|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.|
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. 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.

* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
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)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
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 )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / 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.
