Biological Activity

Description Ramipril is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor with IC50 of 5 nM.
Features A pro-drug converted to its active metabolite, ramiprilat, by liver esterase enzymes.
ACE [1]
5 nM
In vitro

Ramipril is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor with IC50 of 5 nM. [1] Ramipril enhances the activity of ACE-associated CK2 and the phosphorylation of ACE Ser1270 in cultured endothelial cells, but is unable to activate JNK or stimulate the nuclear accumulation of c-Jun in endothelial cells expressing a S1270A ACE mutant or in ACE-deficient cells. Prolonged Ramipril treatment increases ACE expression in primary cultures of human endothelial cells and in vivo (mouse lung), which can be prevented by pretreatment with the JNK inhibitor SP600125. [2] Ramipril displays little enhanced effect on the rate of in vitro endothelial apoptosis induced by the serum deprivation method. [3]

In vivo Chronic in vivo administration of Ramipril to rats at a dosage that has similar hypotensive effects in vitro HUVECs significantly reduces the rate of LPS-induced apoptosis compared to the other ACE inhibitors, which contrasts with the apoptosis effect in vitro. [3] Ramipril inhibits systolic blood pressure (SBP) with IC50 of 1.97 mg/kg in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). When in combination with AT1-receptor blockade by candesartan-cilexetil increases SBP reduction synergistically rather than additively. [4] Administration of Ramipril to spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) produces significant inhibition of aorta ACE and lung ACE with IC50 ~5 mg/kg, but shows little effect for brain ACE ex vivo. [5] Ramipril prevents beta cell dysfunction in osteoprotegerin treated mice through decreasing islet monocyte/macrophage infiltration, fibrosis and apoptosis involving decreasing RAS, growth factor genes and inflammatory molecules expressions.

Cell Research:[3]
- Collapse
  • Cell lines: Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs)
  • Concentrations: ~1 μM
  • Incubation Time: 24 hours
  • Method: The HUVECs are pretreated with the active metabolites of Ramipril for 24 hours. A serum deprivation method is used to induce apoptosis in the presence of Ramipril for an additional 24 hours. The rate of apoptosis is then determined using flow cytometry with two makers annexinV fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC+) and propidium iodide (PI).

Animal Research:[4]
- Collapse
  • Animal Models: Male spontaneously hypertensive rats
  • Dosages: 0.03-10 mg/kg
  • Administration: Gavage, every day

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)

*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 )

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.
