|Description||MK-4101, a potent inhibitor of the Hedgehog pathway, shows anti-tumor activity through the inhibition of proliferation and induction of extensive apoptosis in tumor cells.|
MK-4101 inhibits Hh signaling both in a reporter gene assay in an engineered mouse cell line (Gli_Luc) with IC50 = 1.5 µM and in human KYSE180 oesophageal cancer cells with an IC50 = 1 µM. Furthermore, MK-4101 displaced a fluorescently-labeled cyclopamine derivative from 293 cells expressing recombinant human SMO with an IC50 = 1.1 µM. MK-4101 arrests cells in G1 and G2 phases.
|In vivo||MK-4101 has robust antitumor activity through the inhibition of proliferation and induction of extensive apoptosis in tumor cells. MK-4101 is highly efficacious against primary medulloblastoma and basal cell carcinoma(BCC) developing in the cerebellum and skin of Ptch1+/- mice. Pharmacokinetics of MK-4101 shows that it could be administered orally, showing a good bioavailability (F ≥ 87 %) with low-to-moderate plasma clearance in mice and rats. Moreover, it was well absorbed, and mainly excreted into the bile.|
|In vitro||DMSO||98 mg/mL (198.59 mM)|
|Ethanol||60 mg/mL (121.58 mM)|
* 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 SDS / 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 SDS / 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.
