Cell experiment: [1]

Cell lines

Normal LCL cells ATM-null LCL cells

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is >10 mM. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37 °C for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while.Stock solution can be stored below -20°C for several months.

Reaction Conditions

10 μM, 1 hour


The sensitivity of cells to olaparib is mediated by absence of Ataxia Telangiectasia Mutated (ATM) activity. Immunoblot analysis revealed that in ATM wild-type LCLs, but not ATM null LCLs, phosphorylation of the ATM-dependent targets ATM S1981 and SMC1 S966 was induced in a dose-dependent manner by olaparib.

Animal experiment: [1]

Animal models

Granta-519–engrafted NOD/SCID mice

Dosage form

Intraperitoneal injection, 50 mg/kg/d, for 14 days


Analysis of the percentage of human CD45 staining by FACS analysis revealed a significant reduction in the percentage of Granta-519 cells in the bone marrow and a trend toward reduced tumor cell load in the spleen of mice treated with olaparib compared with those receiving vehicle alone.

Other notes

Please test the solubility of all compounds indoor, and the actual solubility may slightly differ with the theoretical value. This is caused by an experimental system error and it is normal.

Olaparib (4-(3-4-fluorophenyl) methyl-1(2H)-one), as known as AZD2281 or KU0059436, is a novel, selective and potent inhibitor of both poly adenosine diphosphate-ribose polymeras-1 (PARP-1) and poly adenosine diphosphate-ribose polymeras-2 (PARP-2).  Having been successfully used in the treatment of tumors harboring BRCA mutations, olaparib strongly inhibits the growth of BRCA2-deficient mouse mannary tumor cell lines demonstrating cytotoxicity. In previous researches treating non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC), olaparib increased the radiation sensitivity of NSCLC cells, grown as xenografts in nude mice, following radiation and increased vascular perfusion in Calu-6 tumors established in a dorsal window chamber (DWC) model.

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 ddH2O, 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.
