Biological Activity

Description Clodronate Disodium, a bisphosphonate, is a potent antiosteolytic agent which inhibits bone resorption.
In vitro

Clodronate significantly decreases total viability of cultures of J774 cells with EC50 of 300 μM, while liposome-encapsulated Clodronate decreases total viability of cultures of J774 cells with EC50 of 1 μM. Clodronate and liposome-encapsulated Clodronate is metabolized to a nonhydrolyzable adenosine triphosphate (ATP) analog, adenosine 5'-(beta, gamma-dichloromethylene) triphosphate, which can be detected in J774 cell extracts by using fast protein liquid chromatography. [1] Clodronate induces apoptosis in isolated osteoclasts. Clodronate, when administered in liposomes, also induces apoptosis in rat peritoneal macrophages in vitro and in liver macrophages of mice in vivo but not in murine macrophage-like RAW-264 cells. [2] Clodronate delivered into macrophages by liposome will kill these cells as a result of intracellular accumulation and irreversible metabolic damage. [3] Clodronate encapsulated in liposomes (clodrolip) efficiently depletes the phagocytic cells in the murine F9 teratocarcinoma and human A673 rhabdomyosarcoma mouse tumour models resulting in significant inhibition of tumour growth ranging from 75 to >92%, depending on therapy and schedule. [4] Clodronate, a bisphosphonate that lacks a nitrogen, does not inhibit protein isoprenylation but can be metabolized intracellularly to a beta-gamma-methylene (AppCp-type) analog of ATP, which is cytotoxic to macrophages in vitro. Clodronate is metabolited to AppCCl(2)p, and AppCCl(2)p inhibits mitochondrial oxygen consumption by a mechanism that involves competitive inhibition of the ADP/ATP translocase. [5]

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 SDS / 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 SDS / 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.
