Biological Activity

Description Arctiin acts on an agonists of the adiponectin receptor 1 with anti-cancer effects.
adiponectin receptor 1 [3]
In vitro

Arctiin induces growth inhibition and dephosphorylates the tumor-suppressor retinoblastoma protein in human immortalized keratinocyte HaCaT cells. The growth inhibition caused by arctiin is associated with the downregulation of cyclin D1 protein expression. The arctiin-induced suppression of cyclin D1 protein expression occurs in various types of human tumor cells, including osteosarcoma, lung, colorectal, cervical and breast cancer, melanoma, transformed renal cells and prostate cancer[1].

In vivo Arctiin has anti-cancer properties in animal models. arctiin has a remarkable anti-tumor-promoting effect as seen in a two-stage carcinogenesis test of mouse skin tumors induced by 7,12-dimethylbenz[α]anthracene(DMBA) as an initiator and 12-Otetradecanoyl phorbol-13-acetate (TPA) as a promoter by topical and oral administration. It also has a protective effect on 2-amino-1-methyl-6- phenylimidazo[4,5-β]pyridine (PhIP)-induced carcinogenesis particularly in the mammary gland during the promotion period[1]. Arctiin is orally effective against either IFV-inoculated normal or 5-fluorouracil (5-FU)-treated mice[3].


Cell Research:[1]
- Collapse
  • Cell lines: The human immortalized keratinocyte cell line HaCaT
  • Concentrations: 10, 25, 100 or 250 μM
  • Incubation Time: 1, 2 and 3 days
  • Method: HaCaT cells are plated at 1×105 cells in 25-mm-diameter dishes. Twenty-four hours after plating, various concentrations of arctiin are added to the culture medium. From the first to the third day after plating, the number of viable cells is counted by the trypan blue dye exclusion test.

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)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*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 )

  • C1

* 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.
