Description KD025 is an orally available, and specific ROCK2 inhibitor (IC50/Ki: 60/41 nM).
Targets&IC50 ROCK2 :ic50 60nM,  
In vivo In mice, KD025 (200 mg/kg, p.o.) inhibits ROCK activity in brain and heart, as measured by the degree of MYPT1 phosphorylation. KD025 (200 mg/kg, p.o.) significantly reduces the area of perfusion defect, and reduces tissue loss in the ipsilateral hemisphere. [1] In a collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) mouse model, KD025 (200 mg/kg, i.p.) downregulates the progression of collagen-induced arthritis via targeting of the Th17-mediated pathway. [2] KD025 ()150 mg/kg, i.p. or p.o.) effectively ameliorates cGVHD in a full MHC-mismatch model of multi-organ system cGVHD with bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome and a minor MHC-mismatch model of sclerodermatous GVHD. [3]
Kinase Assay Cell-free enzyme assays are performed to determine the selective inhibition of ROCK1 and ROCK2 by SLx-2119. Reactions are performed on non-binding surface microplates. Four mU of human ROCK1 and ROCK2 are used to phosphorylate 30 µM of the synthetic ROCK peptide substrate S6 Long, prepared at American Peptide with the addition of 10 µM ATP, containing 33P-ATP in the presence of 10 mM Mg2+, 50 mM Tris, pH 7.5, 0.1 mM EGTA and 1 mM DTT at room temperature. One unit is the amount of kinase needed to catalyze the transfer of 1 nmol phosphate/min to the peptide. The reactions are allowed to proceed for 45 minutes and then stopped with 3% phosphoric acid to a final concentration of 1%. The reactions are captured on phospho cellulose filtration microplates and washed with 75 mM phosphoric acid and methanol using a vacuum manifold. Phosphorylation is measured on a Perkin-Elmer MicroBeta 1450.
Cell Research
SLx-2119 is dissolved in DMSO to obtain a stock solution of 20 mM. Western blots are used to determine whether HMVEC, NHDF and PASMC express ROCK1 and ROCK2. The cells are incubated for 24 hours in 3 mL culture media containing SLx-2119. All cells are collected at passage 3 and lysed on ice in 25 mM Tris-HCl pH 7.5, 150 mM NaCl, 0.5% tritonX-100, 10% glycerol, 10 mM NaF and a protease inhibitor cocktail. Protein concentration is determined using a BCA protein assay reagent. Cell lysates (35 µg) are separated on 7.5% or 12.5% SDS-PAGE polyacrylamide gels and transferred to PVDF membrane filters. Membranes are blocked in 5% non-fat milk in TBS containing 0.1% Tween 20. Blots are probed with antibodies to ROCK1, ROCK2 or actin and washed well before incubation with HRP-conjugated secondary antibodies and visualization with an enhanced chemiluminescence (ECL) kit.

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
