|Description||Orlistat (Ro 18-0647, Tetrahydrolipstatin) is a general lipase inhibitor with IC50 of 122 ng/ml for PL from human duodenal juice. Orlistat treatment reduces proliferation, induces apoptosis and arrests cell cycle.|
Orlistat, an inhibitor of lipases and fatty acid synthase, is used orally for long-term treatment of obesity. Orlistat shows antiproliferative activity against cancer cells in vitro. It has been found to augment pro-apoptotic NOXA protein.
|In vivo||Orlistat, administered by oral route, is minimally absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract and is able to prevent the absorption of a large percentage of lipids, thereby reducing lipid supply from outside sources. Because of its extremely low oral bioavailability, the effects of Orlistat are largely confined to the gastrointestinal tract, where it inactivates pancreatic lipase. Therefore, the formulation and route of delivery would have to be changed to treat tumors of the breast, prostate, and so on. Orlistat halts tumor cell proliferation, induces tumor cell apoptosis, and inhibits the growth of PC-3 tumors in nude mice. A pharmacokinetic analysis of Orlistat (155 mg/kg) administered by i.p. injection showed peak blood levels to be ∼10 μM 2 h after dosing (data not shown). Beyond this time, blood levels of the drug decayed rapidly.|
|In vitro||DMSO||99 mg/mL (199.7 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
5% DMSO+40% 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.

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.
