|In vivo||Isotretinoin (500 ng/mL) and its main metabolite in the human, 4-oxo-isotretinoin, induce malformations similar to those seen in vivo.  Isotretinoin impairs explicit memory in Stage 2, but retention tests one month after Isotretinoin exposure ended, indicated recovery from this explicit memory impairment and evidence of enhanced implicit memory in the 10 mg and 15 mg ISO rats.  Isotretinoin slows the recovery of rod signaling after exposure to an intense bleaching light, and that rhodopsin regeneration is markedly slowed. Isotretinoin is also found to protect rat photoreceptors from light-induced damage.  Isotretinoin blocks the formation of A2E biochemically and the accumulation of lipofuscin pigments by electron microscopy. Isotretinoin also blocks the slower, age-dependent accumulation of lipofuscin in wild-type 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.
|Synonyms||13-cis retinoic acid|
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.
