Wedelolactone, a natural product from Ecliptae herba, suppresses LPS-induced caspase-11 expression by directly inhibiting the IKK Complex. Wedelolactone inhibits 5-lipoxygenase (5-Lox) (IC50~2.5 μM) activity by an oxygen radical scavenging mechanism. Wedelolactone induces caspase-dependent apoptosis in prostate cancer cells via downregulation of PKCε without inhibiting Akt. Anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant activities.
