  • TLR4/MAPK pathway regulated macrophage polarization towards M1 phenotype. LPS/INF-γ induced macrophages were cultured in the absence or presence of siTLR4, SP600125(an inhibitor of JNK), SCH772984(an inhibitor of ERK) and Skepinone-L(an inhibitor of p38) respectively for 24h. Then, all the cells were harvested for western blot assay.

Biological Activity

Description Skepinone-L (CBS3830) is a selective p38α-MAPK inhibitor with IC50 of 5 nM.
p38α [1]
5 nM
In vitro

Skepinone-L shows concentration-dependent inhibition of HSP27 (Ser82) phosphorylation through the p38 MAPK pathway with a cellular IC50 of approximately 25 nM, and also reduces concentrations of TNF-α, IL-1β and IL-10, regulated by p38 MAPK, with IC50 ranging from 30 to 50 nM . [1] Skepinone-L (1 μM) abrogates the phosphorylation of platelet p38 MAPK substrate Hsp27 activated by stimulation with CRP, thrombin or thromboxane A2 analogue U-46619, and impairs platelet secretion and aggregation. [2]

In vivo In vivo, skepinone-L inhibits Gal/ LPS-induced TNF-α release by 77%. [1]

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

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)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*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).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

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 )

  • C1

* 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.
