|Description||Y-27632 2HCl is a selective ROCK1 (p160ROCK) inhibitor with Ki of 140 nM in a cell-free assay, exhibits >200-fold selectivity over other kinases, including PKC, cAMP-dependent protein kinase, MLCK and PAK.|
Y-27632 2HCl inhibits ROCK-II while displaying little activity against PKC, cAMP-dependent protein kinase and myosin light-chain kinase (MLCK) with Ki of 26 μM, 25 μM and > 250 μM, respectively, as well as PKA activated by another Rho-family GTPase member, Cdc42. Y-27632 2HCl inhibits smooth-muscle contraction induces by various agonists including phenylephrine, histamine, acetylcholine, serotonin, endothelin, and thromboxane with IC50 of 0.3-1 μM, by selectively inhibiting Ca2+ sensitization. Y-27632 2HCl suppresses Rho-induced, p160ROCK-mediated formation of stress fibres in cultured cells.  Y-27632 2HCl treatment blocks both Rho-mediated activation of actomyosin and LPA-stimulated invasive activity of MM1 cells in a concentration-dependent manner.  Y-27632 2HCl treatment is not only sufficient to initiate formation of exuberant axonal processes but also facilitates axonal maturation during the very early stages of axonogenesis, while largely sparing axon elongation.  In human embryonic stem (hES) cells, Y-27632 2HCl treatment at 10 μM markedly diminishes dissociation-induced apoptosis even in serum-free suspension (SFEB) culture, increases cloning efficiency (from ~1% to ~27%), facilitates subcloning after gene transfer, and enables SFEB-cultured hES cells to survive and differentiate into Bf1+ cortical and basal telencephalic progenitors. 
|In vivo||Oral administration of Y-27632 2HCl at 30 mg/kg significantly decreases the blood pressure in a dose-dependent manner in spontaneous hypertensive rats, renal hypertensive rats, as well as deoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA)-salt hypertensive rats.  When Y-27632 2HCl is continuously administered at a rate of 0.55 μL per hour by implanted pumps for 11 days tumor cell invasion (MM1 cells expressing Val14-RhoA in rats) is significantly delayed.  By inhibiting ROCK, Y-27632 2HCl treatment attenuates hypoxia-induced angiogenesis and vascular remodeling in the pulmonary circulation.  Pretreatment with Y-27632 has a protective effect against tumor formation in albino mice with Ehrlich ascites carcinoma. |

|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
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 (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.
