|Description||S3I-201 (NSC 74859) shows potent inhibition of STAT3 DNA-binding activity with IC50 of 86 μM in cell-free assays, and low activity towards STAT1 and STAT5.|
|Features||A chemical probe inhibitor of Stat3 activity.|
S3I-201 inhibits growth and induces apoptosis preferentially in tumor cells that contain persistently activated Stat3 by inhibiting Stat3·Stat3 complex formation and Stat3 DNA-binding and transcriptional activitie. Moreover, S3I-201 also inhibits the expression of the Stat3-regulated genes encoding cyclin D1, Bcl-xL, and survivin.  S3I-201 inhibits breast carcinoma MDA-MB-435, MDA-MB-453 and MDA-MB-231 cell lines with IC50 of 100 μM. In addition, the cells with impaired TGF-β signaling are four times as sensitive to the STAT3 inhibitor S3I-201.  A recent study shows that S3I-201 potentiates the antiproliferative effect of cetuximab in HepG2 and Huh-7 cells via the STAT3 signalling pathway. 
|In vivo||S3I-201 (5 mg/kg, i.v. every 2 or every 3 days) shows the antitumor efficacy in mouse models with human breast tumor xenografts that harbor constitutively active Stat3.  S3I-201 treatment reduces Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) replication on the basis of the bioluminescence signal and the number of positive skin xenografts compared with DMSO-treated mice by inhibiting STAT3 phosphorylation. |
In vitro Stat3 DNA-binding assay and EMSA analysis :Briefly, 100 mL of biotinyl-e-Ac-EPQpYEEIEL-OH (in 50 mM Tris/150 mM NaCl, pH 7.5) is added to each well of streptavidin-coated 96-well microtiter plates and incubated with shaking at 4 °C overnight. Then plates are rinsed with PBS/Tween 20 and then two times with 200 mL of BSA-T-PBS (0.2% BSA/0.1% Tween 20/PBS). Then 50 mL of Lck-SH2-GST fusion protein (6.4 ng/ml in BSA-T-PBS) is added to each well of the 96-well plate in the presence and absence of 50 mL of S3I-201 (for 30 and 100 mM final concentrations), and the plate is shaken at room temperature for 4 hours. After solutions are removed, each well is rinsed four times with BSA-T-PBS (200 mL), and 100 mL of polyclonal rabbit anti-GST antibody (100 ng/mL in BSA-T-PBS) is added to each well and incubated at 4 °C overnight. After washing with BSA-T-PBS, 100 mL of 200 ng/mL BSA-T-PBS horseradish peroxidase-conjugated mouse anti-rabbit antibody is added to each well and incubated for 45 minutes at room temperature. After four washing steps with BSA-T-PBS and three washing steps with PBS-T, 100 mL of peroxidase substrate is added to each well and incubated for 5-15 minutes. The peroxidase reaction is stopped by adding 100 mL of 1 M sulfuric acid solution, and absorbance is read at 450 nm with an ELISA plate rea

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 SDS / 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 SDS / 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.
