanced cancers. This review presents all approved anti-angiogenic small molecule receptor TKIs so far with an emphasis on their indications and clinical efficacy
A tyrosine kinase is an enzyme that can transfer a phosphate group from ATP to the tyrosine residues of specific proteins inside a cell. It functions as an on or off switch in many cellular functions. Tyrosine kinases belong to a larger class of enzymes known as protein kinases which also attach phosphates to other amino acids such as serine and threonine De receptor-tyrosinekinasen (RTK's) vormen een groep membraanreceptoren die vele groeifactoren, cytokinen en hormonen kunnen herkennen. In het menselijke genoom zijn 90 tyrosinekinase genen geïdentificeerd, waarvan er 58 coderen voor receptor-tyrosinekinase eiwitten Geneesmiddel dat de werking van tyrosine-kinase tegengaat, een enzym dat deelneemt aan het signaleringsproces dat zich afspeelt in de cellen eenmaal de groeifactoren zich aan de op de cellen aanwezige receptoren gehecht hebben. Tyrosine-kinase speelt een rol in de communicatie, de ontwikkeling, de deling en de groei van de cellen
Receptor tyrosine kinases have been shown not only to be key regulators of normal cellular processes but also to have a critical role in the development and progression of many types of cancer. Mutations in receptor tyrosine kinases lead to activation of a series of signalling cascades which have numerous effects on protein expression. Receptor tyrosine kinases are part of the larger family of protein tyrosine kinases, encompassing the receptor tyrosine kinase proteins which. The rationale for druggability of CCDC6-tyrosine kinase fusions in lung cancer Gene fusions occur in up to 17% of solid tumours. Oncogenic kinases are often involved in such fusions. In lung cancer, almost 30% of patients carrying an activated oncogene show the fusion of a tyrosine kinas.. Constitutive oncogenic activation in cancer cells can be blocked by selective tyrosine kinase inhibitors and thus considered as a promising approach for innovative genome based therapeutics
c-Src, a nonreceptor tyrosine kinase that is localized to intracellular membranes of the cell, has also been found to be overexpressed or highly activated in a number of human neoplasms, including carcinomas of the breast, lung, colon, esophagus, skin, parotid, cervix, and gastric tissues, as well as in neuroblastomas and myeloproliferative disorders Tyrosine kinases, both nonreceptor and receptor tyrosine kinases, are overexpressed in solid tumors and stimulate their growth and spread. One receptor tyrosine kinase that is overexpressed in most solid tumors is EGFR-TK (epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase) The human genome encodes 538 protein kinases that transfer a γ-phosphate group from ATP to serine, threonine, or tyrosine residues. Many of these kinases are associated with human cancer initiation and progression. The recent development of small-molecule kinase inhibitors for the treatment of diverse types of cancer has proven successful in clinical therapy Most of these activating mutations occur within the tyrosine kinase domain and are transforming in vitro and in vivo (11-14). Importantly, the activity of cancer-specific ALK variants is required for tumor maintenance. Thus, ALK mutants can serve as Achilles heels to be exploited therapeutically
Tyrosine kinase signaling in cancer metabolism functions to enhance the Warburg Effect via increasing glycolysis and lactate production (Hitosugi and Chen, 2014). Glycolytic targets of tyrosine kinase signaling include PGAM1, PKM2, and LDHA where phosphorylation of each of these enzymes promotes increased glycolytic rate and increased tumor cell proliferation ( Hitosugi et al., 2009 , 2013. At the core of thyroid cancer pathogenesis are 2 classical signaling pathways, the MAPK and the PI3K-AKT pathways. 6,7 Both of these pathways are coupled to the receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) at the cell membrane, which transduces an extracellular growth stimulus that prompts downstream intracellular signaling (Figure) The tyrosine kinase EphB4, a member of the Eph receptor family, has been associated with tumor angiogenesis, growth and metastasis, thus making it a valuable and attractive target for drug design for therapeutic applications The ability of growth factors and their cognate receptors to induce mammary epithelial proliferation and differentiation is dependent on their ability to activate a number of specific signal transduction pathways.

However, TKI-associated limitations such as resistance and adverse effects are frequently reported. In this chapter, we would comprehensively review the clinical efficacy of current TKIs using the currently available clinical. Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) is a TEC-family nonreceptor tyrosine kinase that signals downstream of numerous cellular receptors, including the B-cell receptor (BCR), toll-like receptors, and Fc receptors. 1 BTK plays a particularly important role in B-cell development and function and is critical for progression into the cell cycle and proper B-cell activation, 2-4 and loss-of-function. Abnormal Tyrosine Kinase Activity and Cancer: Malignant Transformation and Tumor Angiogenesis.
