  • Vitamin D analogs induce adenylate kinase release from S. mutans planktonic cells. S. mutans UA159 cultures were grown in TY medium + 1% (w/v) glucose to exponential phase and used to inoculate fresh medium containing ciprofloxacin (positive control), DMSO (negative control), alfacalcidol, calcitriol, or doxercalciferol at 16, 32, and 64 μg/mL for 4h. Cell lysis was detected using the AK assay as described in Materials and Methods. Data is represented as relative luminescence units (RLU) normalized to background (DMSO) and is representative of three replicate cultures performed in triplicate.

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:

Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*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).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

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 )

  • C1

* 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.
