BW 245C is a prostanoid DP-receptor (DP1) agonist, used to treat stroke.

IC50 & Target[1]



In Vitro

BW245C (0.01-1 μM) suppresses TGF-β-induced collagen secretion in a dose-dependent manner in Th2 cells. BW245C (0.01-1 μM) also increases intracellular cAMP in lung fibroblasts[3]. BW245C (0.1-3 μmol/L) dose-dependently increases transendothelial electrical resistance and decreases the FITC-dextran permeability of human umbilical vein endothelial cells. BW245C (0.3 μmol/L) increases the intracellular cAMP level and subsequent protein kinase A (PKA) activity[4].

In Vivo

BW245C (0.02, 0.2, and 2.0 mg/kg) in WT mice results in a significant increase in CBF, but this effect of this treatment is absent in DP1−/− mice. BW245C attenuates functional deficits after stroke. BW245C significantly reverses these conditions that neurologic deficit is significantly augmented, whereas locomotor activity is significantly reduced after stroke in WT mice. BW245C (0.2 mg/kg) injection 1 h after stroke results in a significant decrease in brain infarction in WT mice, whereas the effect of this treatment is not observed in DP1−/− mice. BW245C improves CBF during and after stroke. BW245C results in significantly prolonged bleeding compared with the vehicle-treated group[1]. BW 245C (100 nM) does not significantly increase MBP-positive eosinophils in esophageal epithelium in OVA-sensitized guinea pigs[2].

Animal Administration

The mice are untreated or given an i.p. injection of the vehicle (1% DMSO) or 0.2-mg/kg BW245C. Thirty minutes after the injection, the mice are anesthetized and placed on a thermoregulated pad to maintain body temperature, and 3 mm of the tail tip is excised. The tail is immediately dipped in warm PBS (37.0±0.5°C) and time to visible cessation of bleeding is recorded.

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.
