Caffeic Acid Phenethyl Ester: Consequences of Its Hydrophobicity in the Oxidative Functions and Cytokine Release by Leukocytes
(Evidence-based Complementary And Alternative Medicine, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
Numerous anti-inflammatory properties have been attributed to caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE), an active component of propolis. NADPH oxidases are multienzymatic complexes involved in many inflammatory diseases. Here, ...
Alkaloids extracted from Pterogyne nitens induce apoptosis in malignant breast cell line
(Tumor Biology, 2010-10-01) [Artigo]
In the present study, two alkaloids isolated from Pterogyne nitens, a plant native to Brazil, have been shown to induce apoptosis in human breast cancer cells. These compounds, pterogynine (PGN) and pterogynidine (PGD), ...
Ethyl Ferulate, a Component with Anti-Inflammatory Properties for Emulsion-Based Creams
(Molecules, 2014-06-01) [Artigo]
Ethyl ferulate (FAEE) has been widely studied due to its beneficial heath properties and, when incorporated in creams, shows a high sun protection capacity. Here we aimed to compare FAEE and its precursor, ferulic acid ...
Apocynin: Chemical and biophysical properties of a NADPH oxidase inhibitor
(Molecules, 2013-03-01) [Artigo]
Apocynin is the most employed inhibitor of NADPH oxidase (NOX), a multienzymatic complex capable of catalyzing the one-electron reduction of molecular oxygen to the superoxide anion. Despite controversies about its ...
