|Description||SH-4-54 is a potent STAT inhibitor with KD of 300 nM and 464 nM for STAT3 and STAT5, respectively.|
SH-4-54 shows unprecedented cytotoxicity in human glioblastoma brain cancer stem cells (BTSCs), while has no toxicity in human fetal astrocytes. In addition, SH-4-54 effectively suppresses STAT3 phosphorylation and its downstream transcriptional targets. 
|In vivo||In mice orthotopically xenografted with BT73, SH-4-54 (10 mg/kg i.p.) exhibits BBB permeability, potently suppresses glioma tumor growth, and inhibits pSTAT3. |
Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) studies:The binding experiments are carried out on a ProteOn XPR36 biosensor at 25°C using the HTE sensor chip. The flow cells of the sensor chip are loaded with a nickel solution at 30 μL/min for 120 s to saturate the Tris–NTA surface with Ni(II) ions. Purified His-tagged STAT3 and STAT5 in PBST buffer (PBS with 0.005% (v/v) Tween-20 and 0.001% DMSO pH 7.4) is injected in the first and second channels of the chip respectively in the vertical direction at a flow rate of 25 μg/μL for 300 s, which attained, on average, ~8000 resonance unit (RU). After a wash with PBST buffer, inhibitors binding to the immobilized proteins is monitored by injecting a range of concentrations along with a blank at a flow rate of 100 μL/min for 200 s for each of these small molecules. When the injection of the small molecule inhibitor is completed, running buffer is allowed to flow over the immobilized substrates for the non-specifically bound inhibitors to dissociate for 600 s. Following dissociation of the inhibitors, the chip surface is regenerated with an injection of 1 M NaCl at a flow rate of 100 μL/ml for 18 s. Interspot channel reference is used for non-specific binding corrections and the blank channel used with each analyte injection served as a double reference to correct for possible baseline drift. Data are analyzed using ProteOn Manager Software version 3.1. The Langmuir 1:1 binding model was used to determine the KD values.

* 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.

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 SDS / 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 SDS / 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.
