Hello!

For our 5Aza, we use the following as a stock:

100,000X Stock
-Dissolve 1 mg of 5-Aza-2dc in 4.380 mL of STO* media (w/o FBS)
-Aliquot in sterile microfuge tubes, 50Ál per tube
-Store in -80
no idea how stable, but at -80 I'd say at least a year

Then for the working solution we use:

Working Solution (1X=0.01ÁM)

-Make a 1:10 dilution (10,000 X) by taking 10Ál of 100,000X stock and adding 90Ál of STO media
-Make another 1:10 dilution (1,000X) by taking 10Ál of 10,000x stock and adding 90 Ál of STO media
-Make another 1:10 dilution (100 X) by taking 10Ál of 1,000x stock and adding 90 Ál of STO media
-Finally, make another 1:100 dilution by taking 10Ál of 100x stock and adding 990 Ál of STO media

*STO is what we use as a cell culture media.
-100mL Glasgows MEM
-1.2mL of 200mM L-Glutamine
-1.2mL of 100mM Sodium Pyruvate
-1.1mL DMEM

i don't think it matters. i dilute it in DMSO because my vehicle contains DMSO as well. also, i thought i saw on the sigma site that it's only stable for a month at -80.
