Description T0901317 is a potent and selective agonist for both LXR and FXR, with EC50 of ~50 nM and 5 μM, respectively; it inhibits nuclear factor/κB (NF/κB).
Targets&IC50 LXR:50 nM(EC50), FXR:5 μM(EC50)
In vitro T0901317 acts through LXR and in concert with its RXR heterodimerization partner induces the expression of the ABCA1 reverse cholesterol transporter. T0901317 upregulates expression of the ABCA1 gene associated with cholesterol efflux regulation and HDL metabolism.[1] T0901317 displays an EC50 of ~ 5 μM for activation of bile acid farnesoid X receptors (FXRs), 10-fold more potent than natural FXR ligand chenodeoxycholic acid. [2] T0901317, is also a high-affinity ligand for the xenobiotic receptor pregnane X receptor (PXR). T0901317 binds and activates PXR with the same nanomolar potency with which it stimulates LXR activity. T0901317 induces expression not only of LXR target genes, but also of PXR target genes in cells and animals, including the scavenger receptor CD36. [3] T0901317 decreases amyloid-β production in primary neurons in vitro. [4] T0901317 is found to directly bind to RORα and RORγ with high affinity (Ki = 132 and 51 nM, respectively), resulting in the modulation of the receptor's ability to interact with transcriptional cofactor proteins. T0901317 represses RORα/γ-dependent transactivation of ROR-responsive reporter genes and in HepG2 cells reduces recruitment of steroid receptor coactivator-2 by RORα at an endogenous ROR target gene (G6Pase). [5]
In vivo T0901317 treatment of 11-week-old APP23 mice for 6 days shows a significant increase in ABCA1 expression and a decrease in the ratio of soluble APP (sAPP)β- to sAPPα-cleavage products. Most importantly, the treatment causes a statistically significant reduction in the levels of soluble Aβ40 and of Aβ42 in the brain these mice. [4]

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
