|Biological Activity or Inhibitors:|| 1. Neochamaejasmin A can inhibit cellular (3)H-thymidine incorporation (IC 50 12.5 microg/mL) and subsequent proliferation of human prostate cancer LNCaP cells, it blocks cell cycle progression at the G1 phase by activating the p21 protein and ultimately promoting the Fas-caspase 8-caspase 3 apoptotic machinery.
|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.|

|Involvement of p21 and FasL in induction of cell cycle arrest and apoptosis by neochamaejasmin A in human prostate LNCaP cancer cells.[Pubmed: 18380477 ]|
|Neochamaejasmine A ( 1), a biflavonoid isolated from the roots of a traditional Chinese medicine, Stellera chamaejasme L., was shown to inhibit cellular (3)H-thymidine incorporation (IC 50 12.5 microg/mL) and subsequent proliferation of human prostate cancer LNCaP cells. Treatment of LNCaP cells with low doses of 1 (< or =6.25 microg/mL) suppressed DNA-binding activities of the transcription factors NFkappaB and AP-1 to the promoter of cyclin D and also inhibited expression of the cell cycle regulatory proteins cyclin D, proliferating cell nuclear antigen, and nucleolin, thus arresting cells in G 1 phase of the cell cycle. A lengthy exposure with higher doses of 1 (> or =12.5 microg/mL) revealed the production of reactive oxygen species, dissipation of the mitochondrial membrane potential, up-regulation of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p21, and induction of cell apoptosis. An aggregation of Fas-procaspase 8-procaspase 3 and p21-procaspase 3 proteins by coimmunoprecipitation, immunoblotting analysis, and MALDI-mass spectrometry indicated the involvement of Fas and p21 in 1-mediated cytotoxicity, and pretreatment of cells with antisense FasL oligonucleotides partially abolished apoptosis. Thus, 1 blocked cell cycle progression at the G 1 phase by activating the p21 protein and ultimately promoting the Fas-caspase 8-caspase 3 apoptotic machinery.|
