SIS3, a novel specific inhibitor of Smad3, inhibits TGF-β and activin signaling by suppressing Smad3 phosphorylation without affecting the MAPK/p38, ERK, or PI3-kinase signaling pathways.
1 Customer Review
Cultured cardiac fibroblasts infected with vector lentiviruses or EphrinB2 overexpressing lentiviruses were stimulated with specific antagonist against Stat3 (Stattic, 2.5μM) and/or Smad3 (SIS3, 1μM), respectively. The expression level of α-SMA was quantified via western blotting. In vitro experiments repeat 3 times, *P<0.05, **P<0.01.

|Description||SIS3, a novel specific inhibitor of Smad3, inhibits TGF-β and activin signaling by suppressing Smad3 phosphorylation without affecting the MAPK/p38, ERK, or PI3-kinase signaling pathways.|
Addition of SIS3 attenuates the effects of TGF-β1 by reducing the transcriptional activity. SIS3 also inhibits the myofibroblast differentiation of fibroblasts by TGF-β1. SIS3 completely diminishes the constitutive phosphorylation of Smad3 as well as the up-regulated type I collagen expression in scleroderma fibroblasts, thus abolishes the ECM overexpression in the TGF-β1-treated normal dermal fibroblasts and scleroderma fibroblasts in vitro.
|In vivo||SIS3 inhibits Smad3 activation in streptozotocin(STZ)-induced diabetic nephropathy in Tie2-Cre;Loxp-EGFP mice. It also reduces AGE-induced EndoMT and decreases EndoMT in STZ-induced diabetic nephropathy in Tie2-Cre;Loxp-EGFP mice. SIS3 significantly reduces collagen IV and fibronectin expression in the glomeruli and tubulointerstitium of STZ-injected Tie2-Cre;Loxp-EGFP mice, suggesting that SIS3 retards the early development of STZ-induced diabetic glomerulosclerosis and tubulointerstitial fibrosis. However, SIS3 administration does not reduce proteinuria.|

* 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.
