Angelicin, a furocoumarin naturally occurring tricyclic aromatic compound, structurally related to psoralens, is reported to have anti-cancer, antiviral, anti-inflammatory activity. IC50 value: 49.56 μM (cellular cytotoxicity); 5.39 μg/ml (28.95 μM) (against MHV-68) Target: In vitro: In human SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells, angelicin increased cellular cytotoxicity in a dose- and time-dependent manner with IC50 of 49.56 μM at 48 h of incubation. Angelicin dose-dependently downregulated the expression of anti-apoptotic proteins including Bcl-2, Bcl-xL, and Mcl-1; Angelicin-induced apoptosis is mediated primarily through the intrinsic caspase-mediated pathway. Angelicin efficiently inhibited 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA)-induced lytic replication of human gammaherpresviruses in both EBV- and KSHV-infected cells. Angelicin was potentially advantageous to prevent inflammatory diseases by inhibiting NF-κB and MAPK pathways.
