Biological Activity

Description Inulin(Inulin and sodium chloride), a starch found in the tubers and roots of many plants. Since it is hydrolyzable to fructose, it is classified as a fructosan.
In vitro

Inulin causes (20 g/d and 40 g/d) a significant increase in bifidobacterial counts in feces.[1] Inulin exerts a preferential stimulatory effect on numbers of the health-promoting genus Bifidobacterium, whilst maintaining populations of potential pathogens (Escherichia coli, Clostridium) at relatively low levels. [2] Inulin combined with Bifidobacterium results in more potent inhibition of aberrant crypt foci (ACF) than administration of the two separately, achieving 80% inhibition of small ACF. [3] Inulin is made by a set of linear chains of fructose molecules, with a degree of polymerization (DP) ranging between 3 and 65, it can be fractionated into a slowly fermentable long-chain fraction (DP ranging from 10 to 65, average 25) or in a rapidly fermentable fraction made of oligofructose (DP ranging from 3 to 8, average 4). [4] Long-chain inulin combined with short-chain oligofructose results in larger numbers of caecal, colonic and faecal bacteria of the Clostridium coccoides-Eubacterium rectale cluster than Control in rats, whereas OF alone does not affect this bacterial group in caecum, colon or faeces. [5]

In vivo Inulin results in an increase in caecal wt and beta-glucosidase activity and a decrease in caecal pH were observed in rats given inulin-containing diets (with or without B. longum). [3]

* 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.
