Product Introduction

Mifepristone (C-1073) is a Progestin Antagonist. The mechanism of action of mifepristone is as a Progestational Hormone Receptor Antagonist.
Kinase Assay
Glucocorticoid receptor (GR) antagonist activity, Progesterone receptor (PR) antagonist activity: T47D alkaline phosphatase assay: T47D human breast cancer cells are plated in 96-well tissue culture plates at 104 cells per well in assay medium [RPMI medium without phenol red containing 5% (v/v) charcoal-treated FBS and 1% (v/v) penicillin–streptomycin]. Two days later, the medium is decanted and Mifepristone or control is added at a final concentration of 0.1% (v/v) dimethylsulfoxide in fresh assay medium. Twenty-four hours later, an alkaline phosphatase assay is performed using a SEAP kit. The medium is decanted and the cells are fixed for 30 minutes at room temperature with 5% (v/v) formalin. The cells are washed once at room temperature with Hanks' buffered saline solution. Equal volumes (0.05 mL) of dilution buffer, assay buffer, and 1:20 substrate/enhancer mixture are then added. After 1-hour incubation in the dark at room temperature, the lysate is transferred to a white 96-well plate and luminescence is read using a LuminoSkan Ascen. A549 reporter assay: A549 human lung carcinoma cells are washed with OPTI-MEM I. The medium is removed and lipid–DNA complex solution (1.5 μg/mL of GRE-luciferase reporter DNA in 8.5 mL OPTI-MEM I plus 6 μL/mL DMRIE-C reagent in 8.5 mL OPTI-MEM I, combined, mixed and incubated at room temperature for 40 minutes) is overlayed onto the cells in a T160 flask. The cells are incubated for 16 hours at 37 °C in a CO2 incubator. The DNA-containing medium is removed and 30 mL of growth medium containing 5% (v/v) charcoal-treated fetal bovine serum is added. After 5-6 hours, the cells are seeded in 96-well plates and incubated overnight at 37 °C. Mifepristone is then added to each well followed by dexamethasone as a corticoid challenge. The cells are incubated for 24 hours. Luciferase assay buffer is added to each well and the cells are incubated for 30 minutes at room temperature.Luciferase activity is measured in a DYNEX Microlite plate on a TopCount.
Cell Research
Cell growth is evaluated in various ovarian cancer cell lines that are subjected to dose-response or time course treatments. Media containing each of the doses of fresh steroids is replaced every 24 hours. Control groups of cells are treated with vehicle ethanol at a final concentration of less than 0.05%. Number of viable cells is evaluated by trypsinization and counting in a hemocytometer chamber using trypan blue dye exclusion. Experiments are conducted in media without phenol red and supplemented with charcoal extracted fetal bovine serum, or media containing unextracted serum and having phenol red. Similar results are obtained with both media preparations; therefore, after performing the growth curves, all subsequent experiments are conducted using media with unextracted serum and in the presence of phenol red. When indicated, the proliferation IC50s are calculated using software designed to study drug interaction. (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:
For example, your dosage is 10 mg/kg,each TargetMol | Animal experiments animal weighs 20 g, and the dosage volume is 100 μL. A total of TargetMol | Animal experiments 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 μLDMSOTargetMol | 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 μLDMSOTargetMol | reagent main solution, add 300 μLPEG300TargetMol | reagent mix well and clarify, then add 50 more μLTween 80, mix well and clarify, then add 600 more μLddH2OTargetMol | reagent mix well and clarify.
