Anticancer agent. Inhibits depolymerization of microtubules, causing mitotic arrest in cancer cells, and apoptosis.
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.
Note: Some researchers have found solubility issues in PBS. The recommended procedure (from researcher feedback) for successful solubilisation is as follows: Solubilise 10 mg of ab120143 in 1.25 mL ethanol absolute, mix well, add 1.25mL Cremophor, homogenise. Store at -20°C and after 24 h, defreeze quickly and solubilise in PBS, no crystallisation observed. Please note, Abcam has not yet tested this method.
