|Description||LDN-57444 is a reversible, competitive proteasome inhibitor for Uch-L1 with IC50 of 0.88 μM, 28-fold selectivity over isoform Uch-L3.|
Treatment with 50 μM LDN-57444 for 24 h leads to 70% inhibition of the proteasome activity. LDN-57444 causes a significant and concentration-dependent decrease in cell viability at concentrations above 25 μM and the cell viability reduced to 61.81% at 50 μM. LDN-57444 is able to cause cell death through the apoptosis pathway by decreasing the activity of ubiquitin proteasome system and increasing the levels of highly ubiquitinated proteins, both of which can activate unfolded protein response. The apoptosis induced by LDN-57444 may be triggered by the activation of endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS). 
|In vivo||LDN-57444 causes dramatic alterations in synaptic protein distribution and spine morphology in vivo. Treatment with LDN also results in a rapid fall of Uch-L1 activity, but proteasome inhibition has no effect on cAMP levels over a period of several hours. |
HTS screen:To start an assay, 0.5 μL of 5 mg/mL test compound (about 50 μM final reaction concentration) or DMSO control is aliquoted into each well. Both enzyme and substrate are prepared in UCH reaction buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl [pH 7.6], 0.5 mM EDTA, 5 mM DTT, and 0.5 mg/mL ovalbumin). 25 μL of 0.6 nM UCH-L1 is then added to each well except substrate control wells, followed by plate shaking for 45–60 s on an automatic shaker. The enzyme/compound mixture is incubated at room temperature for 30 min before 25 μL of 200 nM Ub-AMC is added to initiate the enzyme reaction. The reaction mixture (300 pM UCH-L1, 100 nM Ubiquitin-AMC with 2.5 μg test compound) is incubated at room temperature for 30 additional minutes prior to quenching the reaction by the addition of 10 μL 500 mM acetic acid per well. The fluorescence emission intensity is measured on a LJL Analyst using a coumarin filter set (ex = 365 nm, em = 450 nm) and is subtracted by the intrinsic compound fluorescence to reveal the enzyme activity. A DMSO control (0.5 μL of DMSO, 25 μL of UCH-L1, 25 μL of ubiquitin-AMC, 10 μL of acetic acid), enzyme control (25 μL of UCH-L1, 25 μL of buffer, 10 μL of acetic acid), substrate control (25 μL of buffer, 25 μL of ubiquitin-AMC, 10 μL of acetic acid), and inhibitor control (0.5 μL of ubiquitin aldehyde [100 nM stock], 25 μL of UCH-L1, 25 μL of ubiquitin-AMC, 10 μL of acetic acid) are also performed in each assay plate to ensure quality and reproducibility. Potential UCH-L1 inhibitors are selected if the compounds demonstrated greater than 60% inhibition compared to the controls. The UCH-L1 enzymatic reactions are manually repeated twice using the same protocol to confirm the results for the hit compounds from the primary robot-assisted screen.

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.
