How to use

In Vitro:

The natural racemic Gossypol has two enantiomers, namely the (-)-Gossypol and (S)-Gossypol ((+)-Gossypol) enantiomers. (+)-Gossypol and (-)-Gossypol binds to Bcl-2 or Bcl-xL with similar binding affinities. (-)-Gossypol is more potent than (+)-Gossypol in inhibition of cell growth and induction of apoptosis. The racemic form and each of the enantiomers of Gossypol are tested against UM-SCC-6 and UM-SCC-14A in 6-day MTT assays. (-)-Gossypol exhibits greater growth inhibition relative to (±)-Gossypol than (+)-Gossypol in both cell lines tested (P<0.001). An intermediate growth inhibitory effect is observed with (±)-Gossypol but this effect is only observed at the higher dose of Gossypol (10 μM, P<0.0001).
