|Description||PTC-209 is a potent and selective BMI-1 inhibitor with IC50 of 0.5 μM in HEK293T cell line, and results in irreversible reduction of cancer-initiating cells (CICs).|
|Features||BMI-1-selective inhibitor targeting self-renewal of cancer cells.|
PTC-209 inhibits both the UTR-mediated reporter expression and endogenous BMI-1 expression in human colorectal HCT116 and human fibrosarcoma HT1080 tumor cells. PTC-209 decreases colorectal tumor cell growth in a BMI-1-dependent way. In addition, PTC-209 impairs colorectal cancer-initiating cells (CICs) through irreversible growth inhibition. 
|In vivo||PTC-209 (60 mg/kg/day, s.c.) effectively inhibits BMI-1 production in tumor tissue, and halts growth of preestablished tumors in mice bearing primary human colon cancer xenograft, human colon cancer cell lines LIM1215 or HCT116 xenografts. PTC-209 also reduces the frequency of functional colorectal CICs in vivo. |
Untranslated region-mediated luciferase reporter expression:HEK293 cells are transfected with a GEMS reporter vector that contains the luciferase open-reading frame flanked by and under post-transcriptional control of the BMI-1 5′ and 3′ UTRs. The resulting stable cells (F8) are treated with PTC-209 or vehicle control overnight, and then luciferase reporter activity is determined using Bright-Glo assays. The assays are run in triplicate for each point, and the percentage of inhibition was calculated against vehicle control.

* 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.
