Galegine hydrochloride, a guanidine derivative, contributes to weight loss in mice. Guanidine hydrochloride is the compound derived from G. officinalis, which gave rise to the biguanides, metformin and phenformin. Galegine hydrochloride activates AMPK in 3T3-L1 adipocytes and L6 myotubes, as well as in the H4IIE rat hepatoma and HEK293 human kidney cell lines. Galegine hydrochloride has antibacterial activity, with minimum inhibitory concentration of 4 mg/L against Staphylococcus aureus strains[1][2].

Pre-treatment with Galegine hydrochloride (10 µM-3 mM; 5 h) produces a concentration-dependent stimulation of insulin-independent glucose uptake by 3T3-L1 adipocytes without any effect on cell viability. Incubation with Galegine hydrochloride (1 µM-1 mM, 5 h) produces a concentration-dependent stimulation of glucose uptake into L6 myotubes, again without any effect on cell viability[1]. Galegine hydrochloride (0.3-300 µM; 24 hours) produced a slight reduction in basal glycerol release and a more marked reduction in isoprenaline-stimulated glycerol release from 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Incubation of H4IIE rat hepatoma cells with Galegine hydrochloride (10 or 300 µM) for up to 6 hours produces a time-dependent activation of AMPK measured in cell lysates, with maximal activation at 360 min and twofold activation still evident at 24 hous in the presence of 300 µM Galegine hydrochloride. The effect of 300 µM Galegine hydrochloride is markedly greater than that of 10 µM. Incubation with Galegine hydrochloride for 1 hour produces a concentration-dependent activation of AMPK in both 3T3L-1 adipocytes and L-6 myotubes. Galegine hydrochloride also produces a concentration-dependent activation of the enzyme in a human kidney cell line (HEK293)[1].

Galegine hydrochloride (63 mg/kg; feed; daily for 11 days) produces a significant reduction in body weight[1].

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
