|Description||(-)-Menthol is a levo isomer of menthol and used as a cooling agent that strongly activates TRPM8.|
(-)-Menthol induces cytotoxicity against murine leukemia WEHI-3 cells in vitro in a dosedependent manner. (-)-Menthol inhibits the growth of rat liver epithelial tumor cells and acts as a potent chemopreventive agent during DMBA initiation of rat mammary tumors. (-)-menthol inhibits N-acetyltransferase activity. It also is found to inhibit the DNA topoisomerase I, II alpha and beta and to promote NF-kappaB expression in human gastric cancer SNU-5 cells. Additionally, (-)-menthol induces human promyelocytic leukemia HL-60 cell death through the Ca2+ release from the endoplasmic reticulum.
|In vivo||The effects of (-)-menthol on WEHI-3 cells in vivo (BALB/c mice) were also examined, and it was observed that the Mac-3 and CD11b markers were decreased, indicating inhibition of differentiation of the precursor of macrophage and granulocyte. The weights of liver and spleen samples from mice treated with (-)-menthol were found to be decreased compared to untreated animals. (-)-Menthol has been shown to be toxic in animals, but in humans, it is considered to be safe, with a small cardio-accelerating effect. At high doses (-)-menthol may exert a depressant effect on the central nervous system in rodents. (-)-menthol statistically decreases the weights of the liver and spleen in the examined animals and also decreases the percentage of MAC-3 and CD11b cells in the blood..|

1.Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2.Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × 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.
