Mertansine is a potent microtubule-targeted compound that induces mitotic arrest and kills tumor cells at sub-nanomolar concentrations. Mertansine at a concentration of 100 nmol/L suppressed the growth and shortening rates by 35%, quantitatively similarly to the same concentration of vinblastine. Mertansine inhibits the formation of a cross-link between Cys 12 and Cys 201

|Animal A Km|
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.
