Catalog No.S1156

For research use only.

Capecitabine (RO 09-1978) is a tumor-selective fluoropyrimidine carbamate, which achieves higher intratumoral 5-FU level with lower toxicity than 5-FU. Capecitabine treatment of HCT-15 cells causes condensation of DNA and induces apoptosis.

Biological Activity

Description Capecitabine (RO 09-1978) is a tumor-selective fluoropyrimidine carbamate, which achieves higher intratumoral 5-FU level with lower toxicity than 5-FU. Capecitabine treatment of HCT-15 cells causes condensation of DNA and induces apoptosis.
Features A tumor-selective fluoropyrimidine carbamate.
Thymidine phosphorylase [1]
In vitro

Both LS174T WT and LS174T-c2 cells show significantly greater sensitivity to Capecitabine when cultivated in the same plates as HepG2 hepatoma with IC50 values of 890 and 630 μM in LS174T WT alone and cultivated with HepG2, respectively. In addition, for the LS174T-C2 subline, the IC50 falls from 330 ± 4 down to 89 ± 6 μm when cultivated in the same plates as hepatoma cells. Furthermore, Capecitabine induces apoptosis in a Fas-dependent manner, and shows a 7-fold higher cytotoxicity and markedly stronger apoptotic potential in thymidine phosphorylase (TP)-transfected LS174T-c2 cells.

In vivo In the human cancer xenograft models studied, Capecitabine is more effective in a wider dose range and has a broader spectrum of antitumor activity than 5-FU, UFT or its intermediate metabolite 5'-DFUR, which can be correlated with tumor dThdPase levels. [2] Capecitabine inhibits tumor growth and metastatic recurrence after resection of human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in highly metastatic nude mice model which is attributed to the high expression of platelet-derived endothelial cell growth factor in tumors.

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:[1]
  • Cell lines: HepG2, LS174T WT and LS174T-c2 cells
  • Concentrations: ~1 mM
  • Incubation Time: 72 hours
  • Method: HepG2 and either LS174T WT or LS174T-c2 cells are seeded, respectively, in the top and bottom chambers of 8-well strip membranes in 96-well plates. The exponentially growing cells are exposed to increasing concentrations of capecitabine. The medium is supplemented with 750 ng/mL ZB4 MoAB or 100 ng/mL BR17 MoAB when the latter are used in the experiments. After 72 hours of continuous exposure, LS174T viability is assessed using the classic colorimetric MTT test.
Animal Research:[2]
  • Animal Models: BALB/c nu/nu mice are inoculated s.c. with small pieces of CXF280 xenograft tissues
  • Dosages: ≤1.5 mM/kg/day
  • Administration: Administered via p.o.

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.
