Quality Control & Documentation
Biological Activity

Hoechst 33342 trihydrochloride is a membrane permeant blue fluorescent DNA stain. Hoechst binds to the grooves in the DNA double strand, which tends to be A/T-rich DNA strand. Although it binds to all nucleic acids, the A/T-rich double strand DNA significantly enhances fluorescence intensity Therefore, Hoechst dye can be used for living cell labeling. The fluorescence intensity of Hoechst dye increases with the increase of pH of solution.

*The compound is unstable in solutions, freshly prepared is recommended

Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (PMID: 27057123)
Species Mouse Rat Rabbit Guinea pig Hamster Dog
Weight (kg) 0.02 0.15 1.8 0.4 0.08 10
Body Surface Area (m2) 0.007 0.025 0.15 0.05 0.02 0.5
Km factor 3 6 12 8 5 20
Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A Km

For example, to modify the dose of Compound A used for a mouse (20 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 20 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for Compound A of 10 mg/kg.
