Inhibitor of DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) (IC50 = 15 μM), an enzyme involved in the non-homologous end-joining (NHEJ) pathway of double-stranded DNA break (DSB) repair in human cells. Displays 100-fold higher potency than its analog vanillin and does not affect PKC activity. Produces lethal effects on cisplatin-treated D5037 cells upon continuous exposure.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 211.15. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to solvent of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.
|Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass||1 mg||5 mg||10 mg|
|1 mM||4.74 mL||23.68 mL||47.36 mL|
|5 mM||0.95 mL||4.74 mL||9.47 mL|
|10 mM||0.47 mL||2.37 mL||4.74 mL|
|50 mM||0.09 mL||0.47 mL||0.95 mL|
The reconstitution calculator allows you to quickly calculate the volume of a reagent to reconstitute your vial. Simply enter the mass of reagent and the target concentration and the calculator will determine the rest.

Cell Cycle & DNA Damage Repair Poster
In normal cells, each stage of the cell cycle is tightly regulated, however in cancer cells many genes and proteins that are involved in the regulation of the cell cycle are mutated or over expressed. Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the stages of the cell cycle and DNA repair. It also highlights strategies for enhancing replicative stress in cancer cells to force mitotic catastrophe and cell death.
