Vinpocetine (Ethyl apovincaminate) is a derivative of the alkaloid Vincamine that blocks voltage-gated Na+ channels. The IC50 value of Vinpocetine on direct IKK inhibition in the cell-free system is 17.17 μM. Vinpocetine is a phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitor and inhibits NF-κB-dependent inflammatory responses by directly targeting IκB kinase complex (IKK), and has been widely used for the treatment of cerebrovascular disorders[1][2][3].

Vinpocetine (5-50 μM; 7 hours; VSMCs, HUVECs, A549 cells and RAW264.7 cells) potently inhibits TNF-α-induced NF-κB-dependent transcriptional activity in a dose-dependent manner with an approximate IC50 value of 25 μM. Vinpocetine do not have a significant effect on cell viability[1].Vinpocetine (50 μM; 7 hours; VSMCs, HUVECs, A549 cells and RAW264.7 cells) potently inhibits TNF-α-induced up-regulation of TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-8, MCP-1, VCAM-1, ICAM-1and MIP-2 transcripts in several cell types[1].

Vinpocetine (2.5-10 mg/kg; intraperitoneal injection; C57BL/6 mice) potently inhibits TNF-α- or LPS-induced up-regulation of proinflammatory mediators, including TNF-α, IL-1β, and MIP-2, and decreases interstitial infiltration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes in a mouse model of TNF-α- or LPS-induced lung inflammation[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.
3. All of the above co-solvents are available for purchase on the GlpBio website.
