Biological Activity

Description Borneol is a bicyclic monoterpenoid compound extracted from medicinal plants such as Blumea balsamifera, and Dryobalanops aromatica. It is a TRPM8 agonist that increases ocular surface wetness.
Targets
TRPM8 [2]
(cell-based assay)
65 μM(EC50)
In vitro

Borneol activates TRPM8 channel in a temperature- and dose-dependent manner. Borneol at micromolar concentrations do not affect the viability of human corneal epithelial cells. Borneol has been found to activate TRPV3 channel, which belongs to the heat-activated vanilloid family of TRP channels[1]. Borneol can potentiate (EC50 = 248 μM) or directly activate (> 1.5 mM) the GABAA receptor, activate the TRPV3 channel (EC50 = 3.45 ± 0.13 mM), and inhibit the TRPA1 channel (IC50 = 0.5 ± 0.3 or 0.20 ± 0.06 mM)[2].

In vivo Borneol is widely used in ophthalmic preparations and classic formulas of Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat various diseases including oculopathies, oral ulcers, sore throat, skin diseases and mild neurological disorders, and found to produce anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and analgesic effects. Borneol can increase tear secretion via activating the cold-sensing TRPM8 channel in the cornea[1]. borneol may facilitate the delivery of other effective components and enhance their effects in combinatorial herbal formulas. Thus, borneol is also orally administered as an adjuvant component for the treatment of a variety of diseases. topical borneol provides analgesic effects in three different mouse models of pain[2].

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:

[1]

  • Cell lines: HEK293 and HCE cells
  • Concentrations: --
  • Incubation Time: 24 h
  • Method:

    The viability of HEK293 and HCE cells is measured with WST-1 reagent. Briefly, cells are seeded in 96-well plates to reach a confluency of 50–60%. Borneol or menthol is added into the cell culture medium and incubated for 24 h. WST-1 (10 μl) is then added into each well and incubated for 2 h. Absorbance at 450 nm (A450) and 690 nm (A690) is measured in a plate reader. The subtracted value (A450-A690) is used to evaluate viability of the cells.

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.
