Biological Activity

In vitro: Apoptosis is a pathway of cell death orchestrated by a family of proteases called caspases. Boc-D-fmk inhibits TNFα-stimulated reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation. Boc-D-FMK inhibits apoptosis stimulated by TNF-α with an IC50 of 39 µM. BocD-fmk at 50 µM prevents genistein-induced apoptosis of p815 cells. Confocal microscopy shows that the release of mitochondrial apoptotic factors is inhibited by BocD-fmk. In vivo: Boc-D-FMK-fmk effectively attenuates the hepatocyte apoptosis in bile duct-ligated rats and may improve the survival rates after endotoxin challenge. A single injection of Boc-D-FMK results in longterm protection of MNs against root avulsion-induced death for more than 8 weeks and the Boc-D-FMK-treated MNs are able to regenerate their axons into an implanted PN graft and reinnervate the target muscle.

Cell Experiment
Cell lines Neutrophils
Preparation method Neutrophils (11.1 × 10^6 cells/mL) were cultured for 30 minutes in the presence or absence of 0.03-300 μM z-VAD-fmk or Boc-D-fmk before addition of TNFα (200 U/mL). Cells (100 μL) were added to a microtiter plate followed by an equal volume of lucigenin (0.25 mM for extracellular ROS release) or luminol (1 mM for intra- and extracellular ROS release).
Concentrations 3-300 μM
Incubation time 30 min
Animal Experiment
Animal models Male Sprague–Dawley rats
Formulation DMSO
Dosages 1.5 mg/kg
Administration i.v.
Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)
Species Mouse Rat Rabbit Guinea pig Hamster Dog
Weight (kg) 0.02 0.15 1.8 0.4 0.08 10
Body Surface Area (m2) 0.007 0.025 0.15 0.05 0.02 0.5
Km factor 3 6 12 8 5 20
Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A Km

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
