Rottlerin is a specific PKC inhibitor, with IC50 values for PKCδ of 3-6 μM, PKCα,β,γ of 30-42 μM, PKCε,η,ζ of 80-100 μM[1]. 

Rottlerin (20 μM, 2/6/24 hours) dramatically decreases the cyclin D-1 mRNA levels in a time-dependent manner and exhibits cell proliferation in HMVEC[2]. 

In Balb C nude mice, rottlerin (20 mg/kg, gavage 5 days per week, once daily, for 6 weeks) inhibits AsPC-1 pancreatic tumor growth with no toxicity. Rottlerin inhibits tumor cell proliferation, and induces apoptosis through activation of caspase-3 and cleavage of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP)[3].

Shipping ConditionEvaluation sample solution: ship with blue ice. All other available sizes: ship with RT, or blue ice upon request.
General tipsFor obtaining a higher solubility, please warm the tube at 37°C and shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. Stock solution can be stored below -20°C for several months.


Cell experiment [1,2]:

Cell lines

Rat (C6) and two human gliomas (T98G and U138MG), glial cells, Rat lung microvascular endothelial cells, Rat primary pulmonary artery endothelial cells

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is > 10 mM. 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

24 h


Rottlerin (24 h) decreased the growth of C6, T98G, and U138MG cells (IC50, 12 μM for C6 and >20 μM for T98G and Ui 38MG, respectively). Rottlerin (48 h) decreased the growth of C6, T98G, and Ui 38MG cells with the IC50 of 5, 7, and 9 μM, respectively. Rottlerin (5 μM) significantly reduced the number of S-phase cells in C6, T98G, and U138MG. In C6 cells, rottlerin treatment resulted in an accumulation of cytoplasmic vacuoles and packaging of cellular components within membranes. Rottlerin (5 μM) produced obvious DNA laddering in HL-60 human leukemia cells. Rottlerin dose-dependently increased basal endothelial monolayer permeability in rat LMVEC and PAEC. Rottlerin caused actomyosin filament and focal adhesion disruption.

Animal experiment [2]:

Animal models

Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats

Dosage form

Intraperitoneal injection, 50 mg/kg


A dose response in EBD extravasation had been observed in animals treated with varying concentrations of Rottlerin. Rottlerin promoted rat lung edem. Rottlerin caused pulmonary edema in anesthesized rats via disruption of endothelial barrier function independent of hydrostatic changes.

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.
