GSK343 inhibits trimethylation of H3K27 (H3K27me3) with IC50 of 174 nM in HCC1806 breast cancer cells. GSK343 potently inhibits cell proliferation in breast cancer cells and prostate cancer cells, and the prostate cancer cell line LNCaP is the most sensitive to GSK343, with IC50 of 2.9 μM.  GSK343 significantly suppresses the growth of EOC cells cultured in 3D matrigel extracellular matrix (ECM), which mimics the tumor microenvironment in vivo. In addition, GSK343 also induces apoptosis of EOC cells in 3D and significantly inhibits the invasion of EOC cells. 
In vitro biochemical assays against histone methyltransferases:Activity against EZH2 is assessed using 5 member PRC2 complex (Flag-EZH2, EED, SUZ12, AEBP2, RbAp48). The assay protocol may be summarized as follows: 10 mM stocks of compounds are prepared from solid in 100% DMSO. An 11 point serial dilution master plate is prepared in 384 well format (1:3 dilution, columns 6 and 18 were equal volume DMSO controls) and dispensed to assay ready plates using acoustic dispensing technology to create a 100 nL stamp of compound and DMSO controls. The assay additions consisted of equal volume additions of 10 nM EZH2 and the substrate solution (5 µg/mL HeLa nucleosomes and 0.25 µM [3H]-SAM) dispensed into assay plates using a multi-drop combi dispense. Reaction plates are incubated for 1 hr and quenched with an equal volume addition of 0.5 mg/mL PS-PEI Imaging Beads (RPNQ0098) containing 0.1 mM unlabeled SAM. The plates are sealed, dark adapted for 30 minutes, and a 5 minute endpoint luminescence image is acquired using a Viewlux imager. Plate statistics such as Z’ and signal to background as well as dose response curves are analyzed using Activity BaseXE. The in vitro biochemical activity of EZH1 is assessed as part of a 5 member PRC2 complex using a 384 well SPA assay identical to EZH2. Buffer components, reagent dispensing, compound plate preparation, quench conditions and data analysis are identical for EZH1 and EZH2 with final assay concentrations of 20 nM EZH1, 5 μM/mL HeLa nucleosomes and 0.25 μM [3H]-SAM. Further data analysis, pIC50 pivots and visualizations are enabled by TIBCO Spotfire. Compounds are profiled at Reaction Biology Corp. (Malvern, PA) to assess inhibition in their panel of histone methyltransferase assays. Methyltransferase activity is assessed using HotSpot technology, a miniaturized radioisotope-based filter binding assay. Inhibitors are dissolved in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and tested at concentrations up to 100 uM with a final DMSO concentration of 2%. Buffer containing the methyltrasferase at the listed concentration and its preferred substrate as shown in the accompanying table is preincubated with compound for 10 min. Reactions are initiated by the addition of 1 uM S-adenosyl-L-[methyl-3H]methionine (SAM), allowed to incubate for 60 min at 30C followed by transfer to P81 filter-paper and PBS wash before detection.

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.
