Zinc Protoporphyrin (Synonyms: Zn(II)-protoporphyrin IX; ZnPP; Zinc Protoporphyrin-9)

Cat. No.: HY-101193 Purity: >98.0%
Handling Instructions

Zinc Protoporphyrin (Zn(II)-protoporphyrin IX) is an orally active and competitive heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) inhibitor and markedly attenuates the protective effects of Phloroglucinol (PG) against H2O2. Zinc Protoporphyrin is used as a screening marker of iron deficiency in individual pregnant women and children, but also to assess population iron status in combination with haemoglobin concentration. Zinc Protoporphyrin has anti-cancer activity.

Description

Zinc Protoporphyrin (Zn(II)-protoporphyrin IX) is an orally active and competitive heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) inhibitor and markedly attenuates the protective effects of Phloroglucinol (PG) against H2O2[1]. Zinc Protoporphyrin is used as a screening marker of iron deficiency in individual pregnant women and children, but also to assess population iron status in combination with haemoglobin concentration[2]. Zinc Protoporphyrin has anti-cancer activity[3].

Human Endogenous Metabolite

 

In Vitro

Zinc Protoporphyrin (Zn(II)-protoporphyrin IX; 5 μM; 72 hours) causes the fraction of late apoptotic and necrotic cells increasing from 10.9% in controls to 30.4% after 72 h[3].
Zinc Protoporphyrin (1.25-40 μM; 48 or 72 hours) exerts cystostatic/cytotoxic effects against tumor cells[3].
Zinc Protoporphyrin (2.5, 5 μM; 48 or 72 hours) results in dose- and time-dependent reduction of cells in G1 phase of the cell cycle[3].
Zinc Protoporphyrin (1.25-40 μM; 48 hours) leads to accumulation of cleaved (active) caspase-3[3].

Apoptosis Analysis[3]

Cell Line: C-26 cells
Concentration: 5 μM
Incubation Time: 72 hours
Result: The fraction of late apoptotic and necrotic cells increased from 10.9% in controls to 30.4% after 72 h.

Cell Cytotoxicity Assay[3]

Cell Line: C-26 and MDA-MB231 cells
Concentration: 1.25, 2.5, 5, 10, 20, 40 μM
Incubation Time: 48 or 72 hours
Result: Exerted cystostatic/cytotoxic effects against tumor cells.

Cell Cycle Analysis[3]

Cell Line: C-26 cells
Concentration: 2.5, 5 μM

In Vivo

Zinc Protoporphyrin (12.5, 25, 50 mg/kg for i.p.; 12.5, 50 mg/kg for p.o.; from day 7 to 19) exerts dose-dependent antitumor effects manifested by the retardation of tumor growth[3].

Animal Model: BALB/c mice inoculated with C-26 cells[3]
Dosage: 12.5, 25, 50 mg/kg for i.p.; 12.5, 50 mg/kg for p.o.
Administration: IP or PO; from day 7 to 19
Result: Exerted dose-dependent antitumor effects manifested by the retardation of tumor growth.
