Ferrostatin-1 (Fer-1) is a potent and selective inhibitor of ferroptosis with EC50 of 60 nM.
1 Customer Review
Inhibition of HSF1-dependent HSPB1 expression increased erastin-induced ferroptosis. Effects of deferoxamine (100 μM), ferrostain-1 (1 μM), Z-VAD-FMK (10 μM), necrostain 1 s (Nec-1 s, 10 μM) and cyclosporin A (CsA, 5 μM) on erastin-induced growth inhibition at 24 h in indicated HeLa (j) and U2OS (k) cells (n =3, *P<0.05 versus erastin group).

|Description||Ferrostatin-1 (Fer-1) is a potent and selective inhibitor of ferroptosis with EC50 of 60 nM.|
Ferrostatin-1 (2 μM) prevents erastin-induced ferroptosis in cancer cells, as well as glutamate-induced cell death in postnatal rat brain slices. Ferrostatin-1 is a lipid ROS scavenger, with the N-cyclohexyl moiety serving as a lipo-philic anchor within biological membranes. Ferrostatin-1 does not inhibit extracellular signal -regulated kinase (ERK) phos-phorylation or arrest the proliferation of HT-1080 cells, suggesting that it does not inhibit the MEK/ERK pathway, chelate iron, or inhibit protein synthesis. Ferrostatin-1 does, however, prevent erastin-induced accumulation of cytosolic and lipid ROS. Ferrostatin-1 readily oxidizes the stable radical 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) under cell-free conditions.

* 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.
