Inhibition of GSK-3β promotes Runx2 induction. Vascularsmoothmusclecells(VSMCs) were treated with or without IM-12(3 μM) for 24h, and cells treated with β-GP (10 mM) were as a positive control. The cell lysates were immunoblotted with antibodies against Runx2 and β-actin, respectively.

|Description||IM-12 is a selective GSK-3β inhibitor with IC50 of 53 nM, and also enhances canonical Wnt signalling.|
In hNPCs, IM-12 inhibits GSK-3β activity with IC50 of 3.8 μM and subsequently increases β-catenin concentration significantly. Through the activation of canonical Wnt signalling pathway, IM-12 promotes the neuronal differentiation of human neural progenitor cells. 
GSK-3β activity assay:IC50 of new synthesised compound IM-12 to GSK-3β is determined by a luminometric GSK-3β activity assay. Briefly, compounds are tested in different concentrations diluted in assay buffer containing final concentrations of: 4 mM MOPS pH 7.2; 0.4 mM EDTA; 1 mM EGTA; 2.5 mM β-glycerophosphate; 4 mM MgCl2; 40 μM BSA; 0.05 mM DTT. Four microlitres of diluted compounds are added to 25 μM pGS-2 peptide substrate, 20 ng recombinant GSK-3β and 1 μM ATP to a total assay volume of 40 μl. The enzymatic reaction is stopped after 30 min of incubation at 30 °C by adding 40 μl KinaseGlo. The luminometric signal is allowed to stabilise for 10 min and the measured with a Glomax® 96 Microplate Luminometer.

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 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.
