    Dexamethasone is practically insoluble in water. It is soluble in ethanol, methanol, acetone, dioxane and slightly soluble in chloroform. 

  2. How should I reconstitute Product D4902, Dexamethasone, for tissue culture use?

    The tissue culture grade product is dissolved in ethanol at a concentration of 1 mg/ml forming a clear, colorless solution.  It is also possible to prepare a stock solution of dexamethasone in DMSO at 1.5 mM. 

  3. Do you have references for the use of Product D4902, Dexamethasone?

    References can be found on the product detail page:Migliorati, G., et al., Dexamethasone and interleukins modulate apoptosis of murine thymocytes and peripheral T-lymphocytes. Pharmacol Res., 30(1), 43-52 (1994).Bansal, N., et al., Apoptosis: mode of cell death induced in T cell leukemia lines by dexamethasone and other agents. FASEB J. 5(2), 211-6 (1991).Shiao, R.T., et al., Dexamethasone and suramin inhibit cell proliferation and interleukin-6-mediated immunoglobulin secretion in human lymphoid and multiple myeloma cell lines. Leuk. Lymphoma, 17(5-6), 485-494 (1995).Migliorati, G., et al, Dexamethasone induces apoptosis in mouse natural killer cells and cytotoxic T lymphocytes. Immunology, 81(1), 21-26 (1994).

  4. How long is Product D4902, Dexamethasone, stable in solution?

    Dexamethasone solutions are stable for at least 30 days when stored at 4 °C and protected from light. The solution may be aliquoted and stored at -20 °C. However, insufficient information is available to assess the shelf-life of the frozen solution.

  5. What cell lines has Product D4902, Dexamethasone, been tested on?

Mitochondrial Stress and ROS

Oxidative stress is mediated, in part, by reactive oxygen species produced by multiple cellular processes and controlled by cellular antioxidant mechanisms such as enzymatic scavengers or antioxidant modulators. Free radicals, such as reactive oxygen species, cause cellular damage via cellular.
