Details

Product Information
Chemical Name: 4-amino-1-((2R,3R,4S,5R)-3,4-dihydroxy-5-(hydroxymethyl)tetrahydrofuran-2-yl)-1,3,5-triazin-2(1H)-one
Solubility: DMSO up to 100 mM
CAS#: 320-67-2
Formula: C8H12N4O5
Purity: ≥98%
Molecular Weight: 244.20
Storage: Powder: 4oC 1 year. DMSO: 4oC 3 month; -20oC 1 year.


Biological Activity:

5-Azacytidine is a classic DNA methyltransferase inhibitor. It incorporates into DNA forming covalent adducts with cellular DNMT, depleting enzyme activity. Azacitidine is widely used to demonstrate the correlation between loss of methylation in specific gene regions and activation of the associated genes. It can also improve the efficiency of reprogramming of stem cells, induce differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells into cardiomyocytes.


How to Use:

In vitro:  5-Azacytidine was used at 3-10 µM final concentration in various in vitro assays.

In vivo: 5-Azacytidine was intraperitoneally (IP) dosed to mice at 3 mg/kg once per day. It is dissolved in 0.85% NaCl solution immediately prior to use.
