Berberine inhibited β-catenin transcriptional activity and attenuated anchorage-independent growth. As a result of berberine treatment, cellular levels of active β-catenin were reduced concomitant with an increase in the expression of E-cadherin.

How to use

In Vitro:

Berberine chloride hydrate ( Natural Yellow 18 chloride hydrate; 1.25-160 μM; 72 hours) has potential inhibitory effects on the proliferation of four colorectal carcinoma cell lines LoVo, HCT116, SW480, and HT-29. Berberine chloride hydrate (1.25-160 μM; 24-72 hours) induces a time- and dose-dependent inhibition of LoVo cell growth. LoVo cells are exposure to Berberine chloride hydrate (10-80 μM) for 24 h. Cell cycle analysis of 40 μM Berberine-treated LoVo cells by flow cytometry shows accumulation of cells in the G2/M phase. Berberine chloride hydrate (10-80 μM) suppresses cyclin B1, cdc2 and cdc25c protein expression after 24 h, especially at the dose of 80.0 μM.

In Vivo:

Berberine chloride hydrate (Natural Yellow 18 chloride hydrate; 10, 30, or 50 mg/kg/day; gastrointestinal gavage; for 10 consecutive days) inhibits the growth of human colorectal adenocarcinoma in vivo. Berberine chloride hydrate at doses of 30 and 50 mg/kg/day taken by gastrointestinal gavage shows inhibitory rates of 33.1% and 45.3% on the human colorectal adenocarcinoma xenograft growth in nude mice.
