Biological Activity

Streptozotocin (Streptozocin, STZ) is a naturally occurring chemical that is particularly toxic to the insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas in mammals. Streptozotocin specifically targets beta cells, entering via the glucose transporter GLUT2 and causing alkylation of DNA. Streptozotocin induces diabetes mellitus via reduction of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide in pancreatic β-cells in vivo. The effectiveness of STZ depends on the level of GLUT2 expression, which in turn may be influenced by age, sex, strain, or species.

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.
