Gallery: Forskolin #3828
Forskolin is soluble in DMSO and methanol. DMSO solutions can be stored at -20ºC in the dark for at least six months.Storage: Store lyophilized or in solution at -20°C. In lyophilized form, the chemical is stable for 24 months. Once in solution, use within 3 months to prevent loss of potency.
Forskolin, a naturally occurring diterpene from the Indian plant, Coleus forskohlii, activates adenylate cyclase, and thus increases the intracellular cAMP concentration (1). The second messenger cAMP activates cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA or cAPK) and controls many cellular mechanisms such as gene transcription, ion transport and protein phosphorylation (2).
Purity is greater than 99% as determined by HPLC and TLC.
