Biological Activity

Description Flurbiprofen is a member of the phenylalkanoic acid derivative family of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
In vitro

Flurbiprofen effectively inhibits the growth of various tumor cells in a dose-dependent manner and causes a noticeable change in the progression of cells through cell cycle stages in tumor cell lines derived from medulloblastoma and glioblastoma multiforme. Flurbiprofen reduces the number of cells in G1 and G2, and significantly increases their numbers in S phase, suggesting that, Flurbiprofen accelerates G1/S entry, and/or delays cell exit from S to G2/M stages. Flurbiprofen causes a minor change in the RNA level of different cyclins, there is a significant decrease in the level of cyclin B protein upon flurbiprofen treatment. [1]

In vivo Flurbiprofen affords significant neuroprotection from ischemic injury as evidenced by reduction in cerebral infarct volume and neurobehavioral deficit. Flurbiprofen significantly reduces an early calcium dependent rise in levels of nitrite and MDA in ischemic brain regions of rats. Flurbiprofen also reduces the proteolytic products (SBDPs) caused by ischemic activation of calcium dependent protease calpain. [2] Flurbiprofen (5 mg/kg and 10mg/kg) significantly attenuates brain ischemia/reperfusion injury in rats, as shown by a reduction in the infarct volume, neurological deficit scores and cell apoptosis. Flurbiprofen not only inhibits the expression of Bax protein and p-GSK-3β, but also increases the expression of Bcl-2 protein, the ratio of Bcl-2/Bax as well as the P-Akt level in rats. [3]

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.
