PF-477736 (128 nM) abrogates the camptothecin-induced DNA damage checkpoint in a dose-dependent manner in CA46 and HeLa cells. PF-477736 effectively abrogates the gemcitabine-induced S-phase arrest with a corresponding increase in apoptotic cell populations in HT29 cells. PF-477736 (540 nM) enhances gemcitabine-induced cytotoxicity in a time- and dose-dependent manner in HT29 cells. PF-477736 potentiates the growth-inhibitory activity of a panel of chemotherapeutic agents across a broad spectrum of p53-deficient human cancer cell lines in the MTT assay. Addition of PF-477736 (360 nM) to gemcitabine-arrested cells induces a dramatic increase in the intensity of H2AX phosphorylation, reflecting a greater number of γ-H2AX molecules near sites of DNA damage.  PF-477736 (0.5 nM) selectively blocks p73 and P53 phosphorylation in presence of curcumin in HL-60 cells.  PF-477736 (360 nM) suppresses docetaxel-induced phosphorylation of histone H3 (Ser10) and Cdc25C (Ser216) and potentiates apoptosis in COLO205 cells.  PF-477736 (250 nM) combined with MK-1775 has marked synergistic cytotoxic activity in OVCAR-5 cells. PF-477736 (250 nM) combined with MK-1775 causes accumulation of cells with a DNA content between 2N and 4N in OVCAR-5 cells. PF-477736 (250 nM) combined with MK-1775 causes premature mitosis before the end of DNA replication, with damaged DNA leading to apoptotic cell death in OVCAR-5 cells. 
|In vivo||PF-477736 (4 mg/kg i.v.) results in terminal half-life (T1/2) of 2.9 hours, AUC of 5.72 μg×hr/mL and CLp of 11.8 mL/min/kg in rats. PF-477736 dose-dependently enhances the antitumor activity of a maximum tolerated dose of gemcitabine in the Colo205 xenograft mouse model. PF-477736 (12 mg/kg) induces an increase in the phosphorylation of histone H3 (Ser10) and of phospho-histone H2AX in the Colo205 xenograft mouse model.  PF-477736 (15 mg/kg i.p.) enhances docetaxel induced tumor growth inhibition and tumor growth delay in COLO205 and MDA-MB-231 xenograft models.  PF 477736 (10 mg/kg once daily i.p.) combined with MK-1775 (30 mg/kg twice a day oral) leads to greater tumor growth inhibition in mice bearing OVCAR-5 xenografts. |
Binding assay:The assay is performed in a 96-well plate for 20 minutes at 30℃ in 0.1 mL of assay buffer containing 50 mM TRIS pH 7.5, 0.4 M NaCl, 4 mM PEP, 0.15 mM NADH, 28 units of lactate dehydrogenase/mL, 16 units of pyruvate kinase/mL, 3 mM DTT, 0.125 mM Syntide-2, 0.15 mM ATP and 25 mM magnesium chloride. Assays are initiated with 1 nM of CHK1 kinase domain. The inhibition of CHK1 activity is determined by measuring initial velocities in the presence of varying concentrations of PF-477736. The data is analyzed using Enzyme Kinetic and Excel software and fit to a kinetic model for competitive inhibition to obtain a Ki value. The kinase selectivity of PF-477736 is evaluated by screening the compound at 1 μM or 10 μM against a panel 2 of about 100 protein kinases.
|In vitro||DMSO||6 mg/mL (14.3 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
2% DMSO+40% PEG 300
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.
