|Description||Sodium ferulate (SF), the sodium salt of ferulic acid, is a drug used in traditional Chinese medicine for treatment of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases and to prevent thrombosis.|
SF is stable, water soluble. In vitro, SF (0.4 mg/mL) inhibits platelet aggregation induced by adenosine diphosphate (ADP) or collagen. At 1 mg/mL SF inhibits thrombin-induced platelet aggregation and release of [3H]5-HT from labelled platelets. The mechanism of SF action appears to be mediated by inhibition of cyclooxygenase and TXA2 synthase. In vitro SF inhibits lipid peroxide malondialdehyde (MDA) production from the platelets of rats, inhibits haemolysis induced by MDA and hydroxyl radical (OH·), and in erythrocyte membranes it inhibits lipid peroxidation induced by hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and superoxide anions (O2-). SF is a direct scavenger of oxygen free radicals. SF is found to act as a novel non-peptide endothelin antagonist and to prevent the binding of ET-1 to its receptor.
|In vivo||SF has antithrombotic, platelet aggregation inhibitory and antioxidant activities in animals and humans. In ethanol, carbon tetrachloride-, paracetamol-, or prednisolone-induced liver toxicity in mice, SF, 0.1 g/kg intragastrically, daily for 10 days inhibits the rise of liver lipid peroxides MDA content and alleviates liver lesions by stabilizing glutathione (GSH) and related enzymes levels. In glycerol-induced renal oxidative injury in mice, SF at 0.2 g/kg i.p., reverses the increase of renal MDA content and the decrease of GSH content, glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), glutathione S-transferase (GST), catalase (Cat), and SOD activities induced by glycerol injection, and improves renal histology. SF has a clear protective effect in experimental myocardial ischemia. In rabbits SF reduces the area of experimental myocardial infarction by 41% and decreases the oxygen consumption of guinea pig myocardial homogenates. SF has also a protective effect in myocardial ischemia reperfusion injury of rats. Furthermore, SF has an anti-atherogenetic effect in animal models. The antiarrhythmic effects of SF have been demonstrated in experimental animal models of arrhythmia, but not yet in clinical studies. The elimination half-life of SF is about 9.86 min. The acute oral LD50 of SF in mice is 3.2 g/kg.|

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.
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.
