Product Introduction

Foscarnet sodium (Phosphonoformate) is an antiviral agent used in the treatment of cytomegalovirus retinitis. Foscarnet also shows activity against human herpesviruses and HIV.
In vitro
Foscarnet Sodium is able to penetrate into cells and inhibit viral replication by inhibiting viral DNA synthesis. Foscarnet Sodium (300 μM) displays a more than 95% inhibition on HTLV-III reverse transcriptase activity in H9 cells infected with HTLV-III. [1] Foscarnet Sodium has a low cellular toxicity, but shows an inhibition of cell proliferation at high concentrations, which is reversed after drug removal. Incubation 0.5-1 mM Foscarnet Sodium with HeLa cells or primary human lung fibroblast for 24-48 hr inhibited 50% DNA synthesis and/or cell proliferation. [1] Foscarnet Sodium is able to bind with the heparin-binding domain of FGF2 and inhibits FGF2 induced cell proliferation. Foscarnet Sodium (25 μM) treating HUVEC cells for 48 hr reduced FGF2-induced cellular proliferation by 20%. Foscarnet Sodium (0.5-1 mM) reduced the 24h proliferation rate of CAL-62 cell, a Human thyroid anaplastic carcinoma cell line which expresses FGF2, to nearly 80%. [2]
In vivo
Foscarnet Sodium display an efficient therapy effect on animal with virus diseases, such as cutaneous infection, herpes keratitis, genital infection, or systemic and interacerebral infection. For example, Foscarnet Sodium (100 mM) applied at initiated 48 h post inoculation with twice daily applications of 30 μL for 4 days, displays a more than 70% reduction in cumulative score after inoculation with HSV-1 strain C42. Foscarnet Sodium (20 mg/kg) given as an aerosol to mice infected with murine CMV caused a reduction of 60% in lung titers. [1]
Kinase Assay
Reverse transcriptase assays: Reverse transcriptase assays are carried out in a reaction mixture (50 μL) containing 50 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.5), 5 mM DTT, 100 mM potassium chloride, 0.01% Triton X-100 or NP40, 10 μg/ml (dT)15.(A)n as template primer and [3H] deoxythymidine triphospahate. The reaction mixture is incubated for 1 hr at 37 ℃ and stopped by the addition of 50 μg of yeast tRNA and 2 mL of 10% solution of trichloroacetic acid containing 1 mM sodium pyrophosphate. The samples are filtered on filters (0.45 μm), washed first with 5% TCA solution for 5 times and then with 2 ml of 70% ethanol. The filters are dried, scintillation fluid is added and the radioactivity counted in a counter.
Cell Research
CAL-62 cells are placed on 96 well plates at 8×103 cells/well in 100 μL DMEM for 24 h. Then medium is replaced by fresh DMEM with or without foscarnet. After 48 h of incubation, 20 μL of CellTiter 96AQ solution is added to the cells and incubated for 2-4 h. The quantity of formazan product as measured by the absorbance at 492 nm.(Only for Reference)

In Vivo Formulation Calculator (Clear solution)

Please enter your animal experiment information in the following box and click Calculate to obtain the mother liquor preparation method and in vivo formula preparation method:
TargetMol | Animal experimentsFor example, your dosage is 10 mg/kg Each animal weighs 20 g, and the dosage volume is 100 μL . TargetMol | Animal experiments A total of 10 animals were administered, and the formula you used is 5% TargetMol | reagent DMSO+30% PEG300+5% Tween 80+60% ddH2O. So your working solution concentration is 2 mg/mL。
Mother liquor preparation method: 2 mg of drug dissolved in 50 μL DMSOTargetMol | reagent (mother liquor concentration of 40 mg/mL), if you need to configure a concentration that exceeds the solubility of the product, please contact us first.
Preparation method for in vivo formula: Take 50 μL DMSOTargetMol | reagent main solution, add 300 μLPEG300TargetMol | reagent mix well and clarify, then add 50 more μL Tween 80, mix well and clarify, then add 600 more μLddH2OTargetMol | reagent mix well and clarify
