Biological Activity

Description Roxadustat (FG-4592) is an HIF-α prolyl hydroxylase inhibitor in a cell-free assay, stabilizes HIF-2 and induces EPO production. Roxadustat potentiates RSL3 induced ferroptosis. Phase 3.
HIF α prolyl hydroxylase [1]
(Cell-free assay)
In vitro

FG-4592 is an oral inhibitor of hypoxia inducible factor (HIF) prolyl hydroxylase currently in clinical development for the treatment of anemia. FG-4592 stabilizes the activities of HIF, a cytosolic transcription factor, leading to activation of the genes associated with erythropoiesis, including erythropoietin and enzymes involved in iron metabolism.

The effects of FG‐4592 on HIF1‐α were detected using Western Blot. Level of HIF‐1α was measured at different time points after the treatment of FG-4592.

CA9 / NDRG1 / GLUT1 / GLUT3 / HK2 / PHD2 / JMJD1A / JMJD2B / JMJD2C ; 

PubMed: 30801039     

0.05% DMSO (vehicle control), 1% O 2 (hypoxia), 100 µM VH298 and 50 µM FG-4592 were introduced to HeLa or HFF for 24 hours. Protein levels were analysed by immunoblotting using antibodies against indicated proteins, with β-Actin as loading control. The blots shown are representative of three independent experiments. * indicates longer exposure.

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.
