Cat. No.: HY-Y0265 Purity: >97.0%
Handling Instructions

Isatin (Indoline-2,3-dione) is a potent inhibitor of monoamine oxidase (MAO) with an IC50 of 3 μM. Also binds to central benzodiazepine receptors (IC50 against clonazepam, 123 μM). Also acts as an antagonist of both atrial natriuretic peptide stimulated and nitric oxide-stimulated guanylate cyclase activity. Shows effect on the serotonergic system.

Description

Isatin (Indoline-2,3-dione) is a potent inhibitor of monoamine oxidase (MAO) with an IC50 of 3 μM. Also binds to central benzodiazepine receptors (IC50 against clonazepam, 123 μM)[1]. Also acts as an antagonist of both atrial natriuretic peptide stimulated and nitric oxide-stimulated guanylate cyclase activity[2]. Shows effect on the serotonergic system[3].

IC50 & Target

IC50: 3 μM (MAO B)[1]

In Vitro

In dopaminergic SH-SY5Y cells isatin (1-400 μM) induces cell death in dose- and time dependent manner. This death occurred as a continuum of survival, apoptosis and necrosis[2].

In Vivo

A single dose of isatin (80 mg/kg) has a rapid effect on the serotonergic system in the hypothalamus. Isatin significantly increases 5-HT concentrations in the hypothalamus and cortex but did not significantly alter 5-HIAA concentrations[3].
