Application

Cotinine has been used:
  • for oxygen-glucose deprivation (OGD) studies to model ischemic stroke
  • as a standard to determine serum cotinine measurements using liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS)
  • to evaluate the adverse developmental potential of cotinine
  • to assess cognitive behavior in mice
