Triptolide (PG490) Chemical Structure

Molecular Weight(MW): 360.4

Triptolide is a diterpene triepoxide, immunosuppresive agent extracted from the Chinese herb Tripterygium wilfordii. It functions as a NF-κB inhibitor with dual actions by disruption of p65/CBP interaction and by reduction of p65 protein.

  • Spironolactone (sp.) and triptolide inhibit NER in myeloma cells. RPMI8226 cells were incubated with dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), spironolactone (10 μm) or triptolide (1 μm) for 6 h before NER evaluation. The figure represents the persistence of DNA-damage signal 150 min after exposure to UV (AFU: arbitrary fluorescent unit). Figure 4a shows representative merged pictures of DAPI and DDB2 proteo-probe signal (b).

  • Treatment with triptolide selectively induces apoptosis of cultured and primary CD19+ CLL cells. A. Percent apoptosis (Annexin V-FITC and PI staining) in Mec-1, Mec-2 and WAC3-CD5+ cells exposed to the indicated doses of triptolide for 48 hrs; bars indicate standard deviation. B. Percent apoptosis of CD19+ normal and primary CLL (both high and low risk) cells exposed to the indicated doses of triptolide for 48 hrs; bars indicate standard deviation. C. Percent of WaC3-CD5+ and Mec-1 cells in different phases of the cell cycle (G0/G1, S and G2/M) exposed to the indicated doses of triptolide for 24 hrs. D. Immunoblot analyses of HSF1, HSP70, cleaved caspase-3 and β-actin obtained from the cell lysates of CD19+ primary CLL cell samples treated with the indicated doses of triptolide for 24 hrs.

  • Triptolide decreases the levels of XRCC1, PARP1 and RAD51. (A) After treatment with 30 nM triptolide for 24 h, western blot assay shows triptolide decreases the levels of XRCC1, PARP1 and slightly influences the levels of RAD51. The assay was repeated in triplicate. (B) The quantification of western blot assay was analyzed. t-test, ***p < 0.001, **p < 0.01 vs the control group.

  • Triptolide inhibited the growth, viability and ACTH secretion of AtT20 cells. (A) AtT20 cells were treated with increasing doses of triptolide. Cell growth was determined by CCK8 assay after 96 h. The data were quantified as% of vehicle (0.01% DMSO). (B) AtT20 cells were treated with increasing doses of triptolide for 96 h. Cells were trypsinized and counted. The data were calculated as% of vehicle control. (C) AtT20 cells were treated with indicated doses of triptolide for 14–21 days. The colonies were visualized by crystal violet staining and quantified in 4 random fields each well. The average number of colonies were calculated and presented as% of vehicle control. (D) AtT20 cells were treated with 100 nM triptolide for 24 h, 48 h, 72 h and 96 h respectively. Cell growth was determined by CCK8 assay. The data were calculated as% of corresponding vehicle control. (E) Cells were treated with indicated doses of triptolide for 24 h. Effects of triptolide on Pomc mRNA expression were assessed by real-time PCR, using β-actin as a control. (F) Cells were treated with indicated doses of triptolide for 24 h. Equal amount of the cell culture supernatants were used for hormone measurement by competitive-ELISA, ACTH secreting levels were calculated according to the standard reference provided by the company. Data were normalized with the number of cells. All Data were presented as means ± SD of three independent experiments each performed with at least quadruplicates. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01. vs control.

Biological Activity

Description Triptolide is a diterpene triepoxide, immunosuppresive agent extracted from the Chinese herb Tripterygium wilfordii. It functions as a NF-κB inhibitor with dual actions by disruption of p65/CBP interaction and by reduction of p65 protein.
In vitro

Triptolide is a diterpene triepoxide with potent immunosuppressive and antiinflammatory properties. Triptolide is shown to inhibit the expression of IL-2 in activated T cells at the level of purine-box/nuclear factor and NF-κB mediated transcription activation. [1] Triptolide inhibits the proliferation and colony formation of tumor cells at extremely low concentrations (2–10 ng/mL). Triptolide has an inhibitory activity on breast, stomach and leukemia cell line HL-60 cells. Triptolide induces apoptosis in tumor cells by blocking NF-κB activation and sensitizing tumor cells for TNF-&alpha induced programmed cell death. [2]

22666381
In vivo Triptolide synergizes with cyclosporin A in promoting graft survival in animal models and in suppression of graft versus host disease in allogeneic bone marrow transplants. In addition, it induces apoptosis in tumor cells and potentiates tumor necrosis factor (TNF-α) induction of apoptosis in part through the suppression of c-IAP2 and c-IAP1 induction. [1] [3] Triptolide treatment for 2–3 weeks inhibits the growth of xenografts formed by four different tumor cell lines (B16 melanoma, MDA-435 breast cancer, TSU bladder cancer, and MGC80-3 gastric carcinoma), indicating that TPL has a broad spectrum of activity against tumors that contain both wild-type and mutant forms of p53. In addition, Triptolide inhibits experimental metastasis of B16F10 cells to the lungs and spleens of mice. [2] Triptolide has in vitro and in vivo activities against mouse models of polycystic kidney disease. [4] LD50: Mice 0.83mg/kg (i.v.). [5]
