|Description||MK-0752 is a moderately potent γ-secretase inhibitor, which reduces Aβ40 production with IC50 of 5 nM. Phase 1/2.|
|Features||A moderately potent γ-secretase inhibitor.|
MK-0752 is identified as a moderately potent γ-secretase inhibitor, which reduces Aβ40 in a dose-dependent manner with an IC50 of 5 nM in human SH-SY5Y cells.  In vitro, MK-0752 blocks Notch-intracellular domain (ICD) cleavage and its subsequent nuclear translocation. 
|In vivo||MK-0752 (240 mg/kg) reduces the generation of newly produced Aβ with 90% decrease of AUV in the brain of rhesus monkeys. In addition, MK-0752 treatment increases levels of Aβ 1-14, Aβ 1-15, and Aβ 1-16 , while decreases levels of Aβ 1-17.  In guinea-pigs, oral administration of MK-0752 (10 mg/kg -30 mg/kg) results in the dose-dependent reduction of Aβ40 in plasma, brain and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) with IC50 of 440 nM in brain. |

* 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.
