Catalog No.S3892 Synonyms: angelicin

For research use only.

Isopsoralen (Angelicin), also known as angelicin, is a constituent of roots and leaves of angelica with anti-inflammatory activity and regulates LPS-induced inflammation via inhibiting MAPK/NF-κB pathways. It also shows antiviral activity against gammaherpesviruses.

Biological Activity

Description Isopsoralen (Angelicin), also known as angelicin, is a constituent of roots and leaves of angelica with anti-inflammatory activity and regulates LPS-induced inflammation via inhibiting MAPK/NF-κB pathways. It also shows antiviral activity against gammaherpesviruses.
In vitro

Isopsoralen treatment stimulates the accumulation of cartilage nodules in a dose-dependent manner. Isopsoralen enhances the expressions of chondrogenic marker genes such as collagen II, collagen X, OCN, Smad4 and Sox9 in a time-dependent manner. Furthermore, isopsoralen induces the activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) and p38 MAP kinase, but not that of c-jun N-terminal kinase (JNK). Isopsoralen significantly enhances the protein expression of BMP-2 in a time-dependent manner and mediates a chondromodulating effect by BMP-2 or MAPK signaling pathways[2].

In vivo Isopsoralen has significant osteoprotective effect in female and male mice with sex hormone deprivation. After administration of isopsoralen for 8 weeks, Bone strength increases and trabecular bone microstructure improves[1]. After intravenous administration to wistar rats, the elimination half-lives of isopsoralen is 5.35 h. The area under the curves of the tissues for isopsoralen decrease in the following order: kidney > lung > liver > heart > spleen > brain. After oral administration to Wistar rats, the elimination half-lives of isopsoralen is 5.56 h, and its bioavailability is 70.35%[3].

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:

[2]

  • Cell lines: ATDC5 cells
  • Concentrations: 0-1 μM
  • Incubation Time: 24 h
  • Method:

    ATDC5 cells are seeded in 96-well plate at a density of 5×103 cells/well and incubated overnight in media supplemented with 10% FBS followed by treatment with various concentrations of isopsoralen. After 24h of incubation, cells are washed with phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) and then treated with media containing 100 μg/ml MTT for 2 h at 37℃. The cells are then washed with PBS, and dissolved in 200 μl of DMSO. The resulting solubilized purple formazan is quantified by measuring the absorbance at a wavelength of 540 nm using a spectrophotometer.

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.
