Biological Activity

Description Nystatin, which belongs to the polyene group of antimycotics, is frequently used as a topical agent in the treatment of oro-pharyngeal candidosis.
In vitro

Nystatin results in a significant reduction in buccal epithelial cell adhesion of all six Candida species. [1] Nystatin is an antibiotic that increases the permeability of plasma membranes to small monovalent ions, including chloridion. Nystatin increases apical chloridion permeability to the point where transepithelial chloridion transport is limited by transport across the basolateral membrane of tracheal epithelial cells, which reflects primarily the activity of the cotransporter. Nystatin (400 units/ml) increases the basal level of transepithelial 36Cl flux approximately 1.5-fold and eliminates UTP stimulation of this flux. Nystatin treatment also abolishes UTP stimulation of saturable, basolateral [3H]bumetanide binding, a measure of functioning Na-K-Cl cotransporters in these cells; isoproterenol stimulation of binding is only mildly inhibited by nystatin treatment. [2] Nystatin significantly enhances endostatin uptake by endothelial cells through switching endostatin internalization predominantly to the clathrin-mediated pathway. Nystatin-enhanced internalization of endostatin also increases its inhibitory effects on endothelial cell tube formation and migration. [3]

In vivo Nystatin combined with endostatin selectively enhances endostatin uptake and biodistribution in tumor blood vessels and tumor tissues but not in normal tissues of tumor-bearing mice, ultimately resulting in elevated antiangiogenic and antitumor efficacies of endostatin in vivo. [3] Liposomal Nystatin, at doses as low as 2 mg/kg of body weight/day, protects neutropenic mice against Aspergillus-induced death in a statistically significant manner at the 50-day time point compared to either the no-treatment, the saline, or the empty-liposome group.

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 MSDS / 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 MSDS / 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.
