Nifedipine (BAY-a-1040) is a potent calcium channel blocker and agent of choice for cardiac insufficiencies.

In Vitro

Nifedipine (BAY-a-1040) (100 μM) significantly lowers the viability of the WKPT-0293 Cl.2 Cells, and treatment of nifedipine (10 or 100 μM) plus FAC induces a significant reduction in cell viability, but there are no significant differences in viability between the control cells and the cells treated with 100 μM of FAC or 1 and 10 μM of nifedipine.Nifedipine (BAY-a-1040) (1, 10, or 100 μM) significantly increases iron level in WKPT-0293 Cl.2 cells. Nifedipine treatment also increases expression of TfR1, DMT1+IRE and DMT1-IRE in WKPT-0293 Cl.2 cells. In addition, co-treatment with nifedipine (100 μM) and FAC (100 μM) increases TfR1, DMT1+IRE and DMT1-IRE expression in WKPT-0293 Cl.2 cells[2]. Nifedipine plus ritodrine produces a significantly greater inhibition of contractility than each drug alone in the midrange of concentrations. The combination of nifedipine plus nitroglycerin or nifedipine plus atosiban produces a significantly greater inhibition than nitroglycerin or atosiban alone but not greater than nifedipine. The combination of nifedipine plus NS-1619 (Ca2+-activated K+ [BKCa] channel opener) reduces the inhibitory effect of each drug[3]. Nifedipine (BAY-a-1040) (2 μM) significantly inhibits P. capsici mycelial growth and sporulation. Nifedipine (BAY-a-1040)-induced inhibition of mycelial growth is calcium-dependent. Nifedipine (0.5 μM) increases P. capsici sensitivity to H2O2 in a calcium-dependent manner[4].

In Vivo

In Nifedipine (BAY-a-1040) (50 mg/kg)- and CsA-treated rats, the BL dimensions (BLi and BLk), MD dimensions (MDk) and vertical dimensions (VHi and VHk) are significantly increased (P < 0.05) at the end of the 4th week[1].

Purity & Documentation
Cell Assay

Cell viability is assessed using an MTT assay. Briefly, a total of 25 μL MTT (1 g/L in PBS) is added to each well before incubation is conducted at 37°C for 4 h. The assay is stopped by the addition of a 100 μL lysis buffer (20% SDS in 50% N’Ndimethylformamide, pH 4.7). Optical density (OD) is measured at the 570 nm wavelength by the use of an ELX-800 microplate assay reader and the results are expressed as a percentage of the absorbance measured in the control cells.

Animal Administration

All the 30 rats are randomLy distributed into three equal groups of ten animals each. Group 1 (control) receive olive oil for the 8 weeks. Group 2 and Group 3 receive a combination of CsA (30 mg/kg body weight) and Nf (50 mg/kg body weight) in olive oil for 8 weeks. In Group 3 rats, Azi (10 mg/kg body weight) is added to this regimen, in the 5th week. The total study period is 8 weeks.

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.
