Glycitein is a soy isoflavone used to study apoptosis and antioxidant[1][2][3].

In Vitro

Glycitein (0-30 μM, 4 days/20 h) inhibits the dextran-coated charcoal/fetal bovine serum (DDC-FBS)-induced growth (4 days) and DNA synthesis (20 h) of aortic smooth muscle cells (SMC) from stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRSP)[3].
Glycitein (0-100 μM, 24 h) inhibits the viability in human gastric cancer cells, induces apoptosis and induces G0/G1 phase arrest[4].
Glycitein (100 μg/mL, 2 days) protects against Aβ-induced toxicity and oxidative stress in transgenic C. elegans[6].

Cell Viability Assay[4]

Cell Line: human gastric cancer cells (AGS, MKN-28, MKN-45, NCI-N87, YCC-1, YCC-6, SNU-5, SNU-216, SNU-484, SNU-668)
Concentration: 24 h
Incubation Time: 0-100 μM
Result: IC50: 30.98, 60.17, 35.07, 36.05, 33.11, 88.62, 97.68, 83.02, 46.87, 87.55 μM respectively.

Apoptosis Analysis[4]

Cell Line: AGS cells
Concentration: 30 μM
Incubation Time: 3, 6, 12, and 24 hr
Result: Increased the expression of Bax, Caspase-3 and cleaved PARP protein, and decreased levels of Bcl-2.
Increased the fluorescence intensity of PI staining.
In Vivo

Glycitein (3 mg/day, oral gavage, 4 days) has weak estrogenic activity, and increases uterine weight in weaning female B6D2F1 mice[1].
Glycitein (15, 30, or 45 mg/kg in diet) in sows during late pregnancy and lactation enhances antioxidative indices, decreases the content of MDA in sow's plasma and milk, improves milk composition, and enhancesthe growth performance of the sucking piglets[5].

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.
