Description ITE is a potent endogenous agonist of aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) (Ki : 3 nM), has immunosuppressive activity.
Targets&IC50 AhR:3 nM (Ki)
In vitro ITE dose- and time-dependently inhibited proliferation of HPAECs with a maximum inhibition of 83% at 20 μM after 6 days of treatment. ITE rapidly decreased AhR protein levels, while it increased mRNA levels of cytochrome P450 (CYP), family 1, member A1 (CYP1A1) and B1 (CYP1B1), indicating activation of the AhR/CYP1A1 and AhR/CYP1B1 pathways in HPAECs. The AhR siRNA significantly suppressed AhR protein expression, whereas it did not significantly alter ITE-inhibited growth of HPAECs[1].
In vivo ITE diminishes colitis pathology through induction of Tregs; reduces inflammatory cytokines, inflammation score, and macrophage frequency; and induces DCs resulting in amelioration of colitis. Therefore, nontoxic endogenous ITE promotes the induction of Tregs and may be useful for the treatment of IBD[2].
Cell Research Immunohistochemistry was performed to localize AhR expression in human lung tissues. The crystal violet method and MTT assay were used to determine ITE's effects on growth of HPAECs. The AhR activation in HPAECs was confirmed using Western blotting and RT-qPCR. The role of AhR in ITE-affected proliferation of HPAECs was assessed using siRNA knockdown method followed by the crystal violet method[1]
Animal Research At the start of DSS induction, mice received 100 μl by intraperitoneal injection of vehicle and ITE (10 mg/kg body wt) twice a week on each Monday and Thursday until week 6 at the end point of the experiment. During a pilot study, we used several (5, 10, 20, 40, and 80 mg/kg body wt) doses of ITE and noticed that the 10-mg/kg dose was the lowest dose giving maximum protection. Therefore, Used this dose in entire study. At the experimental end point blood was collected by tail-vein bleedings and serum was obtained following centrifugation. For comparison, a similar treatment was also given to normal BL/6 mice to see the effect of ITE alone[2].

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
