β-Glycerophosphate (sodium salt hydrate) is a potent protein phosphatase inhibitor [1].

Protein phosphatase is an enzyme that removes a phosphate group from the phosphorylated amino acid residue of its target protein. Protein phosphorylation is one of the most common protein posttranslational modifications.

β-Glycerophosphate is a potent protein phosphatase inhibitor that acts as a phosphate group donor in bone cell mineralization studies [1][3]. In MC3T3-E1, ROS 17/2.8, and chick osteoblast-like cells, β-Glycerophosphate did not affect the rate of anaerobic glycolysis, but increased the medium Pi levels, suggesting that β-Glycerophosphate was hydrolyzed by bone cells. The local increase in medium Pi concentration promoted rapid mineral deposition [1]. In human bone marrow stromal cells (HBMSC) and human osteoblasts (HOB), BMP-2 resulted in mineralization of their matrix in the presence of beta-glycerophosphate and ascorbic acid [3]. β-Glycerophosphate (10 mM) also accelerated calcification of cultured vascular smooth muscle cells through an alkaline phosphatase-related mechanism [4].

Working concentration: mg/ml;

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
3. All of the above co-solvents are available for purchase on the GlpBio website.
