Description

γ-Tocopherol (D-γ-Tocopherol) is a potent cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibitor. γ-Tocopherol is a naturally occurring form of Vitamin E in many plant seeds, such as corn oil and soybeans. γ-Tocopherol possesses antiinflammatory properties and anti-cancer activity[1].

IC50 & Target[1]

Cyclooxygenase

 

In Vitro

γ-Tocopherol (D-γ-Tocopherol) is well absorbed and accumulates to a significant degree in some human tissues; it is metabolized, however, largely to 2,7,8-trimethyl-2-(beta-carboxyethyl)-6-hydroxychroman (gamma-CEHC), which is mainly excreted in the urine[1].
Plasma concentrations of γ-Tocopherol (D-γ-Tocopherol) are inversely associated with the incidence of cardiovascular disease and prostate cancer[1].
