Guggulsterone is a plant sterol derived from the gum resin of the tree Commiphora wightii. Guggulsterone inhibits the growth of a wide variety of tumor cells and induces apoptosis through down regulation of antiapoptotic gene products (IAP1, xIAP, Bfl-1/A1, Bcl-2, cFLIP and survivin), modulation of cell cycle proteins (cyclin D1 and c-Myc), activation of caspases and JNK, inhibition of Akt. Guggulsterone, a farnesoid X receptor (FXR) antagonist, decreases CDCA-induced FXR activation with IC50s of 17 and 15 μM for Z- and E-Guggulsterone, respectively.

How to use

In Vitro:

Guggulsterone (0.5-20 μM; 24 hours) suppresses TREM-1, TLR4 and TNF-α expression as well as the phosphorylation of IκBα and NF-κB p65 by LPS.

In Vivo:

Guggulsterone (orally; 100 mg/kg once per day for 8 days) significantly improved the survival rates of wild-type mice with TNBS-induced colitis.
