Biological Activity for (-)-Xestospongin C
(-)-Xestospongin C is a reported inhibitor of IP3-dependent Ca2+ release. Inhibits bradykinin-induced Ca2+ release in PC12 cells and attenuates PHP-induced IL-2 production in Jurkat T cells. Exhibits no effect on ryanodine receptor-mediated Ca2+ release in PC12 cells and shows no apparent interaction with the IP3 binding site. Other subsequent reports show (-)-Xestospongin C to be ineffective as an antagonist of IP3-evoked Ca2+ release in IP3 recepto- expressing DT40 cells. Cell permeable.
NOTE: (-)-Xestospongin C is typically used at a final concentration ranging from 0.5 to 10 μM. It is recommended to prepare stock solutions (10x to 100x) in DMSO or ethanol.

We used (-)-Xestospongin C (XeC) to block calcium release from endoplasmic reticulum via IP3 channels in presynaptic neurons. As a result, LPI, agonist of GPR55 receptor, failed to induce an increase of neurotransmitter release, since this process is calcium-dependent. As a sequence, after application of XeC there was no augmentation of the amplitude of evoked post-synaptic response in postsynaptic neuron: see image.
