Description

Product Description

IBMX has been shown to be a potent, non-specific inhibitor of adenosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate phosphodiesterase (cAMP PDE)4, significantly more effective than theophylline. Also inhibits cGMP phosphodiesterases. IBMX inhibits cyclic nucleotide PDE with subsequent inhibition of cyclic nucleotide hydrolysis, resulting in accumulation of cyclic AMP and guanosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate.

Application Notes

IBMX helps in inhibition of phenylephrine-induced release of 5-hydroxytryptamine from neuroendocrine epithelial cells of the airway mucosa (IC50 = 1.3 uM). Also inhibits ion channels in the neuromuscular junction, GH3 cells, and vascular smooth muscle cells. Inhibits the growth of carcinoma cells both in vivo and in vitro in mice.

Biochemical Physiological Actions Non-specific inhibitor of cAMP and cGMP phosphodiesterases. The increase in cAMP level as a result of phosphodiesterase inhibition by IBMX activates PKA leading to decreased proliferation, increased differentiation, and induction of apoptosis. IBMX inhibits phenylephrine-induced release of 5-hydroxytryptamine from neuroendocrine epithelial cells of the airway mucosa (IC50: 1.3 µM). Also serves as an adenosine receptor antagonist. Shown to inhibit ion channels in the neuromuscular junction, GH3 cells, and vascular smooth muscle cells. Induces calcium release from intracellular stores in sensory neurons.
