Cell Research
Human HepG2 cells are cultured in Eagle's Minimal Essential Medium (ATCC) containing 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS), 100 U/mL penicillin and 100 μg/mL streptomycin. The absence of Mycoplasma contamination in HepG2 cultures is confirmed using the Lonza MycoAlert Mycoplasma Detection Kit. Cells are treated with 10 μM LMPTP inhibitor 1 in serum-starvation media (0.1% FBS) overnight, following which cells are stimulated with 10 nM bovine insulin for 5 min at 37°C. For detection of IR tyrosine phosphorylation by immunoprecipitation/Western blotting, cells are lysed in radioimmunoprecipitation assay buffer containing 1 mM phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride, 10 μg/mL aprotinin/leupeptin, 10 mM sodium orthovanadate, 5 mM sodium fluoride, and 2 mM sodium pyrophosphate, and the IR is immunoprecipitated using the anti-IRβ Ab. IR tyrosine phosphorylation of immunoprecipitates is determined by Western blotting with the anti-pIR/pIGFR-Y1162/Y1163 Ab [1].
Animal Research
LMPTP inhibitor 1 is administered to male B6 or Acp1fl/fl albumin-Cre+ DIO mice at 0.05% w/w in high-fat diet (HFD) rodent chow. Control groups consist of male B6 or Acp1fl/fl albumin-Cre+ littermate mice administered HFD rodent chow alone. Mice are allowed food and water ad libitum and weighed daily. Randomization is not used in these experiments; rather littermate mice are assigned to treatment or control groups in a manner to maintain similar mean body weights between the 2 groups at the start of the study. Insulin-induced liver IR phosphorylation, IPGTT, and fasting insulin levels are assessed after treatment. Diabetic (displaying overnight [13 hr] fasting blood glucose levels ≥140 mg/dL) B6 DIO mice are used in experiments to assess IPGTT and fasting insulin levels [1].
Kinase Assay Phosphatase assays are performed in buffer containing 50 mM Bis-Tris, pH 6.0, 1 mM DTT and 0.01% Triton X-100 at 37°C. For assays conducted with 3-O-methylfluorescein phosphate (OMFP) as substrate, fluorescence is monitored continuously at λex = 485 and λem = 525 nm. For assays conducted with para-nitrophenyl phosphate (pNPP) as substrate, the reaction is stopped by addition of 2X reaction volume of 1 M NaOH, and absorbance is measured at 405 nm. IC50 values are determined from plots of LMPTP inhibitor 1 concentration versus percentage of enzyme activity. For inhibitor selectivity assays, each PTP is incubated with either 0.4 mM OMFP or 5 mM pNPP in the presence of 40 μM LMPTP inhibitor 1 or DMSO. Equal units of enzyme activity, comparable to the activity of 10 nM human LMPTP-A, are used. For the inhibitor reversibility assay, 50 nM human LMPTP-A is pre-incubated with 10 μM LMPTP inhibitor 1 or DMSO for 5 min. The enzyme is diluted 100X in phosphatase assay buffer containing 0.4 mM OMFP and fluorescence is measured at the indicated time points [1].

  • 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

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

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed n the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
