|Description||GW4869 (GW69A, GW554869A) is a neutral, noncompetitive inhibitor of sphingomyelinase (SMase) with an IC50 of 1 μM. It is selective for N-SMase, and does not inhibit acid SMase at up to at least 150 μM.|
GW4869 inhibits N-SMase not only in vitro but also in a cellular model. GW4869 does not significantly impair TNF-induced NF-κB translocation to nuclei. Therefore, GW4869 does not interfere with other key TNF-mediated signaling effects. GW4869 is able, in a dose-dependent manner, to significantly protect from cell death as measured by nuclear condensation, caspase activation, PARP degradation, and trypan blue uptake. These protective effects are accompanied by significant inhibition of cytochrome c release from mitochondria and caspase 9 activation, therefore localizing N-SMase activation upstream of mitochondrial dysfunction. At up to 150 μM, GW4869 does not inhibit the cloned human A-SMase. GW4869 shows no or minor inhibitory activity versus other hydrolytic enzymes, such as bacterial phosphatidylcholine-PLC and bovine protein phosphatase 2A, and it shows significantly higher activity versus the rat brain enzyme compared with the human lyso-PAF PLC.
|In vivo||Systemic administration of GW4869 does not alter the ceramide or sphingomylein content of liver, heart or skeletal muscle but does decrease the ceramide content and increase the sphingomyelin content in brain. Inhibition of nSMase2 with GW4869 slowed learning. Mice administered GW4869 do not progressively decrease latency to locate the hidden platform with repeated training trials, suggesting that they has difficulty learning to use spatial cues to navigate the pool. Intraperitoneal injection of GW4869 reduces the levels of brain and serum exosomes, brain ceramide, and Aβ1-42 plaque load. GW4869 reduces amyloid plaque formation in vivo by preventing exosome secretion. GW4869 may have a low toxicity at levels needed to achieve a biological effect from nSMase2 inhibition.|

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.
