Claudin11 / Occludin / ZO1 / Laminin-γ3 / β1-integrin ; 

PubMed: 19828778     

In vitro, primary rat Sertoli cell-germ cell cocultures are treated with SB-3CT (0, 5, and 10 μM) in the presence of MEHP for 12 h. The protein levels of claudin11, occludin, ZO1, laminin-γ3, and β1-integrin in primary rat Sertoli cell-germ cell cocultures are determined by Western blot analysis. ACTB serves as the loading control. 

In vivo In L-CI.5s T-cell lymphoma model, SB-3CT (5-50 mg/kg/d i.p.) potently inhibit liver metastasis and increases survival of mice. [2] SB-3CT (50 mg/kg/d i.p.) inhibits human prostate cancer growth, osteolysis and angiogenesis in a bone metastasis model. [3] In a mouse model of embolus-induced “permanent” focal cerebral ischemia, SB-3CT counteracts degradation of neuronal laminin, protects neurons from ischemic cell death, and ameliorates neurobehavioral outcomes after embolic MCA occlusion.

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.
