Biological descriptionCitrus flavonoid. Antioxidant, anti-inflammatory. Affects various signaling pathways in vitro and in vivo. Crosses the blood-brain barrier.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. It is important to note that this product is reported to be light sensitive. Store In the Dark. Store under desiccating conditions.
Solubility overviewSoluble in DMSO to 100 mM and in ethanol to 100 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.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab120958 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|Functional Studies||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
Serum starved HepG2 cells were incubated at 37°C for 30 minutes with vehicle control (0 μM) and different concentrations of (±)-naringenin (ab120958). Increased expression of p38 (phospho T180 + Y182) (ab45381) in HepG2 cells correlates with an increase in (±)-naringenin concentration, as described in literature.
Whole cell lysates were prepared with RIPA buffer (containing protease inhibitors and sodium orthovanadate), 10 μg of each were loaded on the gel and the WB was run under reducing conditions. After transfer the membrane was blocked for an hour using 5% BSA before being incubated with ab45381 at 1 µg /ml and ab8227 at 1/1000 dilution overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-mouse antibody conjugated to HRP (ab97040) at 1/10000 and visualised using ECL development solution.
