Biological Activity

Description Desmopressin is a synthetic octapeptide, and an analogue of human hormone arginine vasopressin with antidiuretic and coagulant activities. It is a selective agonist for the vasopressin V2 receptor (V2R).
V2R [1]
In vitro

Desmopressin (DDAVP) is a selective agonist for the vasopressin V2 receptor (V2R), which is coupled to cAMP-dependent signaling. DDAVP induces cAMP-dependent eNOS activation via Ser1177 phosphorylation[1]. DDAVP (at doses ranging from 100 ng/ml to 1 μg/ml) exerts a modest but significant antiproliferative effect on cultured CT-26 and Colo-205 cells[2].

In vivo In vivo, DDAVP (2 μg/kg) reduces accumulation of ascites and formation of intestinal tumor nodules in mice intraperitoneally inoculated with CT-26 cells. Perioperative administration of DDAVP significantly inhibits tumor progression in animals surgically implanted in the spleen with CT-26 cells, and causes some reduction in liver metastasis. DDAVP is able to inhibit lung colonization by blood-borne breast cancer cells in an experimental murine model. It dramatically reduces lymph node and lung metastasis in a model of mammary tumor manipulation and surgical excision in mice when administered perioperatively, and also exerts antitumor effects in combination with chemotherapy[2]. DDAVP increases the plasma levels of coagulation factor VIII, von Willebrand factor (VWF) and tissue-type plasminogen activator, and also enhances platelet adhesion to the vessel wall[1].


Cell Research:


- Collapse
  • Cell lines: HUVECs
  • Concentrations: 1 μM
  • Incubation Time: 25 min
  • Method:

    HUVECs are transduced with recombinant adenoviruses AdV2R.EGFP (AdV2R) or AdlacZ. 3 days later cells are incubated for 25 min with 1 μM DDAVP or 10 μM forskolin, both in presence of IBMX. Cell extracts are analyzed for eNOS Ser1177 phosphorylation and eNOS expression.

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 )

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.
