Nonivamide is a agonist, which exhibits 4d-EC50 value of 5.1 mg/L in static toxicity tests.

IC50 & Target


In Vitro

Nonivamide, a synthetic derivate of natural capsaicin, has an effective antifouling activity. Capsaicin exhibits 4d-EC50 values of 5.5±0.5 mg/L, 23±2 mg/L, 6.9±0.2 mg/L, and 15.6±0.4 mg/L in static toxicity tests conducted using Pseudomonas putida, Lake Erie bacteria, Vibrio natriegens, and Vibrio parahaemolyticus, respectively. A significant growth inhibitory effect (p<0.01) is observed in the group treated with 1 mg/L of Nonivamide for 4 d, and the EC50 value (4 d-EC50) is 5.1 mg/L[1]. Nonivamide treatment causes calcium release from the ER and altered the transcription of growth arrest- and DNA damage-inducible transcript 3 (GADD153), GADD45α, GRP78/BiP, ATF3, CCND1, and CCNG2) in a manner comparable with prototypical ER stress-inducing agents. ER calcium flux is evaluated by pretreating cells with 2.5 μM thapsigargin for 5 min followed by addition of 2.5 μM Nonivamide. Treatment of TRPV1-overexpressing cells with 2.5 μM Nonivamide produces marked increases in cytosolic calcium due to release of calcium from ER stores. Treatment of TRPV1-overexpressing cells with 1 μM Nonivamide causes an approximate 50% loss in cell viability after a 24-h period. BEAS-2B cells treated with 100 and 200 μM Nonivamide also exhibits a shift in the relative amount of EIF2α-P and an increase in the expression of GADD153 mRNA and protein[2]. Treatment with Nonivamide reduces lipid accumulation to a similar extent as CAP; the effects are not different from the effects after CAP treatment at any of the tested concentrations. Compared to untreated control cells, treatment with Nonivamide decreases lipid accumulation by 5.34±1.03% (P<0.05) at 0.01 µM up to 10.4±2.47% (P<0.001) at 1 µM[3].

Cell Assay

In the MTT assay, the reduction of yellow tetrazolium salt MTT to a purple formazan by mitochondrial and ER enzymes is used as a measure for cell viability. Cells are seeded in 96‐well plates and treated with 1 nM-10 µM CAP or Nonivamide with or without addition of 25-100 µM BCH or the corresponding ethanol concentration (0.1-0.2% (v/v), solvent control) for 12 days after initiation of differentiation. Cell culture media is exchanged every second day. On Day 12, 100 µL of the MTT working reagent (0.83 mg/mL MTT diluted in PBS/serum-free media (1:5)), is added to each well, and cells are incubated at 37°C for approximately 15 min. The MTT working solution is removed and the purple formazan formed during incubation is dissolved in 150 µL DMSO per well. Absorbance is measured at 550 nm with 690 nm as reference wavelength using multiwell plate reader. The number of metabolically active cells is calculated relative to untreated control cells or the corresponding solvent control (100%)[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.
