|Description||Dequalinium Chloride is a PKC inhibitor with IC50 of 7-18 μM, and also a selective blocker of apamin-sensitive K+ channels with IC50 of 1.1 μM.|
Dequalinium chloride (DECA) is a cationic, lipophilic compound with structure similar to the dye rhodamine 123. DECA is selectively accumulated and retained within the mitochondria of carcinoma cells where it acts as a mitochondrial poison by blocking mitochondrial enzymes which can then disrupt cellular energy production, eventually resulting in cell death. Dequalinium Chloride is a blocker of ganglionic transmission (EC50 = 2 μM).  Dequalinium is a potent inhibitor of apamin-sensitive K+ channels in hepatocytes and of nicotinic responses in skeletal muscle. Dequalinium blocks angiotensin II-evoked K+ loss with an IC50 of 1.5 μM and also inhibited125I - monoiodoapamin binding with Ki of 1.1 μM.  Dequalinium produces a rapid and reversible inhibition of the slow apamin-sensitive component of the afterhyperpolarization (AHP) which follows a single action potential in cultured rat sympathetic neurones.  Dequalinium Chloride (DECA) is a dicationic lipophilic PKC inhibitor. When exposed to UV light, DECA covalently binds to and irreversibly inhibits PKCα and PKCβ. 
|In vivo||In mice bearing bladder MB49 tumors, Dequalinium chloride (2 mg/kg/d, i.p.) displays anticarcinoma activity with T/C of 210%. |

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.
