2 Customer Reviews
The copy numbers of the intracellular viral DNA were directly extracted from cells and were quantified by qPCR using primers specific for the KSHV ORF73 gene. Then each sample was normalized to the amount of the GAPDH gene (C), CDV (20 µM) was used as a positive control. CDV:Cidofovir.
Viruses 2015, 7, 2268-2287. . Cidofovir purchased from Selleck.
Triptolide reduces lytic and latent replication of KSHV in BCBL-1 cells. Uninduced and induced BCBL-1 cells were treated with vehicle control or indicated concentrations of triptolide for 48 h. The whole cell supernatants, genomic DNA and lysates were prepared. (A) The copy numbers of the intracellular viral DNA were quantified by qRT-PCR, each sample was normalized to the amount of the GAPDH gene. *p<0.05, compared to control.

|Description||Cidofovir suppresses virus replication by selective inhibition of viral DNA synthesis.|
Cidofovir inhibits human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection in cultured cells. Cidofovir is inhibitory to CMV plaque formation even when added to the cells at 48 hr post infection with IC50 of 0.9 μg/mL for Davis and 1.6 μg/mL for AD-169 strains,respectively.  Cidofovir also inhibits herpes simplex virus infection. In addition, Cidofovir blocks cell fusion induced by HSV-1 in monkey kidney cells and blocks the expression of HSV-l-specific proteins and the synthesis of viral DNA. 
|In vivo||Cidofovir (5 mg/kg/day) subcutaneously for 5 days significantly reduces average virus infectivity titer in blood, spleen, lung and salivary gland in infected guinea pigs. Cidofovir significantly reduces lymphocytosis and average tissue indexe of spleen in infected animals. . Cidofovir suppresses all manifestations (skin lesions, paralysis of the hind legs, and mortality) of hairless mice infected intracutaneously with HSV-1 or HSV-2. The most remarkable feature of Cidofovir is that a single administration of the compound, even as late as 4 days after infection, conferees significant protection against HSV-1 or HSV-2 infection.  Cidofovir inhibits growth of the highly aggressive melanoma tumor arising from mouse melanoma B16 cells grafted subcutaneously in C57B16/J mice. |

* 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 (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.
