For research use only.
CAS No. 105628-07-7
Fasudil(HA-1077), a potent and selective inhibitor of Rho kinase, displays less potent inhibiton over PKA, PKG, PKC and MLCK with Ki of 1.6, 1.6, 3.3, and 36 μM in cell-free assays, respectively. Fasudil is also a calcium channel blocker.

|Description||Fasudil(HA-1077), a potent and selective inhibitor of Rho kinase, displays less potent inhibiton over PKA, PKG, PKC and MLCK with Ki of 1.6, 1.6, 3.3, and 36 μM in cell-free assays, respectively. Fasudil is also a calcium channel blocker.|
Fasudil is a class of calcium antagonists. Fasudil produces a competitive inhibition of the Ca2+-induced contraction of the depolarized rabbit aorta. Fasudil is able to inhibit contractile responses to KCl, phenylephnne (PHE) and prostaglandin (PG) F2a.  Fasudil also exhibits vasodilator actions by inhibition of 5-hydroxytryptamine, noradrenaline, histamine, angiotensin, and dopamine induced spiral strips contraction.  Fasudil induces disorganization of actin stress fiber and cell migration inhibition.  Fasudil inhibits hepatic stellate cells spreading, the formation of stress fibers, and expression of α-SMA with concomitant suppression of cell growth, but does not induce apoptosis. Fasudil suppresses the LPA-induced phosphorylation of ERK1/2, JNK and p38 MAPK. 
|In vivo||Intra-coronary injection of Fasudil to dogs (30 μg i.a.) produces an approximate 50% increase in CBF. Fasudil (0.01, 0.03, 0.1 and 0.3 mg/kg, bolus, i.v.) dose-dependently decreases MBP and increases HR, VBF, CBF, RBF, and FBF. A total dose of 1.0 ng/mL Fasudil increases cardiac output. The infusion of Fasudil i.v. produces a significant fall in MBP, left ventricular systolic pressure and total peripheral resistance with an increase in HR and cardiac output, but without significant changes in right atrial pressure, dP/dt or left ventricular minute work in dogs.  Fasudil administration displays protectable effects on cardiovascular disease and reduces the activation of JNK and attenuates mitochondrial-nuclear translocation of AIF under ischemic injury.  The oral administration of Fasudil (a dosage of 100 mg/kg/day) significantly reduces incidence and mean maximum clinical score of EAE in SJL/J mice immunized with PLP p139-151. Treatment of mice with Fasudil suppresses the proliferative response of splenocytes to the antigen. Oral administration of Fasudil decreases inflammation, demyelination, axonal loss and APP positivein spinal cord of Fasudil-treated mice. |

|In vitro||Water||65 mg/mL (198.27 mM)|
|DMSO||5 mg/mL (15.25 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
For best results, use promptly after mixing.
* 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.

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.
