|Description||Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE, Phenylethyl Caffeate) is a potent and specific inhibitor of NF-κB activation, and also displays antioxidant, immunomodulatory and antiinflammatory activities.|
Caffeic acid phenethyl ester blocks NF-κB activation induced by phorbol ester, ceramide, okadaic acid, and hydrogen peroxide by preventing the translocation of the p65 subunit of NF-κB to the nucleus.  In a series of tumor cell lines, Caffeic acid phenethyl ester shows promising antiproliferative activity with EC50 of 1.76, 3.16, 13.7, and 44.0 μM against murine colon 26-L5, murine B16-BL6 melanoma, human HT-1080 fibrosarcoma and human lung A549 adenocarcinoma cell lines, respectively.  Caffeic acid phenethyl ester, as a potent antioxidant, exerts its anti-apoptotic effect in cerebellar granule cells by blocking ROS formation and inhibiting caspase activity.  Moreover, Caffeic acid phenethyl ester attenuates the pro-inflammatory phenotype of LPS-stimulated HSCs, and LPS-induced sensitization of HSCs to fibrogenic cytokines by inhibiting NF-κB signaling. 
|In vivo||In vivo, Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (10 mg/kg, i.p.) inhibits the growth and angiogenesis of primary tumors in C57BL/6 and BALB/c mice inoculated with Lewis lung carcinoma, colon carcinoma, and melanoma cells.  Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (5, 10, 20 mg/kg) also shows immunomodulatory effects in vivo by decreasing thymus weight and/or cellularity of thymus and spleen. |

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 SDS / 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 SDS / 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.
