The H3K9me2 inhibitor BIX01294 mimics the effects of BPA and DEHP on the expression of meiotic genes and Plzf in cultured testes. (A) representative double IF staining for Mvh (green) and Stra8 (red) and Scp3 (red) and (B) Plzf (red) in histological sections of control and BIX01294-treated testes. (C) RT-qPCR analysis of Stra8, Scp3, Rec8, Spo11 and plzf in testes from the control and BIX01294-treated groups. Data are represented as the mean ± SEM. ns, P > 0.05, *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01.

|Description||BIX01294 is an inhibitor of G9a histone methyltransferase with IC50 of 2.7 μM in a cell-free assay, reduces H3K9me2 of bulk histones, also weakly inhibits GLP (primarily H3K9me3), no significant activity observed at other histone methyltransferases.|
BIX01294 is a selective inhibitor of G9a histone methyltransferase and does not affect SUV39H1(H320R) and PRMT1 within the tested concentration range. BIX-01294 specifically inhibited G9a (H3K9me2) and, to a lesser extent, the closely related GLP enzyme (primarily H3K9me3), with an IC50 of 1.7 μM for G9a and 38 μM for GLP. BIX-01294 inhibits G9a in an uncompetitive manner with SAM. BIX-01294 (4.1μM) reduces H3K9me2 Levels in Bulk Histone Preparations from wt ES cells, mouse embryonic fibroblasts and HeLa cells, but not in G9a deficient stem cells. BIX-01294 is a valuable inhibitor for the transient modulation of chromosomal H3K9me2. BIX-01294 Reduces H3K9me2 at Several G9a Target Genes including Bim1 and Serac1.  BIX01294 could reactivate expression of HIV-1 from latently infected cells such as ACH-2 and OM10.1.

* 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.
