Description Reversine, a small synthetic purine analogue (2, 6-disubstituted purine), is a potent inhibitior of Aurora A/B/C(IC50s=150-500 nM).
Targets&IC50 A3 : 0.66μM(Ki) ,   Aurora A : ic50 12nM ,   Aurora B : ic50 13nM ,   Aurora C : ic50 20nM
Kinase Assay Radioligand Binding Assays: Each tube in the A3 AR competitive binding assay contains 100 μL of membrane suspension (20 μg of protein), 50 μL of [125I]4-amino-3-iodobenzyl)adenosine-5′-N-methyluronamide (0.5 nM), and 50 μL of increasing concentrations of the test ligands in Tris-HCl buffer (50 mM, pH 7.4) containing 10 mM MgCl2 and 1 mM EDTA. Nonspecific binding is determined using 10 mM 5′-N-ethylcarboxamidoadenosine in the buffer. The mixtures are incubated at 25°C for 60 min. Binding reactions are terminated by filtration through Whatman GF/B filters under reduced pressure using a MT-24 cell harvester. Filters are washed three times with 9 mL of ice-cold buffer. Radioactivity is determined using a Beckman γ-counter, and the percent inhibition is calculated.
Cell Research
Cell viability of different tumor cell lines is assessed using ATPlite 1step. Briefly, 2 × 104 cells for each well are plated in a 96-well plate in presence of crescent quantity of reversine. After 72 h, the plates are recovered and 100 μL ATPlite solution is added to each well. The plates are shaken for 2 min at 700 rpm and luminescence is measured using EnVision Multilabel plate reader. Each sample is analyzed in triplicate.(Only for Reference)
Cell lines: HL-60, A375, HeLa, HCT-116, T47D, and MCF-7 cell lines

Molecular Weight Calculator

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 in 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.
