Biological Activity

Description Levothyroxine (L-T4, L-Thyroxine) is the major hormone derived from the thyroid gland. It is the agonist of Thyroid hormone receptor alpha and beta.
In vitro

Levothyroxine can upregulate the expression of P-gp mRNA and protein in LS180 cells and can produce the same effect in Caco-2 cells, which are relatively lacking in PXR. It doea not affect the expression of CYP3A4 in either cell line[1].

In vivo Levothyroxine is a synthetic T4 hormone that is biochemically and physiologically indistinguishable from the natural one, and it is administered when the body is deficient in the natural hormone. Its nain site of absorption is small intestine, more specifically through the duodenum, jejunum and ileum. Very little is absorbed in the stomach. The bioavailability is about 70-80 % in euthyroid person and may be slightly higher in hyperthyroid patients. The absorption of levothyroxine appears to be influenced by gastric pH. Tmax=2-3 hours and the half-time T1/2 is 6.2 and 7.5 days in euthyroid and hypothyroid patients, respectively[3]. T4 hormones is known to modulate the expression of ionic channels, pumps and regulatory contractile proteins. T4-treatment induces a dose-dependent increase in the duration of contractions. Abnormal uterine contractile pattern are induced by T4-treatment[2].

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.
