|Description||Sofosbuvir (PSI-7977, GS-7977) is a HCV NS5B polymerase inhibitor for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection.|
As HCV NS5B polymerase inhibitor, PSI-7977 displays more potent inhibitory activity against HCV RNA replication than PSI-7976 with EC50 of 92 nM versus 1.07 μM and EC90 of 0.29 μM versus 2.99 μM, consistent with that incubating clone A cells with PSI-7977 leads to a higher concentration of PSI-7409 than clone A cells incubated with PSI-7976. PSI-7977 is an effective substrate for CatA to form PSI-352707 with 18-30 fold more potency as compared with PSI-7976. Unlike GS-7976, however, the CES1-mediated hydrolysis of PSI-7977 does not progress in a time-dependent manner.  The S282T NS5B polymerase mutation but not S96T mutation confers resistance to PSI-7977 with EC90 increases from 0.42 μM to 7.8 μM. When assessed in an 8-day cytotoxicity assay, PSI-7977 displays no cytotoxicity against Huh7, HepG2, BxPC3, and CEM cells even at concentrations up to 100 μM. PSI-7977 treatment for 14 days shows a IC90 of 72.1 μM and 68.6 μM for the inhibition of mtDNA and rDNA, respectively, in HepG2 cells.  PSI-7977 exhibits potent activity against genotype (GT) 1a, 1b, and 2a (strain JFH-1) replicons and chimeric replicons containing GT 2a (strain J6), 2b, and 3a NS5B polymerase. Sequence analysis of the JFH-1 NS5B region indicates that additional amino acid changes including T179A, M289L, I293L, M434T, and H479P are selected both prior to and after the emergence of S282T, which are required to confer resistance to PSI-7977.

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 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.
