# What is EC80?

## What is EC80?

Alex, With EC50, you can calculate EC whatever, by definition, EC80 is the drug concentration that gives 80% of Emax. In the sigmoid equation, replace E with 0.8*Emax and solve for C, then you will have. EC80=(0.8/(1-0.8))**(1/GAMMA)*EC50.

**How is pEC50 calculated?**

The pEC50 is defined as the negative logarithm of the EC50. If the EC50 equals 1 micromolar (10-6 molar), the log(EC50) is -6 and the pEC50 is 6.

**What is logEC50?**

The logEC50 (log molar) is -5.62 with a 95% confidence interval ranging from -6.07 to -4.82. Three things to notice: • The confidence interval is fairly wide. This is because the data have some scatter and also because we are fitting the EC50 plus three other parameters (the top and bottom plateaus and the slope).

### How do you calculate Emax and EC50?

parms E0 = 20.575 Emax = 68.875 ED50 = 1 hill = 0.01831; model response = Emax + (E0 * concentration**hill) / (ED50**hill + concentration**hill);…Dose Response Modeling: calculating EC50, ED50 by Fitting Emax Model using SAS Proc NLIN.

Concentration | Response |
---|---|

0.1 | 20.575 |

0.25 | 40.525 |

0.5 | 26.15 |

0.75 | 26.35 |

**How do you calculate ug mL concentration?**

The simple formula is: ( µg/mL ) = ( µM ) * ( MW in KD) , ( ng/mL ) = ( nM ) * ( MW in KD) , ( pg/mL ) = ( pM ) * ( MW in KD) . For example: If the protein molar concentration is labeled as 2 µM, and the MW of the protein is 40 KD, then this protein product’s mass concentration will be 2 ( µM ) * 40 ( KD ) = 80 µg/mL.

**What is pIC50 value?**

Simply stated, pIC50 is the negative log of the IC50 value when converted to molar. For example, an IC50 of 1 uM is 1 x10^-6 M and that’s equal to a pIC50 of 6. An IC50 of a nanomolar compound is 1 x10^-9 M, which is a pIC50 of 9.

## What is IC50 of a drug?

Abstract. Half-maximal inhibitory concentration (IC50) is the most widely used and informative measure of a drug’s efficacy. It indicates how much drug is needed to inhibit a biological process by half, thus providing a measure of potency of an antagonist drug in pharmacological research.

**What is EC50 in Elisa?**

EC50 or the concentration of antibody that gives half-maximal binding is determined by direct and saturable binding of a rAB dilution series to both target antigen and a non-specific control protein. An estimate of affinity is interpreted from one-half the concentration at which rAB binding first achieves saturation.

**What is EC50 of a drug?**

EC. 50. The parameter EC50 abbreviates for ‘half maximal effective concentration’. In a pharmacological context, this can be the concentration of a drug that is necessary to cause half of the maximum possible effect.

### Why do we calculate IC50?

Half-maximal inhibitory concentration (IC50) is the most widely used and informative measure of a drug’s efficacy. It indicates how much drug is needed to inhibit a biological process by half, thus providing a measure of potency of an antagonist drug in pharmacological research.

**Why is IC50 important?**

IC50 value of the drug indicates the toxicity of the drug to other disease causing organisms. IC50 is a quantitative measure that shows how much a particular inhibitory drug/substance/extract/fraction is needed to inhibit a biological component by 50%.

**How do you dilute ug mL?**

1. For example, take any amount e.g. 5 ml of 6.26ug/ml sol and dilute with equal vol of solvent (5ml). This gives you a solution with the concentration of 3.13ug/ml). 2.

## How do you convert to pIC50?

**What is IC50 in MTT assay?**

The IC50 is defined as “the concentration of an inhibitor where the response (or binding) is reduced by half.” So, if you are testing viability via an MTT assay, the dose of cytotoxic compound at which you achieve 50% viability will be the IC50.

**Why is IC50 calculated?**

IC50 represents the concentration at which a substance exerts half of its maximal inhibitory effect. This value is typically used to characterize an antagonist of a biological process (ex. phosphorylation). In pharmacology, it is an important measure of potency for a given agent.
