Molecular Weight(MW): 506.70
Ixabepilone is an orally bioavailable microtubule inhibitor. It binds to tubulin and promotes tubulin polymerization and microtubule stabilization, thereby arresting cells in the G2-M phase of the cell cycle and inducing tumor cell apoptosis.

BMS-247550 is a highly potent cytotoxic agent capable of killing cancer cells at low nanomolar concentrations and retains its antineoplastic activity against human cancers that are naturally insensitive to paclitaxel or that have developed resistance to paclitaxel.
|In vivo||In vivo, BMS-247550 has clearly demonstrated antitumor activity that is superior to paclitaxel in both paclitaxel-resistant and -sensitive tumors. BMS-247550 is more efficacious than paclitaxel in all five paclitaxel-resistant tumors evaluated in this study (four human and one murine): i.e., the clinically derived paclitaxel resistant Pat-7 ovarian carcinoma, the A2780Tax ovarian carcinoma that is resistant to paclitaxel because of tubulin mutations, the HCT116/VM46 MDR colon carcinoma, the clinically derived paclitaxel-resistant Pat-21 breast carcinoma, and the murine fibrosarcoma M5076. Against three paclitaxel-sensitive human tumor xenografts, BMS-247550 produces antitumor activity equivalent to paclitaxel: i.e., A2780 human ovarian carcinoma, HCT116, and LS174T human colon carcinoma.|
|In vitro||DMSO||100 mg/mL (197.35 mM)|
|Ethanol||100 mg/mL (197.35 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
2% DMSO+30% PEG 300+2% Tween 80+ddH2O
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.

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.
