Jurkat cells treated with Forskolin
By Tahmineh Safaie on 08/04/2020
Application: Species: Human

Jurkat cells were treated with different concentration of Forskolin for 15 minutes and the cAMP was measured (the cAMP levels are reversely correlated with Luminescent values.)

Forskolin increases intracellular cAMP levels
By Niroj Shrestha on 07/08/2019
Application: Species: Human

HEK293 cells transfected with cAMP FRET sensor, Epac-S(H187) were perfused in normal tyrode solution and excited alternately at 430 nm and fluorescence was captured at 470 and 535 nm. Forskolin (10 µM) was added at 1 min to activate adenylyl cyclase and increase intracellular cAMP, which is detected as an increase in 470/535 fluorescence ratio.


a potent adenylyl cyclase
By Anonymous on 02/21/2018
Application: Species: Rat

Forskolin activates adenylyl cyclase and increases intracellular cAMP. We used at 10 microM in cultured astrocytes to increase intracellular cAMP level.
