Active Stat5a/b increases nuclear levels of antiandrogen-liganded AR in PC-3 cells. PC-3 cells were infected with AdAR, AdPrlR and AdWTStat5a, serum-starved for 12 h, and pretreated with 1 nM DHT, 10 μM Bicalutamide (Bic), 10 μM Flutamide (Flu) or 10 μM MDV3100 (MDV) for 1 h before stimulation with 10 nM Prl for 30 min, where indicated. Immunostaining depicts DAPI, Stat5a/b, AR and merged imaging of Stat5a/b and AR.

Effects of flutamide on Cd-induced Cx43 protein level and cell proliferation. (A) AR and (B) Cx43 were analyzed throughWestern blot. Results are reported as mean ± SD fromthree replicates. (C) Effect of flutamide on Cd-induced cell proliferation at 48 h, determined through an Edu test. *P<0.05 and ** P <0.01 vs. DMSO group; #P< 0.05 and ##P <0.01 vs. DMSO + Cd. AR, androgen receptor; DMSO, dimethyl sulfoxide; NS, no statistical significance.

|Description||Flutamide is an antiandrogen drug, with its active metablolite binding at androgen receptor with Ki values of 55 nM, and primarily used to treat prostate cancer.|
Flutamide (Eulexin) is an antiandrogen drug. Flutamide-OH, the active metabolite of flutamide, directly binds at rat anterior pituitary androgen receptor with Ki values of 55 nM.  Flutamide does not affect the proliferation of an androgen-sensitive clone of the mouse mammary carcinoma Shionogi SC-l 15 cells in culture, shows only antiandrogenic effect, but not androgenic effect.  Flutamide provides treatment for prostate cancer when used along with leuprolide. 
|In vivo||Flutamide causes a markedly reduction in rat ventral prostate weight from 319 mg to 245 mg. A combination of flutamide and LHRH agonist induces an additive effect with a decrease in prostate weight to 101 mg, and an marked drop in prostatic ODC activity. |
Androgen Receptor Assay:Aliquots of 100 μl cytosol are incubated at 0-4°C for 18 h with 100 μl of the indicated saturating concentration of [3H]T in the presence or absence of increasing concentrations of nonlabeled T, DHT, flutamide (FLU) or flutamide-OH (FLU-OH). At the end of the incubation, free and bound T are separated by the addition of 200 μl dextran-coated charcoal (1 % charcoal, 0.1% dextran T-70, 0.1% gelatin, 1.5 mM EDTA and 50 mM Tris (pH 7.4)) for 15 min before centrifugation at 2300 × g for another 15 min at 0-4°C. Aliquots (350 μl) of the supernatant are transferred to scintillation vials with 10 ml of an aqueous counting solution before counting in a Beckman LS 330 counter.

* 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.
