Biological Activity

Description Patchouli alcohol (Patchoulol, Patchouli camphor), an ingredient in pogostemonis herba, has various pharmacological activities and acts as an inhibitor of asexual fungal propagation, inflammation, the influenza virus, and tumorigenesis.
In vitro

Patchouli alcohol inhibits the overexpression of iNOS and IL-6 in protein and mRNA levels in LPS-stimulated RAW264.7 and TNF-a stimulated HT-29 cells. Patchouli alcohol inhibits IkB-α degradation and p65 nuclear translocation, and subsequently suppresses transcriptional activity of NF-kB in LPS-stimulated RAW264.7 and TNF-α-stimulated HT-29 cells. In addition, Patchouli alcohol inhibits LPS- or TNF-α-stimulated ERK1/2 activation by decreasing phosphorylation of ERK1/2[1].

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:[1]
  • Cell lines: RAW264.7 and HT-29 cells
  • Concentrations: 50 and 75 μM
  • Incubation Time: 21 h
  • Method: RAW264.7 and HT-29 cells (2×105 cells/well) are seeded in 12-well plates and incubated overnight. Then, plasmid mixtures containing 0.5 μg of pNF-kB-Luc plasmid and 0.1 μg of pRL-null vector are transfected for 24 h (for RAW264.7) and 48 h (for HT-29). The empty pGL3-basic vector is used as a negative control. After transfection, cells are pre-treated with Patchouli alcohol, tolfenamic acid (TA), or sulindac sulfide (SS) for 6 h and then co-treated with LPS (for RAW264.7) or TNF-α (for HT-29) for an additional 15 h. The cells are harvested in 1×luciferase lysis buffer, and luciferase activity is measured and normalized to the pRL-null luciferase activity using a dual-luciferase assay kit.

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.
