Biological Activity

Description Rifampin (NSC-113926, Rimactane, Rifampicin) is a DNA-dependent RNA polymerase inhibitor, used to treat a number of bacterial infections.
RNA polymerase [1]
In vitro

Rifampin inhibits IκBα degradation and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) phosphorylation. Rifampin is found to bind to human MD-2 in a Rifampin and MD-2 concentration-dependent manner. Rifampin inhibits NF-κB activation induced by LPS (20 ng/ml) in a dose-dependent manner, with an IC50 of 44.1 μM in Blue hTLR4 293 cells (A) and immunocompetent microgial BV-2 cell. Rifampin (50 μM) suppresses NF-κB activation at varying LPS doses, and the maximum NF-κB level induced by LPS in the presence of Rifampin (50 μM) is much lower than that in the absence of Rifampin. Rifampin inhibits NO production induced by LPS (200 ng/ml) in a dose-dependent manner in BV-2 cells, with an IC50 of 21.2 μM. Rifampin suppresses LPS induced TNF-α and IL-1β production in both microglia BV-2 and RAW 264.7 macrophage cells. Rifampin-inhibiting innate immune signaling is independent of the pregnane X receptor NR1I2. [1] Rifampin combined with polyester vascular prostheses (PVP) functionalised with cyclodextrin (PVP-CD) results in significant bacterial adhesion reduction and growth inhibition against Gram-positive bacteria. [2] Rifampin (50 μg/mL) significantly reduces the CFU counts of stationary-phase cultures and reduces the CFU counts of the log-phase culture to zero. Rifampin is particularly suitable since it is bactericidal and starts killing M. tuberculosis within an hour of exposure. [3]

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.
