|Description||Cyproterone acetate is an androgen receptor (AR) antagonist with IC50 of 7.1 nM, as well as a weak progesterone receptor agonist with weak pro-gestational and glucocorticoid activity.|
Cyproterone acetate clearly shows antagonistic properties, while being a partial agonist also, showing agonism for the AR, with EC50 of 4.0 μM, at relatively high concentrations.  In the presence of 10 nM Testosterone, low concentrations of Cyproterone acetate inhibits T-stimulated transcription of 3XHRE-LUC, but at higher concentrations, transcription is stimulated. 
|In vivo||LH levels in Cyproterone acetate-treated rats do not dip below pretreatment levels, although they does not increase as much in the rats treated with 3.2 mg Cyproterone acetate/kg/day as in those which received 0.2 mg Cyproterone acetate/kg/day.  Cyproterone acetate exhibits direct negative effect on reproductive organs weight and significant reducing effect on sperm count and Ca2+ contents. SOD and GST activities significantly decrease in addition to significant increase in NO, MDA contents reflecting the oxidative status of testis in Cyproterone acetate treated rats.  Cyproterone acetate treatment plus artificial long days in autumn has a negative effect on sperm motility and sperm morphology.  Androgen receptor occupation by Cyproterone acetate preferentially reduces the levels of spermatidal protamine in testis and spermatozoa involved in nuclear chromatin condensation. |

* 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.
