YM201636 is a selective PIKfyve inhibitor with IC50 of 33 nM, less potent to p110α and insensitive to Fabl (yeast orthologue). YM-201636 suppresses the growth of liver cancer via the induction of autophagy.

Validation study for vacuolin-1 and YM201636. (A) HeLa cells were treated with 3 lM vacuolin-1 or YM201636 in the presence or absence of the lysosomal protease inhibitor E64d (10 μg/mL) and pepstatin A (10 μg/mL). After 24 h of treatment, cell lysates (10 μg) were separated by 10% polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, and LC3 was detected via immunoblotting.

YM201636 potently inhibits mammalian PIKfyve with an IC50 of 33 nM but not yeast orthologue Fab1 with an IC50 of >5 μM, exhibiting around 100-fold selectivity for PtdIns3P p110α with an IC50 of 3 μM. YM201636 (0.8 μM) significantly decreases the production of PtdIns(3,5)P2 by 80% in serum-starved NIH3T3 cells followed by serum stimulation with no effect on serum-stimulated protein kinase B (PKB) Ser 473 phosphorylation. YM-201636 reversibly impairs endosomal trafficking in NIH3T3 cells by blocking PIKfyve and PtdIns(3,5)P2 production, mimicking the effect produced by depleting PIKfyve with siRNA. YM-201636 (0.8 μM) also significantly reduces retroviruses budding from cells by 80%, apparently through interfering with the endosomal sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT) machinery.  In 3T3L1 adipocytes, YM-201636 inhibits basal and insulin-activated 2-deoxyglucose uptake with an IC50 of 54 nM, with almost complete inhibition at doses as low as 160 nM. YM-201636 (0.1 μM) has also been shown to completely block insulin-dependent activation of class IA PI 3-kinase.  Although not involved in NPM-ALK-dependent proliferation and migration, YM201636 (0.4 μM) strongly reduces invasive capacities of NPM-ALK-expressing cells and their capacity to degrade the extracellular matrix.  YM201636 treatment blocks the continuous recycling of junctional proteins claudin-1 and claudin-2 in MDCK cells, leading to the intracellular accumulation and delay of epithelial barrier formation.

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 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.
