Indole-3-carbinol (I3C), found in Brassica family vegetables, exhibits antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancerous properties. Here, we aimed to evaluate the preventive effects of I3C against ethanol (EtOH)-induced liver injury and study the protective mechanism(s) by using the well-established chronic-plus-binge alcohol exposure model. The preventive effects of I3C were evaluated by conducting various histological, biochemical, and real-time PCR analyses in mouse liver, adipose tissue, and colon, since functional alterations of adipose tissue and intestine can also participate in promoting EtOH-induced liver damage...

Cyprodinil (CYP) is a pyrimidine amine fungicide that has been extensively used in agricultural areas. 3,3'-Diindolylmethane (DIM) is a derivative of the dietary phytoestrogen, indole-3-carbinol (I3C), which is derived from cruciferous vegetables and considered to be a cancer-preventive phytonutrient agent. In this study, the effects of CYP and DIM were examined on the cell viability, invasion, and metastasis of human endometrial cancer cells, Ishikawa, via epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT). CYP increased the level of cell viability of Ishikawa cells compared to DMSO as a control, as did E2...

Glucobrassicin, a quantitatively significant constituent of Brassica vegetables, gives rise to indole-3-carbinol (I3C) and its dimer di-indolylmethane (DIM) when the vegetables are chewed. I3C and DIM have been extensively studied with respect to their anti-carcinogenic properties. However, the presumed intermediate isothiocyanate in their formation, indole-3-methyl isothiocyanate (IMITC), has to our knowledge never been observed, despite the fact that isothiocyanates derived from cruciferous vegetables are known to have anti-carcinogenic properties...

Aromatic and indole glucosinolates are important members of the glucosinolate family of compounds du to their potential medicinal properties. They are known to exert antioxidant and anti-carcinogenic activity either by the natural products themselves, or their metabolic products including indole-3-carbinol and isothiocyanates. Natural glucosinolates are all β-glucosinolates; however, α-glucosinolates are also promising compounds for medicinal applications and hence have to be produced synthetically for any bio-activity studies...

Phytochemicals are widely present in fruits, vegetables and other plants and have great health benefits owing to their antioxidant properties. They are naturally found in the aquatic environment as well as discharged from sewage treatment plants after their large consumption. Little is known about their impact on fish; particularly in light of their interactions with pharmaceuticals. Therefore, this study was designed to determine the effects of diosmin, naringenin, quercetin and idole-3-carbinol on CYP1A-dependent 7-ethoxyresorufin-O-deethylase (EROD) activity on rainbow trout hepatic microsomes in the presence of two pharmaceuticals: clotrimazole and dexamethasone...

Autophagy is activated in the ischemic heart and is a process that is essential for survival, differentiation, development and homeostasis. 3,3'‑Diindolylmethane (DIM) is a natural product of the acid‑catalyzed condensation of indole‑3‑carbinol in cruciferous vegetables. Numerous studies have suggested that DIM has various pharmacological effects, including antioxidant, antitumor, anti‑angiogenic and anti‑apoptotic properties. However, the function of DIM on hypoxia‑induced cardiac injury remains to be elucidated...

1-Benzyl-indole-3-carbinol (1-benzyl-I3C), a synthetic analogue of the crucifer derived natural phytochemical I3C, displayed significantly wider sensitivity and anti-proliferative potency in melanoma cells than the natural compound. Unlike I3C, which targets mainly oncogenic BRAF-expressing cells, 1-benzyl I3C effectively inhibited proliferation of melanoma cells with a more extensive range of mutational profiles, including those expressing wild type BRAF. In both cultured melanoma cell lines and in vivo in melanoma cell-derived tumor xenografts, 1-benzyl-I3C disrupted canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling that resulted in the down regulation of β-catenin protein levels with a concomitant increase in levels of the β-catenin destruction complex components GSK3β and Axin...

Although juvenile-onset recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (JoRRP) generally involves a benign tumor on the larynx and other respiratory tract areas, almost all patients with this disease require repeated surgical intervention (to prevent airway obstruction during the course of illness) and various adjuvant therapies such as interferon, cidofovir, acyclovir, ribavirin, indole-3-carbinol, HspE7, mumps vaccine, photodynamic therapy, propranolol, cimetidine, and bevacizumab. Some case reports recently described the effectiveness of the quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV4) as an adjuvant therapy...

This study aimed the development of nanocapsules (NCs) for oral indole-3-carbinol (I3C) administration and evaluation of antinociceptive potential of this compound in its two forms, free and nanoencapsulated, using acute pain models. NCs showed adequate physicochemical characteristics and protected the I3C against UVC radiation exposure. It was observed no chemical bond between I3C and polymer by FTIR. Besides, X-ray and DSC analysis suggested that I3C was molecularly dispersed in NCs. The dialysis bag technique showed that almost 100% of the compound was released from NCs at 360min...

BACKGROUND: 3,3'-Diindolylmethane (DIM) is a condensation product of indole-3-carbinol, a glucosinolate naturally occurring in Brassica genus vegetables. The antiinflammatory properties of DIM through the inhibition of NF-κB, as well as its ameliorating effects on glucose tolerance and hyperglicemic states, have been described. A subclinical proinflammatory profile resultant from the interaction of adipocytes and macrophages have been reported in obesity, affecting the insulin signaling pathway, contributing to insulin resistance...

The tumor suppressor phosphatase and tensin homologue (PTEN) has phosphatase activity, with phosphatidylinositol (3,4,5)-trisphosphate (PIP3), a product of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K), as one of the principal substrates. PTEN is a negative regulator of the Akt pathway, which plays a fundamental role in controlling cell growth, survival, and proliferation. Loss of PTEN function has been observed in many different types of cancer. Functional inactivation of PTEN as a consequence of germ-line mutations or promoter hypermethylation predisposes individuals to malignancies...

The Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) is produced by the members of the cruciferous family, in particular members of the Brassica genus. In vitro investigations has shown that I3C suppresses the proliferation of various tumor cells, including breast, prostate, endometrial, colon cancers and leukemic cells via induction of G1/S arrest of the cell cycle and further induces apoptosis. Cancer cells exhibit deregulation in multiple cellular signaling pathways. Therefore, treatments with specific agents which only target one of these pathways are usually not effective in cancer therapy...

Malignant mesothelioma (MM) is a very aggressive, lethal cancer, and its incidence is increasing worldwide. Development of multi-drug resistance, therapy related side-effects, and disease recurrence after therapy are the major problems for the successful treatment of MM. Emerging evidence indicates that dietary phytochemicals can exert anti-cancer activities by regulating microRNA expression. Until now, only one dietary phytochemical (ursolic acid) has been reported to have MM microRNA regulatory ability. A large number of dietary phytochemicals still remain to be tested...

BACKGROUND: Ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) induces tissue inflammation, which is characterized by an increased leukocyte-endothelial cell interaction and leukocyte transmigration. These processes are mediated by the activation of the nuclear factor (NF)κB signaling pathway, resulting in an elevated expression of specific adhesion molecules. The phytochemical indole-3-carbinol (I3C) has been shown to exert anti-inflammatory effects by interfering with NFκB signal transduction. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether I3C is capable of counteracting the pathogenesis of I/R injury...

Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) and its dimer diindolylmethane (DIM) are bioactive metabolites of a glucosinolate, glucobrassicin, found in cruciferous vegetables. Both I3C and DIM have been reported to possess pro-apoptotic, anti-proliferative and anti-carcinogenic properties via modulation of immune pathways. However, results from these studies remain inconclusive since they lack thorough evaluation of these bioactives' physiological versus pharmacological effects. In the present study, we investigated I3C and DIM's dose-dependent effects on cytokines production in human T lymphocytes Jurkat cell line (Clone E6-1)...

In general, dietary antigens are tolerated by the gut associated immune system. Impairment of this so-called oral tolerance is a serious health risk. We have previously shown that activation of the ligand-dependent transcription factor aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) by the environmental pollutant 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) affects both oral tolerance and food allergy. In this study, we determine whether a common plant-derived, dietary AhR-ligand modulates oral tolerance as well. We therefore fed mice with indole-3-carbinole (I3C), an AhR ligand that is abundant in cruciferous plants...

Signal transducer and activator of transcription 5 and Akt pathways, implicated in signaling transduction downstream of BCR-ABL, play critical roles in the pathogenesis of chronic myeloid leukemia. Therefore, idenication of novel compounds that modulate the activity of such pathways could be a new approach in the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia. Previous studies have demonstrated that indole-3-carbinol inhibits the proliferation and induces apoptosis of various tumor cells. However, its anticancer activity against chronic myeloid leukemia cells and the underlying mechanism remain unclear...
