|Description||Hydroquinone is a Melanin Synthesis Inhibitor. The physiologic effect of hydroquinone is by means of Depigmenting Activity. It also posesses antioxidant properties that can cause toxicity in several organs, notably the kidney.|
At 50 µM HQ(Hydroquinone), R-28 cells show a significant decrease in cell viability compared with the dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO)-treated controls. At the 100–500 µM concentrations, all three cell lines show significant cell death (P <0.001). In the ARPE-19, R-28, and HMVEC cultures, the caspase-3/7 activities are not increased at any of the HQ concentration. Neuroretinal R-28 cells are more sensitive to HQ than the ARPE-19 and HMVEC cultures.
|In vivo||In vivo exposure of rats to HQ results in changes of immune response mirrored by impairing allergic lung response to ovalbumin, an antigen unrelated to HQ. HQ exposure impairs the expression of CD45R and CD6 co-stimulatory molecules on activated spleen lymphocytes and diminishes the levels of OA(ovalbumin)-anaphylactic antibodies and the subsequent mast cell degranulation in sensitized rats challenged with OA.|

* 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.
