In vitro

Hederagenin could induce apoptosis of LoVo cells through the mitochondrial apoptotic pathway. Hederagenin could induce the up-regulation of Bax and down-regulation of Bcl-2, Bcl-xL and Survivin, the release of cytochrome c, followed by procaspase-9, procaspase-3 and proPARP cleavage[1]. Hederagenin exhibits antiinflammatory activities via decreasing production of pro-inflammatory mediators (NO, PGE2, TNF-α, IL-1β, and IL-6) through suppression of the pathways of NF-κB in LPS-induced RAW264.7 cells[2].

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:[1]
  • Cell lines: LoVo cells
  • Concentrations: 0.25, 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 and 4.0 μM
  • Incubation Time: 24 or 48 h
  • Method: LoVo cells are seeded into 96-well plates at a density of 10,000 cells/well. After being treated with 0.25, 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 and 4.0 μM hederagenin for 24 or 48 h, the medium is discarded and treated with 20 μl MTT (5 mg/ml). After incubation for 4 h at 37°C, the 100 μl DMSO is added to each well to dissolve the resultant formazan crystals. Absorbance is detected at 490 nm.

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.
