(A) and (B) SW1116 and LOVO cells were plated, treated for 48 h with decitabine (DAC) and gefitinib (GEF) either alone or in combination, and the expression levels of AKT, mTOR, S6K, and phosphorylation were determined by Western blot analysis as described under Methods. Expression of β-actin served as a loading control. The data are representative of three independent experiments.

(A) and (B) SW1116 and LOVO cells were cultured in control conditions (DMSO) or in the presence of the indicated concentrations of decitabine (DAC) and gefitinib (GEF), alone or in combination, for 48 h. And then cells were stained with Annexin V-FITC and propidium iodide (PI) and analyzed by flow cytometry. This experiment was done in triplicate and representative diagrams of Annexin V-FITC assays are shown.

|Description||Decitabine is a DNA methyltransferase inhibitor, incorporating into DNA and resulting in hypomethylation of DNA and intra-S-phase arrest of DNA replication. It is used to treat myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).|
Decitabine inhibits cell growth in a dose and time-dependent manner with IC50 of approximately 438 nM and 43.8 nM for 72 hours and 96 hours exposure in HL-60 and KG1a leukemic cells, respectively.  A recent study shows that Decitabine exhibits high anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic activity against anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), and inhibits [3H]–thymidine uptake in KARPAS-299 cells with EC50 of 0.49 μM. 
|In vivo||In a ALK+ KARPAS-299 murine xenograft model, Decitabine at a dose of 2.5 mg/kg causes increased apoptosis and reduced proliferation of tumor cells, and also results in demethylation of tumor suppressor p16INK4A. |
DNA synthesis assay :The rate of DNA synthesis is measured by the incorporation of radioactive thymidine into DNA. HL-60 and KG1a cells are suspended in 2 mL RPMI medium containing 10% fetal serum in 6-well (35 mm diameter) dishes and incubated with different concentrations of corresponding drugs for 48 hours (drugs are added simultaneously). At 48 hours, 0.5 μCi [3H] thymidine (6.7 Ci/mmol) is added to each well and incubated for an additional 24 hours. The cells are placed on GF/C glass fiber filters (2.4 cm diameter), washed with cold 0.9% NaCl, 5% cold trichloroacetic acid and ethanol. The filters containing the DNA are then dried, placed in EcoLite scintillation liquid (ICN) and the radioactivity measured using Beckman LS 6000IC scintillation counter. The IC50 is defined as the concentration of drug that inhibits 50% of the DNA synthesis of the leukemic cell lines from the dose–response curve.

* 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.
