Protoanemonin, an antimutagen
isolated from plants.
Testing of pure compounds at doses relevant to their levels in tea identified epigallocatechin (EGC) and epigalocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) as the primary antimutagens
1991) it can be therefore suggested that these known antimutagens
may interact with some specific enzymes in the liver homogenates, which are necessary for activation of chemical mutagens.
Therefore, agents which can protect cellular membranes against IR and ROS/RNS will have potential benefits as radioprotectors, antioxidant and antimutagens
(Odin 1997; Stavric 1994).
This increase is due largely to a search for and analysis of antimutagens
, mainly from plant extracts.
Nakasugi T and K Komai Antimutagens
in the Brazilian folk medicinal plant Carqueja (Baccharis trimera Less).
Citrus is used as a model for this approach in that citrus is a rich source of antioxidants, antimutagens
, anticarcinogens, and chemoprotective compounds.
But current scientific thinking is that mutagens in our food are counterbalanced by other compounds that are antimutagens
Major classes of CP agents include the antimutagens
(oltipraz), antiproliferative agents (retinoids), antioxidants (vitamin E), and antiinflammatory agents (sulindac).
Dietary and medicinal antimutagens
and anticarcinogens: molecular mechanisms and chemopreventive potential-highlights of a symposium.
