Cell experiment [1]:

Cell lines

human lung microvascular endothelial cells

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is >13.3mg/mL. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37℃ for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. Stock solution can be stored below -20℃ for several months.

Reacting condition

4 or 6 μM; 16 h


In human lung microvascular endothelial cells, Hydrocortisone (HC) induced a concentration-dependent but biologically minor barrier enhancing and protective effect. The combination of HC (4 μM) and ascorbic acid (VitC) (1000 μM) pre- or post-treatment significantly reversed the LPS-induced barrier dysfunction.

Animal experiment [2]:

Animal models

6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced Parkinson’s disease (PD) mouse models

Dosage form

0.4 mg/kg; intraperitoneal injection, 7 consecutive days


In Parkinson’s disease (PD) mouse models, Hydrocortisone caused approximate two-fold increase of parkin expression in selected brain subregions (striatum, ventral midbrain, and cerebellum), which was responsible for cell survival against oxidative stress.. Hydrocortisone also increased CREB expression. Hydrocortisone pretreatment markedly enhanced dopaminergic neuronal survival against 6-OHDA intoxication.

Other notes

Please test the solubility of all compounds indoor, and the actual solubility may slightly differ with the theoretical value. This is caused by an experimental system error and it is normal.

Hydrocortisone is a steroid hormone or glucocorticoid secreted by the adrenal cortex.

Hydrocortisone (50 nM) shows a dose-dependent down-regulation of GR transcript in hCMEC/D3 cells. Hydrocortisone supplementation of the serum-reduced cell differentiation medium leads to a significant increase in TER across the hCMEC/D3 monolayer[1]. Hydrocortisone-treated Dendritic cells (DCs) show a decreased expression of MHC II molecules, the costimulatory molecule CD86, and the DC-specific marker CD83, as well as a strongly reduced IL-12 secretion. Hydrocortisone-treated DCs inhibit production of IFN-γ but induce an increased release of IL-4 and no change in IL-5[2]. Hydrocortisone reduces postischemic oxidative stress, perfusion pressure, and transudate formation. Hydrocortisone inhibits postischemic shedding of syndecan-1, heparan sulfate, and hyaluronan as is release of histamine from resident mast cells[3].
