|Description||UNC0642 is a potent, selective inhibitor of histone methyltransferases G9a/GLP with IC50s less than 2.5 nM for G9a and GLP and shows more than 300-fold selective for G9a and GLP over a broad range of kinases, GPCRs, transporters, and ion channels.|
UNC0642 is competitive with the peptide substrate and non-competitive with the cofactor SAM. The Ki of UNC0642 is determined to be 3.7 ± 1 nM. It is more than 20,000-fold selective for G9a and GLP over 13 other methyltransferases (IC50 > 50,000 nM) and more than 2,000-fold selective over PRC2-EZH2 (IC50 > 5,000 nM). UNC0642 displays high potency (IC50 < 150 nM) in reducing cellular levels of H3K9me2, low cell toxicity (EC50 > 3,000 nM), resulting in a good separation of functional potency and cell toxicity with a tox/function ratio (which is determined by dividing the EC50 value of the observed toxicity by the IC50 value of the functional potency) of > 45 in U2OS, PC3, and PANC-1 cells. UNC0642 reduces clonogenicity in PANC-1 cells in a concentration-dependent manner while it has no effect on clonogenicity in MDA-MB-231 cells.
|In vivo||For evaluation in vivo PK properties in male Swiss Albino mice, a single intraperitoneal (IP) injection (5 mg/kg) of UNC0642 results in a plasma Cmax (maximum concentration) of 947 ng/mL and an AUC (area under the curve) of 1265 hr*ng/mL. It displays modest brain penetration with a brain/plasma ratio of 0.33. A single intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection dose of 5 mg/kg of UNC0642 is sufficient to inhibit G9a activity in adult mice. UNC0642 improves the life span and weight gain of m+/pΔS−U pups, produces long-lasting activation of PWS-associated genes, is apparently well tolerated and produces no notable acute toxicity, and does not interfere with the expression of the AS-associated Ube3a gene.|

* 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.
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 MSDS / 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 MSDS / 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.
