Biochem/physiol Actions

Inhibits the hydrolysis of PPI to IP3, which leads to a decrease in cytosolic free calcium. Inhibits the coupling of G protein-phospholipase C activation, while remaining unaffected by production of cAMP.

Preparation Note

U-73122 hydrate is soluble in ethanol (approx. 0.7 mg/ml or ≤ 5 mg/ml with heating), chloroform (approx. 10 mg/ml) and DMSO (approx. 0.9 mg/ml or ≤ 2.6 mg/ml with heating). U-73122 hydrate is insoluble in water.


U-73122 hydrate has been used for studying the role of phospholipase C (PLC) signaling in modulating epithelial Na+ channel (ENaC) function in gerbil Reissner′s membranes (RMs)1. U-73122 has also been used to study local calcium responses in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs)2.
