Leukemia, 2016, 812-822.. Embelin purchased from Selleck.
Monocytes were mock or HCMV infected for 24 h, after which infected cells were treated with embelin (a XIAP inhibitor) for an additional 24 h. caspase 3 cleavage was assessed by immunoblotting. Membranes were then reprobed for β-actin as a loading control.

|Description||Embelin (Embelic Acid, NSC 91874), a quinone isolated from the Japanese Ardisia herb, is an inhibitor of X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis (XIAP) with IC50 of 4.1 μM in a cell-free assay.|
Embelin from the Japanese Ardisia herb is a small-molecular inhibitor that binds to the XIAP BIR3 domain with which Smac and caspsase-9 bind. Embelin inhibits cell growth of both PC-3 and LNCap cells in a dose-dependent manner, with IC50 values of 3.7 and 5.7 μM. While, the toxicity of Embelin in normal PrEC and in WI-38 cells is much lower with IC50 values of 20.1 μM and 19.3 μM. Treatment of PC-3 cells with 25 and 50 μM of embelin for 48 h, 30% and 75% of cells undergo apoptosis, representing approximately 3-and 9-fold increase as compared to untreated cells.  Embelin also potently suppresses the biosynthesis of eicosanoids by selective inhibition of 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) and Microsomal prostaglandin E2 synthase-1 (mPGES-1) with IC50 = 0.06 and 0.2 mM, respectively. 
Fluorescence Polarization Competitive Binding Assay:Fluorescence polarization experiments are performed in Dynex 96-well, black, round-bottom plates. A 5 μL sample of Embelin dilutions in DMSO, and preincubated XIAP BIR3 protein (0.06 μM) and the N terminus of a Smac peptide (SM7F) (0.01 μM) in the assay buffer are added to 96-well plates to produce a final volume of 125 μL. For each assay, the bound peptide control containing XIAP BIR3 protein and SM7F (equivalent to 0% inhibition) and free peptide control containing only free SM7F (equivalent to 100% inhibition) were included. The plates were mixed and incubated at room temperature for 3 h to reach equilibrium.

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.
