|Description||Thiabendazole inhibits the mitochondrial helminth-specific enzyme, fumarate reductase, with anthelminthic property, used as an anthelmintic and fungicide agent. It is a potent inhibitor of cytochrome P450 1A2 (CYP1A2).|
Thiabendazole provokes a strong DNA-damaging activity in the human lymphoblastoid cell line that constitutively expresses human CYP1A1 cDNA, but not in the parental line, indicating that CYP1A1 is chiefly implicated in carbaryl and thiabendazole genotoxicity.  Thiabendazole provokes a dose- and time-dependent increase in CYP1A1 (EROD activity, protein and mRNA levels) in primary culture of rat hepatocytes.  Thiabendazole results in the induction of 7-ethoxyresorufin O-deethylase and 7-pentoxyresorufin O-depentylase activities, CYP1A1, CYP1A2, CYP2B1 and CYP2B1/2 mRNA levels and CYP1A2 and CYP2B1/2 apoprotein levels. Thiabendazole markedly induces GSTP1 mRNA levels, but has only a small effect on GSTT1 mRNA levels.  Thiabendazole is rapidly transported by passive diffusion through the human intestinal cells by comparison with the protein-bound residues which are not able to cross the intestinal barrier. Thiabendazole will be firstly metabolized to 5OH-TBZ and subsequently converted to a chemically reactive metabolic intermediate binding to proteins. 
|In vivo||Thiabendazole results in nephrosis or hydronephrosis and this organ toxicity may lead to the high dose-dependent mortality in treated mice. Thiabendazole results in hormone imbalance and this imbalance may play an important role in the changes of the reproductive or endocrine system in treated mice. |

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.
