LY333531 strikingly decreases the chance of HUVEC survival and the effect of LY333531 on apoptotic cell death in HUVEC significantly increases compared with the AGEs group. Blockade of PKC-beta up-regulates the expression of Bax and Bad proteins and down-regulates the expression of Bcl-2 protein. Moreover, LY333531 reduces the ratio of Bcl-2/Bax. LY333531 can further prompt AGEs-induced endothelial cells apoptosis. The increased expression of Bax, Bad and decreased expression of Bcl-2 and Bcl-2/Bax ratio are associated with the apoptotic process[3].

HUVECs were pre-treated with the indicated concentrations of LY333531 for 1 h prior to stimulation with VEGF (10 ng/ml, 5 min) or PMA (1 µmol/l, 20 min). Cell lysates were prepared and analysed by immunoblotting with the antibodies indicated.

In vivo LY333531 treatment (for a duration of 4 weeks) prevents excessive PKCb2 activation and attenuates cardiac diastolic dysfunction in rats with streptozotocin-induced diabetes. LY333531 suppresses the decreased expression of myocardial NO, Cav-3, phosphorylated (p)-Akt, and p-eNOS and also mitigates the augmentation of O2-, nitrotyrosine, Cav-1, and iNOS expression[2].


Cell Research:[3]
- Collapse
  • Cell lines: Human umbilical vein endothelial cell (HUVEC)
  • Concentrations: 200 nM
  • Incubation Time: 48 h
  • Method: HUVECs are seeded into 96-well plates in low glucose DMEM with 10% FBS for 12 h. Afterwards, HUVECs are starved for 12 h and incubated with BSA (200 μg/ml), AGEs (200 μg/ml) and LY333531 (200 nM)+AGEs (200 μg/ml) for 48 h. Then, the medium is replaced with 0.5 mg/ml MTT and at 37 ◦C in a 95% air/5% CO2 incubator for 4 h. Finally, the medium containing MTT is aspirated and replaced by dimethyl sulphoxide (DMSO). OD is measured with a Microplate spectrophotometer. AGEs:advanced glycation end products.

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.
