|Description||Cephalexin (Cefalexin) is an antibiotic that can treat a number of bacterial infections.|
Cephalexin uptake by human MATE1-expressing human embryonic kidney 293 cells exhibits saturable kinetics with K(m) = 5.9 mM and a bell-shaped pH profile with a maximum at pH 7.0.  Cephalexin results in overestimation of glucose concentration, but only in the samples that contain the highest antimicrobial concentration (2,400microg/mL) and only for the tablet.  Cephalexin increases the activity of superficial mucous cells and orifice mucous cells of gastric glands, and inhibits the activity of cervix mucous cells. 
|In vivo||Cephalexin causes a slight prolongation of 1-stage prothrombin time (PT) and activated partial thromboplastin time (PTT) and slight decrease in fibrinogen concentration in healthy dogs. Cephalexin causes a significant increase in 1-stage PT and activated PTT, amoxicillin causes a significant increase in activated PTT, and enrofloxacin causes a significant decrease in fibrinogen concentration.  Cephalexin results in high numbers of E. coli producing plasmid-mediated CMY-2 β-lactamase at the end of the treatment period in dogs. |

|% DMSO % % Tween 80 % ddH2O|
Working concentration： mg/ml；
Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: ： mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO (Master liquid concentration mg/mL，)
Method for preparing in vivo formulation：Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300， mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80，mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O，mix and clarify.
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 SDS / 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 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.
