Descripción general

Methyl-β-cyclodextrin is a small cyclic heptasaccharide.


Methyl-β-cyclodextrin has been used as a cholesterol chelator:
  • to study its effects on mice cardiomyocytes
  • to study its effects on human corneal stromal fibroblasts
  • to study its effects on the junctophilin-2 (JPH2) pool

Acciones bioquímicas o fisiológicas

Methyl-β-cyclodextrin participates in increasing the permeability of cells. It also plays a role in depolymerizing the actin cytoskeleton in cells. Methyl-β-cyclodextrin is involved in attracting cholesterol from the plasma. It participates in activating extracellular receptor kinase in certain cells.

Low serum cholesterol levels are associated with cardiac arrhythmias and poor prognosis in patients with chronic heart failure. However, the underlying mechanisms by which decreases in cholesterol content lead to cardiac dysfunction remain unclear. Multiple studies have implicated damage to

Methyl-beta-cyclodextrin and filipin are cholesterol-binding reagents often used interchangeably to investigate functional requirements for lipid rafts in receptor-mediated signal transduction. Recently, contradictory results were reported by two groups using these reagents in different model systems to investigate the role of

Methyl-β-cyclodextrin (MCD), an established pharmacological excipient, depolymerizes the actin cytoskeleton. In this work, we investigated the effect of MCD-mediated actin depolymerization on various cellular phenotypes including traction force, cell stiffness, focal adhesions, and intracellular drug accumulation. In addition to a

Cholesterol homoeostasis is critical for cell viability and proliferation. The SREBP (sterol regulatory element-binding protein) pathway is crucial for the maintenance of cholesterol homoeostasis. This pathway is controlled by cholesterol and cholesterol-derived oxysterols. J774 cells cannot convert desmosterol into cholesterol
