YK-4-279-induced cell apoptosis of NB cells by Western blot assay. SH-SY5Y cells were treated with YK-4-279 (0, 0.1 μM, 0.3 μM, 1 μM, 3 μM) for 24 h. Whole cell lysates were subjected to SDS-PAGE and immunoblotted with antibodies against PARP and Caspase 3 to detect apoptosis. β-actin was detected as loading control. YK-4-279-induced apoptosis of NB cell line SH-SY5Y by FACS. Cells were treated with YK-4-279 (0, 1 μM, 3 μM) for 24 h, and then stained by PI and analyzed by FACS.

|Description||YK-4-279 is a potent inhibitor of EWS-FLI1 binding to RNA helicase A (RHA).|
YK-4-279 eliminates cyclin D levels by blocking the interaction of EWS-FLI1 with RHA in EWS-FLI1-containing TC32 cells. YK-4-279 also specifically inhibits ESFT cell growth and induces apoptosis.  YK-4-279 also inhibits ERG and ETV1 biological activity in fusion-positive prostate cancer cells, and further decreases cell motility and invasion. 
|In vivo||In vivo, YK-4-279 (1.5 mg/dose i.p.) inhibits the growth of ESFT xenograft tumors.  In mouse model, YK-4-279 selectively prevents prostate cancer growth and metastasis in fusion-positive LNCaP-luc-M6 tumors. |
|In vitro||DMSO||73 mg/mL (199.34 mM)|
|Ethanol||51 mg/mL warmed (139.26 mM)|
* 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.
Answers to questions you may have can be found in the inhibitor handling instructions. Topics include how to prepare stock solutions, how to store inhibitors, and issues that need special attention for cell-based assays and animal experiments.
