Anatabine is a minor tobacco alkaloid with a chemical structural similarity to nicotine. Anatabine is produced in plants of the Solanacea family including tobacco, green tomatoes, peppers and eggplants [1]. Anatabine is an Aβ inhibitor [1]. (R,S)-Anatabine (tartrate) is preferable to (R,S)-Anatabine for certain applications and formulations.

Aβ peptides play a dominant role in the development of Alzheimer's disease. Natural soluble Aβ oligomers and more specifically Aβ dimers isolated from Alzheimer's disease brains have been involved in inducing tau hyperphosphorylation and neuritic degeneration, which results in the accumulation of Aβ oligomers to the neurofibrillary degeneration observed in Alzheimer's disease (AD) [1].

In vitro: Anatabine dose-dependently lowered Aβ1-40 and Aβ1-42 levels and reduced sAPPβ production without any effects on sAPPα levels. Anatabine lowered Aβ production by mainly impacting the β-cleavage of APP. Anatabine lowered NFκB activation. Anatabine inhibited BACE-1 transcription and reduced BACE-1 protein levels in human neuronal like SHSY-5Y cells. (R,S)-Anatabine also dose dependently inhibits NF-κB activation [1].

In vivo: In a transgenic mouse model with AD, treatment with anatabine for 4 days remarkably lowered brain soluble Aβ1-40 and Aβ1-42 levels [1].

Working concentration: mg/ml;

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.
