Biological Activity

Description Bexarotene is a retinoid specifically selective for retinoid X receptors, used as an oral antineoplastic agent in the treatment of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
RXR [1]
In vitro

Bexarotene treatment at 1 mM and 10 mM for 96 h increases the number of cells with sub-G1 populations and annexin V binding in a dose-dependent manner compared with vehicle controls (DMSO) in well-established CTCL cell lines (MJ, Hut78, and HH), respectively. Bexarotene treatment suppresses the expression of retinoid X receptor alpha and retinoic acid receptor alpha proteins in all three lines compared with untreated controls. Bexarotene treatment decreases the protein levels of survivin, activates caspase-3, and cleaved poly(ADP-Ribose) polymerase, but has no obvious effect on expression of Fas/Fas ligand and bcl-2 proteins in all three CTCL lines. [1] Bexarotene induces a loss of viability and more pronounced inhibition of clonogenic proliferation in HH and Hut-78 cells, whereas the MJ line exhibits resistance. Bexarotene upregulates and activates Bax in sensitive lines, although not enough to signal significant apoptosis. Bexarotene signals both G(1) and G(2)/M arrest by the modulation of critical checkpoint proteins. Bexarotene activates p53 by phosphorylation at Ser15, which influences the binding of p53 to promoters for cell cycle arrest, induces p73 upregulation, and, in concordance, also modulates some p53/p73 downstream target genes, such as p21, Bax, survivin and cdc2. [2]

In vivo Bexarotene significantly prevents ER-negative mammary tumorigenesis with less toxicity than naturally occurring retinoids in animal models. Bexarotene inhibits the development of preinvasive mammary lesions such as hyperplasias and carcinoma-in-situ in MMTV-erbB2 mice. [3]

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

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)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*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).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

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 )

  • C1

* 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.
