Description Artemisinin is an ancient Chinese herbal therapy for malarial fevers which has been recently found to have potent activity against many forms of malarial organisms, including chloroquine-resistant Plasmodium falciparum.
Targets&IC50 Others
In vivo Artemisinin (50, 100 or 200 mg/kg b.wt/day, p.o.) prevents isoflurane-induced working memory impairments as observed in T-maze test. Artemisinin enhances spatial navigation and memory of rats exposed to isoflurane. Artemisinin-treated rats exhibit markedly better performance in comparison with isoflurane-alone-exposed rats[4].
Kinase Assay Briefly, PC12 cells are lysed in lysis buffer and centrifuged at 12,500×g for 5 min 15 mL of cell lysate is incubated with 50 mL of 2X substrate working solution at room temperature for 30 min in 96-well plates. The fluorescence intensity is then determined by Infinite M200 PRO Multimode Microplate at an excitation wavelength of 490 nm and emission at 520 nm. The fluorescence intensity of each sample is normalized to the protein concentration of sample. All values of % caspase 3/7 activities are normalized to the control group.
Cell Research
Artemisinin is diluted in 0.01% DMSO. For this purpose, cells are cultivated in 96-well plates in DMEM, supplemented with insulin. The artemisinin, Dox, and DDP are added to media at different concentrations and the cells are cultivated for either 24 or 48 h. For this purpose artemisinin is diluted in 0.01% DMSO in media. After this time, 10 µL of the MTT dye solution (5 mg/mL in phosphate buffer saline) is added to the cells; the cells are incubated at the same conditions for 3 h. After centrifugation (1500 rpm, 5 min) the supernatant is removed. 100 μL of dimethyl sulfoxide is added to each well, to dissolve formazan. The absorption is measured, using a multi-well spectrophotometer at a wavelength of 540 nm.

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
