Biological Activity

Description Latanoprost is a prostaglandin F2alpha analogue and a prostanoid selective FP receptor agonist with an ocular hypertensive effect. Latanoprost increases uveoscleral outflow and thereby reduces intraocular pressure.
retinoid X receptor α [2]
PGF-prostanoid receptor [3]
In vitro

Latanoprost functioned as both an indirect activator of AMP-activated protein kinase and a selective retinoid X receptor α (RXRα) antagonist able to selectively antagonise the transcription of a RXRα/peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ heterodimer[2]. Latanoprost induced morphological abnormality and viability decline of HCS cells in vitro. It induces cell cycle arrest of HCS cells. Latanoprost induces abnormal changes of plasma membrane, DNA fragmentation and ultrastructural abnormality of HCS cells. Caspase activation in HCS cells is also activated by Latanoprost treatment. Latanoprost induces MTP disruption and quantitative changes of mitochondrion-associated pro-apoptotic regulators in HCS cells[1]. Latanoprost is effective in inhibiting adipogenesis, reducing lipogenesis, promoting fatty acid oxidation and enhancing GLUT4 translocation and glucose uptake both in adipocytes and myotubes[2].

In vivo Latanoprost, a clinical drug for treating primary open-angle glaucoma and intraocular hypertension, effectively ameliorates glucose and lipid disorders in two mouse models of type 2 diabetes. Its treatment improves glucose tolerance. Chronic administration of latanoprost decreases serum lipids and enhances insulin signalling in white adipose tissue and skeletal muscle. It effectually activates AMPK and regulates glucose and lipid metabolism-relevant genes in diabetic mice[2].


Cell Research:[1]
- Collapse
  • Cell lines: Human corneal stromal (HCS) cells
  • Concentrations: from 50 mg/l to 0.78125 mg/l
  • Incubation Time: 4, 8, 12 h
  • Method: HCS cells were inoculated into a 24-well culture plate (Nunc) and cultured in 10% FBS-DMEM/F12 medium at 37°C in a humidified 5% CO2 incubator. After the cells grew into logarithmic phase, the culture medium of each culture plate well was replaced entirely with the medium containing latanoprost at concentrations varying from 50 mg/l to 0.78125 mg/l, respectively. The cells were cultured under the same condition as described earlier, and their morphology and growth status were monitored every 4 h under an Eclipse TS100 inverted microscope.

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

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)

  • Mass
    Molecular Weight

*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).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

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 )

  • C1

* 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.
