Calpain inhibitor (IC50 = 0.09 μM) that activates p53-dependent apoptosis in tumor cell lines. Increases activated p53, p21 and caspase levels and promotes cell cycle arrest through inhibition of cyclin D degradation in vitro. Also attenuates ischemia/reperfusion injury in cardiomyocytes, hepatocytes and renal tubular cells through downregulation of iNOS and COX-2 expression.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 383.53. 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||2.61 mL||13.04 mL||26.07 mL|
|5 mM||0.52 mL||2.61 mL||5.21 mL|
|10 mM||0.26 mL||1.3 mL||2.61 mL|
|50 mM||0.05 mL||0.26 mL||0.52 mL|
