|Description||S-(+)-Rolipram inhibits human monocyte cyclic AMP-specific PDE4 with IC50 of 0.75 μM, has anti-inflammatory and anti-depressant activity in the central nervous system, less potent than its R enantiomer.|
S-(+)-Rolipram suppresses LPS-induced TNFα expression from human monocyte through inhibiting PDE4 with IC50 about 2 μM.  1 μM S-(+)-Rolipram significantly antagonizes ovalbumin (OA) induced concentration-related contractions of tracheal rings which are isolated from OA-sensitized guinea pigs.  S-(+)-Rolipram inhibits PDE4 activity in a CHO-K1 cell line which stably expresses a recombinant full length human PDE-4a with IC50 at 450 nM.  Treatment of the human glioma cell line A-172 with Rolipram (including both R- and S-enantiomers of Rolipram) results in increased expression of the cell cycle inhibitors p21 [Cip1] and p27 [Kip1], and decreased activity of cdk2, a cyclindependent kinase essential for cell cycle progression. As a result, the proliferation of A-172 cells is inhibited, with induction of a G1 block. Eventually, Rolipram-treated A-172 cells undergo differentiation, which is followed by apoptotic cell death. 
|In vivo||In anesthetized, ventilated OA-sensitive guinea pigs, S-(+)-Rolipram reduces OA-induced bronchoconstriction with ID50 values of approximately 0.25 mg/kg i.v. Histamine- and leukotriene D4-induced bronchoconstriction are not affected by doses of S-(+)-Rolipram which abolishes the response to OA. Higher doses (3-10 mg/kg) reduce histamine-, but not the leukotriene D4-induced bronchoconstriction. In conscious OA-sensitive guinea pigs, intragastric pretreatment with S-(+)-Rolipram dose-dependently reduces both the OA-induced decreases in specific conductance as well as the corresponding pulmonary eosinophil influx as assessed by both bronchoalveolar lavage and histological evaluation. |
|In vitro||DMSO||55 mg/mL (199.75 mM)|
|Ethanol||55 mg/mL (199.75 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
30% PEG400+0.5% Tween80+5% propylene glycol
For best results, use promptly after mixing.
* 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.

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.
