Gene Information

Application

Thalidomide has been used to study its teratogenic effects in chicken embryos and human embryonic cells. This study reported that thalidomide causes limb defects by stabilizing PTEN, inhibiting the expression of Akt and activating caspase-dependent apoptosis. Thalidomide has also been used for studying glutathione mediated teratogenic resistance in mouse embryos.

Packaging

10, 100 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

(-)-Thalidomide selectively inhibits biosynthesis of tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α). (R)-Thalidomide is called "safe enantiomer", but it can be converted in the body to (S)-isomer.

Preparation Note

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