Biological Activity

Description Closantel (R-31520) is a gram positive antibacterial activity inhibitor, inhibiting the KinA/Spo0F system with IC50 of 3.8 μM.
In vitro

Closantel inhibits drug resistant S. aureus and E. faecium with MICs of 1 μg/mL and 1 μg/mL. Closantel inhibits MRSA and E.faecalis with MICs of 2 μg/mL and 1 μg/mL. [1] Closantel completely blocks the infection of host cells with E. chaffeensis or A. phagocytophilum, treatment of infected cells 1 day post infection with closantel clears infection in dose-dependent manner. Closantel inhibits the autokinase activities of the three E. chaffeensis sensor kinases from E. chaffeensis. [2] Closantel (50 μg/mL) causes an initial burst of contractions of much greater amplitude and frequency than normal in tissue vessel, the stimulation of amplitude and frequency lasted for nearly 15 min and is accompanied by a rise in muscle tone, which reaches a maximum at 16 min, at a level greater than 1.5 times the maximal normal amplitude. [3]

In vivo Closantel (10 mg/kg) results in gross surface damage from 24 hours onwards in rats administrated with 25 metacercarial cysts of F. hepatica, in the form of erosion of the anterior and posterior extremities of the fluke and large-scale sloughing of the tegument on both dorsal and ventral surfaces. [3] Closantel (7.5 mg/kg) combined with broad-spectrum anthelmintic is very effective against H. contortus but ineffective against Trichostrongylus spp in lambs. [4] Closantel significantly reduces isotope levels in closantel-resistant adult Haemonchus contortus infected sheep. [5]

* 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.

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

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)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*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).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

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 )

  • C1

* 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.
