Genistein, a phytoestrogen found in soy products, is a highly specific inhibitor of protein tyrosine kinase (PTK) which blocks the mitogenic effect mediated by EGF on NIH-3T3 cells with IC50 of 12μM or by insulin with IC50 of 19 μM.

|Description||Genistein, a phytoestrogen found in soy products, is a highly specific inhibitor of protein tyrosine kinase (PTK) which blocks the mitogenic effect mediated by EGF on NIH-3T3 cells with IC50 of 12μM or by insulin with IC50 of 19 μM.|
Genistein is an ATP competitive inhibitor. Genistein inhibits tyrosine phosphorylation in isolated enzyme and receptor preparations and in whole cells including platelets, lymphocytes and a variety of cultured cells. It also inhibits EGF-stimulated phosphorylation in cultured cells as well as inhibition of Topo II (topoisomerase II). Genistein inhibits EGF-stimulated tyrosine phosphorylation in cultured A431 epidermoid carcinoma cells. Inhibition is competitive with ATP and noncompetitive with substrate.  Genistein blocks the mitogenic effect mediated by EGF, insulin and thrombin on NIH-3T3 cells. Genistein also acts as an agonist at the GPR30 receptor and binds to PPARγ and estrogen receptors. Genistein also binds to PPARγ, acting as an agonist at this receptor with Ki of 5.7 μM. 
|In vivo||Genistein has chemopreventive effects on breast, prostate, and other endocrine-dependent tumors in adult animals. Genistein in the diet reduced the incidence of poorly differentiated prostatic adenocarcinomas in a dose-dependent manner and down-regulated androgen receptor, estrogen receptor-alpha, progesterone receptor, epidermal growth factor receptor, insulin-like growth factor-I, and extracellular signal-regulated kinase-1 but not estrogen receptor-beta and transforming growth factor-alpha mRNA expressions. Dietary genistein protects against mammary and prostate cancers by regulating specific sex steroid receptors and growth factor signaling pathways. Genistein combined with prostate tumor irradiation causes greater inhibition of primary tumor growth and increases control of spontaneous metastasis to para-aortic lymph nodes, increasing mouse survival. Paradoxically, treatment with genistein alone increases metastasis to lymph nodes. |

* 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.
