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)
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

Solubility (25°C)

In vitro DMSO 58 mg/mL (198.4 mM)
Water <1 mg/mL
Ethanol <1 mg/mL

* 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.

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

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).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

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 )

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.
