About colchicine

Colchicine, an alkaloid, was originally extracted from colchicine in the Liliaceae plant. Its IUPAC name is N-[(7S)-1,2,3,10-Tetramethoxy-9-oxo-5,6,7,9-tetrahydrobenzo[a]heptalen-7-yl] acetamide.

The chemical formula of colchicine is C22H25NO6, and the CAS number is 64-86-8.

Colchicine can inhibit mitosis, destroy the spindle, and make the chromosomes stagnate in the metaphase. Therefore, it is widely used in cytology, genetics research and plant breeding.

Colchicine can inhibit the growth of cancer cells. It is used clinically to treat cancer, gout and other diseases.

MS-based technical means can realize the qualitative and quantitative analysis of colchicine.

Sample requirements

Sample demand
Fresh plant / animal tissue > 200 mg
Number of cells or bacteria > 107, supernatant > 2 ml
Animal body fluid samples > 200 µl.
For other sample types, please consult technical support or sales.
Sample mixed and repeat
In order to ensure the accuracy of the samples and reduce systematic errors during sampling, it is necessary to select more than 3 materials with the same condition for each sample.
※ The same condition refers to the same period, basically the same phenotype, and the same part.
It is recommended that prepare more than 6 biological replicates.
Storage and transportation
Quick-frozen preservation with liquid nitrogen can minimize the leakage time of plant samples at room temperature, and store it at -80℃.
Dry ice transportation (about 3~4kg dry ice is consumed every day, please use sufficient dry ice for transportation).
