Curcumenol

Catalog No.S3874

For research use only.

Curcumenol, a sesquiterpene isolated from Curcuma zedoaria, is known to possess a variety of health and medicinal values which includes neuroprotection, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor and hepatoprotective activities. It inhibits NF-κB activation by suppressing the nuclear translocation of the NF-κB p65 subunit and blocking IκBα phosphorylation and degradation.

Biological Activity

Description Curcumenol, a sesquiterpene isolated from Curcuma zedoaria, is known to possess a variety of health and medicinal values which includes neuroprotection, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor and hepatoprotective activities. It inhibits NF-κB activation by suppressing the nuclear translocation of the NF-κB p65 subunit and blocking IκBα phosphorylation and degradation.
Targets
NF-κB [1]
()
CYP3A4 [2]
()
12.6 μM
In vitro

Curcumenol markedly decreases LPS-induced production of nitric oxide (NO), pro-inflammatory cytokines [(IL-6) and (TNF-α)] and pro-inflammatory proteins expression, iNOS and COX-2. Curcumenol has also been shown to exhibit hepatoprotective properties. Curcumenol can suppress the LPS-induced NF-κB activity by inhibiting the phosphorylation of Akt. Its treatment significantly inhibits LPS-induced phosphorylation of p38 MAPK but not JNK and ERK[1]. The activity of CYP3A4 is strongly inhibited by curcumenol with an IC50 value of 12.6 ± 1.3 μM. Kinetic analysis shows curcumenol competitively inhibits testosterone 6β-hydroxylation activity (CYP3A4) with Ki of 10.8 μM[2].

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:[1]
  • Cell lines: BV-2 cell line
  • Concentrations: 2.5–20 μM
  • Incubation Time: 2 h
  • Method: BV-2 cells are seeded into a sterile flat bottom 96-well plate. The cells are then allowed to adhere overnight. The cells are pretreated with various concentrations of curcumenol for 2 h followed by LPS exposure (0.4 μg/mL) for 12 h to 24 h.

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.
