Biological Activity

Description Bismuth Subcitrate is an antibiotic used to treat stomach ulcers associated with Helicobacter pylori, a bacterial infection.
In vitro

Colloidal Bismuth Subcitrate is crystallized in dilute HCl at pH 3, and unique assembly of three basic bismuth citrate dimeric units ([Bi(cit)2Bi]2-) leads to the formation of two-dimensional sheets and 3D polymer, the solubility of Colloidal Bismuth Subcitrate in water is found to be dramatically affected by pH, from >70 mg/mL at pH 7 to only about 1 mg/mL at pH 3. [1] Bismuth Subcitrate is effective against the 12 C. pyloridis strains with MIC50 of 8 μg/mL. Bismuth Subcitrate combined with oxolinic acid exhibits synergistic activity against the 12 C. pyloridis strains. [2] Colloidal bismuth subcitrate (5 mg/mL) significantly increases the frequencies of sister-chromatid exchange (SCE) and micronucleus rate in peripheral lymphocytes compared with controls in human whole blood cultures. [3] Bismuth Subcitrate (100μM) inhibits Helicobacter pyloriF1-ATPase activity, and inhibition is prevented and reversed by the mercaptan glutathione, indicating that Bismuth Subcitrate interfere with sulfhydryl groups of the enzyme. [4] Colloidal Bismuth Subcitrate (150 mg/mL) inhibits the lipolytic activity of C. pylori filtrate, causing a 21% reduction in lipase activity and a 60% reduction in the activity of phospholipase A.

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.
