In Vitro

Inulicin (1-O-Acetylbritannilactone) inhibits angiogenesis and lung cancer cell growth through regulating VEGF-Src-FAK signaling. Inulicin dose-dependently inhibits vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-induced proliferation, migration, and capillary structure formation of cultured human umbilical vascular endothelial cells (HUVECs). Treatment of A549 NSCLC cells with Inulicin results in cell growth inhibition and Src-FAK in-activation. The potential effect of Inulicin is tested ton Src and FAK phosphorylation in A549 lung cancer cells. Significant high levels of Src and FAK phosphorylations are noticed a in A549 cells, which are both inhibited by treatment of Inulicin (5 μM and 10 μM). Src and FAK are both important for cancer cell proliferation. Thus, A549 cell growth, tested by MTT assay and clonogenicity assay,is remarkably inhibited by corresponding Inulicin treatment. The anti-A549 cell growth activity of Inulicin is again dose-dependent[1]. Inulicin (1-O-Acetylbritannilactone) isolated from Inula britannica-F., inhibits inflammatory responses in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). Inulicin (5, 10, 20 μM) has several concentration dependent effects, including inhibition of lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced PGE2 production and COX-2 expression, and blockade of NF-κB activation and translocation. In addition, Inulicin directly inhibits the binding of active NF-κB to specific DNA cis-element[2].

In Vivo

Administration of a single dose of Inulicin (1-O-Acetylbritannilactone; 12 mg/kg/day) remarkably suppresses growth of A549 xenografts in nude mice. In vivo microvessels formation and Src activation are also significantly inhibited in Inulicin-treated xenograft tumors. To investigate the potential activity of Inulicin in vivo, a nude mice xenograft model is applied. A single dose of Inulicin (12 mg/kg/day, i.p.) dramatically inhibits the growth of A549 xenografts in nude mice. Further, the weights of Inulicin-treated tumors are remarkably lighter than that of vehicle-treated tumors. Notably, Inulicin administration does not affect mice body weights[1].

In Vivo:

Select the appropriate dissolution method based on your experimental animal and administration route.

For the following dissolution methods, please ensure to first prepare a clear stock solution using an In Vitro approach and then sequentially add co-solvents:
To ensure reliable experimental results, the clarified stock solution can be appropriately stored based on storage conditions. As for the working solution for in vivo experiments, it is recommended to prepare freshly and use it on the same day.
The percentages shown for the solvents indicate their volumetric ratio in the final prepared solution. If precipitation or phase separation occurs during preparation, heat and/or sonication can be used to aid dissolution.

  • Protocol 1

    Add each solvent one by one:  10% DMSO    40% PEG300    5% Tween-80    45% Saline

    Solubility: ≥ 2.5 mg/mL (8.11 mM); Clear solution

    This protocol yields a clear solution of ≥ 2.5 mg/mL (saturation unknown).

    Taking 1 mL working solution as an example, add 100 μL DMSO stock solution (25.0 mg/mL) to 400 μL PEG300, and mix evenly; then add 50 μL Tween-80 and mix evenly; then add 450 μL Saline to adjust the volume to 1 mL.

    Preparation of Saline: Dissolve 0.9 g sodium chloride in ddH₂O and dilute to 100 mL to obtain a clear Saline solution.
  • Protocol 2

    Add each solvent one by one:  10% DMSO    90% (20% SBE-β-CD in Saline)

    Solubility: ≥ 2.5 mg/mL (8.11 mM); Clear solution

    This protocol yields a clear solution of ≥ 2.5 mg/mL (saturation unknown).

    Taking 1 mL working solution as an example, add 100 μL DMSO stock solution (25.0 mg/mL) to 900 μL 20% SBE-β-CD in Saline, and mix evenly.

    Preparation of 20% SBE-β-CD in Saline (4°C, storage for one week): 2 g SBE-β-CD powder is dissolved in 10 mL Saline, completely dissolve until clear.

Cell Assay
[1]

HUVECs or A549 cells are plated in 60 mm plates (300 cells/plate). After overnight incubation, cells are treated with applied agents (e.g., Inulicin; 5 μM and 10 μM) for 24 h. Cells are then washed, and fresh media are added. After 10 days of incubation, surviving colonies are fixed, stained, and manually counted[1].

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

Animal Administration
[1]

Mice[1]
Male nude mice (4-6weeks old, BALB/c) are used. A549 cells (five million cells in 0.1 mL of culture medium) are subcutaneously injected at the right thigh of nude mice, and treatment is started when the tumors reach an average volume about 100 mm3. Animals are randomized into two groups with 10 mice per group: (a) Vehicle; (b) 12 mg/kg of Inulicin. Inulicin is injected intraperitoneally (i.p.) daily. The mice are examined daily for toxicity/mortality relevant to treatment, and the tumor is measured with a caliper every two days. The tumor volume (in mm3) is calculated, and the tumor growth curve is presented. At the end of experiments, xenograft tumors are isolated through surgery and weighted[1].

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
