|Reconstitution||Before reconstitution, we recommend a brief spin to drive down any material dislodged from the bottom of the tube. The compound is soluble in DMSO.|
|Stability||The powder is stable for at least 2 year if stored at -20 °C. The dissolved compound is stable for at least 1 month at 4 °C, but should be stored in aliquots at -20 °C for longer term. Protect from light.|
|Purity||Greater than 98% as determined by LC/MS analysis. LC/MS and/or NMR data available upon request.|
|Country of Origin||USA|
A selective inhibitor against purified MEK, exhibiting a Ki of 1 nM against activated MEK1 and MEK2. It has been shown that 1 µM PD0325901 combined with 3 µM CHIR99021 (2i) prevents cell differentiation and sustains self-renewal of murine embryonic stem cells.
