Biological Description
Chemical Properties
Storage & Solubility Information
Description Triclosan is an antibacterial and antifungal agent.
In vitro cancer cells with triclosan at the physiologically related concentrations significantly increases the colony number of the cancer cells assessed by tumor formation assay. Triclosan-treated cells have a mesenchymal-like morphology and decrease the cell-to-cell adhesion. Triclosan-treated cells exhibit decreased E-cadherin while significantly up-regulated levels of EMT markers, namely N-cadherin, vimentin, snail and slug. Triclosan may potentiate cancer cells survival in detached condition and motility via the process of EMT[2].
In vivo Triclosan plays a pathologic role in promoting tissue fibrogenesis, leading to liver carcinogenesis. It accelerates both HCC development and its long-term effects on liver damage, accompanied by fibrosis and inflammation in mice[1].
Cell Research CV-1 cells are maintained in DMEM supplemented with 10% FBS, seeded in 96-well plates, and transfected with an expression vector containing a specific nuclear receptor and RXR, along with a luciferase reporter containing the appropriate DNA response element. The assay is first validated with known nuclear receptor ligands as positive controls. For the CAR ligand-binding assay, CV-1 cells are transiently transfected with the expression vector containing the Gal4 DNA-binding domain fused with the ligand-binding domain of murine or human CAR and cotransfected with the luciferase reporter plasmid, mh 100-luc. The day after the transfection, the positive compound of each nuclear receptor or TCS(Triclosan) is added and the cells are incubated for an additional 24 h. The luciferase activities are measured and normalized by β-gal activity.(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.
