Product Description

Biological Activity

Description Anastrozole is a third-generation nonsteroidal selective aromatase inhibitor.
Targets Aromatase [1]
IC50 15 nM
In vitro Anastrozole has high intrinsic potency in vitro and inhibits human placental aromatase with an IC50 of 15 nM. Anastrozole it is 200 times as potent as AG, twice as potent as 4-OHA and one third as potent as fadrozole. [1]. Anastrozole inhibits aromatase by binding competitively to the hem group of the CYP unit of the enzyme thereby reducing estrogen biosynthesis in the periphery and the breast. Anastrozole has little or no effect on other steroid hormones. [2]
In vivo Anastrozole (0.1 mg/kg) given orally to mature rats on Day 2 or 3 of the estrous cycle, blocked ovulation in mature females; in pubertal rats, the same dose given for 3 days completely blocks androstenedione-stimulated uterine development. These effects may be attributes to inhibition of the normal preovulatory rise in ovarian follicular estrogen synthesis in mature females and to inhibition of metabolism of the exogenous androstenedione by the immature ovary in prepubertal females. Twice-daily administration of >9.1 mg/kg of Anastrozole given orally to male pigtailed monkeys inhibits peripheral aromatase, thereby reducing circulating estradiol concentrations by 50% to 60%. [2]

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
