Description

(-)-Menthol is a key component of peppermint oil that binds and activates transient receptor potential melastatin 8 (TRPM8), a Ca2+-permeable nonselective cation channel, to increase [Ca2+]i[1]. Antitumor activity[1].

IC50 & Target

TRPM8[1]

In Vitro

(-)-Menthol (Menthol ) per se does not exhibit antiproliferative activity, but it is able to enhance 1α,25(OH)2D3-mediated growth inhibition in LNCaP cells. At high (-)-Menthol concentrations above 1.6 mM, the cells begin to detach from the culture dish[1].
(-)-Menthol (0.8 mM) can increase [Ca2+]i via transmembrane influx or store release pathways. Peak increase in [Ca2+]i was 102.3±39 nM (n=3) in (-)-Menthol alone and 124.5±51 nM (n=3) in combination of 1α,25(OH)2D3 with (-)-Menthol, respectively[1].
Combination of 1α,25(OH)2D3 with (-)-Menthol (0.8 mM) cooperatively modulates bcl-2 and p21 expression[1].
