Description

General description

A triterpenoid saponin isolated from liquorice roots that displays antiviral and anti-tumor activities. Inhibits replication, adsorption, and penetration of severe acute respiratory syndrome-associated coronavirus (SARS-CV), presumably via its ability to upregulate nitric oxide synthase activity. Reported to block the growth of other viruses, including herpes virus, and helps restore liver functions in patients with hepatitis C. It is allso a known 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2 (11-HSD2) inhibitor.

A triterpenoid saponin, isolated from liquorice roots, that exhibits anti-viral and anti-tumor activities. Inhibits replication, adsorption, and penetration of severe acute respiratory syndrome-associated coronavirus (SARS-CV), presumably as a result of its ability to upregulate nitric oxide synthase activity. Also reported to hamper the growth of other viruses, including herpes virus. Shown to restore liver function in patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV). Also shown to inhibit 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2 (11-HSD2).
