    Human Endogenous Metabolite

     

    In Vitro

    Niacin (0-900 μM, 42 hours) significantly increases GSH levels and decreases ROS levels, and affects the expression of genes related to apoptosis and lipid metabolism[1].
    Niacin (0-40 μM, 24 hours) can inhibit cancer invasive activity at low dose but with no influence on proliferation[2].

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

    RT-PCR[1]

    Cell Line: Cumulus cells and oocytes of prepubertal gilts
    Concentration: 600 μM
    Incubation Time: 42 hours
    Result: Up-regulated the relative expression of the anti-apoptotic gene BCL2 and lipid metabolism gene ACACA while down-regulated the pro-apoptotic gene BAX.

    Cell Proliferation Assay[2]

    Cell Line: Rat ascites hepatoma cell line of AH109A
    Concentration: 0-40 μM
    Incubation Time: 24 hours
    Result: Had no effect on the proliferation of AH109A cells but suppressed cell invasion from 2.5 μM to 40 μM.
    In Vivo

    Niacin (subcutaneous injection, 3-300 mg/kg, once) can induce vasodilation in a dose-dependent manner within minutes in male C57BL/6 mice[3].

    Animal Model: Male C57BL/6 mice[3]
    Dosage: 3-300 mg/kg
    Administration: Subcutaneous injection; once
    Result: Induced vasodilation in a dose-dependent manner.
