Biological Activity for Dexamethasone
Dexamethasone is a glucocorticoid; anti-inflammatory. Reduces levels of activated NF-κB in immature dendritic cells (DCs) and inhibits differentiation into mature DCs. Induces differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Also used in the generation of liver organoids. Induces autophagy in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) cell lines. Acts as viral transduction enhancer by promoting intracellular shuttling of HIV-1 pre-integration complex to the nucleus. Additionally Dexamethasone pretreatment in vivo suppresses adaptive immune response to recombinant adenoviral gene transfer vectors.
