|Description||SB431542 is a potent and selective inhibitor of ALK5 with IC50 of 94 nM in a cell-free assay, 100-fold more selective for ALK5 than p38 MAPK and other kinases.|
SB 431542 inhibits the activin type I receptor ALK4 and the nodal type I receptor ALK7, which are responsible for the phosphorylation of Smad2. SB 431542 has little effect on ALK1, ALK2, ALK3, and ALK6, which show phosphorylation of Smad1. SB 431542 is a selective inhibitor of endogenous activin but has no apparent effect on BMP signaling. SB 431542 could induce both Smad2/Smad4- and Smad3/Smad4-dependent transcription.  In A498 cells, SB 431542 inhibits both TGF-β1-induced collagen Iα1 and PAI-1 mRNA with IC50 of 60 nM and 50 nM, respectively. In addition, SB 431542 inhibits production of TGF-β1-induced fibronectin mRNA and protein with IC50 of 62 nM and 22 nM, respectively.  SB 431542 blocks the TGF-β-mediated growth factors, including PDGF-A, FGF-2 and HB-EGF, leading to an increase in proliferation of MG63 cells. SB 431542 also inhibits TGF-β-induced c-Myc and p21 WAF1/CIP1.  SB 431542 significantly suppresses TGF-β-induced G1 arrest, leading to accumulation of cells in the S phase of the cell cycle in FET, RIE, and Mv1Lu cells. SB 431542 also inhibits TGF-β-induced epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) in NMuMG and PANC-1 cells.  SB 431542 significantly elevates the expression of CD86 in BM-DCs and that of CD83 within CD11c+ cells suppressed by TGF-β. SB 431542 is able to induce NK activity through functional maturation and IL-12 production of human DCs. 
|In vivo||SB 431542 triggers cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) activities in the colon-26 carcinoma models and is most likely to produce antitumor immunological outcomes through alteration of DC function suppressed by TGF-β. |
|Kinase Assay: ||
Flashplate assay for ALK5:SB 431542 is dissolved in DMSO at a concentration of 10 mM. The kinase domain of TGFβRI, from amino acid 200 to the C-terminus, and the full-length Smad3 protein are expressed as N-terminal glutathion S-transferase (GST) fusion proteins in the baculovirus expression system. Proteins are purified with glutathion Sepharose beads 4B. Basic FlashPlates are coated with 0.1 M sterile filtered sodium bicarbonate, pH 7.6, containing 700 ng of GST-Smad3 per 100 μL. Assay buffer contains 50 mM HEPES (pH 7.4), 5 mM MgCl2, 1 mM CaCl2, 1 mM DTT, 100 mM GTP, 3 μM ATP plus 0.5 μCi/well ɤ33P-ATP, and 85 ng of GST-ALK5 with or without SB 431542. Plates are incubated at 30 °C for 3 hours. The assay buffer is removed by aspiration, and the plate is counted on a Packard TopCount 96-well scintillation plate reader.

* 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.
