Biological Activity

Description Pranoprofen (Pyranoprofen) is a non-steroidal COX inhibitor, used as an anti-inflammatory drug in ophthalmology.
COX [1]
In vitro

Pranoprofen inhibits ER stress-induced glucose regulated protein 78 (GRP78) expression, an ER-localized molecular chaperon. Pranoprofen inhibits ER stress-induced CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein homologous protein (CHOP) expression, an apoptotic transcription factor. Pranoprofen alone induces eIF2alpha phosphorylation, which is further increased by ER stress. Pranoprofen inhibits ER stress-induced X-box-binding protein 1 (XBP-1) splicing in the primary cultured glial cells. [1] Pranoprofen (0.0625 to 1.0 g/L) has poignant cytotoxicity to human corneal endothelial (HCE) cells, and the extent of its cytotoxicity is dose- and time-dependent. Pranoprofen induces plasma membrane permeability elevation, DNA fragmentation, and apoptotic body formation, proving its apoptosis inducing effect on HCE cells. Pranoprofen above 0.0625 g/L has poignant cytotoxicity on HCE cells in vitro by inducing cell apoptosis, and should be carefully employed in eye clinic. [2]

In vivo Pranoprofen is orally administered, urinary and fecal excretions of the radioactivity within 3 days are 81.1% and 18.7% of the dose in mice, 51.5% and 39.4% in rats, 81.8% and 9.0% in guinea pigs, and 93.2% and 3.6% in rabbits, respectively. [3] Pranoprofen is excreted in the urine exclusively in the form of pranoprofen glucuronide in rabbit. Pranoprofen, especially the R(-)-isomer, is significantly distributed in the kidney of rabbit. [4] Pranoprofen has a preference for glucosidation rather than glucuronidation in mice at low doses in spite of having a higher capacity of glucuronidation. [5]

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 SDS / 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 SDS / 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.
