In vitro: PGE2 shows inhibition of IL 2 production in the mixture of irradiated and nonirradiated T lymphocytes. PGE2 (0.1-10 μM) dose-dependently inhibits the production of IL 2. PGE2 acts during the inductive phase of activation of suppressor cells. Preincubation of T lymphocytes with PGE2 induces cells that suppress IL 2 production and PHA proliferation. In vivo: PGE2 (0.3 μg/k, i.p.) significantly reduces the number of peritoneab macrophages undergoing phagocytosis of the methacrybate microbeads in rats. PGE2 (0.1 mg/min, i.a.) increases renal blood flow. PGE2 produces a biphasic change in renal vascular resistance, vasodilatation starts at 0.01 mg/min and is maximal at about 3 mg/min, while at the highest dose used (20 mg/min) PGE2 induces renal vasoconstriction.
|Cell lines||ovulatory follicles|
|Preparation method||All cells and tissues were obtained after ovarian stimulation before (0 h) and 12, 24, or 36 h after administration of an ovulatory dose of hCG.|
|Incubation time||12, 24, or 36 h|
|Animal models||male dogs|
|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||10 mM in DMSO|
