is also contained in poplar bud secretions.
Antioxidant, antimitogenic, anticarcinogenic, anti-inflammatory and antiviral. Specifically inhibits NF- κ B activation and inhibits the growth of transformed cells. Also suppresses lipid peroxidation and inhibits ornithine decarboxylase, protein tyrosine kinase and lipoxygenase activities.
antineoplastic, antiinflammatory, immunomodulator, NFkB blocker
Cytotoxic agent against cancer cell lines. Inhibitor of ornithine decarboxylase and protein tyrosine kinase. Found to be a specific inhibitor of the nuclear transcription factor, NF-kB. It has also
been shown to significantly suppress the lipoxygenase pathway of arachidonic acid metabolism during inflammation.
