|Description||TW-37 is a novel nonpeptide inhibitor to recombinant Bcl-2, Bcl-xL and Mcl-1 with Ki of 0.29 μM, 1.11 μM and 0.26 μM in cell-free assays, respectively.|
TW-37 targets the BH3-binding groove in Bcl-2 where proapoptotic Bcl-2 proteins bind, and shows higher affinity and selectivity for Bcl-2 and Mcl-1 over Bcl-xL with Ki values of 0.29 μM, 0.26 μM and 1.11 μM, respectively.  In vitro, TW-37 shows significant anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic effect in a de novo chemo-resistant WSU-DLCL2 lymphoma cell line and primary cells obtained from a lymphoma patient without effects on normal peripheral blood lymphocytes.  TW-37 exhibits the inhibitory effect on both cell growth and cell death in endothelial cell with IC50 of approximately 1.8 μM without effect on the fibroblasts exposed to the same concentration range as the endothelial cells. In addition, TW37 also shows the anti-proliferation effects in MCF-7, LNCaP, and SLK tumor cell lines with the same or lower concentration range than those required to inhibit endothelial cell growth. 
|In vivo||TW-37 shows a maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of 40 mg/kg for three i.v. injections in severe combined immunodeficient (SCID) mice when given alone, and enhances tumor inhibitory effect of cyclophosphamide-doxorubicin-vincristine-prednisone (CHOP) regimen.  TW-37, administrated by i.v. produces the antiangiogenic effect by decreasing the density of functional human microvessels in the severe combined immunodeficient mouse model of human angiogenesis.  The combination of TW-37 and MEK inhibitors synergistically block melanoma cell growth in mice by a significant reduction in tumor volume and tumor mass. |
Fluorescence polarization-based binding assay for recombinant Bcl-2, Bcl-XL, and Mcl-1 protein :For this assay, the 21-residue BH3 peptide QEDIIRNIARHLAQVGDSMDR derived from Bid labeled with 6-carboxyfluorescein succinimidyl ester (FAM-Bid) and recombinant proteins derived from human Bcl-2,Bcl-X L,and Mcl-1 are employed. It is determined that FAM-Bid has a Ki of 11 nM to Bcl-2 protein,25 nM to Bcl-XL protein,and 5.7 nM to Mcl-1 protein. The competitive binding assay for Bcl-XL is same as that for Bcl-2 with the following exceptions: 30 nM Bcl-XL protein and 2.5 nM FAM-Bid peptide in the following assay buffer [50 mM Tris-Bis (pH 7.4) and 0.01% bovine gamma-globulin].
|In vitro||DMSO||115 mg/mL (200.45 mM)|
|Ethanol||4 mg/mL (6.97 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
30% propylene glycol, 5% Tween 80, 65% D5W
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.
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.
