Every lot is tried & tested in a relevant biological assay.
Form Lyophilized powder.
Effective concentration 2-200 µM.
Chemical name 5-[[4-[2-(Methyl-2-pyridinylamino)ethoxy]phenyl]methyl]-2,4-thiazolidinedione Rosiglitazone.
Molecular formula C18H19N3O3S.
CAS No.: 122320-73-4.
Activity Rosiglitazone blocks KV4.3 channels with an IC50 = 24.5 μM1, Kir6.1 channels with as IC50 = 2 μM2 and blocks TRPM3 channels with IC50 = 5-10 μM3. At high concentrations Rosiglitazone activates TRPC5 channels3.

Solubility 100 mM in DMSO . Centrifuge all product preparations before use (10000 x g for 1 min).
Storage of solutions Up to four weeks at 4°C or three months at -20°C.
- Alomone Labs Rosiglitazone inhibits KV4.2 channels expressed in Xenopus oocytesA. Time course of KV4.2 peak current amplitude, elicited by 100 ms voltage step from holding potential of -100mV to 0mV, delivered every 10 seconds. Application of 100 µM Rosiglitazone (#R-125) blocks the KV4.2 current in a reversible manner (indicated by the horizontal bar). B. Representative current traces before and during application of 100 µM Rosiglitazone as indicated.
References - Scientific background
Scientific background Rosiglitazone is known to activate Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPAR), ligand-activated transcription factors that belong to the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily1. Data shows that Rosiglitazone blocks KV4.3 channels with an IC50 = 24.5 μM2, Kir6.1 channels with as IC50 = 2 μM3 and blocks TRPM3 channels with IC50 = 5-10 μM4. At high concentrations Rosiglitazone activates TRPC5 channels4.
Target KV4, Kir6.1, TRPM3, TRPC5 channels
