In vitro: WZB117 inhibits glucose transport in human red blood cells. Cancer cell treatment with WZB117 leads to decreases in levels of Glut1 protein, intracellular ATP, and glycolytic enzymes. All these changes are followed by increase in ATP-sensing enzyme AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and declines in cyclin E2 as well as phosphorylated retinoblastoma, resulting in cell-cycle arrest, senescence, and necrosis.
In vivo: Daily intraperitoneal injection of WZB117 at 10mg/kg resultes in 70% reduction in tumor volume of human A549 lung cancer grafted on nude mice.
|Cell lines||Human non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell|
|Preparation method||Cells were treated with compound WZB117 for 24 or 48 hours. WZB117 (10 μmol/L) was used in the experiments unless otherwise noted.|
|Incubation time||24 or 48 h|
|Animal models||BALB/cAJcl-nu/nu mice|
|Body Surface Area (m2)||0.007||0.025||0.15||0.05||0.02||0.5|
|Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by||Animal B Km|
|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.
|Solubility||73 mg/mL in DMSO|

Disufide crosslinks of cystines in proteins can be reduced to cysteine residues by TCEP (tris-(2-carboxyethyl)phosphine). Unlike DTT (dithiothreitol), TCEP does not contain thiols and therefore usually does not need to be removed prior to thiol modification.
Linaclotide is a potent and selective guanylate cyclase C agonist; developed for the treatment of constipation-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (IBS-C) and chronic constipation.
6-Chloropurine is used in the preparation of 9-alkylpurines through alkylation with various substituted alkyl halides in dimethyl sulfoxide.
Lanolin is a wax secreted by the sebaceous glands of wool-bearing animals and used widely in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries.
