|Description||Triapine (3-AP) is a potent ribonucleotide reductase (RNR) inhibitor with broad spectrum antitumor activity by inhibiting DNA synthesis. Phase 2.|
Triapine potently inhibits the activity of ribonucleotide reductase in both wild-type KB and HU-resistant KB nasopharyngeal carcinoma cells. Triapine shows broad spectrum antitumor activity by inhibiting DNA synthesis in a series of cancer cell lines.  In vitro, Triapine blocks ischemic neurotoxicity and hypoxic toxicity with EC50 of 0.35 μM and 0.75 μM, respectively. Triapine also shows its neuroprotective activity by suppressing cell death induced by neurotoxic agents, including staurosporine, veratridine and glutamate. 
|In vivo||In mice bearing the L1210 leukemia, Triapine (1.25 to 20 mg/kg) is curative for some mice without lethal toxicity. Triapine also inhibits the growth of solid tumors in mice M109 lung carcinoma and human A2780 ovarian carcinoma xenografts. In addition, combination of Triapine with various classes of agents that damage DNA results in synergistic inhibition of the L1210 leukemia.  In a rat model of transient ischemia, Triapine reduces infarct volume by 59% when administered i.c.v. (50 μ per rat) and by 35% when administered i.v. (1 mg/kg). |
Ribonucleotide reductase assay:CDP reductase is assayed using Dowex 1-borate ion-exchange chromatography. The assay mixture contains 0.02 μCi of [14C]CDP (52.9 mCi/mmol), 3 mM dithiothreitol, 6 mM MgCl2, 30 mM HEPES, 5 mM ATP, 0.15 mM unlabeled CDP, and 10 μL of cellular extract in a final volume of 0.02 mL. The incubation time for the reaction is 60 min, during which time the reaction is linear.
|In vitro||DMSO||20 mg/mL (102.43 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
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.
