Biological Activity

Description Pravastatin sodium is an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor against sterol synthesis with IC50 of 5.6 μM.
HMG-CoA reductase [1]
5.6 μM
In vitro

Pravastatin-Na at 10 μM inhibits the sterol synthesis at a level greater than 50% in PBMC. [1] Pravastatin produces relaxation of isolated aortic rings, with maximum vasorelaxations of 62.8% at 10 μM and latency of ~8 min. Pravastatin (< 10 μM) stimulates NOS activity and NO release within 10 min in cultured bovine aortic endothelial cells. L-arginine potentiates NO production in response to Pravastatin (< 10 μM) in cultured bovine aortic endothelial cells. [2] Pravastatin results in a dose-dependent inhibition of macrophage cholesterol synthesis in human monocyte derived macrophages(HMDM), mouse peritoneal macrophages (MPM) and a J-774 A.1 macrophagelike cell lines. Small concentrations of pravastatin (< 0.19 μg/mL) increases the cellular cholesterol esterification rate after incubation with LDL, but higher concentrations (< 100 μg/mL) results in an inhibition of the esterification. [3] Pravastatin (< 0.5 mM) decreases Rho/ROCK pathway activity in human colon and ileum explants, which leads to decreased CCN2 mRNA levels. Pravastatin (<1 mM) also induces CCN2 inhibition in primary human smooth muscle cells. Pravastatin (< 0.5 mM) decreases type I collagen and fibronectin mRNA levels in both human colon and ileum explants and primary human smooth muscle cells. [4]

In vivo Pravastatin (40 mg, single dose) causes a reduction in cholesterol synthesis in human monocyte derived macrophages by 62% in healthy subjects and 47% in hypercholesterolaemic patients. Pravastatin (40 mg/day, 8 weeks) results in a 55% inhibition of cholesterol synthesis and a 57% increase in LDL degradation in hypercholesterolaemic patients. [3] Pravastatin (30 mg/kg/d) results in decreased length of the dystrophic lesions by 34% and recovery of muscular structure in Male Wistar rats receiving irradiation, associated with decreased CCN2 level.

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.
