TriterpenesInduction of apoptosis of metastatic lung tumor cells

Introduction: The State Key Laboratory of Bioreactor Engineering of East China University of Science and Technology stated in the international weekly magazine "Life Science" (2006) that ganoderic acid T (GA-T) is a triterpenoid in Ganoderma lucidum, which is found to exert cytotoxicity on various human cancer cell lines in a dose-dependent manner but it is less toxic to normal people. The results show that GA-T induces metastatic lung tumor cell apoptosis through intrinsic pathways related to mitochondrial dysfunction and protein P53 expression. It may be a potentially useful chemotherapeutic agent.

With further clinical development, ergosterol peroxide represents a promising new agent that can overcome the drug resistance of tumor cells.
