Berbamine (BBM) potently suppresses liver cancer cell proliferation and induces cancer cell death by targeting Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CAMKII). Through targeting CAMKII, BBM's inhibition on cancer cells might have broader effects beyond affecting JAK/STAT3 and p210bcr-abl, because CAMKIIγ directly impacts many other signal pathways including STAT1, NF-κB, JNK, ERK1/2, FOXO1, and Wnt/β-catenin. BBM can effectively inhibit tumor metastasis by suppressing cell proliferation, migration and invasion in highly metastatic breast cancer cells under in vitro condition. Berbamine inhibits proliferation of K562-r cells both in vitro and in vivo. Berbamine-induced apoptosis in K562-r cells appear to occur through a mechanism involving Bcl-2 family proteins, as well as mdr-1 mRNA and P-gp protein. Berbamine in combination with imatinib restore the chemo-sensitivity of K562-r cells to imatinib.
|In vivo||BBM inhibits the in vivo tumorigenicity of liver cancer cells in NOD/SCID mice, and down-regulated the self-renewal abilities of liver cancer initiating cells. BBM shows its anticancer activity by induction of apoptosis, cell cycle arrest and reversing multidrug resistance. Though BBM is a potent drug but its half-life in blood plasma is very short, owing to its quick renal clearance.|

* 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.
