Biological Activity

Description Bimatoprost is a prostaglandin analog used topically (as eye drops) to control the progression of glaucoma and in the management of ocular hypertension.
In vitro

Bimatoprost mildly stimulates the rate of aqueous humor flow during the day (13%) and at night (14%), its ocular hypotensive action is due primarily to a 26% reduction in the tonographic resistance to outflow. Bimatoprost enhances the pressure-sensitive outflow pathway. [1] Bimatoprost displaces [3H]prostaglandin F(2alpha) from FP receptors with K(i) of 6.31 μM. Bimatoprost rapidly mobilizes intracellular Ca(2+) via cloned human FP receptors expressed in human embryonic kidney cells and via native FP receptors in 3T3 mouse fibroblasts with EC(50) of 2.94 μM and 2.2 μM. [2] Bimatoprost up-regulates Cyr61 mRNA expression in the cat iris. Bimatoprost-induced up-regulation of Cyr61 mRNA expression is not because of the activation of the prostaglandin FP receptor but a different receptor. [3] Bimatoprost consistently evokes responses in different cells within the same tissue preparation, whereas prostaglandin F(2 alpha) and 17-phenyl prostaglandin F(2 alpha) elicites signaling responses in the same cells. Bimatoprost selectively stimulates intracellular calcium signaling in different cat iris sphincter cells. [4]

In vivo Bimatoprost is the ethyl amide derivative of 17-phenyl trinor PGF2α, a potent prostaglandin FP receptor agonist. Bimatoprost elicits an immediate, robust spike in [Ca2+] that rapidly decayes back to baseline levels. Bimatoprost possess direct agonist activities at the rat, mouse, and human FP prostanoid receptor. [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.
