|Solvent:||Chloroform, Dichloromethane, Ethyl Acetate, DMSO, Acetone, etc.|
|Storage:||Providing storage is as stated on the product vial and the vial is kept tightly sealed, the product can be stored for up to 24 months(2-8C).
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20C. Generally, these will be useable for up to two weeks. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.

|After receiving:||The packaging of the product may have turned upside down during transportation, resulting in the natural compounds adhering to the neck or cap of the vial. take the vial out of its packaging and gently shake to let the compounds fall to the bottom of the vial. for liquid products, centrifuge at 200-500 RPM to gather the liquid at the bottom of the vial. try to avoid loss or contamination during handling.|

|Differential effects of paclitaxel and derivatives on guinea pig isolated heart and papillary muscle.[Pubmed: 9454798]|
|Paclitaxel (Taxol) is an anticancer agent with clinical activity against various human cancer types. Paclitaxel blocks cell division by stabilizing microtubules, a mechanism that also underlies its major side effects (neutropenia and neurotoxicity). Paclitaxel can also alter cardiac function, and to elucidate the mechanism of this activity, we tested the mechanical and electrical effects of paclitaxel and a series of analogs (docetaxel, taxol B, taxol C and N-Methyltaxol C; 5-20 microM) on two different cardiac preparations, the isolated coronary perfused heart and the papillary muscle of the guinea pig. Paclitaxel and N-Methyltaxol C induced conduction arrhythmias and reduced coronary flow and left ventricular systolic pressure in the isolated heart, whereas the other taxol derivatives tested had no significant effect. Moreover, paclitaxel blocked the vasodilator effect of bradykinin in the isolated heart. Paclitaxel and N-Methyltaxol C produced a positive inotropic effect in papillary muscle, without alterations in the action potential. In the latter preparation, no significant variations were observed after treatment with the other taxol derivatives. The in vitro cardiodepressant and arrhythmogenic activity of paclitaxel is similar to that reported after its clinical administration and might be due to coronary vasoconstriction. The precise role of microtubules as modulators of intracellular calcium in cardiac and smooth muscle cells is at present unclear, because docetaxel and other taxol analogs, though they exhibited similar activity on tubulin, lacked cardiac effects.|

|N-methylation of the c3' amide of taxanes: synthesis of N-methyltaxol C and N-methylpaclitaxel.[Pubmed: 18498195 ]|
|A method has been developed for the methylation of the C3' amide of taxol C and paclitaxel. Taxol C and paclitaxel were sequentially silylated at the 2', 7, and 1-hydroxyl groups with tert-butyldimethylsilyl chloride, triethylsilyl chloride, and dimethylsilyl chloride, respectively. Subsequent reaction with potassium tert-butoxide and methyl iodide provided the corresponding N-methylated taxane derivatives. Removal of the silyl protecting groups furnished N-Methyltaxol C and N-methylpaclitaxel.|
