Purity & Quality Control

Biological Activity

Description Bisacodyl (INN) is a stimulant laxative drug that works directly on the colon to produce a bowel movement.
In vitro

Bisacodyl (10 μg/mL) increases mRNA expression level of TNF-α, COX2 and PGE2 in Raw264.7 cells. [1]

In vivo Bisacodyl (20 mg/kg) results in a decrease in AQP3 protein expression and increased mRNA expression level of TNF-α in the colon of rats. [1] Bisacodyl inhibits water absorption in rat jejunum, ileum, and colon, the degree of inhibition is linearly related to the logarithm of the bisacodyl concentration over the range of 0.05 mg to 2.0 mg per 100 mL. [2] Bisacodyl (10 mg/kg, intragastrically) induces a significant decrease in jejunal NOS activity in rats. Bisacodyl (10 mg/kg, intragastrically) increases the distance traveled by the marker in all time periods. [3] Bisacodyl (5.9 mg/kg) decreases significantly jejunal and colonic (Na + K) ATPase activity as compared to saline-treated rats. Bisacodyl (5.9 mg/kg) increases significantly jejunal and colonic PGE2 content and stimulates jejunal and colonic adenyl cyclase activity as compared to those in control rats without affecting cAMP content. [4] Bisacodyl (4.3 mg/kg) coupled with AOM increases the number of crypt per focus, but not the number of tumors in rats. Bisacodyl (43 mg/kg) significantly increases the number of crypt per focus and tumors in rats. [5]

* 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.

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.
