Nocodazole is a rapidly-reversible inhibitor of microtubule polymerization, also inhibits Abl, Abl(E255K) and Abl(T315I) with IC50 of 0.21 μM, 0.53 μM and 0.64 μM in cell-free assays, respectively. Nocodazole improves the CRISPR-mediated HDR efficiency and has an additive effect on enhancing precise genome editing.

Nocodazole is a high-affinity ligand for the cancer-related kinases including Abl phosphorylated, c-Kit, BRAF, and MEK with Kd of 0.091 μM, 1.6 μM, 1.8 μM and 1.6 μM, respectively. In addition, the Kd of Nocodazole for Abl(E255K) phosphorylated, Abl(T315I) phosphorylated, BRAF(V600E) and PI3Kγ is 0.12 μM, 0.17 μM, 1.1 μM and 1.5 μM, respectively. Nocodazole induces apoptosis in chronic lymphocytic leukemia cells. Nocodazole inhibits insulin-stimulated glucose transport. Nocodazole decreases apoptosis in some human colon carcinoma cells. Nocodazole impairs the morphology and directionality of migrating medial gan-glionic eminence cells.  At high concentrations, Nocodazole rapidly depolymerizes microtubules in cells, while low concentrations of Nocodazole inhibit microtubule dynamic instability.  Mitotic cells incubated with different concentrations of Paclitaxel are inhibited from progressing to G1 phase 6 hours after release from the Nocodazole block, with a median inhibitory concentration of 4 nM. Nocodazole-pretreated cells exposed to Paclitaxel in the absence of Nocodazole only form free-floating microtubules, whereas pretreated cells exposed to Paclitaxel in the presence of Nocodazole-assembled centrosome organize microtubules.  Nocodazole disrupts microtubules by binding to β-tubulin. Nocodazole prevents the formation of one of the two interchain disulfide linkages. Nocodazole impairs the transport of vesicles. Nocodazole suppress METH-induced cell death and lysosomal dysfunction. METH-induced cell death is significantly decreased by Nocodazole pretreatment in comparison to METH alone. Nocodazole doubles HDR efficiency to up to 30% in iPSCs. It improves the CRISPR-mediated HDR efficiency and has an additive effect on enhancing precise genome editing.
|In vivo||The tumor volume and tumor weight of the mice treated with Ketoconazole plus Nocodazole are significantly reduced as compared with those treated with Ketoconazole or Nocodazole alone. Combined treatment with Ketoconazole plus Nocodazole strongly enhances apoptosis of COLO 205 tumor xenografts treated with Ketoconazole or Nocodazole alone. |

|In vitro||DMSO||7 mg/mL (23.23 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.
