|Description||SB203580 (RWJ 64809, PB 203580) is a p38 MAPK inhibitor with IC50 of 0.3-0.5 μM in THP-1 cells, 10-fold less sensitive to SAPK3(106T) and SAPK4(106T) and blocks PKB phosphorylation with IC50 of 3-5 μM. SB203580 induces mitophagy and autophagy.|
|Features||First reported p38 inhibitor.|
SB203580 inhibits the IL-2-induced proliferation of primary human T cells, murine CT6 T cells, or BAF F7 B cells with an IC50 of 3–5 μm. SB203580 also inhibits IL-2-induced p70S6 kinase activation, although the concentration required is slightly higher with an IC50 above 10 μm. SB203580 also inhibits the activity of PDK1 in a dose-dependent manner with an IC50 in the 3–10 μm range.  SB203580 inhibits p38-MAPK stimulation of MAPKAPK2 with an IC50 of approximately 0.07 μM, whereas inhibits total SAPK/JNK activity with an IC50 of 3–10 μM. SB203580 at higher concentrations activates the ERK pathway, which subsequently enhances NF-κB transcriptional activity.  SB203580 induces autophagy in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells. 
|In vivo||SB203580 protects pig myocardium against ischemic injury in an in vivo model. SB203580 is effective to prevent and treat the disease in MRL/lpr mice model of Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). |
Cellular receptor kinase phosphorylation assay :4 μg of sheep anti-PKBα is immobilized on 25 μL of protein G-Sepharose overnight (or 1.5 hours) and washed in Buffer A (50 mm Tris, pH 7.5, 1 mm EDTA, 1 mm EGTA, 0.5 mm Na3VO4, 0.1% β-mercaptoethanol, 1% Triton X-100, 50 mm sodium fluoride, 5 mm sodium pyrophosphate, 0.1 mm phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride, 1 μg/mL aprotinin, pepstatin, leupeptin, and 1 μm microcystin). The immobilized anti-PKB is then incubated with 0.5 ml of lysate (from 5 × 106 cells) for 1.5 hours and washed three times in 0.5 mL of Buffer A supplemented with 0.5 m NaCl, two times in 0.5 mL of Buffer B (50 mm Tris-HCl, pH 7.5, 0.03% (w/v) Brij-35, 0.1 mm EGTA, and 0.1% β-mercaptoethanol), and twice with 100 μl of assay dilution buffer; 5× assay dilution buffer is 100 mm MOPS, pH 7.2, 125 mm β-glycerophosphate, 25 mm EGTA, 5 mm sodium orthovanadate, 5 mm DTT. To the PKB enzyme immune complex is added 10 μL of assay dilution buffer, 40 μm protein kinase A inhibitor peptide, 100 μm PKB-specific substrate peptide, and 10 μCi of [γ-32P]ATP, all made up in assay dilution buffer. The reaction is incubated for 20 minutes at room temperature with shaking, then samples are pulse spun, and 40 μL of reaction volume are removed into another tube to which is added 20 μL of 40% trichloroacetic acid to stop the reaction. This is mixed and incubated for 5 minutes at room temperature, and 40 μL is transferred onto P81 phosphocellulose paper and allowed to bind for 30 seconds. The P81 piece is washed three times in 0.75% phosphoric acid then in acetone at room temperature. γ-32P incorporation is then measured by scintillation counting.

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.
