|Solvent:||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.|

|Prosapogenin A induces apoptosis in human cancer cells in vitro via inhibition of the STAT3 signaling pathway and glycolysis.[Pubmed: 24179517]|
|In the present study, the effects of Prosapogenin A (PSA) from the traditional Chinese medicine, Veratrum, on apoptosis, the STAT3 signaling pathway and glycometabolism in cancer cells were investigated. The results indicated that Prosapogenin A induced growth inhibition and apoptosis in HeLa, HepG2 and MCF-7 cells. Prosapogenin A inhibited the STAT3 signaling pathway and modulated the expression of glycometabolism-related genes. The results indicate that the inhibition of the STAT3 signaling and glycometabolism pathways contributes to the Prosapogenin A-mediated apoptosis of HeLa, HepG2 and MCF-7 cells.|

|Prosapogenin A inhibits cell growth of MCF7 via downregulating STAT3 and glycometabolism-related gene.[Pubmed: 24358789]|
|This study is to investigate the inhibitory effect and mechanism of Prosapogenin A (PSA) on MCF7. MTT assay was performed to determine the inhibitory effect of Prosapogenin A on MCF7 cells. PI/Hoechst 33342 double staining was used to detect cell apoptosis. RT-PCR was used to test the mRNA levels of STAT3, GLUT1, HK and PFKL. Western blotting was performed to determine the expression of STAT3 and pSTAT3 protein in MCF7 cells. The results showed that Prosapogenin A could dose-dependently inhibit cell growth of MCF7 followed by IC50 of 9.65 micrmol x L(-1) and promote cell apoptosis of MCF7. Reduced mRNA levels of STAT3, HK and PFKL were observed in MCF7 cells treated with 5 micromol x L(-1) of Prosapogenin A. Prosapogenin A also decreased the level of pSTAT3 protein. STAT3 siRNA caused decrease of mRNA of GLUT1, HK and PFKL which indicated STAT3 could regulate the expressions of GLUT1, HK and PFKL. The results suggested that Prosapogenin A could inhibit cell growth and promote cell apoptosis of MCF7 via inhibition of STAT3 and glycometabolism-related gene.|
