Biological Activity

Description Sodium Houttuyfonate, the active compound of the Houttuynia plant, is mainly used for treating purulent skin infections, respiratory tract infections, including pneumonia in elderly patients, and chronic bronchitis.
In vitro

Treatment with sodium houttuyfonate results in an increase in the expression of c-Fos protein in macrophages, while the phosphorylation level of extracellular signal-related kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) is not affected by the treatment[2].

In vivo Sodium houttuyfonate has been shown to protect against cationized bovine serum albumin (C-BSA)-induced glomerulonephritis in BALB/C mice through the suppression of the urine protein, morphological character and monocyte chemotactic protein 1 (MCP-1). In addition, sodium houttuyfonate treatment has been shown to induce a respiratory burst and to increase the concentration of free calcium in macrophages, as well as increase IL-2 within T-cells. Sodium houttuyfonate in the serum, stomach and intestine can be detected immediately by GC at 0.5 h. The concentration of sodium houttuyfonate in the stomach gradually increases from 0.5–2 h, but is drastically reduced at 4 h. Furthermore, the concentration in the serum and intestine at 1–4 h decreases in a time-dependent manner, indicating that sodium houttuyfonate can be quickly absorbed into the circulatory system and intestine and might be quickly distributed to other organs, such as trachea, lung, brain, heart and kidney[2].

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:[1]
  • Cell lines: synovial cells
  • Concentrations: 25, 50, 100, 200 μg/ml
  • Incubation Time: seven days
  • Method: The primary cells are equally divided into five groups as follows: the control group (group 1), cells treated with 25 μg/ml sodium houttuyfonate (group 2), 50 μg/ml sodium houttuyfonate (group 3), 100 μg/ml sodium houttuyfonate (group 4) and 200 μg/ml sodium houttuyfonate (group 5). Group 1 is administered an equivalent amount of normal saline (NS), whilst groups 2 to 5 are treated with corresponding amounts of sodium houttuyfonate. NS and sodium houttuyfonate are administered daily for 7 days by transfer pipette. Following the final administration, the five groups of synovial cells are measured using an MTT assay for analysis of the growth inhibitory rate of SH on synovial proliferation.

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.
