Lysates of HCT116p53KO cells were harvested 24 hs after treatment with different GSK3 inhibitors and GSK3A/B activation/inactivation checked by western blot: a mix of pSer21-GSK3A and pSer9-GSK3B antibodies and antibody cross-reacting with both pTyr279-GSK3A and pTyr216-GSK3B were used to assess the specificity of the inhibitor for GSK3A.

|Description||BIO (GSK-3 Inhibitor IX, 6-bromoindirubin-3-oxime) is a specific inhibitor of GSK-3 with IC50 of 5 nM for GSK-3α/β in a cell-free assay, shows >16-fold selectivity over CDK5, also a pan-JAK inhibitor with IC50 of 30 nM for Tyk2. BIO induces apoptosis in human melanoma cells.|
|Features||The first pharmacological agent shown to maintain self-renewal in human and mouse embryonic stem cells.|
BIO (6-bromoindirubin-3'-oxime) is a specific inhibitor of glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3), with IC50 of 5 nM for GSK-3α/β, shows >16-fold selectivity over CDK5. BIO interacts within the ATP binding pocket of these kinases, reduces β-catenin phosphorylation on a GSK-3-specific site in cellular models, closely mimicks Wnt signaling in Xenopus embryos.  In human and mouse embryonic stem cells, BIO maintains the undifferentiated phenotype and sustains expression of the pluripotent state-specific transcription factors Oct-3/4, Rex-1 and Nanog. BIO-mediated Wnt activation is functionally reversible, as withdrawal of the compound leads to normal multidifferentiation programs in both human and mouse embryonic stem cells.  BIO promotes proliferation in mammalian cardiomyocytes. 6BIO is also a pan-JAK inhibitor, with IC50 values of 0.03, 1.5, 8.0, 0.5 μM for TYK2, JAK1, JAK2 and JAK3. BIO selectively inhibits phosphorylation of STAT3 and induces apoptosis of human melanoma cells. 
|In vivo||BIO suppresses melanoma tumor growth in a mouse xenograft model. |
Kinase assay:Kinase activities are assayed in Buffer A or C at 30°C, at a final ATP concentration of 15 μM. Blank values are subtracted and activities calculated as pmoles of phosphate incorporated during a 10 min incubation. Controls are performed with appropriate dilutions of dimethylsulfoxide. In a few cases phosphorylation of the substrate is assessed by autoradiography after SDS-PAGE. GSK-3α/β is purified from porcine brain by affinity chromatography on immobilized axin. It is assayed, following a 1/100 dilution in 1 mg BSA/ml 10 mM DTT, with 5 μl 40 μM GS-1 peptide, a specific GSK-3 substrate, (YRRAAVPPSPSLSRHSSPHQSpEDEEE), in buffer A, in the presence of 15 μM [γ-32P] ATP (3,000 Ci/mmol; 1 mCi/ml) in a final volume of 30 μl. After 30 min incubation at 30°C, 25 μl aliquots of supernatant are spotted onto 2.5 × 3 cm pieces of Whatman P81 phosphocellulose paper, and 20 seconds later, the filters are washed five times (for at least 5 min each time) in a solution of 10 ml phosphoric acid/liter of water. The wet filters are counted in the presence of 1 ml ACS scintillation fluid.

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.
