Hydrocortisone is a glucocorticoid hormone with anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects (Kang et al.; Langhoff & Ladefoged). It is also commonly used as a supplement for endothelial, epithelial, mesenchymal, or oligodendrocyte cell culture media, as it supports growth and differentiation. This product is supplied as the sodium salt of hydrocortisone 21-hemisuccinate, which is a more water-soluble form of hydrocortisone.
Hydrocortisone is required as a supplement in MyeloCult™ H5100 (Human; Catalog #05100) and MyeloCult™ M5300 (Mouse; Catalog #05300), for long-term cultures and the long-term culture-initiating cell (LTC-IC) assay. For complete instructions, refer to the Technical Manual for Human (Document #28412) or Mouse (Document #28417) LTC-IC Assays, available at www.stemcell.com or contact us to request a copy.
