Storage & Solubility Information
Description A-674563 is an Akt1 inhibitor with Ki of 11 nM, modest potent to PKA and >30-fold selective for Akt1 over PKC.
Targets&IC50 Akt1:11 nM(Ki)
In vitro A-674563 is achieved from A-443654 by replacing the indole with a phenyl moiety and getting oral activity. A-674563 slows proliferation of tumor cells with EC50 of 0.4 μM. [1] A-674563 does not inhibit Akt phosphorylation per se, but blocks the phosphorylation of Akt downstream targets in a dose-dependent manner. A-674563 induced Akt blockade results in decreased STS cell downstream target phosphorylation and tumor cell growth inhibiton. A-674563 induces G2 cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in STS cells. [2]
In vivo 20 mg/kg A-674563 increases plasma insulin in an oral glucose tolerance test. A-674563 shows no significant monotherapy tumor inhibitory activity; the efficacy of the combination therapy is significantly improved compared to paclitaxel monotherapy. [1] A674563-treated (20 mg/kg/bid, p.o.) mice exhibits slower tumor growth and more than 50% decrease in the tumor volume at the termination of the study compared with that in control group. [2] A-674563 is identified to have drastically improved PK profile with oral bioavailability of 67% in mouse, but is 70-fold less active than A-443654. [3]
Kinase Assay Akt Kinase Assay: The kinase assay uses His-Akt1 and a biotinylated mouse Bad peptide as substrate. The kinase assay is carried out at room temperature for 30 minutes in 50 μL of reaction buffer [20 mM HEPES, pH 7.5, 10 mM MgCl2, 0.1% (w/v) Triton X-100, 5 μM ATP (Km = 40 μM), 5 μM peptide (Km = 15 μM), 1 mM DTT, 60 ng of Akt1, and 0.5 μCi of [γ-33P]ATP] in the presence of different concentrations of A-674563. Each reaction is stopped by adding 50 μL of termination buffer (0.1 M EDTA, pH 8.0, and 4 M NaCl). The biotinylated Bad peptides are immobilized on streptavidin-coated FLASH plates. After being washed with PBS-Tween 20 (0.05%), the 33P phosphopeptide captured on the FLASH plates is measured with a TopCount Packard Instruments γ counter.
Cell Research The cells on 96-well plates are gently washed with 200 μL of PBS. Alamar Blue reagent is diluted 1:10 in normal growth media. The diluted Alamar Blue reagent (100 M) is added to each well on the 96-well plates and incubated until the reaction is complete as per manufacturer's instructions. Analysis is done using an fmax Fluorescence Microplate Reader, set at the excitation wavelength of 544 nm and emission wavelength of 595 nm. Data are analyzed using SOFTmax PRO software provided by the manufacturer. (Only for Reference)

Molarity Calculator allows you to calculate the

  • Mass of a compound required to prepare a solution of known volume and concentration
  • Volume of solution required to dissolve a compound of known mass to a desired concentration
  • Concentration of a solution resulting from a known mass of compound in a specific volume
See Example

An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
Enter 197.13 into the Molecular Weight (MW) box
Enter 10 into the Concentration box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 10 into the Volume box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 19.713 mg appears in the Mass box


Calculator the dilution required to prepare a stock solution

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution
The dilution calculator is a useful tool which allows you to calculate how to dilute a stock solution of known concentration. Enter C1, C2 & V2 to calculate V1.

See Example

An example of a dilution calculation using the Tocris dilution calculator
What volume of a given 10 mM stock solution is required to make 20ml of a 50 μM solution?
Using the equation C1V1 = C2V2, where C1=10 mM, C2=50 μM, V2=20 ml and V1 is the unknown:
Enter 10 into the Concentration (start) box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 50 into the Concentration (final) box and select the correct unit (micromolar)
Enter 20 into the Volume (final) box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 100 microliter (0.1 ml) appears in the Volume (start) box
