Specificity of FDG uptake in BJAB, OCI-LY3 and SU-DHL-6 cells. Cells were incubated without inhibitors or with 2 mM 2-DG, 5 μM cytochalasin B or 10 μM phloretin for 24 h or with 50 μM CoCl2 for 30 min and 100 kBq of FDG for 30 min. Cell-bound radioactivity was normalized to protein concentration determined from a parallel sample and expressed as % of untreated control, mean ± standard deviation from fourfold determinations; Asterisks indicates significant decrease or increase (p < 0.05, Student’s t test)

|Description||Phloretin is a dihydrochalcone found in apple tree leaves, which shows beneficial effects on diabetes.|
Phloretin is a dihydrochalcone found in the bark of pear (Pyrus communis), apple, cherry and other fruit trees. Phloretin inhibits the active transport of glucose into cells by SGLT1 and SGLT2, though the inhibition is weaker than by its glycoside phlorizin.  Orally consumed phlorizin is nearly entirely converted into phloretin by hydrolytic enzymes in the small intestine. An important effect of this is the inhibition of glucose absorption by the small intestine and the inhibition of renal glucose reabsorption.   Phloretin also inhibits a variety of urea transporters. It induces urea loss and diuresis when coupled with high protein diets.

* 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 (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × 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.
Answers to questions you may have can be found in the inhibitor handling instructions. Topics include how to prepare stock solutions, how to store inhibitors, and issues that need special attention for cell-based assays and animal experiments.
