Introduction

Desmopressin is the first vasopressin analog with a very high and very specific antidiuretic effect, has been widely used for different therapeutic purposes and is believed to be partly responsible for the formation of memories learning and memory processes. Desmopressin increases urine concentration and decreases urine production. Desmopressin is used to prevent and control excessive thirst, urination, and dehydration.

Description

Desmopressin also called ADH (Anti-Diuretic Hormone) has a molecular formula of C46H64N14O12S2 , Mpr-Tyr-Phe-Gln-Asn-Cys-Pro-D-Arg-Gly-NH2 having a Mw of 1069.23 Dalton.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

The Desmopressin peptide was lyophilized with no additives.

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized DDAVP in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability

Lyophilized Desmopressin although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution DDAVP should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Purity

Greater than 98.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
