Biological Activity

Description Omaveloxolone (RTA-408) is a synthetic triterpenoid that activates the cytoprotective transcription factor Nrf2 and inhibits NF-κB signaling. Phase 2.
Nrf2 [1]
In vitro

RTA 408 potently increases expression of Nrf2 target genes and reverses IFNγ-mediated suppression of Gclc expression in RAW 264.7 cells. In a panel of eight human tumor cell lines, RTA 408 inhibits growth with an average GI50 value of 260 nM and induces apoptosis. RTA 408 also inhibits NF-κB and activates JNK in tumor cells. [1]

In vivo In mice with radiation-induced dermatitis, 1.0% RTA 408 markedly reduces epidermal and collagen thickening, prevents dermal necrosis and completely alleviates skin ulcers. [2] In rat skin, RTA 408 activates Nrf2 and induces cytoprotective genes. [3] RTA 408 also mitigates hematopoietic acute radiation syndrome in mice. [4]


Cell Research:[1]
- Collapse
  • Cell lines: A375, NCI-H460, A2058, MDA-Mb-231, HCT116, 786-0, A549, and PANC-1 cells
  • Concentrations: ~1 μM
  • Incubation Time: 72 hours
  • Method: For growth inhibition assays, cells are plated in duplicate 96-well culture dishes at 3 x 103 cells per well. The following day, one plate is treated with RTA 408 and the other is immediately processed for the sulforhodamine B (SRB) assay (time 0). Cells in the RTA 408-treated plate are processed for the SRB assay 72 hours after the start of treatment. Percentage of growth relative to vehicle-treated cells is calculated using: [(Ti-Tz)/(C-Tz)] x 100 where (Tz) is the absorbance value at time zero, (C) is absorbance value from vehicle treated wells after 72 hours, and (Ti) is the absorbance value from wells treated with the drug. Dose-response curves are plotted in GraphPad Prism and GI50 values are calculated

Solubility (25°C)

In vitro DMSO 100 mg/mL (180.27 mM)
Water Insoluble
Ethanol '''20 mg/mL
In vivo Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

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)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*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).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

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 )

  • C1

* 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.
