Description

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions are available for this Product.

Packaging

10 mg in poly bottle

Preparation Note

TTNPB dissolves in CHCL3/MeOH (1/1) at 9.80 - 10.20 mg/ml to yield a clear, colorless to light yellow solution. It is also soluble at 10 mM in ethanol and at 25 mM in DMSO.

Application

TTNPB has been used for transcriptional assays in 293T cells4. It has also been used as a RAR-agonist in cultured human cord blood CD34+CD38-lin- cells5.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Selective and highly potent retinoic acid analog with affinity for retinoic acid receptors (RAR) α, β, and γ, which are nuclear transcription factors. Produces ligand-activated transcription of genes that possess retinoic acid responsive elements.
