|Description||Vitamin A palmitate is a more stable, synthetic version of the essential nutrient vitamin A joined to palmitic acid.|
The microencapsulation of vitamin A palmitate by gelatin-acacia complex is a promising method for converting an oily vitamin to solid powders for an aid to handling and ease of incorporation in preparations. 
|In vivo||Vitamin A Palmitate (80 mg/kg daily p.o.) or (800 mg/kg once a week p.o.) dose-dependently decreases the size of papillomas in mice, the daily administration induces a somewhat higher extent of regression than the weekly application if the total doses are compared. Water miscible solutions of Vitamin A Palmitate as well as of Vitamin A acid given by the oral route elicit the same effect on papillomas.  Vitamin A Palmitate (A single simultaneous injection of 150 g) enhances cell-mediated immunity to sheep red blood cells(SRBC) as early as 3 days following immunization, and the enhancement persists for at least 3 weeks. |
|In vitro||Ethanol||5 mg/mL (9.52 mM)|
|DMSO||3 mg/mL (5.71 mM)|
* 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.

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: ： mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO (Master liquid concentration mg/mL，)
Method for preparing in vivo formulation：Take DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300， mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80，mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O，mix and clarify.
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 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.
