DCVC (S-[(1E)-1, 2-dichloroethenyl]--L-cysteine) is a bioactive metabolite of trichloroethylene (TCE). DCVC inhibits pathogen-stimulated pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-1β, IL-8, and TNF-α release from tissue cultures.

How to use

In Vitro:

Extraplacental membranes are cultured for 4, 8, and 24h with the trichloroethylene (TCE) metabolite S-(1, 2-dichlorovinyl)-l-cysteine (DCVC) in the absence or presence of lipoteichoic acid (LTA) or lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to simulate infection. In addition, membranes were cocultured with DCVC and Group B Streptococcus (GBS). DCVC (5-50μM) significantly inhibited LTA-, LPS-, and GBS-stimulated cytokine release from tissue cultures as early as 4h. DCVC inhibits pathogen-stimulated cytokine (IL-1β, IL-8, and TNF-α) release in a concentration-dependent manner.
