Purity & Quality Control

Biological Activity

Description Fudosteine is a cysteine derivative and a MUC5AC mucin hypersecretion inhibitor, used as a muco-active agent with indications for chronic respiratory diseases.
In vitro

Fudosteine (FDS), a unique mucolytic antioxidant, shows a stronger scavenging effect of Peroxynitrite than N-acetyl-cysteine on DCDHF oxidation in vitro and in sputum macrophages, and also on Peroxynitrite-induced BSA nitration. Fudosteine (0.1 mM) reduces Peroxynitrite-enhanced interleukin (IL)-1beta-induced IL-8 release and restores corticosteroid sensitivity defected by Peroxynitrite more potently than those induced by H(2)O(2) in A549 airway epithelial cells. [1] Fudosteine significantly inhibits increases in GRO/CINC-1 at 10-100 mg/kg, and neutrophils and goblet cells at 30 and 100 mg/kg. Fudosteine inhibits goblet cell hyperplasia by inhibiting GRO/CINC-1 production and/or neutrophil migration. [2] Fudosteine treatment reduces the expression levels of p-p38 MAPK and p-ERK in vivo and of p-ERK in vitro. Fudosteine inhibits MUC5AC mucin hypersecretion by reducing MUC5AC gene expression and the effects of fudosteine are associated with the inhibition of extracellular signal-related kinase and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase in vivo and extracellular signal-related kinase in vitro. [3] Fudosteine significantly suppresses blood flow of tracheal microvasculature increased by SO(2) exposure. Fudosteine scavenges superoxide anion generated from rat neutrophils, and enzymatically generated from xanthine oxidase-acetaldehyde reaction. [4]

In vivo Fudosteine (500 mg/kg, p.o.) significantly increases the amount of dye excreted into the respiratory tract. Fudosteine increases chloride ion concentration in broncho-alveolar lavage of rats. [5]

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.
