  • Dose-dependent disruption in the distribution of α-tubulin following exposure to albendazole. Experimental treatments included vehicle (DMSO), 0.1 μM, 0.5 μM and 1 μM albendazole for 24 hours. α-tubulin was visualized using immunofluorescence (green) and nuclei were stained with DAPI (blue). 40x fluorescence microscopy was used to assess changes in cellular morphology and tubulin distribution.

Biological Activity

Description Albendazole (SKF-62979) is a member of the benzimidazole compounds used as a drug indicated for the treatment of a variety of worm infestations.
tubulin [1]
In vitro

Albendazole is reported to be teratogenic in rats, and is extensively metabolized to the sulfoxide derivative. Albendazole and its sulfoxide metabolite elicit an accumulation of cells in the mitotic phase of the cell cycle. [1]

In vivo Albendazole causes an induction of hepatic activities of CYP1A1-associated ethoxyresorufin O-deethylase (EROD) 65 fold, CYP1A2-associated methoxyresorufin O-demethylase (MROD) 6 fold, CYP2B1-associated penthoxyresorufin O-dealkylase (PROD) 4 fold, CYP2B2-associated benzyloxyresorufin O-dealkylase (BROD) 14 fold, as well as a partial reduction of CYP2E1-associated 4-nitrophenol hydroxylase (4-NPH) activity in the rat. [2] Albendazole is metabolized to its pharmacologically active sulfoxide metabolites by liver and lung microsomes from sheep and cattle, as well as by cattle intestinal microsomes. [3] Albendazole (ABZ) is a benzimidazole derivative with a broad spectrum of activity against human and animal helminthe parasites. [4] Albendazole and its metabolites are extensively distributed to the digestive tract, mainly into the abomasal fluid, after the i.v. and i.r. administrations. Albendazole and its active albendazole sulphoxide (ABZSO) metabolite are recovered in tapeworms collected from both i.v. and i.r. treated lambs. [5]

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 (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × 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 SDS / 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 SDS / 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.
