Biological Activity

Description Coumarin is a secondary phytochemical with hepatotoxic and carcinogenic properties.
In vitro

Coumarin is a fragrant organic chemical compound in the benzopyrone chemical class, which is a colorless crystalline substance in its standard state. Coumarin is a naturally occurring constituent of many plants and essential oils, including tonka beans, sweet clover, woodruff, oil of cassia, and lavender. Coumarin is a member of a class of compounds called benzopyrones. Coumarin compounds have been used to treat such diverse ailments as cancer, bums, brucellosis, and rheumatic disease, and they have been used as antispasmodics. Although coumarin itself has no anticoagulant properties, it is transformed into the natural anticoagulant dicoumarol by a number of species of fungi. This occurs as the result of the production of 4-hydroxycoumarin, then further into the actual anticoagulant dicoumarol, a fermentation product and mycotoxin. This substance is responsible for the bleeding disease known historically as "sweet clover disease" in cattle eating moldy sweet clover silage.[1]

Calculation results:

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.
