|Description||Psoralen is a naturally occurring furocoumarin that intercalates with DNA, inhibiting DNA synthesis and cell division.|
Psoralen inhibits the proliferation of MCF-7/ADR cells as shown by G0/G1 phase arrest rather than encouraging apoptosis. Psoralen reverses MDR(multidrug resistance) through inhibiting ATPase activity rather than reducing P-gp expression. Psoralen inhibits the migration abilities of MCF-7/ADR cells by repressing EMT possibly through inhibiting the activation of NF-κB. Psoralens are photoactive compounds that readily alkylate DNA when activated by longwave ultraviolet light. Proliferation has been significantly promoted in MCF-7/ADR cells treated with low concentration of psoralen (<10.75 µM) and inhibited with high concentration(>21.5 µM). Psoralen can inhibit metastasis of breast cancer. Psoralen mediates a variety of cell processes including cell death, proliferation, inflammation and migration.
|In vivo||Psoralen has been characterized as a tumor suppressor in various tumors. Psoralen ameliorates sex hormone deficiency-induced osteoporosis in female and male mice. It has antiosteoporosis effect in ovariectomy-induced osteoporotic rats via stimulating osteoblastic differentiation from bone mesenchymal stem cells.|

* 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.

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 MSDS / 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 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.
