|Description||Pralatrexate is an antifolate, and structurally a folate analog. Its IC50 is < 300 nM in some cell lines.|
Pralatrexate and bortezomib exhibits concentration- and time-dependent cytotoxicity against a broad panel of T-lymphoma cell lines. Pralatrexate shows synergism when combined with bortezomib in all cell lines studied. Pralatrexate also induces potent apoptosis and caspase activation when combined with bortezomib across the panel. Pralatrexate significantly modulates the expression of p27, NOXA, HH3, and RFC-1 as assessed by Western blot assays.  Pralatrexate is rationally designed for improved cellular transport via RFC-1, and to have greater intracellular drug retention through the enhanced formation of polyglutamylated conjugates. Pralatrexate is thought to exert its pharmacological effect primarily through inhibition of DHFR, having an IC50 in the picomolar range.  Pralatrexate demonstrates superior intracellular transport via the reduced folate carrier, and increased accumulation within cells by enhanced polyglutamylation. Pralatrexate exhibits antitumor activity that is superior to the activity of other antifolates.  Pralatrexate's enhanced activity relative to methotrexate (MTX) is due to its much more rapid rate of transport and polyglutamation, the former less important when the carrier is saturated. 
|In vivo||Pralatrexate treatment results in treatment-related toxicity in MV522 mice models, as determined by significant weight loss in some animals prior to death; however, remaining mice regains all lost weight by Day 35. |

* 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.
