Ginkgolide C (10-100 μM) significantly suppresses lipid accumulation compared with the control group and also significantly promotes glycerol release in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Ginkgolide C suppresses PPAR-α and PPAR-γ expression and decreases C/EBPα, C/EBPβ, and SREBP-1c expression in differentiated 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Ginkgolide C (3-100 μM) also significantly promotes Sirt1 production and increases phosphorylation of AMPKα and ACC-1 in a concentration-dependent manner. Ginkgolide C (1, 10, 50, 100, 500 mM) significantly reduces the collagen (10 mg/mL)-stimulated rat platelet aggregation in a dose-dependent manner. Ginkgolide C (50, 100 mM) causes pro-MMP-9 (92-kDa) to form an activated MMP-9 (86-kDa) in collagen-stimulated platelets.
|Cell lines||3T3-L1 cells|
|Preparation method||3T3-L1 cells are treated with various concentrations of ginkgolide C in 96-well plates for 24 h. Cell viability is analyzed by the MTT assay. The culture medium is removed, and the cells are incubated with 100 μL MTT solution (5 mg/mL) for 4 h at 37°C. After plates are washed, isopropanol is added to dissolve formazone crystals, followed by absorbance detection with a spectrophotometer at 570 nm.|
|Concentrations||3 μM-100 μM|
|Incubation time||24 h|
|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.
|Solubility||DMSO: ≥ 100 mg/mL|
