100 mg in glass bottle

Preparation Note

Thalidomide is soluble in DMSO at a concentration that is more than 20 mg/ml. It is insoluble in water and ethanol.

Application

Thalidomide has been used to study its neuropathological effects in mouse models of Alzheimer′s disease (AD). This study reported that long term administration of thalidomide causes beta-secretase inhibition and subsequently alleviates amyloid-like pathology. Furthermore, thalidomide has also been used to evaluate its teratogenic functions. Thalidomide was found to affect endodermal differentiation and neural development in differentiating human embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells.

Biochem/physiol Actions

(±)-Thalidomide selectively inhibits biosynthesis of tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α). It also functions as an inhibitor of angiogenesis, an immunosuppressive agent, a sedative and a teratogen. Furthermore, thalidomide is known to exhibit antitumor functions in refractory multiple myeloma.
