Dexamethasone is an anti-inflammatory glucocorticoid. Inhibits the expression of the inducible but not the constitutive nitric oxide synthase in vascular endothelial cells (IC= 5 nM). Enhances active cation transport in aortic smooth muscle cells by stimulating the Na+-K+ pump.
It has anti-inflammatory and anti-rheumatic properties. Induces apoptosis in human thymocytes. In general, 500-1000 nM of dexamethasone is sufficient to induce apoptosis following a 6-hour incubation at 37°C.
Not for human therapeutic use or for medicinal purposes. For research applications only.
