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]

Working concentration: mg/ml;

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.
