Other Product Data

Note: In aqueous solution cis-trans isomerization of cisplatin occurs. Isomerization is increased at elevated temperatures. Stability of cisplatin in aqueous solutions was enhanced by increasing the sodium chloride (NaCl) concentration to 0.9% and was adversely affected in alkaline solutions such as sodium bicarbonate solutions. Further, even though soluble in DMSO, we do not recommend to dissolve cisplatin in DMSO. DMSO inserts itself into the ligand. It is recommended to prepare all solutions fresh and protected from light.

  • Potent platinum-based antineoplastic agent [1, 10].
  • Anticancer compound [1]. Forms inter- and intrastrand DNA adducts/crosslinks, consequently blocking DNA replication and transcription and inducing cell death [2, 12, 13, 15].
  • Nephrotoxic when used in vivo [3].
  • Potent chemoimmunotherapeutic. Stimulates the immune responses by activating macrophages and other cells of the immune system [4, 6].
  • Apoptosis inducer via p53-dependent and -independent mechanisms [5, 7, 8].
  • Induces apoptosis through caspase-3 activation and XIAP expression inhibition [9, 14].
  • Targets other proteins and enzymes [10].
  • Non-competitive NHE-1 inhibitor, an archetypal, membrane-bound mechanosensitive sodium-hydrogen ion transporter [16].
