Celastrol down-regulated the basal and DNA damaging agents-induced monoubiquitination of FANCD2,followed by proteolytic degradation. Celastrol treatment abrogated the G2 checkpoint induced by IR,and enhanced the ICL agents-induced DNA damage and inhibitory effects on lung cancer cells through depletion of FANCD2.Celastrol presented striking growth inhibition and apoptosis induction potency on DU145 cells in vitro in a time- and dose-dependent manner.Celastrol exhibits its antiprostate cancer effects partially through the downregulation of the expression level of hERG channel in DU145 cells,suggesting that celastrol may be a potential agent against prostate cancer with a mechanism of blocking the hERG channel.Celastrol ameliorates experimental colitis in IL-10 deficient mice via the up-regulation of autophagy by suppressing the PI3K/Akt/mTOR signaling pathway.Celastrol has the potential to inhibit cytochrome P450 activities and may cause the herb-drug interactions.Celastrol induces apoptosis in TNBC cells and indicated that apoptosis might be mediated through mitochondrial dysfunction and PI3K/Akt signaling pathway.
|Cell lines||RPMI 8226, KATOIII, UM-SCC1, U251MG and MDA-MB-231 cells|
|Preparation method||Determining the anti-proliferative effect of celastrol on various human tumor cell lines by the MTT uptake method. Briefly, incubating 5×103 cells with Celastrol in triplicate in a 96-well plate at 37 ℃. Then adding MTT solution to each well. After a 2 hours incubation at 37 ℃, adding extraction buffer (20% SDS, 50% dimethylformamide) , incubating cells overnight at 37 ℃, and then measuring the optical density at 570 nm using a Tecan plate reader.|
|Incubation time||2 hours|
|Animal models||nude mice bearing C4-2B tumors|
|Formulation||10% DMSO, 70% Cremophor/ethanol (3:1), and 20% PBS|
|Body Surface Area (m2)||0.007||0.025||0.15||0.05||0.02||0.5|
|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.
