|Description||GW5074 is a potent and selective c-Raf inhibitor with IC50 of 9 nM, no effect on the activities of JNK1/2/3, MEK1, MKK6/7, CDK1/2, c-Src, p38 MAP, VEGFR2 or c-Fms is noted. GW5074 inhibits LK-induced apoptosis.|
GW5074 is a potent and specific inhibitor of c-Raf with IC50 of 9 nM and has no effect of MKK6, MKK7, p38 MAP kinase and cdks in vitro. However, treatment of neuronal cultures with GW5074 permits accumulation of activating modifications on c-Raf and also B-Raf. The inhibition of LK-induced apoptosis by GW5074 in cerebellar granule neurons is not MEK-ERK-dependent. GW5074 delays down-regulation of Akt activity but inhibits apoptosis by an Akt-independent mechanism. GW5074 affects Ras, nuclear factor-kappa B and c-jun. GW5074 inhibits cell death caused by neurotoxins in granule cells and other neuronal types. 
|In vivo||GW5074 is protective in an in vivo experimental model of Huntington’s disease. GW5074 (5 mg/Kg) completely prevented extensive bilateral striatal lesions induced by 3-NP in mice.  GW5074 completely abolishes chronic morphine-mediated AC superactivation I in CHO cells stably expressing the humanμ-opioid receptor.  GW5074 suppresses sidestream smoke-induced airway hyperresponsiveness in mice. |
Affinity determination:In general, in vitro kinase assays are performed using purified kinase and synthetic substrates under standard conditions using the Kinase Profiling service of Upstate Biotechnology. Briefly, for each assay 5–10 mU of purified kinase is used. For GSK3β, cdk1, cdk2, cdk3, cdk5, the kinase is incubated with 1 μM GW5074 in a buffer containing 8 mM MOPS, pH 7.2, 0.2 mM EDTA, 10 mM magnesium acetate and [c- 33P-ATP] for 40 min at room temperature. Kinase activity is quantified by measuring 33P incorporation by spotting an aliquot on P30 filters, washing in 50 mM phosphoric acid and scintillation counting. The buffer composition for c-Raf, JNK1, JNK2, JNK3, MEK1, MKK6, MKK7 is 50 mM Tris pH 7.5, 0.1 mM EGTA, 10 mM magnesium acetate and [c- 33P-ATP]. The peptide substrates used are as follows: For c-Raf, 0.66 mg/mL MBP; for cdks, 0.1 mg/mL histone H1; for JNKs, 3 μM ATF2; for MEK1, 1 μM MAPK2; for MKK6, 1 μM of SAPK2a and for MKK7, 2 μM JNK1α.
|In vitro||DMSO||104 mg/mL (199.63 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
30% propylene glycol, 5% Tween 80, 65% D5W
For best results, use promptly after mixing.
* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.

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.
