Storage: Store at or below -20 ºC. Solubility: Soluble in DMSO at 160 mg/mL; soluble in ethanol at 50 mg/mL; very poorly soluble in water; maximum solubility in plain water is estimated to be about 25-50 µM; buffers, serum, or other additives may increase or decrease the aqueous solubility. Disposal: A.

  • More than 500 labs worldwide have purchased Forskolin from LC Labs (either directly from us or from our many distributors, many of whom resell under their own labels).
  • Forskolin is a naturally occurring diterpene from the Indian plant, Coleus forskohlii, that works as an activator of adenylate cyclase resulting in an increase in the intracellular concentration of cAMP. Laurenza, A., et al. "Forskolin: a specific stimulator of adenylyl cyclase or a diterpene with multiple sites of action?" Trends Pharm. Sci. 10: 442-447 (1989). Barber, R. and Goka, T.J. "Adenylate cyclase activity as a function of forskolin concentration." J. Cyclic Nucleotide Protein Phosphor. Res. 10: 23-29 (1985).
  • Forskolin acts as a smooth muscle relaxant and vasodilator in a concentration-dependent manner that affects both cytoplasmic calcium levels and contractile element calcium sensitivity.

  • Forskolin is an inhibitor of mammalian glucose transporters and of a bacterial galactose-H+ transporter, GalP. Joost, H.G. and Steinfelder, H.J. "Forskolin inhibits insulin-stimulated glucose transport in rat adipose cells by a direct interaction with the glucose transporter." Mol. Pharmacol. 31: 279 (1987). Martin, G.E., et al.

  • Forskolin blocks PKC-activated ERK1 and ERK2 tyrosine phosphorylation and inhibits PKC-stimulated MAPK and Raf-1 activities in mouse bone-forming cells (MC3T3-E1 osteoblasts).
