  • Combinations of EPZ-6438 with Prednisolone or Dexamethasone in DOHH2 EZH2 wild-type GCB lymphoma cell lines. All dose response plots were generated in Graphpad Prism and curves fitted to a four-parameter model with variable slope (2 biological replicates). Doses of EPZ-6438 ranged from 15.6-1000 nM, doses of Prednisolone ranged from 7.8–1000 nM, and doses of Dexamethasone ranged from
    0.8-100 nM. The potency of Prednisolone is increased with addition of EPZ-6438 in DOHH2 cells.

    Inhibition of proliferation of CMV-specifi CD8+ T cells by everolimus. Isolated CD8+ T cells were labeled with CFSE and stimulated with CMVpp65 peptide in a MLPC in the presence of increasing doses of everolimus. After 6 days T cells were stained for CD8 expression and specifi city for the HLA-A2 restricted epitope pp65 (495-503) . The numbers show percentages of (B) tetramer-positive cells of total CD8+ T cells using fl ow cytometry. One representative histogram/dot blot out of six experiments is shown.

Biological Activity

Description Prednisolone is a synthetic glucocorticoid with anti-inflammatory and immunomodulating properties.
Glucocorticoid receptor [1]
In vitro

Prednisolone (50 mg/kg, im) given 15 min before LPS-attenuated production of NO2- and NO3- by neutrophils and suppresses LPS-stimulated mRNA for NOS II in rat neutrophils. [1] Prednisolone reduces joint swelling through a mechanism associated with a reduction in IL-1beta and IL-6 protein and mRNA expression levels in SCW-induced arthritis rats. [2] Prednisolone's anti-inflammatory effects can be mediated by reducing cellular adhesion molecule (CAM) expression. Prednisolone (0.75 mg/kg) reduces macrophages (-59%, -57%), CD4(+) T-cells (-50%, -60%), CD8(+) T-cells (-58%, -48%), and eosinophils (-36%, -25%) in quadriceps and soleus muscles, respectively. Prednisolone-treated mice also exhibits decreased vascular P-selectin (-82%) and ICAM-1 (-52%) expression and fewer L-selectin (-79%) and ICAM-1 (-57%) expressing mononuclear cells in quadriceps. Prednisolone reduces sarcolemmal damage and degeneration as well in Dystrophin-deficient, mdx mice. [3]

In vivo Prednisolone (5 mg/kg) causes alterations in diaphragmatic contractile properties and histological changes without fiber atrophy in rats. Prednisolone results in an increased number of diaphragmatic bundles in rats. [4] Prednisolone induces a significant decline of PL-pO2, while CoBF, CMs, CAPs, and ABRs revealed no change in guinea pigs. [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.
