Description

Fucosterol is a sterol isolated from algae, seaweed or diatoms. Fucosterol exhibits various biological activities, including antioxidant, anti-adipogenic, blood cholesterol reducing, anti-diabetic and anti-cancer activities[1][2]. Fucosterol regulates adipogenesis via inhibition of PPARα and C/EBPα expression and can be used for anti-obesity agents development research[1].

IC50 & Target

PPARα; C/EBPα[1]

In Vitro

Fucosterol (0-50 μM; 7 days) suppresses the expression of PPARα and C/EBPα when compared to fully differentiated control adipocytes[1]. Fucosterol shows cytotoxicity against T47D and HT29 cell lines with IC50 values of 27.94 and 70.41 μg/ml, respectively[3].
Fucosterol decreases cell HEK293, MCF-7, and SiHa cells proliferation with IC50 values of 185.4, 43.3, and 34.0 μg/ml, respectively[4].

Cell Viability Assay[1]

Cell Line: 3T3-L1 adipocytes
Concentration: 0 μM; 25 μM; 50 μM
Incubation Time: 7 days
Result: Inhibited PPARα and C/EBPα expression.
In Vivo

Fucosterol (oral adminstratin; 30mg/kg) causes a significant decrease in serum glucose concentrations, and exhibits an inhibition of sorbitol accumulations in the lenses[2].

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% EtOH    90% Corn Oil

    Solubility: ≥ 1.67 mg/mL (4.05 mM); Clear solution

    This protocol yields a clear solution of ≥ 1.67 mg/mL (saturation unknown). If the continuous dosing period exceeds half a month, please choose this protocol carefully.

    Taking 1 mL working solution as an example, add 100 μL EtOH stock solution (16.7 mg/mL) to 900 μL Corn oil, and mix evenly.

For the following dissolution methods, please prepare the working solution directly. It is recommended to prepare fresh solutions and use them promptly within a short period of time.
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:  Corn Oil

    Solubility: 10 mg/mL (24.23 mM); Clear solution; Need ultrasonic and warming and heat to 45°C

  • Protocol 2

    Add each solvent one by one:  17% Solutol HS-15 in Saline

    Solubility: 6.25 mg/mL (15.14 mM); Suspended solution; Need ultrasonic and warming and heat to 42°C

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.
