|Description||Benzbromarone is a CYP2C9 inhibitor, it binds to CYP2C9 with Ki value of 19.3 nM.|
Benzbromarone (20 μM) decreases mitochondrial membrane potential by 81% in isolated rat hepatocytes. Benzbromarone decreases state 3 oxidation and respiratory control ratios for L-glutamate with IC50 < 1 μM in isolated rat liver mitochondria. Benzbromarone (50 μM) uncouples oxidative phosphorylation and increases oxygen consumption by hepatocytes starting at 10 μM in isolated rat hepatocytes. Benzbromarone also inhibits the formation of acid-soluble β-oxidation products in a dose-dependent manner with IC50 of 2 μM. Benzbromarone (100 μM) inhibits the electron transport chain and are uncouplers of oxidative phosphorylation in isolated rat liver mitochondria. Benzbromarone (1 μM) leads to concentration-dependent increasion of ROS production in HepG2 cells. Benzbromarone (100 μM) leads to a significant increase in mitochondrial size of isolated rat liver mitochondria. Benzbromarone is associated with leakage of cytochrome c into the cytoplasm of HepG2 cells. Benzbromarone (100 μM) results in the proportion of apoptotic cells of 11% in rat hepatocytes.  Benzbromarone significantly reduces the oxypurinol uptake at a concentration as low as 10 nM and completely blocks it at 1 μM. Benzbromarone (1 μM) uptakes the typical substrate of OCTN1 (tetraethylammonium) and OCTN2 (carnitine) in the HEK293 cells expressed with human OCTN1 by 96.7% and 111% of control, respectively.  Benzbromarone completely inhibits urate uptake at 50 μM in URAT1-expressing oocytes, with IC50 of less than 0.1 μM.  Benzbromarone activates through sequential hydroxylation of the benzofuran ring to a catechol, which can then be further oxidized to a reactive quinone intermediate capable of adducting protein.

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 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.
