Technical Data
Nimbolide (4a,5a,6a,7a,15b,17a)-7,15:21,23-Diepoxy-6-hydroxy-4,8-dimethyl-1-oxo-18,24-dinor-11,12-secochola-2,13,20,22-tetraene-4,11-dicarboxylic Acid g-lactone Methyl Ester, CCRIS 5723, NSC-309909)
Biochemicals Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
A terpenoid lactone derived from Azadirachta indica (Neem tree) that displays a variety of biological activities including anti-malarial and anticancer activity. Recently it has also been shown that nimbolide sensitizes colon cancer cells to TRAIL-induced apoptosis through three distinct mechanisms: reactive oxygen species and ERK-mediated up-regulation of DR5 and DR4, downregulation of cell survival proteins, and up-regulation of pro-apoptotic proteins p53 and Bax.
