Purity & Quality Control
|Description||Gastrodin, an anti-inflammatory polyphenol extracted from Chinese natural herbal Gastrodia elata Blume., benefits neurodegenerative diseases.|
Gastrodin is the most important and effective ingredient extracted from Chinese natural herbal Gastrodia elata. Gastrodin (30, 40, and 60 mM) significantly attenuates levels of neurotoxic proinflammatory mediators and proinflammatory cytokines by inhibition of the NF-kappaB signaling pathway and phosphorylation of MAPKs in LPS-stimulated microglial cells.  However, It also upregulates the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3-K)/Akt signaling, resulting in the inhibitory effects NF-kappaB and MAPKs activation in H9c2 cardiomyocytes. 
|In vivo||Gastrodin at 5 mg/kg can improve cycloheximide- and apomorphine-induced amnesia, but not scopolamine-induced acquisition impairment in rats. Thus, GAS can facilitate memory consolidation and retrieval, but not acquisition.  LD50: Mice >1000mg/kg (i.v.) |
|In vitro||DMSO||50 mg/mL (174.65 mM)|
* 1 mg/ml means slightly soluble or insoluble.
* 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.
