|Description||Ivacaftor (VX-770) is a selective potentiator of CFTR targeting G551D-CFTR and F508del-CFTR with EC50 of 100 nM and 25 nM in fisher rat thyroid cells, respectively.|
|Features||The first potent and orally available CFTR potentiator to enter human clinical trials.|
Ivacaftor (10 μM) significantly increases the forskolin-stimulated Cl- secretion (IT) by ~4-fold with an EC50 of 100 nM in the recombinant Fisher rat thyroid (FRT) cells expressing G551D gating mutation of CFTR, and by ~6-fold with an EC50 of 25 nM in the recombinant cells expressing temperature-corrected F508del processing mutation of CFTR. Consistent with the increases in the forskolin-stimulated IT, Ivacaftor (10 μM) increases the open probability (Po) of G551D-, F508del-, and wild-type CFTR by ~6-fold, ~5-fold and ~2-fold, respectively, indicating that Ivacaftor acts directly on CFTR to increase its gating activity. In primary cultured human CF bronchial epithelia (HBE) carrying the G551D and F508del CFTR mutations, Ivacaftor (10 μM) potently increases the forskolin-stimulated IT by ~10-fold from 5% to a maximum level of 48% of that measured in non-CF HBE, with an EC50 of 236 nM displaying ~70-fold more potency compared with the commonly used CFTR potentiator genistein, which has an EC50 of 16 μM. In HBE with F508del homozygous CFTR, Ivacaftor causes a significant increase in the forskolin-stimulated IT with an EC50 of 22 nM, to a less extent from 4% to 16% of non-CF HBE compared with the effect in G551D/F508del HBE. Due to CFTR potentiation, Ivacaftor inhibits excessive ENaC-mediated Na+ and fluid absorption with an IC50 of 43 nM, and decreases the amiloride response, resulting in an increase in the surface fluid and cilia beat frequency (CBF) in G551D/F508del HBE.

* 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.
