|Description||Borneol is a bicyclic monoterpenoid compound extracted from medicinal plants such as Blumea balsamifera, and Dryobalanops aromatica. It is a TRPM8 agonist that increases ocular surface wetness.|
Borneol activates TRPM8 channel in a temperature- and dose-dependent manner. Borneol at micromolar concentrations do not affect the viability of human corneal epithelial cells. Borneol has been found to activate TRPV3 channel, which belongs to the heat-activated vanilloid family of TRP channels. Borneol can potentiate (EC50 = 248 μM) or directly activate (> 1.5 mM) the GABAA receptor, activate the TRPV3 channel (EC50 = 3.45 ± 0.13 mM), and inhibit the TRPA1 channel (IC50 = 0.5 ± 0.3 or 0.20 ± 0.06 mM).
|In vivo||Borneol is widely used in ophthalmic preparations and classic formulas of Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat various diseases including oculopathies, oral ulcers, sore throat, skin diseases and mild neurological disorders, and found to produce anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and analgesic effects. Borneol can increase tear secretion via activating the cold-sensing TRPM8 channel in the cornea. borneol may facilitate the delivery of other effective components and enhance their effects in combinatorial herbal formulas. Thus, borneol is also orally administered as an adjuvant component for the treatment of a variety of diseases. topical borneol provides analgesic effects in three different mouse models of pain.|

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.
