Description

Pectic acid (Methyl protopectin), a polygalacturonic acid, induces cell apoptosis and necrosis in pituitary tumor cells. Pectic acid can be used in the research of cancers and autoimmune disease[2][3].

In Vitro

Pectic acid (2.5-100 μg/mL, 30 min) stimulates the release of prolactin (PRL) in GH3/B6 cells, without affecting the viability of cells[1].
Pectic acid (100 μg/mL-5 mg/mL, 6-48 h) increases cell death and DNA damage in GH3/B6 cells, detected by MTT assay and AO/EB staining[2].
Pectic acid (100 μg/mL-1 mg/mL, 24 h) induces apoptosis in GH3/B6 cells in a dose-dependent manner[2].
Pectic acid (2.5-5 mg/mL, 24 h) induces necrosis in GH3/B6 cells, confirmed by PI staining[2].

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

Cell Cycle Analysis[2]

Cell Line: GH3/B6 cells
Concentration: 1 mg/mL
Incubation Time: 24 h
Result: Induced sub G1 events, and DNA fragmentation, which was correlated with the number of the apoptotic cells.
In Vivo

Pectic acid (25 and 100 mg/kg, oral gavage) increases colon length, downregulates disease activity index, histopathological score and proinflammatory cytokine levels in Ulcerative colitis (UC) mice[3].
Pectic acid (6.25 and 12.5 mg/kg, intravenous injection) rescues the reduction in colon length in UC mice[3].

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

Animal Model: Ulcerative colitis (UC) mice[3]
Dosage: 25, 100 mg/kg
Administration: Oral gavage
Result: Exhibited the longest colon, lowest DAI, and minimum histopathological score.
Decreased the proinflammatory cytokines in the colonic tissue of UC mice.
Animal Model: Ulcerative colitis (UC) mice[3]
Dosage: 6.25, 12.5 mg/kg
Administration: Intravenous injection
Result: Decreased the spleen and thymus index.
Restored the Th17/Treg balance in the spleen and lamina propria of UC mice.
Improved the gut microbiota composition.
