|Description||Aciclovir is a synthetic nucleoside analogue active against herpesviruses.|
Acyclovir sensitivity of herpes simplex virus isolates is determined in a plaque-reduction assay in Vero cells. IC50 Values are consistently 2-3 fold lower in B2 compared with the H strain of Vero cells. HSV Type 2 strains are 2-10-fold less sensitive than Type 1 strains.
|In vivo||low-dose oral acyclovir may be effective in the prevention of HSV infection during OKT3 treatment of seropositive patients. Continuation of acyclovir prophylaxis for two to four weeks following the conclusion of OKT3 therapy may prevent occurrence of delayed infections.|
|In vitro||DMSO||45 mg/mL (199.82 mM)|
* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
