General description

Ellagic acid is a naturally occurring phenolic acid in many fruits and vegetables, as a secondary plant metabolite. It is commonly found in green tea, pomegranate, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and walnuts.

Application

Ellagic acid has been used:
  • to study the metabolism of dietary phenolic acids by Lactobacillus plantarum CECT 748T
  • as a potential substrate for the high production of Lactobacillus plantarum tannase
  • as a standard in the study to examine the phenolic components and anti-oxidant activity of nettle
  • to study the links between dietary ellagic acid and epigenetic modulation of adipogenesis

Biochem/physiol Actions

Ellagic acid has been found to exhibit antioxidant activity by virtue of having an inhibitory effect on the oxidation of low-density lipoproteins. This makes them have a cardioprotective effect on humans. In addition, it shows anticarcinogenic, antifibrotic, antiplasmodial, apoptotic, and chemopreventive activities as well.
Commonly occurring plant polyphenol, inhibitor of glutathione S-transferase. Used for the assay of factor XIIa in plasma. Contact activation in blood coagulation.

Dietary inhibitors of mutagenesis and carcinogenesis are of particular interest because they may be useful for human cancer prevention. Several mutagenesis inhibitors have been demonstrated to be carcinogenesis inhibitors also, e.g., ellagic acid, palmitoleic acid, and N-acetylcysteine. This means that
