Crocin IV (Dicrocin), a crocetin glycoside, is a carotenoid pigment. Crocin IV has potent antioxidant activity[1].

In Vitro

Crocin IV (Dicrocin; 10 μM; 24 hours) has little or no effect on the prolongation of cell survival in PC12 cell[1].
Crocin IV enhances γ-GCS mRNA expression in serum-deprived and hypoxic PC12 cells[1].
Measurements of cell viability, peroxidized membrane lipids and caspase-3 activity showed that the rank order of the neuroprotective potency at a concentration of 10 μM is crocin>tricrocin>dicrocin and picrocrocin (the latter two crocins had a little or no potency)[1].

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

The dilution calculator equation

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)

This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2
