|Description||M344 is a potent HDAC inhibitor with IC50 of 100 nM and able to induce cell differentiation.|
|Features||An inducer of terminal cell differentiation and a potent HDAC inhibitor.|
M344 produces a more significant effect on cell proliferation than on cell differentiation in MEL DS19 cells. M344 is toxic at concentrations above 10 μM, while a maximum of only 20% of the surviving cell population are induced to differentiate.  In vitro, M344 shows the significant anti-proliferative activities against the endometrial cancer cell line Ishikawa and the ovarian cancer cell line SK-OV-3 with EC50 of 2.3 μM and 5.1 μM, respectively. While the normal human endometrial epithelial cells shows little sensitivity to M344. In addition, M344 also leads to decreased proportion of cells in the S-phase and increased proportion in the G0/G1 phases of the cell cycle, induces apoptosis and decreases the transmembrane potential of mitochondria.  M344 potently inhibits proliferation of embryonal nervous system tumor cells including medulloblastoma cells (D341 Med, Daoy) and neuroblastoma cells (CH-LA 90,SHSY-5Y ) with GI50 of 0.65 μM, 0.63 μM, 0.63 μM and 0.67 μM, respectively. 
Enzyme Inhibition :Radioactively labeled chicken core histones are used as the enzyme substrate. The enzyme liberated tritiated acetic acid from the substrate which is quantitated by scintillation counting. IC50 values are results of triple determinations. 50 μL of maize enzyme (at 30 °C) is incubated (30 minutes) with 10 μL of total [3H]acetate-prelabeled chicken reticulocyte histones (1 mg/mL). Reaction is stopped by addition of 36 μL of 1 M HCl/0.4 M acetate and 800 μL of ethyl acetate. After centrifugation (10000g, 5 minutes) an aliquot of 600 μL of the upper phase is counted for radioactivity in 3 mL of liquid scintillation cocktail. M344 is tested in a starting concentration of 40 μM, and active substances are diluted further.

* 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.
