General description

Alantolactone is a compound produced by Inula helenium. Alantolactone has antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties. It suppresses signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) activation in liver and breast cancer cells. Alantolactone induces apoptosis in A549 lung cancer cells.

Application

Alantolactone has been used:
  • in cell viability assay
  • to examine the percentage of multicentrosomal mitosis in low and high passage human embryonic stem cells (hESC)
  • in assessment of degranulation

Packaging

5, 25 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Alantolactone is a sesquiterpene lactone disrupts the Cripto-1/ActRII complexes, resulting in an induction of activin/SMAD3 signaling. Alantolactone inhibits proliferation in cancer cells with no affect on normal cells.

An Aedes aegypti larval toxicity bioassay was performed on compounds representing many classes of natural compounds including polyacetylenes, phytosterols, flavonoids, sesquiterpenoids, and triterpenoids. Among these compounds, two eudesmanolides, alantolactone, and isoalantolactone showed larvicidal activities against Ae. aegypti and, therefore, were
