|Biological Activity or Inhibitors:||1. Bisacurone has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-metastatic activities.
2. Bisacurone may have a protective effect against ethanol-induced liver injury by suppressing hepatic oxidation and inflammation.
|Solvent:||Chloroform, Dichloromethane, Ethyl Acetate, DMSO, Acetone, etc.|
|Storage:||Providing storage is as stated on the product vial and the vial is kept tightly sealed, the product can be stored for up to 24 months(2-8C).
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20C. Generally, these will be useable for up to two weeks. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.

|After receiving:||The packaging of the product may have turned upside down during transportation, resulting in the natural compounds adhering to the neck or cap of the vial. take the vial out of its packaging and gently shake to let the compounds fall to the bottom of the vial. for liquid products, centrifuge at 200-500 RPM to gather the liquid at the bottom of the vial. try to avoid loss or contamination during handling.|

|A hot water extract of turmeric (Curcuma longa) suppresses acute ethanol-induced liver injury in mice by inhibiting hepatic oxidative stress and inflammatory cytokine production.[Pubmed: 28620478 ]|
|Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a widely used spice that has various biological effects, and aqueous extracts of turmeric exhibit potent antioxidant activity and anti-inflammatory activity. Bisacurone, a component of turmeric extract, is known to have similar effects. Oxidative stress and inflammatory cytokines play an important role in ethanol-induced liver injury. This study was performed to evaluate the influence of a hot water extract of C. longa (WEC) or Bisacurone on acute ethanol-induced liver injury. C57BL/6 mice were orally administered WEC (20 mg/kg body weight; BW) or Bisacurone (60 μg/kg BW) at 30 min before a single dose of ethanol was given by oral administration (3·0 g/kg BW). The increase of alanine aminotransferase was also significantly suppressed by pretreatment with Bisacurone. Compared with control mice, animals given WEC had higher hepatic tissue levels of superoxide dismutase and glutathione, as well as lower hepatic tissue levels of thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances, TNF-α protein and IL-6 mRNA. These results suggest that oral administration of WEC may have a protective effect against ethanol-induced liver injury by suppressing hepatic oxidation and inflammation, at least partly through the effects of Bisacurone.|

|Bisacurone inhibits adhesion of inflammatory monocytes or cancer cells to endothelial cells through down-regulation of VCAM-1 expression.[Pubmed: 18602074 ]|
|Bisacurone, one of the active compounds of the traditionally used indigenous herb Curcuma longa Linne (Zingiberaceae), has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-metastatic activities. We studied how the level of vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1), one of the key molecules in the development of atherosclerosis as well as carcinogenesis and metastasis, might be affected by Bisacurone in tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha)-activated human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). Bisacurone dose-dependently inhibited TNF-alpha-mediated expression of VCAM-1. It showed significant suppressive effect on ROS generation in response to TNF-alpha stimulation and it blocked nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kappaB) p65 translocation into the nucleus and phosphorylation of inhibitory factor kappaBalpha (IkappaBalpha). It also inhibited phosphorylation of Akt and PKC, which are upstream in the regulation of VCAM-1 by TNF-alpha. Furthermore, Bisacurone decreased U937 monocyte and human oral cancer cell (Hep-2, QLL-I, SCC-15) adhesion to HUVECs stimulated by TNF-alpha, suggesting that it may inhibit the binding of these cells by regulating the expression of critical adhesion molecules by TNF-alpha. Thus, Bisacurone may be beneficial in the treatment of inflammatory diseases, such as atherosclerosis, where inflammatory monocytes are involved in their pathology, and, moreover, in the development of tumors.|
