Biological Description
Chemical Properties
Storage & Solubility Information
Description Oxamflatin is an effective inhibitor of HDAC (IC50: 15.7 nM).
Targets&IC50 HDAC:15.7 nM
In vitro Oxamflatin is able to significantly inhibit DNA synthesis and cell proliferation. Oxamflatin can induce E-cadherin expression and also reduce cell viability in the MKN-45 cell line. Oxamflatin causes transcriptional activation of junD and morphological reversion in various NIH3T3-derived transformed cell lines. Oxamflatin induces an elongated cell shape with filamentous protrusions as well as the arrest of the cell cycle at the G1 phase in HeLa cells. Oxamflatin displays antiproliferative activity against various mouse and human tumor cell lines with drastic changes in the cell morphology. Oxamflatin greatly increases the transcriptional activity of the CMV promoter in a dose-dependent manner and inhibits intracellular HDAC activity[1][2][3].
In vivo The ILS of the mice treated with Oxamflatin at the dose of 50 mg/kg is calculated to be more than 67% and one mouse survived over 60 days after tumor inoculation. Injection of Oxamflatin, six times at the dose of 20 mg/kg, shows a significant increase in the days of survival (38% of ILS) [1].

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

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.
