Description

Brassinolide is a predominant plant growth modulator that regulate plant cell elongation.

IC50 & Target

plant growth modulator[1]

In Vitro

Brassinolide is a plant sterol first isolated from pollen of rape (Brassica napus L.). Brassinolide can induce a time and concentration-dependent cytotoxicity in PC-3 cells. The mode of cell death appears to be predominately apoptosis, as shown by flow-cytometric analysis, fluorescence and transmission electron microscopes. Caspase-3 activity is obviously increased after Brassinolide treatment. Western blot studies indicate that treatment with Brassinolide triggered a time-dependent decrease in the expression of anti-apoptotic protein Bcl-2, which suggests that Brassinolide can induce cytotoxicity in PC-3 cells by triggering apoptosis. Brassinolide might therefore be a promising candidate for the treatment of prostate cancer[1]. Brassinolide is a plant growth modulator, on multidrug resistance (MDR) of human T lymphoblastoid cell line CCRF-VCR 1000 which is obtained by progressively addition of vincristine (VCR) to sensitive CCRF-CEM cells, and to explore preliminarily the mechanism of reversing action. After treatment of Brassinolide under the concentration of 0.001-10 μg/mL, the resistance of CCRF-VCR is reversed partly with the reversing folds respectively as 4.4-11.6. The intracellular accumulation of rhodamine 123 is significantly reduced in the resistant cells. After treatment of Brassinolide, the accumulation increased, the level of fluorescent dye is situated between resistant cells and sensitive cells. No alteration of the catalytic activity of topoisomerase II is found among three groups. The level of protein expression of p53 in resistant cells is higher than that of sensitive cells. After Brassinolide treatment, the expression of p53 in CCRF-VCR cells restored to the level of sensitive cells. Brassinolide can effectively reverse the resistance of CCRF-VCR cells by inhibiting the effusion of drug transported by P-glucoprotein. To down regulate the abnormal expression of p53 maybe one of the mechanisms of reversing MDR for Brassinolide[2].

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    90% (20% SBE-β-CD in Saline)

    Solubility: ≥ 2.5 mg/mL (5.20 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.
  • Protocol 2

    Add each solvent one by one:  10% DMSO    90% Corn Oil

    Solubility: ≥ 2.5 mg/mL (5.20 mM); Clear solution

    This protocol yields a clear solution of ≥ 2.5 mg/mL (saturation unknown). If the continuous dosing period exceeds half a month, please choose this protocol carefully.

    Taking 1 mL working solution as an example, add 100 μL DMSO stock solution (25.0 mg/mL) to 900 μL Corn oil, and mix evenly.

Cell Assay
[2]

MTT method is used to detect the resistant factor of resistant cell line and the reversing fold after addition of Brassinolide. The intracellular accumulation of rhodamine 123, a fluorescent dye transported by P-glycoprotein is detected by flow cytometry, the catalytic activity of topoisomerase II is assessed by Sulliven method to find the effect of Brassinolide on resistance. The protein expression of p53 is measured using Western blotting in the sensitive cells and resistant cells to explore the effect of Brassinolide[2].

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.
