Description

Schisandrin (Schizandrin), a dibenzocyclooctadiene lignan, is isolated from the fruit of Schisandra chinensis Baill. Schisandrin exhibits antioxidant, hepatoprotective, anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory activities. Schisandrin also can reverses memory impairment in rats[1][2][3].

In Vitro

Schisandrin (10-100 μM; pretreated for 2 h) inhibits LPS-stimulated NO production, iNOS protein and mRNA expression in a dose-dependent manner in RAW 264.7 cells[1].
Schisandrin (25-100 μM; pretreated for 2 h) inhibits prostaglandin E2 production, COX-2 protein and mRNA expression in LPS-stimulated RAW 264.7 macrophages[1].
Schisandrin inhibits the SK-HEP-1, SNU-638, and T47D cells proliferation, with IC50s of 42.0, 53.1, and 40.0 μM, respectively[3].
Schisandrin (10-60 μM; 48 h) enhances Doxorubicin -induced apoptosis and selectively reverses MCF-7/DOX resistance[4].

Cell Viability Assay[1]

Cell Line: RAW 264.7 macrophages
Concentration: 12.5, 25, 50, 100 μM
Incubation Time: Pretreated for 2 h and then incubated with LPS (1 μg/mL) for 18 h
Result: Markedly decreased iNOS protein expression a dose-dependent manner.
Significantly inhibited COX-2 protein expression.
In Vivo

Schisandrin (10-100 mg/kg; a single i.p.) inhibits acetic acid-induced peritoneal vascular permeability and reduces the carrageenan-induced paw edema of mice[1].
Schisandrin (1-10 mg/kg; a single p.o.) significantly reverses the Scopolamine-induced impairment of spatial memory and passive avoidance response, and enhances tremors induced by Oxotremorine in rats[2].

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

Animal Model: Male ICR mice (4-weeks) were treated with λ-carrageenan by intraperitoneal injection into the right hind paw[1]
Dosage: 100, 200 mg/kg
Administration: A single i.p.
Result: Inhibited paw edema by 33.43 % (100 mg/kg) and 57.38 % (200 mg/kg) at 3 h.

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: ≥ 0.28 mg/mL (0.65 mM); Clear solution

    This protocol yields a clear solution of ≥ 0.28 mg/mL (saturation unknown).

    Taking 1 mL working solution as an example, add 100 μL DMSO stock solution (2.8 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.

Working solution concentration: mg/mL
Method for preparing stock solution: mg drug dissolved in μL  DMSO (Stock solution concentration: mg/mL).
The concentration of the stock solution you require exceeds the measured solubility. The following solution is for reference only. If necessary, please contact MedChemExpress (MCE).
Method for preparing in vivo working solution for animal experiments: Take μL DMSO stock solution, add μL . μL , mix evenly, next add μL Tween 80, mix evenly, then add μL Saline.
 If the continuous dosing period exceeds half a month, please choose this protocol carefully.
Please ensure that the stock solution in the first step is dissolved to a clear state, and add co-solvents in sequence. You can use ultrasonic heating (ultrasonic cleaner, recommended frequency 20-40 kHz), vortexing, etc. to assist dissolution.

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.
