|Description||Nutlin-3b is a p53/MDM2 antagonist or inhibitor with IC50 value of 13.6 μM, 150-fold less potent (+)-enantiomer of Nutlin-3 as in comparison with opposite (-)-enantiomer Nutlin-3a.|
Nutlin-3b is useful as a negative control s for non-MDM2-related cellular activities. Nutlin-3a induces the expression of MDM2 and p21 (but not p53) only in cells with wild-type p53. Nutlin-3b has no effect regardless of the p53 status of the cells. Only the active enantiomer Nutlin-3a shows a potent antiproliferative activity and clear separation of potency between the cells harboring wild-type p53 and those harboring mutant p53. The potency of Nutlin-3b is much lower in the wild-type p53 cells and nearly identical to the potency of Nutlin-3a against the mutant p53 cells. After 48 hours of exposure to the Nutlin-3a, 45% of the cell population became TUNEL positive, but cells treated with the Nutlin-3b are indistinguishable from the untreated controls. 
Biacore study:Competition assay is performed on a Biacore S51. A Series S Sensor chip CM5 is utilized for the immobilization of a PentaHis antibody for capture of the His-tagged p53. The level of capture is ~200 response units (1 response unit corresponds to 1 pg of protein per mm 2). The concentration of MDM2 protein is kept constant at 300 nM. Nutlin-3 is dissolved in DMSO at 10 mM and further diluted to make a concentration series of Nutlin-3 in each MDM2 test sample. The assay is run at 25°C in running buffer (10 mM Hepes, 0.15 M NaCl, 2% DMSO). MDM2-p53 binding in the presence of Nutlin-3 is calculated as a percentage of binding in the absence of Nutlin-3 and IC50 is calculated

* 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.
