Biological Activity

Description Prochlorperazine dimaleate (Prochlorperazin, Compazine, Capazine, Stemetil) is a dopamine (D2) receptor antagonist.
D2 receptor [1]
In vitro

Prochlorperazine down-regulates cyclin E2 and reduces cell proliferation in MCF-7 cells that are resistant to tamoxifen. It has the potential to impact on estrogen receptor (ER) function and alter response to endocrine therapy[2].

In vivo Prochlorperazine is showed to be able to induce antinociception in mice. prochlorperazine-treated mice show a complete integrity of motor co-ordination on the rota-rod test, normal spontaneous motility, as well as exploratory behaviour as revealed by the hole-board test. The antinociceptive effect of prochlorperazine appears to be due to the antagonism of D2 receptors since the increase of the pain threshold induced by the investigated compound is prevented by pretreatment with the D2 agonist quinpirole[1].

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:[2]
  • Cell lines: BT474 cells
  • Concentrations: 5 μM
  • Incubation Time: 2 or 5 days
  • Method: Cells are treated 5 μM of prochlorperazine for 5 days and cell proliferation is measured by methylene blue staining or for 2 days and cyclin E2 mRNA levels are measured by qPCR.

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.
