Product Description

Biological Activity

Description Linagliptin is a highly potent, selective DPP-4 inhibitor with IC50 of 1 nM.
Targets DPP-4 [1]
IC50 1 nM
In vitro Linagliptin shows a potent inhibition effect against DPP-4 in vitro and a low affinity for hERG channel and M1 receptor (IC50 295 nM). [1] Linagliptin acts as a competitive inhibitor with a Ki of 1 nM, and also shows 10,000-fold more selectivity for DPP-4 than DPP-8, DPP-9, amino-peptidases N and P, prolyloligopeptidase, trypsin, plasmin, and thrombin, and 90-fold more selectivity than fibroblast activation protein in vitro. [2]
In vivo In male Wistar rats, Beagle dogs, and Rhesus monkeys, Linagliptin shows a highly efficacious, long-lasting, and potent inhibitory activity against DPP-4 by more than 70% inhibition for all three species after oral administration of 1 mg/kg. Oral administration of Linagliptin to db/db mice 45 min before an oral glucose tolerance test reduces plasma glucose excursion in a dose-dependent manner from 0.1 mg/kg (15% inhibition) to 1 mg/kg (66% inhibition). [1] By inhibiting DPP-4 activity, Linagliptin reduces the expression of the proinflammatory markers cyclooxygenase-2 and macrophage inflammatory protein-2, and enhances the formation of myofibroblasts in healing wounds from ob/ob mice.

Protocol(Only for Reference)

Kinase Assay:


In Vitro DPP-4 Inhibition Assay For determination of the in vitro potency of inhibitors, an extract from the human colon carcinoma cell line Caco-2 is used as source of the DPP-4 enzyme. Caco-2 cells are grown to confluency in cell culture flasks in EMEM medium supplemented with non-essential amino acids and containing 10% heat-inactivated fetal calf serum. Cells are washed with PBS and 4 mL lysis buffer (10 mM Tris-HCl, 150 mM NaCl, 0.04 U/mL aprotinin, 0.5% Nonidet P40, pH 8.0) are added per flask. After 5 minute incubation at room temperature with gentle agitation, cells are centrifuged at 4 °C for 30 minutes and the supernatant is stored at -80°C. Prior to use, the extract is diluted 1000-fold with assay buffer (100 mM Tris-HCl, 100 mM NaCl, pH 7.8).

Animal Study:


Animal Models Male db/db mice
Formulation Linagliptin is dissolved in 0.1 N HCl and subsequently diluted with a 0.5% aqueous hydroxyethylcellulose solution (final HCl concentration 3 mM).
Dosages ≤1 mg/kg
Administration Administered via p.o.

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.

Rat dose (mg/kg) = mouse dose (22.4 mg/kg) ×  mouse Km(3)  = 11.2 mg/kg
