Biological Activity

Flavopiridol hydrochloride is a potent cyclin-dependent kinases inhibitor with an IC50 of 100 nM. Preclinically, flavopiridol is the first cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor. At the nanomolar concentrations, flavoporidol hydrochloride prevented rhabdoid cell growth with an IC50 ranging from 50 to 200 nM. Meanwhile, flavopiridol hydrochloride induced G1 and G2 arrest and apoptosis in vitro in a concentration-dependent manner. These influences were associated with the down- regulation of cyclin D1, up- modulation of p21, and induction of caspase 3/7 activities. At a dose of 7.5 mg/kg, flavopiridol markedly suppress the growth of xenografted rhabdoid tumors. That was associated with the induction of p21 and downregulation of cyclin D1. Treatment of flavopiridol decreased the activities of CDK2 and potently prevented cell proliferation with an IC50 ranging from 43 to 83 nM in HNSCC cells.

Cell Experiment
Cell lines SUDHL4, SUDHL6, Jurkat, MOLT4, and HL60
Preparation method Growing cells at a density of 1 × 106 cells/mL are exposed to Flavopiridol for different concentrations and time periods. DNA is extracted. Briefly, washing cells once with cold phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) and lysing with 3 mL lysis buffer (5 mM Tris-HCL [pH 7.5]; 20 mM EDTA; 0.5% Triton X-100) for 15 minutes at 4 °C. The chromatin of the cell lysates is isolated by centrifugation (20 minutes at 26,000g, 4 °C). The supernatants containing small DNA fragments are extracted sequentially with phenol, phenol:chloroform (1:1), and chloroform. Nucleic acids are precipitated in 0.5 M NaCl, 90% ethanol at -20 °C overnight. Then digested RNA by bovine RNAaseA (60 μg/mL). After sequential reextraction and reprecipitation, DNA is dissolved in 10 mM Tris-HCL (pH 7.5), 1 mM EDTA, 0.5% sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) before electrophoresis on 1.6% agarose gel.

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.
