Allyl isothiocyanate (AITC) was suitable for use in the following studies:
  • Quantitation of the N-acetylcysteine conjugate of AITC in human urine after ingestion of mustard.
  • Evaluation of the fungitoxic activity of AITC vapour on Penicillium expansum on pears, particularly on a thiabendazole (TBZ)-resistant P. expansum strain in vivo, to verify whether AITC treatment could be a substitute for TBZ.
  • Study of the induction of acetylation of histone in mouse erythroleukemia cells by some organosulfur compounds.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Naturally occurring constituent of cruciferous vegetables that has anti-tumor and anti-oxidant properties. Induces the activity of phase II detoxification enzymes in the urinary bladder and, thus, may be chemoprotective against bladder cancer.

Ally isothiocyanate has been reported to be a bladder carcinogen in male rats. On the other hand, benzyl isothiocyanate is an anti-carcinogen. These contradicting properties led us to investigate the cytotoxicity of these compounds in RL-4 rat hepatocytes. Since conjugation...

Sympathetic fibres maintain some forms of neuropathic pain, but the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. Therefore, this study investigated the possible involvement of transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) and the role of the sympathetic nervous system (involved in sympathetically...

Allyl isothiocyanate (AITC), an organosulfur compound in cruciferous vegetables, is a natural antimicrobial and potential chemopreventive agent. However, the instability of AITC in aqueous systems restrains its applications. In this study, oil-in-water AITC nanoemulsion was prepared by the emulsion inversion...

Identification of genetic variants that influence susceptibility to pain is key to identifying molecular mechanisms and targets for effective and safe therapeutic alternatives to opioids. To identify genes and variants associated with persistent pain, we measured late-phase response to formalin...

The TRPA1 ion channel is activated by electrophilic compounds through the covalent modification of intracellular cysteine residues. How non-covalent agonists activate the channel and whether covalent and non-covalent agonists elicit the same physiological responses are not understood. Here, we report...
