Cat. No.: HY-P0018B Purity: 99.35%
Handling Instructions

Pepstatin Ammonium is a specific aspartic protease inhibitor produced by actinomycetes, with IC50s of 4.5 nM, 6.2 nM, 150 nM, 290 nM, 520 nM and 260 nM for hemoglobin-pepsin, hemoglobin-proctase, casein-pepsin, casein-proctase, casein-acid protease and hemoglobin-acid protease, respectively. Pepstatin Ammonium also inhibits HIV protease.

Description

Pepstatin Ammonium is a specific aspartic protease inhibitor produced by actinomycetes, with IC50s of 4.5 nM, 6.2 nM, 150 nM, 290 nM, 520 nM and 260 nM for hemoglobin-pepsin, hemoglobin-proctase, casein-pepsin, casein-proctase, casein-acid protease and hemoglobin-acid protease, respectively. Pepstatin Ammonium also inhibits HIV protease.

IC50 & Target

IC50: 4.5 nM (Hemoglobin-pepsin), 6.2 nM (Hemoglobin-proctase), 150 nM (Casein-pepsin), 260 nM (Hemoglobin-acid protease), 290 nM (Casein-proctase), 520 nM (Casein-acid protease)[1]

In Vitro

Pepstatin Ammonium is a specific acid protease inhibitor produced by actinomycetes, with IC50s of 4.5 nM, 6.2 nM, 150 nM, 290 nM, 520 nM and 260 nM for hemoglobin-pepsin, hemoglobin-proctase, casein-pepsin, casein-proctase, casein-acid protease and hemoglobin-acid protease, respectively[1]. Pepstatin (Pepstatin A) inhibits the recombinant HIV protease with an IC50 of 250 μM. Pepstatin shows no effect on cellular protein synthesis and probably does not exert severe cell toxicity[2].

In Vivo

Pepstatin has a very low toxicity, with LD50s of 1090 mg/kg, 875 mg/kg, 820 mg/kg and 450 mg/kg for mice, rats, rabbits, and dogs by i.p. route, and >2000 mg/kg for all species by oral route. Pepstatin (0.5-50 mg/kg, p.o.) suppresses stomach ulceration of the pylorus in ligated Shay rats[1].

Cell Assay
[2]

Pepstatin A is freshly dissolved in DMSO at 7 mM. It is very slowly diluted (1:100) into the medium of HIV-infected H9 suspension cultures so that no pepstatin A precipitated (final concentration, 70 μM pepstatin A and 1% DMSO), and the cultures are incubated without change of culture medium for 48 hr. As control, uninfected H9 cells are also incubated with pepstatin and in addition HIV infected and uninfected cells are incubated with 1% DMSO but without pepstatin[2].

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