Biological Activity

Trans-crocetin (Croceic Acid) is an NMDA receptor antagonist with high affinity, extracted from saffron (Crocus sativus L.). Transcrocetin is capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier and reach the central nervous system (CNS). Transcrocetin at higher concentrations (40-160 µM) reduces significantly cellular viability. 

*The compound is unstable in solutions, freshly prepared is recommended

Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)
Species Mouse Rat Rabbit Guinea pig Hamster Dog
Weight (kg) 0.02 0.15 1.8 0.4 0.08 10
Body Surface Area (m2) 0.007 0.025 0.15 0.05 0.02 0.5
Km factor 3 6 12 8 5 20
Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A Km

For example, to modify the dose of Compound A used for a mouse (20 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 20 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 Compound A of 10 mg/kg.
