Acetylcholine chloride induces aortic ring relaxation.
By Chintan Koyani on 10/22/2018
Assay Type: In Vivo
Species: Mouse
Cell Line/Tissue: Aortic ring

C57BL6 mice were administered with LPS (5 mg/kg) alone or in combination with Empagliflozin (1 µM) for 16 h. Afterwards mice were sacrificed and aortic rings were isolated. Norepinephrine pre-contracted rings were incubated with indicated (in Image) concentrations of Acetylcholine chloride (ACh) to follow endothelial relaxation.

Quantification of acetylcholine in tissue by LC-MS/MS..
By Olga Malysheva on 01/04/2018
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Mouse

We used it as an analytical standard for quantification of acetylcholine in brain tissue.

Even 10mM solution does degrades in the -80C freezer. We keep our stock as 100mM and make new every 6 months.
