A bicyclic diterpenoid lactone that displays anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-apoptotic, and anti-hyperglycemic properties. Acts as an irreversible antagonist of NF-κB and AP-1 (IC50 ≤ 15 µM) activation, and prevents in vitro and in vivo T cell activation. Exerts no effect on IκBα degradation, p50 and p65 nuclear translocation. Inhibits iNOS and Mac-1 expressions and ROS production, and prevents endotoxin shock in mouse model. Further, reported to activate PI 3K/Akt pathway.
