|Description||KX2-391, the first clinical Src inhibitor (peptidomimetic class) that targets the peptide substrate site of Src, with GI50 of 9-60 nM in cancer cell lines. Phase 2.|
KX2-391 is a Src inhibitor that is directed to the Src substrate pocket. KX2-391 shows steep dose-response curves against Huh7 (GI 50 = 9 nM), PLC/PRF/5 (GI 50 = 13 nM), Hep3B (GI 50 = 26 nM), and HepG2 (GI 50 = 60 nM), four hepatic cell cancer (HCC) cell lines.  KX2-391 is found to inhibit certain leukemia cells that are resistant to current commercially available drugs, such as those derived from chronic leukemia cells with the T3151 mutation. KX2-391 is evaluated in engineered Src driven cell growth assays inNIH3T3/c-Src527F and SYF/c-Src527F cells and exhibits GI50 with 23 nM and 39 nM, respectively. 
|In vivo||In pre-clinical animal models of cancer, orally administered KX2-391 is shown to inhibit primary tumor growth and to suppress metastasis. |
|In vitro||DMSO||86 mg/mL (199.29 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
4% DMSO+30% PEG 300+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.

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.
