Storage & Solubility Information
Description Degarelix is a competitive and reversible gonadotropin-releasing hormone receptor (GnRHR) antagonist.
In vitro Degarelix directly acts on the pituitary receptors to luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH), preventing the effect of endogenous LHRH. The use of degarelix eliminates the undesirable surge of initial gonadotropin and testosterone levels produced by LHRH agonists. With the exception of PC-3 cells, Degarelix treatment reduces the cell viability of all prostate cell lines (WPE1-NA22, WPMY-1, BPH-1 cells, VCaP cells). GnRH antagonist degarelix has a direct effect on the growth of prostate cells through apoptosis.
In vivo In a single subcutaneous injection of 0.3 to 10 μg/kg in rats, degarelix produced a dose-dependent inhibition of the pituitary-gonad axis as revealed by the decrease in plasma luteinizing hormone (LH) and testosterone levels. The duration of LH inhibition increased with increasing dose: in rats, after subcutaneous injection of digarelix 12.5, 50 or 200 μg/kg, the significant inhibition of LH lasted 1, 2 and 7 days, respectively [ 3]. Degarelix is stable when incubated in microsomes and liver cells cryopreserved in animal liver tissue.

Molarity Calculator allows you to calculate the

  • Mass of a compound required to prepare a solution of known volume and concentration
  • Volume of solution required to dissolve a compound of known mass to a desired concentration
  • Concentration of a solution resulting from a known mass of compound in a specific volume
See Example

An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
Enter 197.13 into the Molecular Weight (MW) box
Enter 10 into the Concentration box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 10 into the Volume box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 19.713 mg appears in the Mass box

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution
The dilution calculator is a useful tool which allows you to calculate how to dilute a stock solution of known concentration. Enter C1, C2 & V2 to calculate V1.

See Example

An example of a dilution calculation using the Tocris dilution calculator
What volume of a given 10 mM stock solution is required to make 20ml of a 50 μM solution?
Using the equation C1V1 = C2V2, where C1=10 mM, C2=50 μM, V2=20 ml and V1 is the unknown:
Enter 10 into the Concentration (start) box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 50 into the Concentration (final) box and select the correct unit (micromolar)
Enter 20 into the Volume (final) box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 100 microliter (0.1 ml) appears in the Volume (start) box
