Biological Activity

Description Agomelatine (Valdoxan, Melitor, Thymanax,S20098) is classified as a norepinephrine-dopamine disinhibitor (NDDI) due to its antagonism of the 5-HT2C receptor.
5-HT2C [1]
In vitro

Agomelatine completely normalizes stress-affected cell survival and partly reverses reduced doublecortin expression in the hippocampus of rats subjected to chronic footshock stress. [1]

In vivo

Agomelatine is effective in reversing the transgenic mouse behavioural changes noted in the Porsolt forced swim test as well as in the elevated plus maze. Agomelatine also markedly accelerates readjustment of circadian cycles of temperature and activity following an induced phase shift. [2] Agomelatine enhances cell proliferation and neurogenesis in the ventral hippocampus (VH) of adult rats, a region pertinent to mood disorders. Agomelatine increases the ratio of mature vs immature neurons and enhances neurite outgrowth of granular cells in adult rats, suggesting an acceleration of maturation. Agomelatine also activates several cellular signals (extracellular signal-regulated kinase1/2, protein kinase B, and glycogen synthase kinase 3beta) known to be modulated by antidepressants and implicated in the control of proliferation/survival. [3] Agomelatine enhances the time devoted to active social interaction in unfamiliar pairs of rats exposed to a novel environment. [4] Agomelatine increases cell proliferation and neurogenesis in the ventral dentate gyrus of rats, a region notably implicated in response to emotion, which is consistent with the antidepressant-anxiolytic properties of Agomelatine. Agomelatine increases survival of newly formed neurons in the entire dentate gyrus of rats. [5]

Working concentration: mg/ml;

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.
