Herein, 15 thyme honey samples from several regions of Greece were submitted to phytochemical analysis for the isolation, identification and determination (through modern spectral means) of the unique thyme honey monoterpene, the compound trihydroxy ketone E-4-(1,2,4-trihydroxy-2,6,6- trimethylcyclohexyl)-but-3-en-2-one.
We investigated the anti-growth and apoptotic effects of the trihydroxy ketone on PC-3 human androgen independent prostate cancer cells using MTT assay and Annexin V-FITC respectively.
The trihydroxy ketone exerted significant apoptotic activity in PC-3 prostate cancer cells at 100 [micro]M, while it inhibited NF-[kappa]B phosphorylation and IL-6 secretion at a concentration range [10.
It is remarkable that a trihydroxy ketone E4-(1,2,4-trihydroxy-2,6,6-trimethyI-cyclohexyl)-but- 3-en-2-one which is a monoterpene--has been isolated as a unique component in the ether extract derived from New Zealand thyme honey (Tan et al.
Therefore in this study, 15 thyme honey samples from several regions of Greece (well known for their thyme bee-honey production) were submitted to chromatographic and spectrometric (GC/MS, NMR) analyses for the isolation and identification of trihydroxy ketone E-4-(1,2,4-trihydroxy-2,6,6-trimethylcyclohexyl)-but-3-en-2-one (called from now onwards as Compound 1) which is a unique thyme honey component.
