Muscone is the main active monomer of traditional Chinese medicine musk. Muscone inhibits NF-κB and NLRP3 inflammasome activation. Muscone remarkably decreases the levels of inflammatory cytokines (IL-1β, TNF-α and IL-6), and ultimately improves cardiac function and survival rate.

How to use

In Vitro:

Muscone significantly downregulates the levels of LPS-induced inflammatory cytokines and inhibits NF-κB and NLRP3 inflammasome activation in Bone marrow-derived macrophages (BMDMs). Muscone serves as a promising and effective drug for post-myocardial infarction (MI) treatment.
