Bisdemethoxycurcumin has been used:
  • to test its inhibitory effect on cell cycle and mitochondrial function in gastric adenocarcinoma cells
  • to test it neuroprotective role against lead (Pb) induced toxicity in dopaminergic and noradrenergic systems of Meriones shawi
  • as a standard for calibration curve generation to quantify plasma curcuminoids using high-performance liquid chromatography-diode array detection (HPLC-DAD) and ultraviolet (UV)

Biochem/physiol Actions

Bisdemethoxycurcumin (BDMC) is a derivative or curcumin, and represents one of the major active components of curcumin products isolated from Curcumae sp. BDMC shares similar anti-inflammatory properties with demethoxycurcumin. It inhibits LPS-induced nitric oxide (NO) production and expression of iNOS and COX2 in RAW264.7 cells by blocking NF-kB activation. BDMC also displays unique properties in that it enhances Abeta clearance by upregulating expression MGAT3 and TLR genes. BDMC potently inhibits AKR1B10.
Bisdemethoxycurcumin (BMDC) is a stable dimethoxy derivative of curcumin and is useful as a supplement in cell culture medium. It also possesses antimicrobial, antioxidative and neuroprotective functionality.
