Ganoderic acid D, a highly oxygenated tetracyclic triterpenoid, is the major active component of Ganoderma lucidum. Ganoderic acid D upregulates the protein expression of SIRT3 and induces the deacetylated cyclophilin D (CypD) by SIRT3. Ganoderic acid D inhibits the energy reprogramming of colon cancer cells including glucose uptake, lactate production, pyruvate and acetyl-coenzyme production in colon cancer cells. Ganoderic acid D induces HeLa human cervical carcinoma apoptosis.

How to use

In Vitro:

Ganoderic acid D can inhibit the growth of numerous cancer cell lines and it inhibits HeLa human cervical carcinoma cells with an IC50 of 17.3 mM. Ganoderic acid D (1-50 μM; 24-72 hours) reduces the cell survival rate in a dose- and time-dependent manner. Ganoderic acid D (10, 50 μM; 24, 48 hours) induces G2/M phase arrest. Ganoderic acid D (10, 50 μM; 24, 48 hours) induces a morphological change typical of apoptosis in HeLa cells. Ganoderic acid D (10 μM; 48 hours) up-regulates 14-3-3E and PRDX3.
