  • Trypsin inhibition dose-response curves in the absence (black circles) and presence (red triangles) of detergent for (A) emodin.

    ACS Chem Biol, 2015, 10(4):978-88. . Emodin purchased from Selleck.

    Bioactive compounds inhibit recombinant HDAC activity. Recombinant HDACs were incubated with nonflavonoids (A) for 2 h prior to the addition of cell permeable HDAC substrates. Nonflavonoids (A) emodin inhibited activity of most classes I, IIa, and IIb HDAC isoforms.

  • A549 and H1299 cells were incubated with emodin at 0, 20, 40, 60 and 80 μmol/l for 72 h. The apoptosis of A549 and H1299 cells was detected by Hoechst staining. The Hoechst-positive cells (white arrows pointed) were recognized as apoptotic. The lower panel presents the apoptotic rate of A549 and H1299 cells incubated with emodin at different concentrations according to the results of Hoechst staining. *P<0.05.

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.
