Cabergoline prevents the oxidative stress-induced cell death of cultured cortical neurons via a D2 receptor-mediated mechanism. Cabergoline suppresses the activation of ERK signaling, which might have a role in the neuroprotection. Cabergoline significantly represses extracellular glutamate accumulation triggered by oxidative stress, and increases the expression of glutamate transporters including EAAC1, which is known to be involved in the clearance of extracellular glutamate[1].

In vivo Cabergoline has a long elimination half-life (63 to 109 h). An in vivo study of neuronal damage induced by intracerebroventricular (icv) injection of 6-OHDA, a neurotoxic compound that selectively damages dopaminergic neurons in male ICR mice, demonstrates that intraperitoneal (ip) administration of cabergoline for 7 days prevented nigrostriatal region dopaminergic neurons from cell death. Cabergoline also protects SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma from cell death by oxygen-glucose deprivation even when cabergoline is administered after the induction of cell death. Cabergoline increases hippocampal brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF, an important regulator in the synaptic plasticity) and exerts an antidepressant effect in rats[1].

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 SDS / 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 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.
