|Description||Procarbazine HCl is a hydrochloride salt form of procarbazine which is a polyfunctional alkylating compound, used for the treatment of Hodgkin's lymphoma.|
Procarbazine plus Cu(II) induce piperidine-labile and formamidopyrimidine-DNA glycosylase-sensitive lesions at the 5'-ACG-3' sequence, complementary to a hotspot of the p53 gene, and the 5'-TG-3' sequence. Procarbazine causes DNA damage through non-enzymatic formation of the Cu(I)-hydroperoxo complex and methyl radicals.  Procarbazine has a strong clastogenic effect in hematopoietic cells and is mutagenic in a variety organs after high dose treatment. 
|In vivo||Procarbazine causes significant decrease in testicular and epididymal weight and a drastic reduction in haploid cells and spermatogenic arrest, demonstrating variation among the test golden hamster.  Procarbazine produces a dose-dependent potentiation of MAO A in brown adipose tissue, the elevation being more pronounced following monomethylhydrazine, with activity rising to 350% of that in control homogenates in rats. Procarbazine or monomethylhydrazine reduces metabolism of this amine by a similar degree as had been determined ex-vivo in blood vessel homogenates.  Procarbazine is mutagenic, clastogenic and teratogenic in a wide range of test systems of varying complexity and a wide-spectrum carcinogen in rodents and monkeys, causing tumours of the haemopoietic system, the mammary gland, the lung and the nervous system. Procarbazine in vivo undergoes a complex series of metabolic changes that result in the generation of a number of chemically reactive species, including methylating agents and free radicals. |

* 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.
