Description PTC-209 HBr is the hydrobromide salt of PTC-209, which is a potent and selective BMI-1 inhibitor with IC50 of 0.5 μM, and results in irreversible reduction of cancer-initiating cells (CICs).
Targets&IC50 BMI-1:0.5 μM
In vitro PTC-209 inhibits both the UTR-mediated reporter expression and endogenous BMI-1 expression in human colorectal HCT116 and human fibrosarcoma HT1080 tumor cells. PTC-209 decreases colorectal tumor cell growth in a BMI-1-dependent way. In addition, PTC-209 impairs colorectal cancer-initiating cells (CICs) through irreversible growth inhibition. [1]
In vivo PTC-209 (60 mg/kg/day, s.c.) effectively inhibits BMI-1 production in tumor tissue, and halts growth of preestablished tumors in mice bearing primary human colon cancer xenograft, human colon cancer cell lines LIM1215 or HCT116 xenografts. PTC-209 also reduces the frequency of functional colorectal CICs in vivo. [1]
Kinase Assay Untranslated region-mediated luciferase reporter expression: HEK293 cells are transfected with a GEMS reporter vector that contains the luciferase open-reading frame flanked by and under post-transcriptional control of the BMI-1 5′ and 3′ UTRs. The resulting stable cells (F8) are treated with PTC-209 or vehicle control overnight, and then luciferase reporter activity is determined using Bright-Glo assays. The assays are run in triplicate for each point, and the percentage of inhibition was calculated against vehicle control.
Cell Research To determine whether pretreatment with the inhibitor affects tumor cell growth, cells are plated with the inhibitor for 4 d in vitro and plated in limiting doses in vitro without adding further inhibitor. Trypan blue exclusion is used to count viable cells. The in vitro sphere-initiating cell frequency is calculated after inhibitor treatment by evaluating the number of wells containing spheres. For the experiments where LDAs are set up following recovery of PTC-209 treated cells, 6-well plates were seeded with 1E6 cells per well and incubated overnight. Cells are subsequently treated for 4 d in triplicate with either DMSO vehicle or PTC-209 (0.01, 0.1, 1 and 10 μM). Drug treatments are washed off and 4 mL fresh suspension medium added to all wells. To assess cell viability following the 4 d treatment window, cells are trypsinized and counted at 0, 24, 72 and 120 h after removal of the drug. Long-lasting effects of the drug treatment on sphere-forming ability are assessed by plating LDAs (50,000, 10,000, 1,000,100, 10 and 1 cell per well) using the cells obtained 120 h after the 4-d drug treatment.(Only for Reference)

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
