Cycloastragenol CAS No. 78574-94-4

Short Description:

Cycloastragalol, a triterpenoid saponin, is mainly obtained by hydrolysis of astragaloside IV. cycloastragalol is the only telomerase activator found today. It can delay telomere shortening by increasing telomerase. Cycloastragalol is considered to have anti-aging effect

Bioactivity of cycloastragenol

Cycloastragalol is a triterpene saponin compound, which is Astragalus membranaceus (Fisch.) The hydrolysate of the active ingredient in Bunge). Astramembrangenin has oral safety and has a wide range of pharmacological effects, including telomerase activation, telomere prolongation, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Astramembrangenin has anti-aging properties. CAG stimulates telomerase activity in human newborn keratinocytes and rat nerve cells and induces CREB activation. Astramembrangenin may have a new therapeutic effect in depression

In Vitro Study:
Compared with the carrier control in HEK culture, star membrane protein (0-10 μ M; 3-6 days) increased cell growth [1]. Astramembrangenin(0.3 μ M; 5-90 minutes) induced CREB phosphorylation in primary cortical neurons, and the expression of total CREB in both cell types was not affected by CAG [1]. Star membrane protein (3) μ M; 6-48 hours) can promote in vivo signal transduction in neurons, increase TERT mRNA expression, and show increased bcl 2 mRNA expression [1]. Cell viability assay [1] cell line: HEK cell concentration: 1 μ M,3 μ M,10 μ M culture time: 3-6 days results: cell growth doubled at 6 days. Western blot analysis [1] cell line: neuron cell concentration: 0.3 μ M culture time: 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 90 minutes. Results: CAG induced CREB activation in neurons. RT-PCR [1] cell line: neuron cell concentration: 3 μ M culture time: 6-48 hours results: the expression of TERT and Bcl 2 mRNA increased.
