Biological descriptionPotent, selective histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor (Ki = 3.4 nM). Induces cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis in vitro. Anticancer and antifungal agent. Active in vivo and in vitro.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in ethanol to 10 mM and in DMSO 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.
Trichostatin A inhibits histone deacetylases in NIH/3T3 cells.
Cells from logarithmic were incubated overnight with different concentrations of Trichostatin A (ab120850). Cell proteins were resolved by SDS-PAGE and probed with anti-acetylated histone antibodies.
