Inhibitor Comments
Note that sunitinib inhibits a range of additional kinases, including platelet-derived growth factor receptor α (PDGFRα), vascular endothelial growth factor receptors (VEGFR1, VEGFR2 and VEGFR3), stem cell factor receptor (KIT), Fms-like tyrosine kinase-3 (FLT3) and colony stimulating factor receptor Type 1 (CSF-1R).
