Increasing mitochondria's oxigen consumption without inhibiting ATP synthesis
Ppc-1, MitoUncoupler

Ppc-1 is a newly isolated molecule from Polysphondylium pseudo-candidum. It shows comparatively mild uncoupling activity in Mitochodria.

According to papers, following effects are reported in Ppc-1:

  • Ppc-1 stimulates oxygen consumption without inhibiting ATP synthesis in mitochondria, isolated from mouse liver. 1), 2)
  • Ppc-1 administrated mouse shows inhibition of weight gain, without affecting liver and kidney. 1), 2)
  • Cell proliferation is inhibited without inducing cell death, in Ppc-1 treated 3T3-L1 cells. 3)
Product Background
Ppc-1 is a novel small molecule derived from cellular slime mold Polysphondylium pseudo-candidum. It enhances oxygen consumption in a dose-dependent manner and acts as moderate mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation uncoupler without adverse effects on ATP production. In addition, Ppc-1 shows little cytotoxicity and enable us to use it in vivo.

  • Comparatively mild uncoupling activity.
  • Low effect on ATP synthesis or degradation.
  • Low active oxygen generation.
  • Low cytotoxicity.
  • Cell proliferation is inhibited by adding Ppc-1 to culture medium.
