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.
