Biological Activity

Description Ozagrel (OKY-046) is a selective thromboxane A(2) (TXA(2)) synthetase inhibitor with IC50 of 11 nM for rabbit platelet, used for the improvement of postoperative cerebrovascular contraction and accompanying cerebral ischaemia.
Targets
Thromboxane A2 synthetase [5]
11 nM
In vivo Ozagrel prevents oleic acid (OA)-induced thromboxane A(2) generation and subsequently increased total protein concentration and the numbers of macrophages and neutrophils in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid and increases monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 and interleukin-8 mRNA expression in the whole lung of guinea pigs. [1] Ozagrel (3 mg/kg) decreases both the area and volume of the cortical infarction after ischemia-reperfusion of the middle cerebral artery in rat. Ozagrel also has suppressive effects on the neurologic deficits in the microthrombosis rat model. [2] Ozagrel improves the reduced spontaneously locomotor activity and the obstruction of motor coordination in the conscious cerebral ischemia-reperfusion mouse model. Ozagrel suppresses the decrease in specific gravity of the brain tissue induced by the occlusion-reperfusion in the conscious cerebral ischemia-reperfusion SHR model, and recovers the postischemic decrease in cortical PO(2) after middle cerebral artery occlusion-reperfusion in cats. Ozagrel also increases the level of 6-keto-PGF(1alpha), a metabolite of prostaglandin I(2) (PGI(2)), in the brain tissue after cerebral ischemia-reperfusion, and the administration of PGI(2) improves the reduced spontaneous locomotor activity in the conscious cerebral ischemia-reperfusion mouse model. [3] Ozagrel administered intravenously 30 min before oleic acid injection prevents the decrease in Pao(2) and pulmonary vascular hyper-permeability in guinea-pigs. Ozagrel also prevents increases in lactate dehydrogenase activity, a measure of lung cell injury, TXB(2) and its weight ratio to 6-keto prostaglandin F(1alpha) in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid in guinea-pigs.

Working concentration: mg/ml;

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.
