Description

13-Methyltetradecanoic acid (13-MTD), a saturated branched-chain fatty acid with potent anticancer effects. 13-Methyltetradecanoic acid induces apoptosis in many types of human cancer cells[1][2].

In Vitro

13-Methyltetradecanoic acid (13-MTD; 0-140 μg/mL; 12-24 hours) inhibits cell viability and proliferation in human bladder cancer cells by inducing apoptosis[1].
13-Methyltetradecanoic acid (13-MTD; 70 μg/mL; 2-48 hours) treatments results in significant accumulation of cells with sub-G1 DNA content in a time-dependent manner, with the proportion of sub-G1 phase DNA content ranging from 9.25% to 85.3% over 2-48 hours[1].
13-Methyltetradecanoic acid (13-MTD; 70 μg/mL; 2-24 hours) down-regulates Bcl-2 and up-regulates Bax. This promotes mitochondrial dysfunction, leading to the release of cytochrome c from the mitochondria to the cytoplasm, as well as the proteolytic activation of caspases. 13-Methyltetradecanoic acid down-regulates AKT phosphorylation and activates phosphorylation of p38 and c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK)[1].

Cell Viability Assay[1]

Cell Line: Bladder cancer cell lines T24, 5637, and UM-UC-3
Concentration: 0 μg/mL, 35 μg/mL, 70 μg/mL, 105 μg/mL, and 140 μg/mL
Incubation Time: 12 hours, 24 hours
Result: Inhibition of cell viability in a dose- and time-dependent manner.

Cell Cycle Analysis[1]

Cell Line: Bladder cancer cell lines T24, 5637, and UM-UC-3
Concentration: 70 μg/mL
Incubation Time: 2 hours, 8 hours, 24 hours, or 48 hours
Result: Resulted in significant accumulation of cells with sub-G1 DNA content in a time-dependent manner.

Western Blot Analysis[1]

Cell Line: T24, 5637, and UM-UC-3 cells
Concentration: 70 μg/mL
Incubation Time: 2 hours, 8 hours, 24 hours
Result: Down-regulated Bcl-2 and up-regulated Bax, and down-regulated AKT phosphorylation and activated phosphorylation of p38 and c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK).
In Vivo

13-Methyltetradecanoic acid (13-MTD; 70 mg/kg/day; oral gavage; daily; for 30 days) significantly suppresses tumor growth in a xenograft model[2].

Animal Model: BALB/C nude mice injected with Jurkat lymphoma cells[2]
Dosage: 70 mg/kg/day
Administration: Oral gavage; daily; for 30 days
Result: Effectively inhibited the growth in vivo in a xenograft model.
