Chemical structure

p-Cresyl sulfate


Cell experiment [1]:

Cell lines

Human umbilical vein endothelial cells

Preparation method

Limited solubility. 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.

Reaction Conditions

24 h


Without and with HSA, 10 mug/mL, 25 mug/mL and 50 mug/mL p-cresol induce a decrease in endothelial cell proliferation by 21%, 38% and 54%, respectively. Without HSA, endothelial wound repair in monolayers treated with p-cresol is prominently lower than in cells treated with control medium. 10 mug/mL, 25 mug/mL and 50 mug/mL p-cresol reduce endothelial wound repair by 19%, 28% and 40%, respectively. With HSA, only 50 mug/mL p-cresol prominently blocks endothelial wound repair.

Dosage form

Intravenously injection of p-cresol (10 mg/kg) in rats with normal and decreased renal function

Preparation method

Dissolved in isotonic saline


P-cresol was injected in mice with normal and decreased renal function, and compared the results with those obtained for creatinine (60 mg/kg) under similar conditions. In rats with decreased renal function, p-cresol serum concentration displays a minimal decline, in contrast to rats with normal renal function. In rats with normal renal function, 21.0±10.0% of the injected p-cresol was excreted in urine. In rats with renal failure, the amount is 6.7±7.5%.

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.

The p-Cresol is a protein-bound uremic retention solute 1.

Free p-Cresol was found to be a cardiovascular risk factor in non-diabetic hemodialysis patients. In patients with diabetes, the level of both free p-cresol and total p-cresol were markedly higher. In patients treated by hemodialysis, the levels of these two forms of p-cresol were also significantly higher than that of patients treated by hemodiafiltration. The univariate cox proportional hazard analysis showed that the concentration of free p-cresol was obviously associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD). Quite many patients with high free p-cresol concentrations had new fatal or non-fatal cardiovascular events. Besides that, p-cresol was also found to inhibit cell proliferation. It inhibited the proliferation of cultured endothelial cells by 26% without affecting cell viability. Moreover, p-cresol treatment reduced endothelial wound repair by 19%, 28% and 40% at concentrations of 10, 25 and 50 μg/ml, respectively 1,2.
