|Description||(+)-Catechin (Cianidanol, Catechinic acid, Catechuic acid) is an antioxidant flavonoid, occurring especially in woody plants as both (+)-catechin and (-)-epicatechin (cis) forms.|
The catechin flavonoid reduces proliferation and induces apoptosis of murine lymphoma cells LB02 through modulation of antiapoptotic proteins. Treatment of human prostate cancer cells with catechin induces apoptosis and results in effects on a variety of survival signals suggesting the potential of these compounds as chemopreventive agents for prostate cancer. Catechin is well known to inhibit cyclooxygenase activity with reported IC50 values ranging from 4O μM to 943 μM. It has also been reported to act as an inhibitor of COX-1 and COX-2 with IC50 of about 80 µM and 130 μM.
|In vivo||Dietary catechin significantly delayed tumor onset. Continued intake of catechin, a potential antioxidant, prevents memory regression and DNA oxidative damage in senescence-accelerated (SAMP10) mice. It does not prolong the lifetime of SAMP10 mice, but it does delay brain senescence. (+)-Catechin inhibits intestinal tumor formation and suppresses Focal adhesion kinase activation in the Min/+ Mouse.|

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.
