Biological Activity

Description Arteether is a well-known antimalarial drug which acts by producing free radicals within the malarial parasite.
In vitro

Arteether is an oil-soluble derivative of artemisinin with an endoperoxide bridge that can induce apoptosis in tumor cells but not in the normal cells. Arteether and other derivatives show a dose-dependent manner to interact with immune cells[1].

In vivo Intratumoral injection of Arteether could have a significant reduction in tumor growth rate. Intra-tumoral injection of Arteether, as a loco-regional administration, may yield higher drug concentration in tumor and may reduce the risk of systemic adverse effects[1].

Protocol (from reference)

Animal Research:[1]
  • Animal Models: Balb/c mice
  • Dosages: 6 mg/kg/day
  • Administration: via intratumoral (IT) route
  • (Only for Reference)

Solubility (25°C)

In vitro

DMSO 62 mg/mL
(198.46 mM)
Ethanol ''-1 mg/mL

* 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.

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.
