Vincristine sulfate is an inhibitor of polymerization of microtubules by binding to tubulin with IC50 of 32 μM in a cell-free assay.
2 Customer Reviews
Plk inhibitor cooperates with chemotherapeutic agents. Conditional patched mutant tumor cells were treated with increasing concentrations of the chemotherapeutic agents vincristine alone or in combination with 10 nMol/L BI-2536. Cells were cultured for 48 hours, pulsed with 3H-Td, and harvested for analysis of 3H-Td incorporation at 66 hours.

|Description||Vincristine sulfate is an inhibitor of polymerization of microtubules by binding to tubulin with IC50 of 32 μM in a cell-free assay.|
Vincristine inhibits net addition of tubulin dimers at assembly ends of steady-state microtubules with Ki of 85 nM.  At low concentrations, Vincristine stabilizes the spindle apparatus resulting in failure of the chromosomes to segregate leading to metaphase arrest and inhibition of mitosis. At higher concentrations, Vincristine may disrupt and induce total depolymerization of microtubules.  Vincristine induces apoptosis in tumor cells and inhibits SH-SY5Y cell proliferation with IC50 of 0.1 μM. Vincristine induces mitotic arrest and promots the expression of caspase-3 and -9 and cyclin B, while decreasing the expression of cyclin D.  Vincristine induced neurotoxicity is caused by interference with microtubule function, which results in blockage of axonal transport and thus in axonal degeneration. 
|In vivo||Vincristine (3 mg/kg) administrated by a single i.p. injection to mice bearing bilateral subcutaneous xenografts Rh12 or Rh18, induces mean growth delay of >120 and >52 day, and repopulating fractions of 0.06% and 5%, respectively.  Vincristine acts on subcutaneous colon 38 tumors in mice by host cell-mediated vascular effects as well as by direct tubulin-mediated cytotoxicity. Vincristine (5 mg/kg) reduces tumor blood flow of tumors by nearly 75% . |

* 1 mg/ml means slightly soluble or insoluble.
* 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.
