Method The kinase activity assay
Cell Lines HeLa cells
Concentrations 1 μM
Incubation Time 20 min
Results To avoid earlystage effects on central spindle formation, PLK1 and Aurora-B were inhibited by BI 2536 and Hesperadin, respectively, in temporally controlled modes.
Cell Experiment
Cell lines HeLa, A43, SKOV-3, HT-29, K562, A549, Saos-2, MCF7, HCT116, COLO 205, Hep G2, Raji and PC-3 cells line
Preparation method cell viability were quantified by Alamar Blue assay, 72 hr after initiation of BI 2536 treatment or the vehicle control. The bar chart summarizes the mean values for half-maximal growth inhibition for each cell line (EC50 values; [nM]) on a logarithmic scale.
Concentrations 1~100nM
Incubation time 72 hr

Animal models Nude mice bearing established HCT 116 tumors xenograft model

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
