Biological Activity

Description Alpinetin, a composition of Alpinia katsumadai Hayata, has been reported to have a number of biological properties, such as antibacterial, antitumor and other important therapeutic activities. Alpinetin is a flavonoid isolated from Alpinia katsumadai Hayata, activates activates PPAR-γ, with potent anti-inflammatory activity.
In vitro

Alpinetin markedly inhibits the LPS- induced TNF-α, IL-6 and IL-1β production both in vitro and vivo. Furthermore, alpinetin blocks the phosphorylation of IκBα protein, p65, p38 and extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) in LPS stimulated RAW 264.7 cells[1]. Alpinetin can suppress the proliferation and invasiveness of GSCs and induce apoptosis in GSCs[2].

In vivo Alpinetin attenuates lung histopathologic changes in mouse models[1].

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:[1]
  • Cell lines: Raw 264.7 cells
  • Concentrations: 0–300 μg/ml
  • Incubation Time: 1 h
  • Method: Cell viability is evaluated by MTT assay. Briefly, 100 μl cells are plated at a density of 4×105 cells/ml in 96-well plates in a 37 ℃, 5% CO2 incubator for 1 h. Then the cells are treated with 50 μl of alpinetin of different concentrations (0-300 μg/ml) for 1 h, followed by stimulation with 50 μl LPS (4 μg/ml). The total volume of each well is 200 μl, and the concentrations of Alpinetin and LPS are four times diluted finally. After 18 h of LPS stimulation, 20 μl MTT (5 mg/ml) is added to each well, and the cells are further incubated for an additional 4 h. The supernatant is removed and the formation of formazan is resolved with 150 μl/well of DMSO. The optical density is measured at 570 nm on a microplate reader.
Animal Research:[1]
  • Animal Models: Male BALB/c mice
  • Dosages: 50 mg/kg
  • Administration: i.p.

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.
