    Description

    Asiaticoside, a trisaccaride triterpene from Centella asiatica, suppresses TGF-β/Smad signaling through inducing Smad7 and inhibiting TGF-βRI and TGF-βRII in keloid fibroblasts; Asiaticoside shows antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-ulcer properties.

    IC50 & Target

    TGF-beta/Smad[1]

    In Vitro

    Asiaticoside (0, 100, 250, and 500 mg/L) dose-dependently inhibits keloid fibroblasts proliferation. Asiaticoside (100, 250, and 500 mg/L) decreases the expression of collagen protein and mRNA, reduces the expression of TGF-bRI, TGF-bRII protein, and mRNA, increases the expression of Smad7, but does not affect Smad2, Smad3, Smad4, phosphorylated Smad2, and phosphorylated Smad3 in keloid fibroblasts[1]. Asiaticoside (12.5 and 50, and 25 and 50 μg/mL) prevents endothelial cells from hypoxia-induced inhibition of cell viability and NO production. Asiaticoside (50 μg/mL) also protects endothelial cells from hypoxia-induced apoptosis and upregulates and phosphorylation of AKT/eNOS in hypoxia-exposed HPAECs[2].

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

    In Vivo

    Asiaticoside (50 mg/kg daily) blocks the development of hypoxic pulmonary hypertension (PH), cardiovascular remodeling and endothelial cell injury in rats with pulmonary hypertension[2]. Asiaticoside (5, 15 or 45 mg/kg, p.o.) improves the learning and memory deficit, protects hippocampi against the impairment, decreases Aβ deposits in the hippocampus, and ameliorates impaired subcellular structure in rats treated with Aβ oligomers[3].

    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 (2.61 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.

    Cell Assay
    [1]

    Cells are seeded at a density of 2-9 × 104 cells/mL into 24-well plates for cell viability, 60-mm plates for RNA and protein analysis in DMEM containing 10% FBS (DMEM/10% FBS). After 24 h, medium is removed and cells are placed in serum-free DMEM. After 48 h, different concentrations of Asiaticoside in DMEM/10% FBS are added simultaneously to cells. Control cells are grown in DMEM/10% FBS without the addition of Asiaticoside. At different time points, the fibroblasts are harvested for analysis[1].

    Animal Administration
    [3]

    Rats[3] Sprague-Dawley rats are used to establish the Alzheimer's disease (AD) model. Asiaticoside is administered orally at 5, 15 or 45 mg/kg body weight per day for 7 days. The learning and memory function of the rats are evaluated by the MWM test 7 days after surgery. The swimming pool (180 cm in diameter) is maintained at 22-24°C, and divided into four quadrants with equal size. A hidden platform is placed in the center of one quadrant. Each of the cardinal points of these four quadrants is randomLy selected as the start location. On the pre-test day, rats are allowed to swim freely for 120 sec. During the test (days 1-4), each rat is subjected to 8 trials each day. The trial begins when a rat is placed in the pool, and ended when the rat finds the platform. The escape latency is recorded. If a rat fails to find the platform within 120 sec, the trial is terminated and the escape latency is recorded as 120 sec, and the rat is guided to the platform. On day 5, the swimming path is recorded by a video recording system, and the digital images are analyzed by the water maze software. In addition, the probe test is performed, in which the platform is removed, and the rat is allowed to swim freely in the pool for 120 sec. The swimming time in the target quadrant is recorded[3].

    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.
