Description

Nabumetone is an orally active non-acidic anti-inflammatory agent, acts as a potent and selective COX-2 inhibitor, and is the proagent of the active metabolite 6MNA.

IC50 & Target[1]

COX-2

 

In Vitro

Nabumetone is a potent and selective COX-2 inhibitor. Nabumetone (50 μmol-2 mmol) dose-dependently inhibits the proliferation of K-562 and Meg-01 cells, but shows no obvious apoptotic effect. Nabumetone potentiates the apoptotic effect of ADR in the K-562 cell line. Moreover, Nabumetone reduces Bcl-2 expression[1].

MedChemExpress (MCE) has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

In Vivo

Nabumetone (79 mg/kg, p.o.) inhibits paw oedema and paw exudate PGE2 in rats. Nabumetone does not induce gastric damage and causes only 57% inhibition of gastric mucosal 6-keto-PGF production in rats[2]. Nabumetone (25, 50, 100 mg/kg, i.p.) dose-dependently inhibits the increase of DDC-induced mucus secretion and stimulates stress-induced mucus secretion in rats. Nabumetone (25 mg/kg, i.p.) significantly suppresses stress-induced ulcer index in rats[3].

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    40% PEG300    5% Tween-80    45% Saline

    Solubility: ≥ 2.08 mg/mL (9.11 mM); Clear solution

    This protocol yields a clear solution of ≥ 2.08 mg/mL (saturation unknown).

    Taking 1 mL working solution as an example, add 100 μL DMSO stock solution (20.8 mg/mL) to 400 μL PEG300, and mix evenly; then add 50 μL Tween-80 and mix evenly; then add 450 μL Saline to adjust the volume to 1 mL.

    Preparation of Saline: Dissolve 0.9 g sodium chloride in ddH₂O and dilute to 100 mL to obtain a clear Saline solution.
  • Protocol 2

    Add each solvent one by one:  10% DMSO    90% (20% SBE-β-CD in Saline)

    Solubility: ≥ 2.08 mg/mL (9.11 mM); Clear solution

    This protocol yields a clear solution of ≥ 2.08 mg/mL (saturation unknown).

    Taking 1 mL working solution as an example, add 100 μL DMSO stock solution (20.8 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.

Cell Assay
[1]

Every cell line is plated into 6-well plates at a concentration of 3 × 105/mL with or without drugs (Nabumetone, etc.) and incubated for 48 h. Viable cells are then counted using the trypan blue dye exclusion test. The percentage of proliferation inhibition is calculated as 1-(viable cells exposed to drug/viable cells in control) ×100[1].

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

Animal Administration
[3]

Rats[3]
Albino male rats (250- to 300-g body weight) are used in the study. The animals are maintained in a single cage and are deprived of food for 16 h before the onset of experiments. Free access to water is allowed until 1 h before the beginning of experiments. There are eight rats in each group. The animals are pretreated with intraperitoneal injections of Nabumetone or dipyrone at 25-, 50-, or 100-mg/kg doses for 3 days[3].

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.
