Sulforaphane is an isothiocyanate present naturally in widely consumed vegetables. Sulforaphane increases tumor suppressor protein transcription and inhibits histone deacetylase activity. Sulforaphane activates Nrf2 and inhibits high glucose-induced progression of pancreatic cancer via AMPK dependent signaling. Sulforaphane has shown anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory activities.

How to use

In Vitro:

Sulforaphane induces a cell cycle arrest in a dose-dependent manner, followed by cell death. This sulforaphane-induced cell cycle arrest was correlated with an increased expression of cyclins A and B1. Sulforaphane induces cell death via an apoptotic process. Sulforaphane inhibits the reinitiation of growth and diminishes cellular viability in quiescent colon carcinoma cells (HT29) and has a lower toxicity on differentiated CaCo2 cells. Pre-treatment of H9c2 rat myoblasts with sulforaphane decreases the apoptotic cell number and the expression of pro-apoptotic proteins (Bax, caspase-3 and cytochrome c), as well as the doxorubicin-induced increase in mitochondrial membrane potential. Furthermore, sulforaphane increases the mRNA and protein expression of heme oxygenase-1, which consequently reduces the levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS, measured using MitoSOX Red reagent) in the mitochondria which are induced by doxorubicin.

In Vivo:

Sulforaphane can block the formation of ammary tumors in Sprague-Dawley rats treated with single doses of 9, 10-dimethyl-1, 2-benzanthracene. Administration of sulforaphane reduces the incidence, multiplicity, and weights and delays the development of the mammary tumors evoked by a single dose of DMBA in female Sprague-Dawley rats.
