Figure 4: Effect of lenvatinib on FGFR1 signaling pathway in human DTC RO82-W-1 cells in vitro. After starvation overnight, RO82-W-1 cells were treated with vehicle (control), lenvatinib or sorafenib at the indicated concentrations for 1 h and were then stimulated for 10 min with bFGF (20 ng/mL) and heparin before being lysed. Western blot analyses of the phosphorylation of FGFR1 and its downstream effectors in RO82-W-1 cells were then performed and representative images were shown.
