How to use

In Vitro:

Gigantol decreases the level of phosphorylated LRP6 and cytosolic β-catenin in HEK293 cells. In breast cancer MDA-MB-231 and MDA-MB-468 cells, treatment with gigantol reduces the level of phosphorylated LRP6[1]. Gigantol significantly inhibits the proliferation and induces apoptosis of the HepG2 cells. Gigantol at concentrations of 1, 40 and 150 µM markedly decreases the cell viability by 11.7, 30.0 and 56.4% at 24 h and 21.1, 66.8 and 85.5% at 48 h, respectively. The IC50 value is 9.30 µM.

In Vivo:

LDD and gigantol (25–100 mg/kg, p.o.) significantly increase the hot-plate latency in comparison to vehicle-treated mice and decreased carrageenaninduced inflammation in rats.
