(D) Ubiquitination level of Htt protein was detected by immunoprecipitation with the GFP antibody and western blotting with the ubiquitin antibody from GFP-Htt(Q74)/PC12 cells treated as (C). Total Htt protein level served as the loading control. (E) GFP-Htt(Q74)/PC12 cells were treated as (C).Soluble Htt protein was detected by western blotting and quantified. Mean ± SEM, n = 5, ***p < 0.001 compared to the control group. (F) GO binding assay of GFP-Htt(Q74)/PC12 cells treated with GO, followed by Western blotting (left panel) with the ubiquitin antibody and Coomassie Brilliant Blue staining (right panel). L is the lysate before precipitation, while S and P were the supernatant and the pellet, respectively, after the precipitation. (G) Ubiquitination levels of Htt protein in supernatant lysate prepared from GO treated GFP-Htt(Q74)/PC12 cells with or without GO binding for 30 min.

|Description||PYR-41 is the first cell-permeable inhibitor of ubiquitin-activating enzyme E1, with no activity at E2.|
PYR-41 (50 μM) inhibits activity of ubiquitin-activating enzyme E1 by over 90%. PYR-41 could be a target for nucleophilic attack and potentially reacts with the active site cysteine of E1. PYR-41 efficiently blocks cyclin E degradation. PYR-41 decreases the level of E1fUb thioesters in cells with a IC50 of between 10 and 25 μM, and prevents proteasome inhibitor–induced accumulation of ubiquitylated proteins. PYR-41 increases total sumoylation in cells and in cell harboring temperature-sensitive E1. PYR-41 is able to inhibit both proteasome-dependent and proteasome-independent activities of ubiquitylation. PYR-41 (50 μM) attenuates 1 ng/mL IL-1α-mediated nuclear factor-κB activation by >60% through preventing the downstream ubiquitylation and proteasomal degradation of IκBα. PYR-41 inhibits degradation of p53 and activates the transcriptional activity of p53, which enable its differentially killing transformed p53-expressing cells.  PYR-41 blocks ubiquitination reactions but paradoxically leads to the accumulation of high MW ubiquitinated proteins. PYR-41 also has equal or greater inhibitory activity against several deubiquitinases (DUBs) in intact cells and purified USP5 in vitro. PYR-41 also mediates cross-linking of specific protein kinases (Bcr-Abl, Jak2) to inhibit their signaling activity.

* 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.
