Description

General description

Hydrocortisone for use in epithelial and endothelial adherent cell culture applications.

Reconstitution

To prepare 50 μg/mL stock solution; add 1 mL absolute ethanol, gently swirl to dissolve, add 19 mL sterile medium while mixing.

Physical form

powder-RT; stock-frozen in working aliquots, avoid repeated freeze/thaw

Application

Hydrocortisone is used for the following applications:
• Used in myogenic induction and identification
• Used in long-term stromal cultures and methylcellulose cultures (one of the components in the culture medium)
• Used in adipogenic differentiation (one of the components in adipogenic medium)
• Used in cell culture: The human mammary epithelial cell MCF-10A cells were maintained in DMEM/F12 and supplemented with hydrocortisone along with other components
• The SUM149 cell line was established from a primary IBC and grown in FBS supplemented with Ham′s F12 medium containing insulin and hydrocortisone
• Used in differentiation assays of melanoma spheroid cells

Biochem/physiol Actions

Primary glucocorticoid secreted by the adrenal cortex. It has three times the anti-inflammatory potency of corticosterone but much lower Na2+ retention potency.
