    Description: Gelsevirine has anxiolytic activity, may be via the agonist action of glycine receptor in the brain. Gelsevirine can significantly inhibit the proliferation of human carcinoma cell line SW480 and MGC80-3 in a dose-dependent manner, the 50% inhibiting concentration(IC50)of gelsevirine on SW480 cells and MGC80-3 cells are 1.41±0.06 mM and 1.22±0.11 mM respectively.

    Cytotoxic effects of alkaloidal compounds from Gelsemium elegans Benth on the tumor cells of digestive system in vitro[Reference: WebLink]
    To investigate the antitumor activity of alkaloid compounds from Gelsemium elegans Benth by cytotoxicity assay on digestive system tumor cells(SW480,MGC80-3,TE-11,HepG2)and analyse their structure-activity relationship.
    Four alkaloid compounds were assessed for cytotoxic activity using the microculture 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide(MTT)assay for cellular viability. The results showed that Koumine,Gelsemine,Gelsenicine and Gelsevirine could significantly inhibite the proliferation of human carcinoma cell line SW480 and MGC80-3 in a dose-dependent manner.The 50% inhibiting concentration(IC50)of Koumine,Gelsemine,Gelsenicine and Gelsevirine on SW480 cells were 0.45±0.10,0.76±0.28,0.52±0.22 and 1.41±0.06 mmol·L-1 respectively,and were 0.82±0.19,1.20±0.33,1.14±0.23 and1.22±0.11 mmol·L-1 respectively on MGC80-3 cells.Koumine,Gelsemine and Gelsenicine also could inhibite the proliferation of TE-11 and HepG2 cells in a dose-dependent manner.IC50 of Koumine,Gelsemine and Gelsenicine on TE-11 cells were 0.74±0.05,1.94±0.30 and 1.73±0.35 mmol·L-1 respectively,and were 1.26±0.32,1.82±0.35 and 1.79±0.54 mmol·L-1 respectively on HepG2 cells.
    The alkaloid compounds from Gelsemium elegans Benth had obvious antitumor activity on digestive system tumor cells in vitro.Moreover there is a close relationship between their structure and effect.

    The active alkaloids of Gelsemium elegans Benth. are potent anxiolytics.[Pubmed: 23052566]
    An increasing number of herbal products has been introduced to treat anxiety and depression. Gelsemium elegans Benth (G. elegans) is a well-known herbal plant in Asia. Four major alkaloids (gelsemine, koumine, Gelsevirine, and gelsenicine) have been isolated from G. elegans.
    Gelsemine, koumine, and Gelsevirine, but not gelsenicine, exhibited potent anxiolytic effects in the two anxiety models. None of the four G. elegans alkaloids exerted antidepressant effects in the two depression models. None of G. elegans alkaloids impaired spontaneous motor activities. The intracerebroventricular administration of strychnine significantly antagonized the anxiolytic effects of gelsemine, koumine, and Gelsevirine administrated subcutaneously.
    Gelsemine, koumine, and Gelsevirine could be developed as the treatment of anxiety-related disorders in human patients. Their anxiolytic mechanism may be involved in the agonist action of glycine receptor in the brain.
    Gelsevirine Description
    Source: The herbs of Gelsemium elegans
    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.

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.

    Need more advice on solubility, usage and handling? Please email to: service@chemfaces.com

    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.
