Effects of the environmental estrogens bisphenol A, o,p'-DDT, p-ferf-octylphenol and coumestrol
on apoptosis induction, cell proliferation and the expression of estrogen sensitive molecular parameters in the human breast cancer cell line MCF-7.
There are reports stating the adipolysis by phytoconstituents which include flavonoids like genistein, diadzein, coumestrol
and zearalenone (Kanclulska et al.
Flavonoids produced by leguminous plants, such as daidzein, genistein and coumestrol
, stimulate spore germination and mycorrhizal colonization (ANTUNES et al.
The three most estrogenic phytoestrogens are genistein, coumestrol
(a coumestan) and equol.
The phytoestrogens examined included soya isoflavones, lignans and enterolignans including equol and coumestrol
into the analysis.
5) 8-PN has a greater affinity for estrogenic receptors compared with coumestrol
from red clover (Trifolium pretense L.
Pueraria mirifica does contain the phytoestrogens daidzin, daidzein, genistein, coumestrol
, and genistin, but also the stronger estrogenic ingredients miroestrol and deoxymiroestrol.
Liquid chromatographic determination of the estrogens, daidzein, formononetin, coumestrol
and equol in bovine blood plasma and urine.
Included are isoflavones (genistein and daidzein), coumestrol
, formononetin, biochanin A and lignans.
The presence of some plant polyphenols such as piceatannol, taxifolin, coumestrol
, plumbagin, (-)-gallochatechin, (-)-rhein, (-)-epigallocatechin gallate, (-)-gallocatechin gallate, and (-)-epacatechin also decreased the number of revertants.
34) However, the mechanism is not clear and it cannot be assumed that sage alone was the effective component because alfalfa (Medicago sativa) is a significant source of the isoflavonoid, coumestrol
, which could have contributed to the observed efficacy.
tumefaciens strain has a genetic locus involving a pumping device that reduces the accumulation of coumestrol
(Palumbo et al.
