|Features||Extensively used as a pharmacologic probe in cancer cells. Potential use for prostate and lung cancers.|
C646 is an inhibitor for histone acetyltransferase, inhibits p300 with a Ki of 400 nM and is selective versus other acetyltransferases. C646 produces 86% inhibition of p300 in vitro at 10 μM. C646 is a classical reversible p300 inhibitor. C646 treatment (25μM) reduces histone H3 and H4 acetylation levels and abrogates TSA-induced acetylation in cells.  C646 (20μM) induces apoptosis in androgen-sensitive and castration-resistant prostate cancer cell lines by interfering with AR and NF-kB pathways.  C646 blocks dynamic acetylation of H3K4me3 globally in mouse and fly cells, and locally across the promoter and start-site of inducible genes in the mouse, thereby disrupting RNA polymerase II association and the activation of these genes. 
|In vivo||C646 infused into the ILPFC immediately after weak extinction training enhances the consolidation of fear extinction memory.  C646 attenuates mechanical allodynia and thermal hyperalgesia, accompanied by a suppressed COX-2 expression, in the spinal cord. |
Radioactive assay:IC50 values for the putative p300 HAT inhibitors are determined using the direct radioactive assay described above. Reactions are performed in 20 mM HEPES (pH 7.9), and contained 5 mM DTT, 80μM EDTA, 40μg/ml BSA, 100μM H4-15, and 5 nM p300. Putative inhibitors are added over a range of concentrations, with DMSO concentration kept constant (<5%). Reactions are incubated at 30°C for 10 min, then initiated with addition of a 1:1 mixture of 12C-acetyl-CoA and 14C-acetyl-CoA to 20 mM. After 10 min at 30°C, reactions are quenched with 14% SDS (w/v). All concentrations are screened in duplicate. Gels are run, washed, dried, and exposed to a PhosphorImager plate, and production of Ac-H4-15 quantified to obtain IC50s.
|In vitro||DMSO||13 mg/mL (29.18 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
5% DMSO+40% PEG 300+5%Tween 80+ddH2O
For best results, use promptly after mixing.
* 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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions
I am planning to conduct IP studies in mice, any specific vehicle that you can recommend to me?
We found it can be dissolved in 5% DMSO+30% PEG 300+ddH2O at 1 mg/ml as a clear solution. It should be ok for i.p. injection.
