Zingiberene (α-Zingiberene) is a monocyclic sesquiterpene which is the predominant constituent of ginger with oil content (Zingiber officinale). Neuroprotective potential[1]. Zingiberene triggers autophagy. Anticancer activity[2].

In Vitro

Zingiberene (6.25, 12.5, 25, 50 and 100 μg/mL; 24 hours) attenuates hydrogen peroxide-induced toxicity in neuronal cells[1].
Zingiberene (0, 10, 20 and 40 µM; 24 hours) considerably inhibits the proliferation of Colon cancer (CC) cells[2].

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
