|Description||Econazole Nitrate (NSC 243115) is a Ca2+ channel blocker, used as an antifungal medicine that fights infections caused by fungus.|
Econazole nitrate is an effective inducer of micronuclei over a narrow dose range in cell lines V79, XEM2 and XEMd-MZ (expresses CYP1A2).  Econazole nitrate inhibits the proliferation of MCF-7 cells in a time- and dose-dependent manner by MTT method and colony forming assay. Econazole nitrate results in typical characteristics of apoptosis including the morphological changes and DNA fragmentation in MCF-7 cells. Econazole nitrate results in the decrease expression of procaspase-3, procaspase-9 and bcl-2.  Econazole inhibits ADP-ribose-activated currents in HEK-293 cells expressing recombinant human TRPM2 (hTRPM2). Econazole produces an essentially complete inhibition of the TRPM2-mediated current.  Econazole (25-50 mM) partially inhibits capacitative Ca2+ entry induced by cyclopiazonic acid, another endoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ pump inhibitor. Econazole induces Ca2+ influx via two separate pathways: one is sensitive to La3+, the other is not.  Econazole reversibly inhibits (Bu)(2)cAMP-stimulated progesterone production in a dose- and time-dependent manner in MA-10 cells without affecting total protein synthesis or P450(scc) and 3beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3beta-HSD) enzyme expression or activity.  Econazole is a store-operated Ca2+ channel antagonist which induces cytotoxic cell death of leukemia. Econazole (5-20 mM) arrests human colon cancer cells at the G0/G1 phase of the cell cycle. Econazole induces COLO 205 cells apoptosis evidenced by ladder formation in DNA fragmentation assay and sub-G1 peak.

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 SDS / 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 SDS / 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.
