|Description||Thioguanine, a purine antimetabolite, inhibits DNMT1 activity through ubiquitin-targeted degradation, used in the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, autoimmune disorders (e.g., Crohn's disease, rheumatoid arthritis) and organ transplant recipients.|
Thioguanine incorporation alters the DNA cleavage induced by topoisomerase II in the presence and absence of etoposide.  6-Thioguanine alters the structure and lowers the thermal stability of duplex DNA, but duplex DNA can be formed in the presence of 6SG.  6-Thioguanine induced apopotosis is similarly observed in both mismatch repair-proficient and -deficient HCT116 and HeLa cells.  Thioguanine integrates into DNA and unlike the canonical DNA bases, it is a strong UVA chromophore with an absorbance maximum at 342 nm. 6-Thioguanine is a photosensitizer and a source of reactive oxygen species.  In canine lymphoma cells, Thioguanine significantly decreases DNMT1 protein and global DNA methylation. 
|In vivo||Thioguanine is as efficient as a PARP inhibitor in selectively killing BRCA2-defective tumors in a xenograft model. 6-Thioguanine efficiently kills such BRCA1-defective PARP inhibitor-resistant tumors. 6-Thioguanine could kill cells and tumors that have gained resistance to PARP inhibitors or cisplatin through genetic reversion of the BRCA2 gene. |

|In vitro||DMSO||17 mg/mL warmed (101.68 mM)|
|Water||slightly soluble or insoluble|
|Ethanol||slightly soluble or insoluble|
|In vivo||Add solvents individually and in order:
* 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.
