A potent platinum-based antineoplastic drug. Its mode of action involves formation of inter- and intrastrand DNA adducts which activate signaling pathways culminating in apoptosis. Platinated DNA adducts also enhance poisoning of DNA topoisomerase I. Cisplatin synergizes with a variety of anticancer agents. Tumor cells rapidly develop resistance to cisplatin and numerous agents are available to block or reverse resistance.

Product Details

Alternative Name:cis-Platinum(ll)diamine dichloride
MI:14: 2317
Purity:≥98% (HPLC)
Appearance:Off-white to orange powder.
Solubility:Soluble in dimethyl formamide (16mg/ml) or DMSO (10mg/ml); sparingly soluble in water; insoluble in 100% ethanol.
Shipping:Ambient Temperature
Long Term Storage:Ambient
Handling:Protect from light.
Technical Info/Product Notes:In aqueous solution cis-trans isomerization of cisplatin occurs. Isomerization is increased at elevated temperatures. Stability of cisplatin in aqueous solutions was enhanced by increasing the sodium chloride (NaCl) concentration to 0.9% and was adversely affected in alkaline solutions such as sodium bicarbonate solutions. Further, even though soluble in DMSO we do not recommend to dissolve cisplatin in DMSO. The DMSO inserts itself into the ligand. It is recommended to prepare all solutions fresh and protect from light.
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only
