|Description||Budesonide is a glucocorticoid steroid for the treatment of asthma, non-infectious rhinitis.|
Budesonide effectively inhibits production of eotaxin and RANTES protein although Budesonide inhibits the expression of chemokine mRNA to a variable extent in the human bronchial epithelial cell line BEAS-2B and in primary human bronchial epithelial cells. Budesonide inhibits both RANTES- and eotaxin promoter-driven reporter gene activity in the human bronchial epithelial cell line BEAS-2B and in primary human bronchial epithelial cells. Budesonide also selectively accelerates the decay of eotaxin and MCP-4 mRNA in the human bronchial epithelial cell line BEAS-2B and in primary human bronchial epithelial cells.  Budesonide time- and protein synthesis-dependently reduces VEGF secretion and VEGF mRNA expression in both cell types and these effects are inhibited by mifepristone (RU 486), a glucocorticoid receptor antagonist, suggesting that Budesonide reduces VEGF secretion and expression through its glucocorticoid receptor-mediated action.  Budesonide causes a dose-dependent, almost total, inhibition of swine dust-induced IL-6 and IL-8 release from epithelial cells and LPS-induced IL-6 and TNF-alpha from alveolar macrophages. 
|In vivo||Budesonide totally prevents the increased production of TNF-alpha, interleukin (IL)-1beta, IL-6, and monocyte chemoattractive protein (MCP)-1 after LPS challenge at both low (2.5 mg/mL/kg) and high (50 mg/mL/kg) concentrations in rats.  Budesonide exerts its effects of chemoprevention through growth arrest via Mad2/3 and through apoptosis via Bim/Blk and, by inference, caspase-8/9 in A/J mice. |

* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
