Product Description

Echinocystic acid is a naturally occurring pentacyclic triterpene found in the fruits of Gleditsia sinensis Lam with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticancer pactivities.

Biological Activity I Assay Protocols (From Reference)
ln Vitro
Echinocystic acid (2.5–10 μM; 1 hour off) suppresses the activation of NF-κB and MAPK caused by IL-1β [1]. Echinacetic acid exhibits dose-dependent inhibition of MMP-13, NO, and PGE2 produced by IL-1β. COX-2 and iNOS are upregulated in response to IL-1β, and echinocystic acid inhibits this upregulation [1].
ln Vivo
In a dyad model of pain and depression generated by reserpine, echinocystic acid (5 mg/kg daily for 5 days) had antidepressant effects [2].
Cell Assay
Western Blot Analysis [1]
Cell Types: Chondrocytes
Tested Concentrations: 2.5 μM, 5 μM, 10 μM
Incubation Duration: Pretreatment for 1 hour, then stimulated with IL-1β for 30 minutes.
Experimental Results: IL-1β-induced NF-κB and MAPK activation was inhibited.
Animal Protocol
Animal/Disease Models: Male adult C57BL/6 mice (8-10 weeks old; 18 to 22 g) with reserpine injection [2]
Doses: 5 mg/kg
Route of Administration: Intragastric; one time/day for 5 days
Experimental Results: Partially alleviates the pain/depression binary effects of reserpine by modulating biogenic amine levels and GluN2B receptors in the hippocampus.

Solubility Data
Solubility (In Vitro)
DMSO : ~50 mg/mL (~105.78 mM)
Solubility (In Vivo)
Solubility in Formulation 1: ≥ 2.75 mg/mL (5.82 mM) (saturation unknown) in 10% DMSO + 90% Corn Oil (add these co-solvents sequentially from left to right, and one by one), clear solution.
For example, if 1 mL of working solution is to be prepared, you can add 100 μL of 27.5 mg/mL clear DMSO stock solution to 900 μL of corn oil and mix evenly.

 (Please use freshly prepared in vivo formulations for optimal results.)
Preparing Stock Solutions 1 mg 5 mg 10 mg
1 mM 2.1155 mL 10.5775 mL 21.1551 mL
5 mM 0.4231 mL 2.1155 mL 4.2310 mL
10 mM 0.2116 mL 1.0578 mL 2.1155 mL

*Note: Please select an appropriate solvent for the preparation of stock solution based on your experiment needs. For most products, DMSO can be used for preparing stock solutions (e.g. 5 mM, 10 mM, or 20 mM concentration); some products with high aqueous solubility may be dissolved in water directly. Solubility information is available at the above Solubility Data section. Once the stock solution is prepared, aliquot it to routine usage volumes and store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid repeated freeze and thaw cycles.

Calculator

Molarity Calculator allows you to calculate the mass, volume, and/or concentration required for a solution, as detailed below:

  • Calculate the Mass of a compound required to prepare a solution of known volume and concentration
  • Calculate the Volume of solution required to dissolve a compound of known mass to a desired concentration
  • Calculate the Concentration of a solution resulting from a known mass of compound in a specific volume
An example of molarity calculation using the molarity calculator is shown below:
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 5 ml of DMSO given that the molecular weight of the compound is 350.26 g/mol?
  • Enter 350.26 in the Molecular Weight (MW) box
  • Enter 10 in the Concentration box and choose the correct unit (mM)
  • Enter 5 in the Volume box and choose the correct unit (mL)
  • Click the “Calculate” button
  • The answer of 17.513 mg appears in the Mass box. In a similar way, you may calculate the volume and concentration.

Dilution Calculator allows you to calculate how to dilute a stock solution of known concentrations. For example, you may Enter C1, C2 & V2 to calculate V1, as detailed below:

What volume of a given 10 mM stock solution is required to make 25 ml of a 25 μM solution?
Using the equation C1V1 = C2V2, where C1=10 mM, C2=25 μM, V2=25 ml and V1 is the unknown:
  • Enter 10 into the Concentration (Start) box and choose the correct unit (mM)
  • Enter 25 into the Concentration (End) box and select the correct unit (mM)
  • Enter 25 into the Volume (End) box and choose the correct unit (mL)
  • Click the “Calculate” button
  • The answer of 62.5 μL (0.1 ml) appears in the Volume (Start) box
g/mol

Molecular Weight Calculator allows you to calculate the molar mass and elemental composition of a compound, as detailed below:

Note: Chemical formula is case sensitive: C12H18N3O4  c12h18n3o4
Instructions to calculate molar mass (molecular weight) of a chemical compound:
  • To calculate molar mass of a chemical compound, please enter the chemical/molecular formula and click the “Calculate’ button.
Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
  • Molecular mass (or molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
  • Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.

Reconstitution Calculator allows you to calculate the volume of solvent required to reconstitute your vial.

  • Enter the mass of the reagent and the desired reconstitution concentration as well as the correct units
  • Click the “Calculate” button
