Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Naturally occurring phenylpropene derivative that is estrogenic at lower concentrations and cytotoxic at higher concentrations to cancer cell lines. The cytotoxicity is related to the metabolism of trans-anethole to 4-hydroxy-1-propenylbenzene.

Major metabolite of trans-anethole in human volunteers was 4-methoxyhippuric acid. It can be metabolized by a Arthrobacter strain (TA13).

Packaging

25, 100 mL in glass bottle

Application

trans-Anethole was used as carbon and energy supplement in the culture media of Pseudomonas putida strain, JYR-1 .

General description

trans-Anethole is the chief component of several essential oils including star anise, anise seed oil and sweet fennel. It is a commercial flavor substance in baked goods, candy,ice cream, chewing gum, and alcoholic beverages.
