We conclude that rapamycin and dimethylsulfoxide are beneficial for improving nuclear morphology and cell proliferation of MADB fibroblasts.
Different concentrations of cryoprotectant dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) (0, 2.5, 5.0, 7.5, 10.0, 12.5 and 15%) was used extender C (pH 8.2) with dilution ratio 1:3, cooling rate 60[[degrees]C.sup.-min] and equilibration time 1 minute, with three replicates for each treatment.
[sup.1]H NMR and [sup.13]C NMR spectra of HPEs and HWPUs samples in deuterated dimethylsulfoxide (d-DMSO) were recorded on a Mercury VX-300 NMR spectrometer (Varian, America) at 300 MHz with tetramethylsilane (TMS) as an internal standard.
Use of cryoprotectants, such as ethylene glycol, glycerol, and dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), can prevent ice crystal formation, but high concentrations are theoretically toxic.
As for the reagents OxiRedTM Probe Preparation was prepared by dissolving the probe in 220l of dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO); XO Enzyme Mix was prepared by dissolving XO enzyme mixture in 220l deionised water; XO Substrate Mix was prepared by dissolving XO substrate mixture in 220l deionised water; and XO Positive Control was prepared by diluting XO positive control with 92l deionised water.
In vitro antimicrobial activity of dimethylsulfoxide. Appl Microbiol.
The gum obtained was dissolved in ethanol and dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) at the ratio of 1:1, then sterilized using a 0.2-[micro]m filter (Orange, Belgium) and kept at 4 [degrees]C until experiment (7).
However, these are soluble in dimethylformamide and dimethylsulfoxide. On the basis of elemental analysis (Table 1) they have been assigned the general formula Cu[([S.sub.2]CO[C.sub.2][H.sub.5]).sub.2] L [L = 2-, 3-, 4-methyl and 2-, 3-, 4-ethyl-pyridines].
The medium was then removed, and the cells were solubilized in 200 [micro]L of dimethylsulfoxide and analyzed at 490 nm.
The fluorescent dye, SYBR Green I (supplied as a 10,000x concentrate in dimethylsulfoxide, DMSO), was diluted with 10% ethanol to 1: 1,000 ratio as a working concentration.
This research article reports the experimental results of the density, viscosity, refractive index, and speed of sound analysis of binary mixtures of dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) + 1-phenylethanone (acetophenone) and + 1,4-dimethylbenzene (para-xylene) over the whole composition range at 313.15, 318.15, 323.15, and 328.15 K and at atmospheric pressure.
