Biological descriptionNon-specific cAMP and cGMP inhibitor
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in DMSO to 75 mM and in ethanol to 50 mM
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
1e7 3T3-L1 cells were treated for 15 minutes with 1 µM dexamethasone (ab120743) and 1 µg x mL-1 insulin (ab123768) with the addition of 50 µM forskolin (ab120058), 0.5 mM IBMX (ab120840) or 0.1 mM 8-CPT-cAMP (ab120424), extracted according to the protocol. Lysates were diluted 50-fold, and tested in duplicates (+/-SD).
