In vitro

ICI-118551 inhibits cAMP accumulation by 50% (IC50 = 1.7 mM)[1]. Pharmacological experiments proves that the right shift of the norepinephrine dose-response curve by ICI 118551 is mediated via a beta(2)-adrenoceptor/G(i/o) protein-dependent pathway enhancing NO production in the endothelium; these results are corroborated in beta-adrenoceptor and endothelial NO synthase knockout mice where ICI 118551 has no effect. ICI 118551 increases vascular lumen diameter in lung sections and reduces pulmonary arterial pressure under normoxia and under hypoxia in the isolated perfused lung model[2]. Transgenic mice with high beta(2)AR number and increased G(i) levels have normal basal contractility but show a similar negative inotropic response to ICI 118,551. Overexpression of human beta(2)AR in rabbit myocytes using adenovirus potentiates the negative inotropic effect of ICI 118,551. In human, rabbit, and mouse myocytes, the negative inotropic effects are blocked after treatment of cells with pertussis toxin to inactivate G(i), and overexpression of G(i)alpha(2) induces the effect de novo in normal rat myocytes[5].

In vivo After 1 week of treatment, ICI 118,551 has no effect on the beta 1-receptor mediated shortening of electromechanical systole (QS2I), the rise in systolic pressure and rise in renin, whereas these responses are blocked by a dose factor of eight after propranolol. ICI 118,551 and propranolol equally block the beta 2-receptor mediated fall in diastolic pressure and the rise in noradrenaline. beta 2-selective blockade by ICI 118,551 lowers blood pressure[4].

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:


  • Cell lines: MEF cell line
  • Concentrations: 10μM
  • Incubation Time: 2-hours incubation at room-temperature
  • Method:

    Binding reactions are carried out by incubating 60 μg of membranes with 10 nM [3H]dihydroalprenolol hydrochloride and different concentrations of ICI 118,551. After a two hour incubation at room-temperature, the binding reactions are terminated by rapid filtration over glass fiber filters. Radioactivity in the filters is then quantified using a liquid scintillation counter. Non-specific binding is determined in the presence of 1 μM alprenolol. Binding data are analyzed with GraphPad Prism software.

Animal Research:


  • Animal Models: 8-9 weeks old male mice
  • Dosages: 1 or 2 mg/kg
  • Administration: i.p.

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.
