Solubility overviewSoluble in DMSO to 50 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.

2D chemical structure image of ab141000, (E)-Capsaicin, Vanilloid receptor agonist
Capsaicin induces Ca2+ influx via activation of TRPV1 channels expressed in C6 cells. Cells were loaded with Fluo-3 AM (ab145254) and stimulated with Capsaicin (ab141000). Changes in intracellular Ca2+ were detected via changes in Fluo-3 emission following application. The left panel shows normalized fluorescence before and after application (at 20 seconds) of 0-10 µM Capsaicin (as indicated). The right panel shows normalized fluorescence plotted against Capsaicin concentrations.
To our knowledge, customised protocols are not required for this product. Please try the standard protocols listed below and let us know how you get on.
