|Description||Deguelin, a natural product isolated from plants in the Mundulea sericea family, is an PI3K/AKT Inhibitor.|
Deguelin downregulates Akt phosphorylation in leukaemia cell lines with an active PI3K/Akt axis. At 10 or 100 nmol/l, deguelin is effective in inhibiting Akt phosphorylation. Total Akt expression is unchanged by deguelin. Moreover, deguelin does not affect the expression or the phosphorylation levels of either p44/42 or p38 MAP kinases in U937 cells. Deguelin increases sensitivity of human leukaemia cells to chemotherapeutic drugs. Deguelin dephosphorylates Akt and increases cytarabine sensitivity of AML blasts but not of CB CD34+. Deguelin, when employed for 24 h at 10 nmol/l, causes an S phase arrest of U937 cells, with interference of progression to G2/M phase. While employed alone up to a concentration of 10 nmol/l for 24 h, Deguelin does not significantly increase the apoptotic rate of U937 cells.
|In vivo||Deguelin inhibits in vivo angiogenesis of chick chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) without cytotoxic effect and significantly reduces laser-induced CNV in a mouse model of AMD without significant retinal toxicity. It exhibited significant anti-tumorigenesis and anti-proliferative activity in various types of cancer both in vitro and in vivo. In pre-clinical trials, deguelin markedly decreased the tumor incidence. Topically-administered deguelin significantly suppressed the multiplicity of skin tumors with UVB-induction, indicating its effect as a potential cancer chemopreventive agent. In A/J mice, deguelin clearly reduced the tumor multiplicity and volume, as well as the overall tumor burden with exposure to the tobacco-specific carcinogen benzo(a)pyrene (Bap) and other carcinogens, with no detectable toxicity. Nevertheless, the toxicity of deguelin over a certain dose should not be neglected. Treatment with deguelin, a potential mitochondria complex I inhibitor, reduced tyrosine hydroxylase-positive neurons, leading to Parkinson’s disease. Kim et al shows that deguelin promoted a PD-like syndrome, mainly by Src/STAT signaling, since α-synuclein (a key protein function in the pathogenesis of PD) was phosphorylated by deguelin-activated Src.|

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.
