Amphotericin B

Related Biological Data

Amphotericin B

Protocol

Cell experiment [1]:

Cell lines

peritoneal macrophages; HEK293 cells expressing TLR2 and CD14

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is >46.2mg/mL. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37℃ for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. Stock solution can be stored below -20℃ for several months.

Reacting condition

1, 2, and 4 μg/ml

Applications

In peritoneal macrophages from CD14 knockout mice (C57BL/6 CD14–/–) and CD14 wild-type (C57BL/6 CD14+/+) mice, Amphotericin B failed to induce the production of TNF-α in macrophages from CD14–/– mice. HEK293 cells expressing TLR2 and CD14 responded more strongly to Amphotericin B (1, 2, and 4 μg/ml).

Animal experiment [2]:

Animal models

hamster scrapie model

Dosage form

2.5 mg/kg; p.i. injection from 0 to 7 days

Application

In hamsters infected intracerebrally with scrapie, Amphotericin B significantly prolonged the survival time by 14.7 days.

Other notes

Please test the solubility of all compounds indoor, and the actual solubility may slightly differ with the theoretical value. This is caused by an experimental system error and it is normal.

Background

Amphotericin B, a polyene antifungal antibiotic, has been produced from a strain of Streptomyces nodosus with an IC50 of 0.028–0.290 μg/ml.

In vitro: Amphotericin B was the most effective drug for treating many life-threatening fungal infections. In cells expressing TLR2 and CD14, amphotericin B induced signal transduction and inflammatory cytokine release. In primary murine macrophages and human cell lines expressing TLR2, CD14, and the adapter protein MyD88, amphotericin induced NF-κB-dependent reporter activity and cytokine release, whereas cells deficient in any of these failed to respond. Cells with TLR4 mutation were less responsive to amphotericin B stimulation than cells expressing normal TLR4 [1]. Amphotericin B could interact with cholesterol, the major sterol of mammal membranes, thus limiting the usefulness of Amphotericin B due to its relatively high toxicity [2]. Low AmB concentrations (≤ 0.1 μM) induced a polarization potential in KCl-loaded liposomes suspended in an iso-osmotic sucrose solution, indicating K+ leakage. AmB (> 0.1 μM) allowed cations and anions movements. LPs suspended in an iso-osmotic NaCl solution and exposed to AmB (0.05 μM) exhibited a nearly total collapse of the negative membrane potential, indicated that Na+ entered into the cells [3].

In vivo: Amphotericin B prolonged the incubation time and decreased PrPSc accumulation in the hamster scrapie model. Amphotericin B markedly resulted in reduction of PrPSc levels in mice with transmissible subacute spongiform encephalopathies (TSSE) [4].
