Chebulinic Acid is a potent protectant against glutamate-induced neuronal cell death. It has been shown to significantly reduce intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and Ca2+ influx induced by glutamate, decrease the phosphorylation of mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs), including ERK1/2, JNK, and p38, as well as inhibit pro-apoptotic Bax and increase anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 protein expression.

How to use

In Vitro:

In vitro: binding of Chebulinic acid causes displacement of catalytic Tyr129 away from its target DNA-phosphate molecule. Chebulinic acid reduce the expression and activity of MMP-2 at an ED50 value of 100 μM. EMT (Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition) is found to be induced in ARPE-19 cells, through SMAD-3 phosphorylation and it is inhibited by CA. chebulinic acid significantly inhibited H+ K+-ATPase activity in vitrowith IC50 of 65.01 μg/ml.
