Product Description

Biological Activity

Description (-)-Blebbistatin is a cell-permeable inhibitor for non muscle myosin II ATPase with IC50 of ~2 μM in cell-free assays, does not inhibit myosin light chain kinase, inhibits contraction of the cleavage furrow without disrupting mitosis or contractile ring assembly.
Targets non-muscle myosin II ATPases [2]
(Cell-free assay)
IC50 0.5 μM-5 μM
In vitro Blebbistatin, inhibits cytokinesis, alters the smooth movement of fish keratocytes and inhibits the spontaneous blebbing of a cell line lacking filamin. Blebbistatin is shown to inhibit the enzymatic activities of HMM fragments of nonmuscle myosin IIA, nonmuscle myosin IIB and of rabbit skeletal muscle myosin S1, but not smooth muscle myosin[1] Blebbistatin rapidly and reversibly inhibits Mg-ATPase activity and in vitro motility of non-muscle myosin IIA and IIB for several species, while poorly inhibiting smooth muscle myosin (IC50 = 80 μM). Blebbistatin potently inhibits Dictyostelium myosin II, but poorly inhibits Acanthamoeba myosin II. Blebbistatin does not inhibit representative myosin superfamily members from classes I, V, and X. [2] Blebbistatin does not compete with nucleotide binding to the skeletal muscle myosin subfragment-1. The inhibitor preferentially binds to the ATPase intermediate with ADP and phosphate bound at the active site, and it slows down phosphate release. Blebbistatin interferes neither with binding of myosin to actin nor with ATP-induced actomyosin dissociation. Instead, it blocks the myosin heads in a products complex with low actin affinity. [3]

Protocol(Only for Reference)

Kinase Assay: [2]

Actin-activated MgATPase assay Actin-activated MgATPase activity is measured using an NADH-coupled assay in a Beckman DU 640 spectrophotometer. Blebbistatin [a racemic mixture of the (+) and (-) enantiomers] is added from stocks dissolved in DMSO and the DMSO concentration is maintained at a constant concentration of 5% in all samples.

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
