Description Triciribine is a DNA synthesis inhibitor, and it also inhibits Akt and HIV-1/2.
Targets&IC50 Akt ,   HIV-1
In vivo 1 mg/kg/day i.p. treated Triciribine inhibits OVCAR3, OVCAR8 and PANC1 tumor growth, which overexpressing Akt, by 90%, 88% and 80% in nude mice, respectively. However, Triciribine has little effect on the growth of OVCAR5 and COLO357 cells. [4]
Kinase Assay Akt Phosphorylation Changes Assay: Cells are grown to 80%–90% confluency and stimulated for 5–10 minutes with 1–10 ng/mL of epidermal growth factor or platelet derived growth factor (PDGF)–AA with or without 10–20 mM of U0126 or LY-294002. Protein lysates (5–20 μg) are separated by 12%–15% SDS PAGE and analyzed by Western blot for Akt, phosphorylated Akt (phospho-Ser 473), MAPK, and phosphorylated MAPK (p44/42 phospho-Thr202/Tyr204) antibodies (1:1000).
Cell Research
Triciribine is evaluated for cytotoxicity by seeding CEM-SS cells at a density of 1 × 104 cells/well in growth medium, using a 96-well flat-bottom plate. Serial fivefold dilutions of Triciribine are prepared in growth medium and added to the wells as a second overlay. After a 48-hours incubation at 37 °C, the cells are pulse labeled with [3H]dThd (1 μCi per well, specific activity 20 Ci/mmol) for 6 hours and the cells are harvested to measure total DNA synthesis.(Only for Reference)

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 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.
