|Description||Adapalene is a dual RAR and RXR agonist, used in the treatment of acne.|
Adapalene binds to retinoic acid receptors found predominantly in the terminal differentiation zone of epidermis and is more active than tretinoin in modulating cellular differentiation. Adapalene shows greatest affinity for the subtype PARγ, found predominantly in the epidermis. Adapalene is more active than indomethacin, betamethasone valerate, tretinoin, isotretinoin or etretinate in inhibiting lipoxygease activity, but it has little activity against cyclo-oxygenase.  Adapalene time- and dose-dependently suppresses DNA synthesis and induces apoptosis in Colon carcinoma cell lines CC-531, HT-29 and LOVO as well as human foreskin fibroblasts. Adapalene shows significantly more effective antiproliferative and proapoptotic effects than 9-cis-retinoic acid (CRA), showing remarkable effects even at 10 μM. Adapalene disrupts DeltaPsi(m) and induces caspase-3 activity in responsive tumor cells. 
|In vivo||Adapalene produces a dose-related reduction in the number of epidermal comedones and an increase in comedo profile and epidermal thickness in the rhino mice.  Adapalene results in a decreased expression of TLR-2 and IL-10 in explants of normal skin and explants of acne. Adapalene can modulate the epidermal immune system by increasing the CD1d expression and by decreasing the IL-10 expression by keratinocytes, and these modulations can increase the interactions between dendritic cells and T lymphocytes and could strengthen the antimicrobial activity against Propionibacterium acnes. |

* 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 (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.
