Icaritin (Synonyms: Anhydroicaritin)

Cat. No.: HY-N0678 Purity: 99.24%
Handling Instructions

Icaritin (Anhydroicaritin) is a prenylflavonoid derivative from Epimedium Genusis and potently inhibits proliferation of K562 cells (IC50 of 8 µM) and primary CML cells (IC50 of 13.4 µM for CML-CP and 18 µM for CML-BC). Icaritin can regulate MAPK/ERK/JNK and JAK2/STAT3 /AKT signalings, also enhances osteogenesis[3.

Description

Icaritin (Anhydroicaritin) is a prenylflavonoid derivative from Epimedium Genusis and potently inhibits proliferation of K562 cells (IC50 of 8 µM) and primary CML cells (IC50 of 13.4 µM for CML-CP and 18 µM for CML-BC). Icaritin can regulate MAPK/ERK/JNK and JAK2/STAT3 /AKT signalings, also enhances osteogenesis[1][2][3.

In Vitro

Icaritin (4-64 µM; 48 hours; K562, imatinib-resistant cells and primary CML cells) treatment inhibits proliferation of K562, imatinib-resistant cells and primary CML cells [1].
Icaritin (0-64 µM; 48 hours; K562 and primary cells) treatment induces K562 or primary cells apoptosis in an concentration dependent manner[1].
Icaritin (32 µM; K562 cells) treatment increases cell population in the sub-G1 phase in K562 cells[1].
Icaritin (0-64 µM; 48 hours; K562 cells) treatment inhibits MAPK/ERK/JNK downstream signaling and diminishes Jak2/Stat3/Akt expression. Icaritin treatment also significantly inhibits Bcl-2 protein expression and up-regulated Bax protein expression in K562 with a dose-dependent manner accompanied by the cleavage activation of caspase-3 or caspase-9, and a down-regulated expression of Apaf-1[1].

Cell Proliferation Assay[1]

Cell Line: K562, imatinib-resistant cells and primary CML cells
Concentration: 4 µM, 8 µM, 16 µM, 32 µM and 64 µM
Incubation Time: 48 hours
Result: Inhibited cell proliferation.

Apoptosis Analysis[1]

Cell Line: K562 or primary cells
Concentration: 0 µM, 4 µM, 8 µM, 16 µM, 32 µM and 64 µM
Incubation Time: 48 hours
Result: Induced K562 or primary cells apoptosis.

Cell Cycle Analysis[1]

Cell Line: K562 cells
Concentration: 32 µM
Incubation Time:
Result: Cell population in the sub-G1 phase was increased.

Western Blot Analysis[1]

Cell Line: K562 cells
Concentration: 0 µM, 4 µM, 8 µM, 16 µM, 32 µM and 64 µM
Incubation Time: 48 hours
Result: Inhibited MAPK/ERK/JNK downstream signaling and diminishes Jak2/Stat3/Akt expression.
In Vivo

Icaritin (4-8 mg/kg; intraperitoneal injection; daily; for 10 weeks; female NOD-SCID nude mice) treatment could prolong lifespan of NOD-SCID nude mice inoculated with K562 cells without suppression of bone marrow in mouse leukemia model[1].

Animal Model: Female NOD-SCID nude mice (6-8 weeks old) with K562 cells[1]
Dosage: 4 mg/kg and 8 mg/kg
Administration: Intraperitoneal injection; daily; for 10 weeks
Result: Could prolong lifespan of NOD-SCID nude mice inoculated with K562 cells without suppression of bone marrow.
