|Description||Azithromycin (CP-62993, XZ-450) is an antibiotic by inhibiting protein synthesis, used for the treatment of bacterial infections.|
Azithromycin reduces about 40% of IL-8 mRNA and protein expression in cystic fibrosis (CF) cells reaching the levels of non-CF cells. Azithromycin results in 50% and 70% reduction of NF-kappaB and AP-1 DNA binding, respectively, leading to levels of non-CF cells.  Azithromycin significantly enhances the intensity of a co-stimulatory molecule, CD80, on DCs but not CD86 and CD40 in dendritic cells (DCs). Azithromycin significantly increases the production of IL-10 and Clarithromycin (CAM) significantly inhibits the production of IL-6 by DCs. Azithromycin increases IL-10 and CAM decreases IL-2 productions significantly, when naive T cells derived from spleen are co-cultured with DCs treated in advance with LPS and these macrolides.  Azithromycin selectively inhibits fluid-phase endocytosis of horseradish peroxidase and lucifer yellow in J774 mouse macrophages. Azithromycin delays sequestration of receptor-bound transferrin and peroxidase-anti-peroxidase immune complexes into cell-surface endocytic pits and vesicles. Azithromycin down-regulates cell surface transferrin receptors, but not Fc gamma receptors, by causing a major delay in the accessibility of internalized transferrin receptors to the recycling route, without slowing down subsequent efflux, resulting in redistribution of the surface pool to an intracellular pool.  Azithromycin inserts into the DOPC lipid bilayer, so as to decrease its cohesion and to facilitate the merging of DPPC into the DOPC fluid matrix.

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 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.
