Biological Activity

Description (S)-10-Hydroxycamptothecin (10-HCPT) is a DNA topoisomerase I inhibitor with potent anti-tumor activity.
DNA topoisomerase I [1]
In vitro

10-Hydroxycamptothecin inhibits the growth of BT-20 and MDA-231 cell with IC50 of 34.3 nM and 7.27 nM, respectively, more potently than camptothecin (CPT) with IC50 of >500 nM. 10-Hydroxycamptothecin potently induces human topoisomerase I-mediated cleavable complex formation of pBR322 plasmid DNA with EC50 of 0.35 μM, displaying >50-fold potency than CPT with EC50 of 18.85 μM. [2] 10-Hydroxycamptothecin treatment induces dose-dependent growth inhibition of human microvascular endothelial cells (HMEC) with IC50 of 0.31 μM, and significantly inhibits the migration of HMEC with IC50 of 0.63 μM. Treatment of HMEC cells with 10-Hydroxycamptothecin also results in a dose-dependent inhibition of tube formation with IC50 of 0.96 μM. [3] 10-Hydroxycamptothecin (5-20 nM) significantly inhibits the proliferation of Colo 205 cells, arrests the cells in the G2 phase of the cell cycle and induces apoptosis through a caspase-3-dependent pathway. [4]

In vivo 10-Hydroxycamptothecin treatment inhibits angiogenesis in a concentration-dependent fashion in the CAM model, with 95% inhibition at dose of 25 nM, more potently than suramin which at 125 nM inhibits angiogenesis only by 60%. [3] Oral administration of 10-Hydroxycamptothecin at low doses of 2.5-7.5 mg/kg every 2 days leads to significant growth inhibition of Colo 205 xenografts in mice without acute toxicity. [4] LD50: Mice 104mg/kg (i.p.). [5]

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
