Biological Activity

Description Clotrimazole (BAY b 5097, FB 5097) alters the permeability of the fungal cell wall by inhibiting the biosynthesis of ergosterol, used in the treatment of fungal infections.
In vitro

Clotrimazole causes a sustained depletion of intracellular Ca2+ stores, which results in activation of PKR, phosphorylation of eIF2alpha, and thereby in inhibition of protein synthesis at the level of translation initiation. Clotrimazole preferentially decreases the expression of the growth promoting proteins cyclin A, E and D1, resulting in inhibition of cyclin-dependent kinase activity and blockage of cell cycle in G1.[1] Clotrimazole inhibits ADP-ribose-activated currents in HEK-293 cells expressing recombinant human TRPM2(hTRPM2). Clotrimazole (3 mM to 30 mM) produces an essentially complete inhibition of theTRPM2-mediated current. Clotrimazole antagonizes ADP-ribose-activated whole-cell and single-channel currents in the rat insulinoma cell-line CRI-G1. [2] Clotrimazole (2 mM) causes a sharp decline in parasitemia, complete inhibition of parasite replication, and destruction of parasites and host cells within a single intraerythrocytic asexual cycle (approximately 48 hours). Clotrimazole effectively and rapidly inhibits parasite growth in five different strains of P. falciparum, in vitro, irrespective of their Chloroquine sensitivity. [3]

In vivo Clotrimazole stimulates a subset of capsaicin-sensitive and mustard oil-sensitive trigeminal neurons, and evoked nocifensive behavior and thermal hypersensitivity with intraplantar injection in mice. Clotrimazole-induced pain behavior is suppressed by the TRPV1-antagonist BCTC [(N-(-4-tertiarybutylphenyl)-4-(3-cholorpyridin-2-yl)tetrahydropyrazine-1(2H)-carboxamide)] and absent in TRPV1-deficient mice. Clotrimazole inhibits the cold and menthol receptor TRPM8, and blocks menthol-induced responses in capsaicin- and mustard oil-insensitive trigeminal neurons. [4]

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:

Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and SDS / COA (available on product pages).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:

Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)

This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )

  • C1

* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and SDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:

Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
