|Description||Mestranol is the 3-methyl ether of ethinyl estradiol, which is a potent estrogen receptor agonist and used as oral contraceptives.|
Mestranol is extensively metabolized to hydroxylated products whose bio- logical activity is less well characterized. 
|In vivo||Mestranol (0.2 mg/kg) results in an increased percentage of liver occupied by AHF expressing glutathione S-transferase (PGST) in rats. Mestranol administration increases the focal hepatocyte labeling index compared with the control with a trend at the lower dose and a significant difference at the higher dose. Mestranol (0.02 mg/kg and 0.2 mg/kg diet) results in a decrease in the non-focal labeling index compared with that observed for the corresponding concentration of Mestranol alone. Mestranol significantly increases the non-focal hepatic labeling index in uninitiated rats compared with that observed in rats administered the basal diet only.  Mestranol (50 mg/100 g b.wt.) has a significant reduction in the apparent number of alpha-2-adrenoceptors in the frontal cortex and nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) of rat, while apparent numbers of both alpha-1 and alpha-2-adrenoceptors are depressed in the locus coeruleus. |

* 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.
