|Description||Chelerythrine is a potent, selective antagonist of PKC with IC50 of 0.66 μM.|
|Features||Chelerythrine is at least 100-fold more selective for PKCs than for other kinases.|
Chelerythrine interacts with the catalytic domain of PKC, is a competitive inhibitor with respect to the phosphate acceptor (histone IIIS) with Ki value of 0.7 μM and a non-competitive inhibitor with respect to ATP. Chelerythrine shows potent cytotoxic effects against L-1210 cells with IC50 of 0.53 μM. Chelerythrine does not alter any activity of PKA, TPK and Ca/CM-PK, and the Chelerythrine inhibitory effect on PKC activity does not vary among the various substrates including GS, MLC, MBP and Fibrinogen.  Chelerythrine inhibits PKC activity in crude cell extracts from SQ-20B cells in a dose dependent manner. Chelerythrine decreases cell viability as determined by the MTT assay in a dose-dependent manner in SCC35, JSQ3, SQ20B and SCC61 cells.  Chelerythrine chloride (5 μM) suppresses VEGF-induced expression of ICAM-1, VCAM-1, and E-selectin in HUVECs. Chelerythrine chloride (5 μM) suppresses VEGF-induced NF-κB activity in HUVECs. Chelerythrine chloride (5 μM) all suppresses basal and VEGF-induced leukocyte adhesiveness in HUVECs.  Chelerythrine (6 mM-30 mM) rapidly induces pyknosis, shrinkage and subsequent cell death in cardiac myocytes. Chelerythrine(30 μM)-induced myocyte death is accompanied by nuclear fragmentation and activation of caspase-3 and -9 in primary culture of neonatal rat ventricular myocytes. Chelerythrine (10 μM) causes cytochrome c release from mitochondria, suggesting that ROS mediates chelerythrine-induced cytochrome c release in cardiac myocytes.  Chelerythrine displaces the fluorescently labeled BH3 domain peptide from a recombinant GST-BcLXL fusion protein with IC50 of 1.5 μM. Chelerythrine at 2.5 μM and 5 μM for 16 hours induces a substantial decrease in mitochondrial potential as indicated by an increase in JC-1 green fluorescence in human neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells. Chelerythrine (5 μM) also induces the appearance of sub-G1 DNA that is indicative of apoptosis in SH-SY5Y cells. Chelerythrine (10 μM) induces mitochondrial potential change, CytC release from the mitochondria in SH-SY5Y cells. 
Chelerythrine (5 mg/kg i.p.) results in tumor growth delay in mice bearing SQ-20B xenografts.  Chelerythrine (5 mg/kg) treatment signiﬁcantly increases TUNEL-positive nuclei in the myocardium as well as cleaved forms of caspase-3 and -9 in adult rat. 
assay for protein kinase C:The purified protein kinase C is prepared from rat brain. Briefly, the incubation mixture (200 μL) contains 20 mM Tris/HCl buffer (pH 7.5), 10 mM MgCl2, 200 μg/mL histones, micelles makes with 700 μM phosphatidyl serine and 180 μM 1,2-dioleine in 0.3% triton X100, 0.2 mM CaCl2, 100 μM ATP, [γ-32P ]-ATP (105 dpm), Chelerythrine to be tested (solubilized in dimethylsulphoxyde) and the enzyme (0.5 μg protein). After incubation at 30℃ for 3 minutes, the reaction is terminated by the addition of 3 mL of 20% trichloroacetic acid. Acid-precipitable materials are collected on Whatman GFE filters and extensively washed with ice-cold 20% trichloroacetic acid. The radioactivity on the filters is measured using a liquid scintillation counter. Protein kinase C activity is corrected for non-specific activity by assaying in the absence of micelles and CaCl2.

1.Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2.Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
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)
*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.
