|Description||Isoprenaline is a non-selective beta-adrenergic receptor agonist, used for the treatment of bradycardia and heart block.|
Isoprenaline (300 nM, 3 min) increases particulate cGMP- and cilostamide-inhibited, low-Km cAMP phosphodiesterase (cAMP-PDE) activity by about 100% in intact rat fat cells.  Isoprenaline inhibits insulin-stimulated glucose transport activity in rat adipocytes. Isoprenaline, in the absence of adenosine, promotes a time-dependent (t1/2 approximately 2 min) decrease in the accessibility of insulin-stimulated cell surface GLUT4 of > 50%, which directly correlated with the observed inhibition of transport activity.  Isoprenaline (5 nM and 10 mM) increases cyclic AMP levels and this effect is potentiated by cilostamide (10 mM), by rolipram, a cyclic AMP-specific PDE (PDE 4) inhibitor (10 mM) and by cyclic GMP-elevating agents (50 nM ANF or 30 nM SNP plus 100 nM DMPPO).  Isoprenaline increases the transcriptional activity of Gi alpha-2 gene to 140% of the control value, whereas gene specific hybridization for Gs alpha remains unchanged.  Isoprenaline (20 nM) increases the amplitude of total iK and causes a negative shift of approximately 10 mV in the activation curve for iK, both in the absence and in the presence of 300 nM nisoldipine to block the L-type Ca2+ current. Isoprenaline (20 nM) increases the spontaneous pacemaker rate of sino-atrial node pacemaker cells by 16% in rabbit isolated pacemaker cells.

* 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.
Answers to questions you may have can be found in the inhibitor handling instructions. Topics include how to prepare stock solutions, how to store inhibitors, and issues that need special attention for cell-based assays and animal experiments.
