Catalog Number: 1777
Alternate Names: (-)-Arctigenin
Chemical Name: (3R,4R)-4-[(3,4-Dimethoxyphenyl)methyl]dihydro-3-[(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)methyl]-2(3H)-furanone
Biological Activity
Antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiproliferative and antiviral agent. Inhibits LPS-induced iNOS expression via inhibition of IκBα phosphorylation and p65 nuclear translocation (IC50 = 10 nM). Inhibits HIV-1 replication in vitro. Also potently inhibits MKK1 (MEK1) (IC50 = 0.5 nM) and provides neuroprotection by binding to kainate receptors.
