Doxorubicin hydrochloride, 10 mg/ml in distilled water, sterile filtered


Chemical Properties

Fully miscible in water and soluble in 50 mM in DMSO, methanol and isotonic sodium chloride (>10 mg/ml). Insoluble in chloroform, and ether.


It acts as an antitumor antibiotic agent that inhibits DNA topoisomerase II and acts as a DNA intercalator that inhibits nucleic acid synthesis and induces apoptosis. It reduces intracellular tau levels. By intercalating within DNA, doxorubicin inhibits nucleic acid synthesis and induces apoptosis by inducing the accumulation of the p53 tumor suppressor protein. It is an is an inhibitor of AMPK, TERT and POLR. its fluorescent property has been exploited for the measurement of drug efflux pump activities as well as resolving the important question of intracellular localization of various multidrug resistance proteins and the role of subcellular organelles (Golgi and lysosome) in the sequestration of drugs and its implication in drug resistant phenotypes. It is applied as an antineoplastic.


Protect from heat. Keep the container tightly closed and place it in a cool, dry and well ventilated condition. Store in freezer at -20°C.
