|Description||Danshensu, a herbal preparation used in traditional Chinese medicine, possesses potential antitumor and anti‑angiogenesis effects.|
Danshensu reduces lipid peroxidation on mitochondrial membrane by scavenging free radicals, and inhibits permeability and transmission of mitochondrial membrane by reducing thiol oxidation. Danshensu markedly improves cell viability and decreased lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) release in H9c2 cardiomyocytes. Danshensu increases phosphorylation of Akt and extracellular signal-related kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) in H9c2 cells, and the protective effects of Danshensu are partially inhibited by phosphatidylinositol 3'-kinase (PI3K) specific inhibitor wortmannin or ERK specific inhibitor U0126. Danshensu could provide significant cardioprotection against MI/R injury, and the potential mechanisms might to suppression of cardiomyocytes apoptosis through activating the PI3K/Akt and ERK1/2 signaling pathways. Danshensu increases Bcl-2 expression and decreases Bax, active caspase-3 expression by activating Akt and ERK signaling pathways. Danshensu has been demonstrated to have biological activities in improving microcirculation, suppressing the formation of reactive oxygen species, inhibiting platelet adhesion and aggregation, protecting myocardium against ischemia, protecting endothelial cells against injury induced by inflammation.
|In vivo||Pretreatment with danshensu in ISO-administered rats shows a significant (P<0.001) decrease in ST-segment as compared to ISO-administered rats. Its pretreatment also shows significant (P<0.001) decrease in the levels of serum cTnI when compared to the ISO. Thus, danshensu exerts significant cardioprotective effects against ISO-induced myocardial infarction in rats. In the rat model of MI/R injury, Danshensu significantly reduces myocardium infarct size and the production of creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB), cardiac troponin (cTnI) in serum.|

* 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 (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × 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.
