Cardamonin is a modulator of STAT3 activation in prostate cancer, repressing proliferation, invasion, and causing apoptosis. Cardamonin (Cardamomin), a natural flavone isolated from Alpinia katsumadai Hayata, acts as an aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) activator. Cardamonin alleviates inflammatory bowel disease by the inhibition of NLRP3 inflammasome activation via an AhR/Nrf2/NQO1 pathway .

How to use

In Vitro:

Cardamonin inhibits cancer cell growth by inducing G2/M phase cell cycle arrest and apoptosis via accumulation of ROS. Cardamonin has been reported to have anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor activities. Cardamonin inhibits activation of the NF-κB pathway, which in turn triggers ROS accumulation to activate JNK mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK). Cardamonin inhibits viability of NPC cells. It induces G2/M phase arrest in CNE-2 cells. Cardamonin-induced accumulation of ROS is mediated through inhibition of the NF-κB pathway. Cardamonin selectively blocks TRPA1 activation while did not interact with TRPV1 nor TRPV4 channel.

In Vivo:

Cardamonin inhibits tumor growth in vivo without serious side effects.
