Abstract Plant phenolics modify the metabolic activation of several carcinogens, including aromatic amines. In this study, we have evaluated the effects of three structurally diversified plant phenolics, protocatechuic acid (PCA), tannic acid (TA) and ellagic acid (EA) on cytochrome P450-dependent enzymes and glutathione S -transferase (GST) activities after oral administration alone or in combination with o -toluidine in rat liver and kidney. Protocatechuic and ellagic acids significantly decreased the activities of ethoxy- (EROD), methoxy- (MROD) and penthoxyresorufin (PROD) dealkylases in liver. In kidney, all phenolics inhibited only the activity of PROD. Enzyme modulation in liver correlated with CA metabolism measured in plasma. Treatment of rats with ellagic acid 1 h before o -toluidine administration diminished the activities of all hepatic alkoxyresorufine dealkylases induced by o -toluidine but increased renal EROD. In contrast to EA, protocatechuic and tannic acids increased the activities of P450-dependent enzymes in liver. All phenolics administered in combination with o -toluidine increased the activity of GST, which was reduced after the treatment with o -toluidine alone. In addition, CA metabolism in plasma resulting from oral treatment with CA was measured. The formation of CA metabolites was reduced by PCA and EA, and the metabolism of CA induced by o -toluidine was depressed by administration of all three phenolics. Our results indicate that plant phenolics, especially EA, may modulate the genotoxic effects of o -toluidine by modifying pathways leading to the formation of its reactive metabolite. Moreover, as the result of CYP1A modification these compounds may affect the metabolism of CA.

The chemopreventive effects of protocatechuic acid (PCA) were investigated during the post-initiation stage of the N-nitrosobis(2-oxopropyl)amine (BOP)-initiated hamster pancreatic tumorigenesis model. Female 5-week-old hamsters were divided into 6 groups. Animals in groups 1-3, each consisting of 30 hamsters, were given two sc injections of 20mg/kg body weight of BOP with a one week interval as an initiation treatment. After the BOP injection, hamsters in groups 1 and 2 were respectively fed di...

Abstract Caffeine (1,3,7-trimethylxanthine, CA) is metabolised by N -demethylation to three primary metabolites: theophylline (TP), paraxanthine (PX) and theobromine (TB). This process is mediated in 95% by CYP1A2. Thus the measurement of CA demethylated metabolites can be used as a marker of CYP1A2 activity in vivo. In the present study, caffeine and its primary metabolites were determined simultaneously in plasma of rats pretreated with three isomers of toluidine at doses: 1, 10, 60 mg/kg b.w....

Abstract For a rational implementation of chemoprevention strategies it is essential not only to assess the efficacy and safety of putative inhibitors by using a variety of test systems but also to understand the mechanisms involved. This article proposes a detailed classification of mechanisms along with pertinent examples of agents which may be potentially exploited in the host-addressed prevention of cancer and other mutation-related diseases. The classification, presented in tabulated form, ...

The modifying effects of dietary exposure to two natural products, protocatechuic acid (PCA) and Costunolide during the development of neoplasms in oral carcinogenesis initiated with 7,12-dimethyl-benz[a]anthracene (DMBA) were investigated in male Syrian golden hamsters. All hamsters except those in the test chemical alone and control groups received DMBA (0.5%) in mineral oil to the right buccal pouch 3 times per week for 4 or 6 weeks. At 13 weeks of age, the groups exposed to DMBA were fed die...

Abstract Traditional drugs or therapies rarely have effects on regression of chronic liver diseases, which result in many cases from sustained oxidative stress. In recent years, ellagic acid (EA) has gained attention due to its multiple biological activities and several molecular targets. This is the first review focused on the pharmacological properties and on the molecular mechanisms activated by EA in terms of liver protection. EA possesses antioxidant, antihepatotoxic, antisteatosic, anticho...

A natural phenolic compound, protocatechuic acid (3,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid), is present in many edible and medicinal plants. Recent studies, including our animal experiments, indicate that this simple phenolic acid could be protective against the development of epithelial malignancy in different tissues and cardiovascular diseases as well. The mechanism of the action is mostly associated with antioxidant activity, including inhibition of generation as well as scavenging of free radicals and upr...

Abstract Diet switching in mammalian herbivores may necessitate a change in the biotransformation enzymes used to process plant secondary compounds (PSCs). We investigated differences in the biotransformation system in the mammalian herbivore, Neotoma lepida, after a radical shift in diet and secondary compound composition. Populations of N. lepida in the Mojave Desert have evolved over the past 10,000 years to feed on creosote (Larrea tridentata) from an ancestral state of consuming juniper (Ju...
