Description IKK 16 (IKK Inhibitor VII) is a selective IκB kinase (IKK) inhibitor for IKK-2, IKK complex and IKK-1 with IC50 of 40 nM, 70 nM and 200 nM, respectively.

In vitro IKK-16 inhibits TNFα-stimulated expression of the adhesion molecules E-selectin, ICAM-1, and VCAM-1 in HUVEC cells. Although IKK-16 shows activity in the IFNγ-induced expression of β2 microglobulin or HLA-DR, its potency in these assays is 4- to 10-fold weaker. [1]
In vivo IKK-16 is orally bio-available in rats and mice, and it inhibits LPS-induced TNF-α release in vivo and neutrophil extravasion in thioglycollate-induced peritonitis.[1]
Cell Research IKK 16 is prepared in DMSO and stored, and then diluted with appropriate medium before use[2]. Human umbilical vein vascular endothelial cells line (HUVECs) are cultured in DMEM supplemented with 10% fetal bovine serum, streptomycin, and penicillin. The cells is grown at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 atmosphere. Cells are pretreated with IKK 16 (10 μmol/mL) for 1 hr. The cells are then cultured with TGF-β1 (20 ng/mL) and AT-RvD1 (20 ng/mL). After incubation, the gene expressions of Nrf2 and Smad7 are determined by RT-PCR. The protein expression of Nrf2 and IκBα are determined by Western blot[2].
Animal Research IKK 16 is prepared in DMSO and diluted with saline or PBS.Rats and MiceIKK 16 is tested in two animal models. First, its efficacy to inhibit TNFα release into plasma upon LPS-challenge in the rat is determined. IKK 16 is dosed sc (30 mg/kg) or orally (30 mg/kg) 1 h prior to the LPS-challenge. Four hours after the challenge, plasma is collected and the systemic TNFα levels are analyzed using a commercially available ELISA kit. Both routes of administration of IKK 16 at the indicated dose results in a significant inhibition of 86% (sc) and 75% (p.o.). In a second experiment, IKK 16 is also active in the thioglycollate-induced peritonitis model in the mouse. The maximal inhibition of neutrophil extravasation in this model is about 50% at a dose of 10 mg/kg sc. MiceTwo-month-old male C57BL/6 mice receive LPS (9 mg/kg body weight) and PepG (3 mg/kg body weight) in 0.9% saline (5 mL/kg body weight) intraperitoneally. Sham mice are not subjected to LPS/PepG, but are otherwise treated the same way. At 1 hour after LPS/PepG co-administration, mice are treated either with IKK 16 (1 mg/kg body weight i.v.) or vehicle (5 mL/kg body weight 10% DMSO i.v.). At 24 hours the experiment is terminated and organ and blood samples are collected for quantification of organ dysfunction and/or injury. Mice are randomly allocated into four different groups: (1) sham+vehicle (n=10); (2) sham+IKK 16 (n=3); (3) LPS/PepG+vehicle (n=9); (4) LPS/PepG+IKK 16 (n=10).They are for reference only.

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
