|Description||MK-1775 is a potent and selective Wee1 inhibitor with IC50 of 5.2 nM in a cell-free assay; hinders G2 DNA damage checkpoint. Phase 2.|
|Features||The first reported Wee1 inhibitor.|
MK-1775 inhibits Wee1 kinase in an ATP-competitive manner. Compared to Wee1, MK-1775 displays 2- to 3-fold less potency against Yes with IC50 of 14 nM, 10-fold less potency against seven other kinases with >80% inhibition at 1 μM, and >100-fold selectivity over human Myt 1, another kinase that inhibits cyclin-dependent kinase 1 (CDC2) by phosphorylation at an alternative site (Thr14). By abrogating the DNA damage checkpoint via blockade of Wee1 activity in WiDr cells bearing mutated p53, MK-1775 treatment inhibits the basal phosphorylation of CDC2 at Tyr15 (CDC2Y15) with EC50 of 49 nM, and suppresses gemcitabine-, carboplatin- or cisplatin-induced phosphorylation of CDC2 and cell cycle arrest in a dose-dependent manner, with EC50 of 82 nM and 81 nM, 180 nM and 163 nM, as well as 159 nM and 160 nM, respectively. MK-1775 treatment alone at 30-100 nM has no significant antiproliferative effect in WiDr and H1299 cells, whereas MK-1775 at 300 nM, sufficient to inhibit Wee1 by >80%, displays moderate but significant antiproliferative effects by 34.1% in WiDr cells and 28.4% in H1299 cells. 
|In vivo||MK-1775 treatment alone at ~20 mg/kg displays minimal antitumor effects against WiDr xenografts in rats with T/C of 69% at day 3. Antitumor efficacy by MK-1775 alone in the nude rat HeLa-luc and TOV21G-shp53 xenograft models is also moderate. |
In vitro kinase assays:Recombinant human Wee1 is used. Kinase reaction is conducted with 10 μM ATP, 1.0 μCi of [γ-33P]ATP, and 2.5 μg of poly(Lys, Tyr) as a substrate in the presence of increasing concentrations of MK-1775 at 30°C for 30 minutes. Radioactivity incorporated into the substrate is trapped on MultiScreen-PH plates and is counted on a liquid scintillation counter.

|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
2% DMSO+30% PEG 300+5% Tween 80+ddH2O
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.
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
How to prepare MK1775 methylcellulose solution? and how to prepare methylcellulose itself? Once make the MK1775 methylcellulose solution, how should i keep it?
MK1775 in 0.5% methylcellulose is a suspension or emulsion, and it is ok to treat mice orally. It is recommended to dissolve methylcellulose in saline. It will take some time to dissolve methylcellulose, and you can vortex it for a while. The MK1775 methylcellulose solution can be stored at 4°C for a week.
