|Description||Tranilast is an antiallergic drug by inhibiting lipid mediator and cytokine release from inflammatory cells, used for the treatment of allergic disorders such as asthma, allergic rhinitis and atopic dermatitis.|
Tranilast is an anti-allergic drug inhibiting the release of substances such as histamine and prostaglandins from mast cells, which suppresses collagen synthesis of fibroblasts derived from keloid tissues. Tranilast (3-300 mM) suppresses the collagen synthesis of fibroblasts from keloid and hypertrophic scar tissue but not healthy skin fibroblasts. Tranilast (30-300 mM) inhibits the release of transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta 1 from keloid fibroblasts, which enhances the collagen synthesis of keloid fibroblasts.  Tranilast improves keloids and hypertrophic scars which originate from the abnormal proliferation and excessive collagen accumulation of fibroblasts. Tranilast inhibits the release of TGF-beta 1, IL-1 beta and PGE2 from the human monocytes-macrophages.  Tranilast inhibits the proliferation stimulated with fetal bovine serum (FBS), TGF-beta 1 and platelet-derived growth factor-BB (PDGF-BB) as well as PDGF-BB-induced migration. Tranilast exhibits inhibitory effects on spontaneous collagen synthesis and TGF-beta 1-induced collagen and glycosaminoglycan synthesis. 
|In vivo||Tranilast results in a 58% reduction in TGF-beta1-induced 3[H]-hydroxyproline incorporation in the diabetic heart of rats. Tranilast attenuates cardiac fibrosis by 37% in association with reduction in phospho-Smad2 in the diabetic heart of rats.  Tranilast treatment completely prevents the increase in chymaselike activity, reduces the chymase mRNA levels by 43%, and decreases the carotid intima/media ratio by 63% in the carotid artery of dogs. |

* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
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).
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 )
* 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.
