Product Description

Molecular Weight 410.5 g/mol


Molecular Formula


CAS 66575-29-9
Solubility Soluble in DMSO at 10mg/ml and EtOH at 4mg/ml.


Forskolin, a naturally occurring diterpene from the Indian plant, Coleus forskohlii, activates adenylate cyclase, and thus increases the intracellular cAMP concentration (1). The second messenger cAMP activates cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA or cAPK) and controls many cellular mechanisms such as gene transcription, ion transport and protein phosphorylation (2).
