Directions For Use
Forskolin is soluble in DMSO and methanol. DMSO solutions can be stored at -20ºC in the dark for at least six months.
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.
