    Imbricatolic acid from Juniperus communis L. prevents cell cycle progression in CaLu-6 cells.[Pubmed: 21567359]

    Imbricatolic acid was isolated from the methanolic extract of the fresh ripe berries of Juniperus communis (Cupressaceae) together with sixteen known compounds and a new dihydrobenzofuran lignan glycoside named juniperoside A. Their structures were determined by spectroscopic methods and by comparison with the spectral data reported in literature. Imbricatolic acid was evaluated for its ability to prevent cell cycle progression in p53-null CaLu-6 cells. This compound induces the upregulation of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors and their accumulation in the G1 phase of the cell cycle, as well as the degradation of cyclins A, D1, and E1. Furthermore, no significant Imbricatolic acid-induced apoptosis was observed.
    Therefore, this plant-derived compound may play a role in the control of cell cycle.

    Biotransformations of imbricatolic acid by Aspergillus niger and Rhizopus nigricans cultures.[Pubmed: 17873843]

    Microbial transformation of Imbricatolic acid (1) by Aspergillus niger afforded 1alpha-hydroxyImbricatolic acid (2), while transformation with Rhizopus nigricans yielded 15-hydroxy-8,17-epoxylabdan-19-oic acid (3). When the diterpene 1 was added to a Cunninghamella echinulata culture, the main products were the microbial metabolites mycophenolic acid (4) and its 3-hydroxy derivative 5. All the structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods. The cytotoxicity of these compounds towards human lung fibroblasts and AGS cells was assessed.
    While 4 and 5 showed low cytotoxicity, with IC50 values > 1000 microM against AGS cells and fibroblasts, 1alpha-hydroxyImbricatolic acid (2) presented moderate toxicity towards these targets, with IC50 values of 307 and 631 microM, respectively. The structure of 2 is presented for the first time.
    Imbricatolic acid Description
    Source: The barks of Pinus massoniana Lamb.
    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.

    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.

    Synthesis of novel imbricatolic acid analogues via insertion of N-substituted piperazine at C-15/C-19 positions, displaying glucose uptake stimulation in L6 skeletal muscle cells.[Pubmed: 22726926 ]

    A new class of N-substituted piperazine analogues of Imbricatolic acid have been designed and synthesized by using the appropriate synthetic routes in excellent yield. All synthesised compounds were screened for their in vitro glucose uptake stimulatory activity. Among them compounds 4b, 4e, 8b, and 8e triggered L6 skeletal muscle cells for glucose uptake at 54.73%, 40.79%, 40.90%, and 39.55% stimulation, respectively. Compound 4b has emerged as important lead compound showing potential antidiabetic activity.
    Illustration about their synthesis and in vitro glucose uptake activity is described.
