Description

General description

Phloretin a polar dye belongs to the class of dihydrochalcones.

Major polyphenol found in apple; aglycone of phloridzin.

Application

Phloretin has been used:
• to study its effect on the 2-[N-(7-Nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazol-4-yl)amino]-2-deoxy-d-glucose (2-NBDG) and 2-[N-(7-Nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazol-4-yl)amino]-2-deoxy-l-glucose (2-NBDLG) uptake
• to incubate microvesicles in order to inhibit GLUT1 (glucose transporter 1)-mediated transport in radioactive ligand up-take assay
• as a component of KRH buffer to stop glucose uptake by trophoblast cells in vitro

Packaging

25, 100, 250 mg in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Phloretin is known to decrease interfacial dipole potential of lipid bilayer. Phloretin possess antitumor action by preventing protein kinase C (PKC) activity and stimulating programmed cell death. It is found to inhibit the transport functions of GLUTs (glucose transporter) and aquaporins.

Reacts with vic-dicarbonyl compounds such as glyoxal and methylglyoxal, preventing cytotoxic conjugation with biological macromolecules.
