|Biological Activity or Inhibitors:||1. Poricoic acid B shows potent inhibitory effects on Epstein-Barr virus early antigen (EBV-EA) activation induced by the tumor promoter 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA).
2. Poricoic acid B shows inhibitory activity against TPA-induced ear inflammatory oedema.
|Solvent:||DMSO, Pyridine, Methanol, Ethanol, 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.|

|Inhibition of tumor-promoting effects by poricoic acids G and H and other lanostane-type triterpenes and cytotoxic activity of poricoic acids A and G from Poria cocos.[Pubmed: 11975480]|
|The structures of two novel 3,4-seco-lanostane-type triterpenes isolated from the sclerotium of Poria cocos were established to be 16alpha-hydroxy-3,4-seco-lanosta-4(28),8,24-triene-3,21-dioic acid (1; poricoic acid G) and 16alpha-hydroxy-3,4-seco-24-methyllanosta-4(28),8,24(24(1))-triene-3,21-dioic acid (2; poricoic acid H) on the basis of spectroscopic methods. These two, and eight other known compounds isolated from the sclerotium, Poricoic acid B (3), poricoic acid A (4), tumulosic acid (5), dehydrotumulosic acid (6), 3-epidehydrotumulosic acid (7), polyporenic acid C (8), 25-hydroxy-3-epidehydrotumulosic acid (9), and dehydroabietic acid methyl ester (10), showed potent inhibitory effects on Epstein-Barr virus early antigen (EBV-EA) activation induced by the tumor promoter 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA). Evaluation of the cytotoxicity of compounds 1 and 4 against human cancer cell lines revealed that 1 was significantly cytotoxic to leukemia HL-60 cells [GI(50) (concentration that yields 50% growth) value 39.3 nM], although it showed only moderate cytotoxicity to the other cells. Compound 4 exhibited moderate cytotoxicity to all of the cancer cell lines tested.|
|Inhibitory Effect of Poria cocos on 12-O-Tetradecanoylphorbol-13Acetate‐Induced Ear Oedema and Tumour Promotion in Mouse Skin[Reference: WebLink]|
|The methanol extract from the sclerotium of Poria cocos was found to inhibit 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA)-induced tumour promotion in two-stage carcinogenesis in mouse skin. From the active fraction of the extract, eight lanostane-type triterpene acids and four 3,4-secolanostane-type triterpene acids were isolated. The isolated compounds showed inhibitory activity against TPA-induced ear inflammatory oedema. The 50% inhibitory dose of pachymic acid, 3-O-acetyl-16α-hydroxytrametenolic acid, dehydropachymic acid, dehydroeburiconic acid, 3β-hydroxylanosta-7,9(11),24-trien-21-oic acid, poricoic acid A and Poricoic acid B for TPA-induced inflammation was 17–44 μg/ear, at a grade corresponding to that of hydrocortisone.|
