|Description||SIS3, a novel specific inhibitor of Smad3, inhibits TGF-β and activin signaling by suppressing Smad3 phosphorylation without affecting the MAPK/p38, ERK, or PI3-kinase signaling pathways.|
Addition of SIS3 attenuates the effects of TGF-β1 by reducing the transcriptional activity. SIS3 also inhibits the myofibroblast differentiation of fibroblasts by TGF-β1. SIS3 completely diminishes the constitutive phosphorylation of Smad3 as well as the up-regulated type I collagen expression in scleroderma fibroblasts, thus abolishes the ECM overexpression in the TGF-β1-treated normal dermal fibroblasts and scleroderma fibroblasts in vitro.
|In vivo||SIS3 inhibits Smad3 activation in streptozotocin(STZ)-induced diabetic nephropathy in Tie2-Cre;Loxp-EGFP mice. It also reduces AGE-induced EndoMT and decreases EndoMT in STZ-induced diabetic nephropathy in Tie2-Cre;Loxp-EGFP mice. SIS3 significantly reduces collagen IV and fibronectin expression in the glomeruli and tubulointerstitium of STZ-injected Tie2-Cre;Loxp-EGFP mice, suggesting that SIS3 retards the early development of STZ-induced diabetic glomerulosclerosis and tubulointerstitial fibrosis. However, SIS3 administration does not reduce proteinuria.|
|In vitro||DMSO||97 mg/mL (197.96 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
2% DMSO+30% PEG 300+2% Tween 80+ddH2O
For best results, use promptly after mixing.
* 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.
