CAS No. 130-86-9
Protopine (Corydinine, Fumarine, Biflorine, Macleyine), an alkaloid present in different plants, has been shown to exhibit a number of activities, such as inhibition of calcium influx through both voltage and receptor-operated channels and inhibition of rabbit blood platelet aggregation. It also possesses anti-cholinergic and anti-histaminic as well as anti-bacterial activities.

|Description||Protopine (Corydinine, Fumarine, Biflorine, Macleyine), an alkaloid present in different plants, has been shown to exhibit a number of activities, such as inhibition of calcium influx through both voltage and receptor-operated channels and inhibition of rabbit blood platelet aggregation. It also possesses anti-cholinergic and anti-histaminic as well as anti-bacterial activities.|
Protopine is found to be cytoprotective against oxidative stress-induced cell death in vitro. It inhibits several human CYP enzymes and is reported to be potent inhibitors of CYP2D6 and to suppress, albeit with less potency, the activities of CYP3A4, CYP1A2, and CYP2B6 as well. Protopine also inhibits CYP2C19. Protopine is a novel microtubule stabilizer with anticancer activity in HRPC cells through apoptotic pathway by modulating Cdk1 activity and Bcl-2 family of proteins. Protopine inhibits serotonin and noradrenaline transporter with IC50 values of 0.94 and 19.5 μM. The inhibiting effect of protopine on serotonin uptake (Ki = 0.92 μM) is stronger than that of protopine on NE uptake (Ki = 19.26 μM.
|In vivo||A pharmacokinetic study in rats after oral administration of a single dose of Rhizoma Corydalis Decumbentis extract, equivalent to 15.4 mg of protopine per kg of body weight, shows that the maximum plasma level of protopine reaches 348 ng/ml, i.e. 0.98 μM. In a similar study on rabbits, the maximum plasma concentration of protopine is 1.03 g/ml, i.e. 2.91 μM. Protopine may be a potential therapeuticagent of antidepressant which targeted on SERT and NET in mice models. It has an antidepressant-like effect on animal models.|

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.
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)
*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).
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 )
* 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.
