human ... NFKB2(4791)

Application

Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) has been used to determine the effect of CAPE in hyperthyroidism, as a component of culture media to measure the cytotoxicity of breast cancer cell line MDA-MB-231, to study its effects on amiodarone-induced pulmonary fibrosis in rats.

Biochem/physiol Actions

CAPE exhibits several properties such as anticarcinogenic, immunomodulatory activities, antioxidant, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, hypoglycaemic effect, cardioprotective and inhibits gastric secretion. It also has an inhibitory effect on fibroblasts growth factor type 2 (FGF-2), a tumor growth factor in breast cancer.
Caffeic acid phenethyl ester is a specific inhibitor of the nuclear transcription factor NF-κB.
