BTSA1 is a pharmacologically optimized BAX activator that binds with high affinity and specificity to the N-terminal activation site and induces conformational changes to BAX leading to BAX-mediated apoptosis. It effectively promotes apoptosis in leukemia cell lines and patient samples while sparing healthy cells.

|Description||BTSA1 is a pharmacologically optimized BAX activator that binds with high affinity and specificity to the N-terminal activation site and induces conformational changes to BAX leading to BAX-mediated apoptosis. It effectively promotes apoptosis in leukemia cell lines and patient samples while sparing healthy cells.|
BTSA1 has no capacity to directly activate the pro-apoptotic homolog BAK. BTSA1 treatment potently and dose-responsively induces membrane translocation of recombinant soluble BAX to mitochondrial membrane, which is followed by induction of BAX oligomerization. BTSA1-induced BAX activation promotes apoptosis in cancer cells. BTSA1 reduces viability of all AML cell lines in a dose-dependent manner with IC50 values ranged between 1 and 4 μM, which leads to complete effect within 24 hr treatment. It induces dose-dependent caspase-3/7 activation in all five AML cell lines.
|In vivo||BTSA1 potently suppresses human acute myeloid leukemia (AML) xenografts and increases host survival without toxicity. It is well-tolerated in mice with no toxic effects on healthy hematopoiesis, including healthy stem cellenriched (LSK) cells, common myeloid progenitors, granulocyte-monocyte progenitors, and megakaryocyte-erythrocyte progenitors. BTSA1 has substantial half-life in mouse plasma (T1/2 = 15 hr) and oral bioavailability (%F = 51), while a 10 mg/kg dose reaches sufficient levels (~15 μM) of BTSA1 to induce BAX activation and apoptosis in leukemia cells. Thus, BTSA1 is orally bioavailable with excellent pharmacokinetics, has significant anti-tumor activity in leukemia xenografts by promoting apoptosis, and at therapeutically effective doses it does not show any detectable toxicity in the hematopoietic system or other tissues.|

* 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.
