|Description||PluriSIn #1 is an inhibitor of the stearoyl-coA desaturase 1 (SCD1), which is able to selectively eliminate hPSCs.|
PluriSIns #1 has a robust, rapid, and selective cytotoxic effect toward hPSCs. Apoptosis is the central cell death mechanism activated by PluriSIn #1. PluriSIn #1 leads to ER stress in hPSCs. PluriSIn #1 (20 μM) induces ~30% decrease in protein synthesis in hPSCs. PluriSIn #1 exposure induces a ~65% decrease in stearoyl-coA desaturase (SCD1) activity in hPSCs. PluriSIn #1 (20 μM) prevents teratoma gormation from undifferentiated hPSCs PluriSIns also inhibits mPSCs and hinders mouse embryonic development. 
SCD1 activity assays:Cells are plated in 6-well plates at a density of 50k to 100k cells per well. 24 h later, 20 μM PluriSIn #1 or 0.2% DMSO-control are added to the cells. After 12 h of incubation at 37 ℃, 5% CO2, the old medium is removed, cells are washed with PBS, and new medium containing 2.3 μM of 0.75 UCi [1-14C] Stearic Acid is added. The cells are incubated for up to 4 h at 37 ℃, 5% CO2. After the incubation period, the medium is discarded and the cells are washed 3 times with 2 mL of PBS. 2 mL of the mixture n-hexane: isopropanol (3:2 v:v) are added, and the cells are incubated for 30 min at 37 ℃, 5% CO2. 2 mL Folch solution (chloroform: methanol,2:1,v:v) are subsequently added. The liquid is transferred to tubes for phase partition by adding 1 mL water. The lower organic phase is evaporated and used for lipid saponification and TLC separation of the free [1-14C] Stearic Acid (substrate) and [1-14C] Oleic Acid (formed product). Lipids extracted from the cells are applied to TLC plates previously immersed in 10% NO3 Ag and activated at 120℃x60 min. Unlabeled stearic and oleic acid are added to each application point as carriers and as internal standards for identification. The plates are run with a solvent mixture of Chloroform:MeOH:AcH:DDW (90:8:1:0.8). The free fatty acids are detected by U.V. after spraying the TLC with a 2',7',dichlorofluorescein solution. The spots corresponding to stearic and oleic acid are scraped and the radioactivity counted in a sc intillating counter. SCD1 desaturase activity is calculated from the percent conversion of substrate to product and the conversion to pmol/min/106 cells.

* 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.
