Description

Silychristin is an abundant flavonolignan present in the fruits of Silybum marianum, with antioxidant properties. Silychristin is a potent inhibitor of the thyroid hormone transporter MCT8, and elicits a strong inhibition of T3 uptake with an IC50 of 110 nM[1][2].

IC50 & Target

MCT8[2]

In Vitro

Silychristin exhibits a strong inhibition of MCT8-mediated T3 uptake with an IC50 of 110 nM in MCT8 overexpressing MDCK1-cells[2].
Silychristin causes no cytotoxic for fibroblasts[3].
Silychristin (6.5-75 μM; 24 hours) diminishes UVA toxicity and reduces ROS generation, and the protective effect is dose-dependent[3].
Silychristin (12.5μM, 25μM) reduces the metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) level in cells[3].

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

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.
