Frequently Asked Questions are available for this Product.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Inhibits ATPase, alkaline phosphatase and tyrosine phosphatase. Decavanadate, which is formed at acidic pH, inhibits inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3)-induced Ca2+ release from endocrine cells and blocks IP3 binding to its receptor in brain tissue.

Sodium orthovandate suppresses the activation of p53-mediated apoptosis triggered in response to radiation. It reduces the detrimental effects of hematopoietic syndrome, hematopoiesis and delayed genotoxic effects of induced by total body irradiation of mice.24 In combination with menadione, orthovandate prevents the migration of detached human glioma cells in response to anti-cancer drugs.25

Packaging

10, 50, 250 g in poly bottle

Application

Sodium orthovandate was used to prepare the stop solution in dephosphorylation assay of insulin receptor kinase.26 It was one of the reagents used in the development of Matrix ChIP that utilizes surface-immobilized antibodies.27

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I prepare solutions of Product S6508, Sodium Orthovanadate?
Solutions of Product S6508, Sodium Orthovanadate, prepared as 1 mM in water (or higher if desired) and adjusted down to pH 10 can be aliquotted in plastic tubes and stored at -20°C. To ensure the presence of monomers, solutions should be heated to boiling until translucent and pH readjusted to 10. Click on the following link to view the product information sheet, which has more details: http://www.sigmaaldrich.com/etc/medialib/docs/Sigma/Product_Information_Sheet/1/s6508pis.Par.0001.File.tmp/s6508pis.pdf
