Description

General description

Auraptene (7-geranyloxycoumarin) is a prenyloxycoumarin, that is abundantly present in nature. It is produced by several plant species, such as Rutaceae and Umbeliferae (Apiaceae) families.

Packaging

5, 25 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Auraptene is an estrogen receptor modulator that also acts as an ACAT inhibitor. It displays anti-tumor effects in several xenograft and chemically-induced murine tumor models. Auraptene induces apoptosis and is anti-proliferative in cancer cell lines. It has agonistic properties against PPARs, and interferes with lipid and cholesterol production by inhibiting ACAT (IC50 = 4 uM).

Auraptene (7-geranyloxycoumarin) possesses anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor activities.
