Ibuprofen

Catalog No. T1394   CAS 15687-27-1
Synonyms: Brufen, (±)-Ibuprofe, Motrin, Advil

Ibuprofen (Advil) is a propionic acid derivate and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antipyretic effects. Ibuprofen inhibits the activity of cyclo-oxygenase I and II, resulting in a decreased formation of precursors of prostaglandins and thromboxanes.

Description Ibuprofen (Advil) is a propionic acid derivate and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antipyretic effects. Ibuprofen inhibits the activity of cyclo-oxygenase I and II, resulting in a decreased formation of precursors of prostaglandins and thromboxanes.
Targets&IC50 COX-2:370 μM, COX-1:13 μM
In vitro In the adult female Sprague-Dawley rat model induced by the HRHF method, Ibuprofen treats arthritis and early cartilage degeneration by inhibiting serum C1 and 2C as well as collagen degradation and synthesis.
In vivo Within cells, Ibuprofen inhibits the cyclooxygenases COX-1 and COX-2, and the conversion of arachidonic acid into prostaglandin H2 (PGH2). In prostate tumor cells, Ibuprofen can suppress the activation of NF-κB and IKKα.
Kinase Assay Radiochemical enzyme assays for COX-1 and COX-2: 10 μL of purified COX-1 (0.7-0.8 μg) or COX-2 (3.0 units, 0.3μg) is activated with 50 μL of cofactor solution [l-epinephrine (1.3 mg/mL), reduced glutathione (0.3 mg/mL), and hematin (1.3 mg/mL) in oxygen-free Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0)]. The enzyme solution (60 μL) is added to Ibuprofen solutions or DMSO (20 μL) after [14C]arachidonic acid is added in 0.2 mL eight-strip test tubes and preincubated 10 minutes on ice. Samples are incubated for 15 minutes at 37 °C, after which the reaction is terminated by addition of 10 μL of 2 M HCl and 5 μL of carrier solution (PGE2 and PGF2α, 0.2 μg/mL of each in EtOH). The unmetabolized arachidonic acid is separated from the prostaglandin products by column chromatography and eluted with n-hexane-dioxane-glacial acetic acid (70:30:1). The prostaglandin products are then eluted with EtOAc-MeOH (85:15), and the samples are counted in a Packard scintillation spectrometer. IC50 values are obtained by linear regression analysis.
Cell Research Each cell line is incubated with Ibuprofen of various concentrations for 48 hours. Cell survival is estimated by the MTT assay, and cell death is determined by Hoechst staining used to distinguish between intact cell nuclei and fragmented nuclei undergoing cell death. Cells are lysed and analyzed by western blotting for detection of the p75NTR protein.(Only for Reference)

Molarity Calculator allows you to calculate the

  • Mass of a compound required to prepare a solution of known volume and concentration
  • Volume of solution required to dissolve a compound of known mass to a desired concentration
  • Concentration of a solution resulting from a known mass of compound in a specific volume
See Example

An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
Enter 197.13 into the Molecular Weight (MW) box
Enter 10 into the Concentration box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 10 into the Volume box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 19.713 mg appears in the Mass box

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution
The dilution calculator is a useful tool which allows you to calculate how to dilute a stock solution of known concentration. Enter C1, C2 & V2 to calculate V1.

See Example

An example of a dilution calculation using the Tocris dilution calculator
What volume of a given 10 mM stock solution is required to make 20ml of a 50 μM solution?
Using the equation C1V1 = C2V2, where C1=10 mM, C2=50 μM, V2=20 ml and V1 is the unknown:
Enter 10 into the Concentration (start) box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 50 into the Concentration (final) box and select the correct unit (micromolar)
Enter 20 into the Volume (final) box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 100 microliter (0.1 ml) appears in the Volume (start) box
