Biological Activity

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 induces autophagy in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) cell lines.

Compound Libraries

Dexamethasone is also offered as part of the Tocriscreen Plus, Tocriscreen Library of FDA-Approved Compounds and Tocriscreen Stem Cell Toolbox. Find out more about compound libraries available from Tocris.
