|Description||Wnt-C59 (C59) is a PORCN inhibitor for Wnt3A-mediated activation of a multimerized TCF-binding site driving luciferase with IC50 of 74 pM in HEK293 cells.|
Wnt-C59 (C59) is claimed to inhibit PORCN enzyme activity at nanomolar concentrations. Wnt-C59 (10 nM) blocks the palmitoylation-dependent Wnt–WLS interaction in HeLa cells transfected with either WNT3A-V5 or WNT8A-V5 plasmids. Wnt-C59 (100 nM) prevents incorporation of palmitate into WNT3A in HeLa cells transfected with WNT3A-V5, consistent with inhibition of PORCN activity. Wnt-C59 (100 nM) inhibits the activity of all splice variants of murine PORCN in PORCN-null HT1080 cells transfected with PORCN. Wnt-C59 is a nanomolar inhibitor of mammalian PORCN acyltransferase activity and blocks activation of all evaluated human Wnts. Wnt-C59 does not significantly inhibit the proliferation of any of 46 tested cancer cell lines in vitro at concentrations that completely inhibit PORCN.  Wnt-C59 is capable to significantly inhibit proliferation and comparable to the ICG-001 treated NMuMG (NMG) cells. Wnt-C59 inhibits sphere formation by threefold in NMuMG (NMG) cells, which is dependent on Wnt10b-secretion. Wnt-C59 inhibits proliferation of human MDA-MB 231 cells by >50%.  Wnt-C59 (a Porcupine inhibitor) blocks radiolabel incorporation of [125I]iodo-pentadecanoate in mouse L-Wnt3a cells transfected with Flag-Porcupine. 
|In vivo||Wnt-C59 concentration remains greater than 10-fold above the in vitro IC50 for at least 16 hours following a single oral dose (5 mg/kg) in mice. Wnt-C59 (10 mg/kg) prevents growth of MMTV-WNT1 tumors in female nude mice orthotopically transplanted with independent MMTV-WNT1 tumors. Wnt-C59 (10 mg/kg) decreases Wnt pathway activity and decreased proliferation in MMTV-WNT1 tumors in female nude mice orthotopically transplanted with independent MMTV-WNT1 tumors as evident by decreased expression of β-catenin target gene expression.  Wnt-C59 (10%) topically administered 4 weeks decreases the size of dysplasia of SmoM2-expressing cells in adult K14CREER/Rosa–SmoM2 mice. |
|In vitro||DMSO||76 mg/mL (200.28 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+5% 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.
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
I want to use Wnt-C59 for i.p. injection, can you advise how to dissolve it?
S7037 Wnt-C59 can be dissolved in 2% DMSO+30% PEG 300+5% Tween 80+ddH2O at 5 mg/ml as a clear solution. After stayed for a while, the precipitation will go out. So it is recommended to prepare the solution just before use.
