How to use

In Vitro:

Calpeptin (0-100 nM, 24 hours) treatment suppresses the proliferation of both WI38 VA13 and IMR90 cells in a dose-dependent manner. Calpeptin (1000 pg/ml, 24 hours) inhibits IL-6-induced cell proliferation of lung fibroblasts.

In Vivo:

Calpeptin with Bleo (0.04 mg/mouse, i.p., 3 times weekly, 28 days) administration significantly inhibits the collagen deposition and increases of calpain activity in the NSC-125066 treated mouse lung tissues.
