Biological Activity

Description Diethylstilbestrol (Stilbestrol) is a synthetic nonsteroidal estrogen, used to prevent miscarriage and other pregnancy complications.
Estrogen receptor [1]
In vitro

Diethylstilbestrol promotes coactivator release from orphan nuclear receptor ERR beta and inhibits its transcriptional activity in trophoblast stem cells. [1]

In vivo Diethylstilbestrol treated pregnant mice exhibits abnormal early placenta development associated with an overabundance of trophoblast giant cells and an absence of diploid trophoblast. [1] Diethylstilbestrol causes epigenetic methylation changes that result in persistent alterations in gene expression, leading to tumorigenesis in mouse uterus. Diethylstilbestrol induces c-fos exon-4 hypomethylation at postnatal day 17 in mice uterus, while elevating its mRNA level from postnatal day 5. Diethylstilbestrol exposure leads to hypomethylation in the exon-4 region of c-fos mRNA. [2] Diethylstilbestrol-treated rats exhibits more pronounced delay in maturational development of an adult pattern of immunoexpression of the three proteins compared with GnRHa-treated rats. Diethylstilbestrol results in similar reductions in both Sertoli cell numbers and suppression of testicular growth at 18 and 25 days, though by 35 days the suppression is more pronounced in DES-treated rats. [3] Diethylstilbestrol treatment appears to imprint an abnormal, site-specific demethylation of CpG/-464, which requires ovarian hormones to occur in adult mice. [4] Diethylstilbestrol (2.0 ng/g) per day increases adult prostate weight, whereas a 200 ng/g dose decreases adult prostate weight in male offspring mice. [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 MSDS / 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 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.
