K252a is a staurosporine analog isolated from Nocardiopsis sp. soil fungi that inhibits protein kinase (PK) C, PKA, Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent kinase type II, and phosphorylase kinase with IC50 values of 470, 140, 270, and 1.7 nM, respectively.[1],[2] Because it inhibits neurotrophin receptor tyrosine kinases, K252a at 100-500 nM has been used to suppress trophoblast proliferation and increase apoptosis associated with the disruption of mitochondrial functions in cultured choriocarcinoma cells.[3] Recently, K252a has been shown to inhibit PRK1 (IC50 = 3.2 nM in vitro), a PKC-related kinase that phosphorylates histone H3 at threonine 11 and is involved in androgen-dependent gene expression.[4]

Step 2: Enter the in vivo formulation (This is only the calculator, not formulation. Please contact us first if there is no in vivo formulation at the solubility Section.)

% DMSO % % Tween 80 % saline

Calculation results:

Working concentration: mg/ml;

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL saline, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 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.
3. All of the above co-solvents are available for purchase on the GlpBio website.
