    In Vitro

    2-Deoxy-D-glucose (2-DG, 4, 8, or 16 mM) significantly reduces the level of ATP in MCF-7 cells in a dose- and time-dependent manner that paralleles the effects of 2-DG on cell growth. The levels of phosphorylated Akt are significantly decreased, whereas the levels of phosphorylated AMPK and Sirt-1 are significantly increased in MCF-7 cells exposed to 2-Deoxy-D-glucose at 4, 8, or 16 mM for 1, 3, or 5 days in a dose- and time-dependent manner[1]. 2-DG treatment increases the levels of pentose phosphate pathway (PPP) metabolites and augments the generation of NADPH by glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase. An increase in NADPH and upregulation of glutathione synthetase expression resultes in the increase in the reduced form of glutathione by 2-DG in NB4 cells[3].

    In Vivo

    2-Deoxy-D-glucose (0.03%, w/w) causes a 7% decrease in final weight that is statistically significant, and delayes the appearance of palpable mammary carcinomas[1]. 2-Deoxy-D-glucose (3 mmol/kg, i.v.) is decreased in a dose-dependent manner in rat muscle[2].

    Cell Assay

    The effect of 2-DG on cell growth is determined by evaluating the number of adherent cells. Briefly, MCF-7 cells are plated at 3×104 cells per well in flat-bottomed 96-well plates in 100 μL of culture medium under the culture conditions. After 24 hours, cells are fed with fresh medium including 2-Deoxy-D-glucose at doses of 0, 4, 8, or 16 mM. At days 1, 3, and 5 after 2-Deoxy-D-glucose exposure, cells are fixed with 1% glutaraldehyde, replaced with PBS, and stored at 4°C. At the end of an experiment, all of the plates are stained with 0.02% aqueous crystal violet for 30 minutes and rinsed with deionized water. After redissolving the bound crystal violet in 70% ethanol, the absorbance is determined at 590 nm using a SPECTRA MAX PLUS Microplate Spectrophotometer System.

    Animal Administration

    At 21 days of age, rats are injected with 50 mg 1-methyl-1-nitrosourea per kilogram of body weight (i.p.). Rats are housed two per cage in solid-bottomed polycarbonate cages equipped with a food cup. Six days following carcinogen injection, all rats are randomized into one of three groups, 30 rats per group, and are fed ad libitum AIN-93G diet containing 0.0%, 0.02%, or 0.03% (w/w) 2-Deoxy-D-glucose (2-DG) for 5 weeks. Animal rooms are maintained at 22±1°C with 50% relative humidity and a 12-hour light/12-hour dark cycle. Rats are weighed thrice per week and are palpated for detection of mammary tumors twice per week starting from 19 days postcarcinogen.

    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.
