Inhibits agonist induced phospholipase C (PLC) activation (IC50=1-2.1 µM) in human platelets. It also inhibits agonist induced down-regulation of muscarinic receptors in SK-N-SH neuroblastoma cells. It is a useful tool to investigate receptor-mediated PI turnover in signal transduction. It is a potent inhibitor of human neutrophil adhesion to biological surfaces as well as adhesion-dependent granule exocytosis and oxidative burst. Inhibits 5-lipoxygenase in vivo and in vitro (IC50 = 30nM for recombinant enzyme and 2.4µM for PMNL homogenates).

Product Details

Alternative Name:1-(6-((17β-3-methoxyestra-1,3,5(10)-trien-17-yl)amino)hexyl)-1H-pyrrole-2,5-dione
Purity:≥98% (HPLC)
Appearance:white to off-white solid
Solubility:Soluble in methylene chloride or chloroform. Slightly soluble in DMSO (2mg/ml) or 100% ethanol (1mg/ml), sparingly soluble in aqueous solutions. 
Shipping:Ambient Temperature
Long Term Storage:Ambient
Use/Stability:U73122 is only sparingly soluble in aqueous media. Therefore the compounds are delivered to cells either after dissolving in organic solvents or complexing with serum proteins. Serum albumin (1-10mg/ml).

Dissolve a weighed amount of U-73122 in methylene chloride or chloroform. Dispense in aliquots sufficient for one experiment into suitable vessels. Evaporate solvent with nitrogen.  

Stock solutions in DMSO or ethanol are stable for 2 months when stored at -20°C. Preferably dissolve just before use. Use caution in reusing stored DMSO solutions. Discard solutions that have turned to a pink color, which indicates a loss of inhibitor activity. Dried aliquots prepared from chloroform solutions are stable for up to 1 month when stored at -20°C.

Useful range of concentrations for U-73122 is 0.1 to 10μM.  The appropriate concentration will depend upon the cell type, cell density, medium concentration (the maleimide moiety of U-73122 may react with thiol containing compounds) and the particular cell parameter that is being measured.
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only
