Sulforaphane (SFN) is an isothiocyanate compound obtained from the enzymatic digestion of carrot sulfur glycosides in broccoli by black mustard enzyme. It is mostly found in cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, collard greens, kale, collard greens, mustard greens, bean greens, etc.
Sulforaphane has inhibitory effects on a variety of cancers, including breast, prostate, lung, bladder and colon cancers. Sulforaphane is the most potent anticancer activity of the known isothiocyanates1 and exerts oncogenic effects at multiple stages of tumorigenesis, making it a potential oncotherapeutic agent.
Sulforaphane is an Nrf2 signaling pathway activator. It can prevent oxidative stress injury and the resulting cardiovascular diseases. Sulforaphane resists chronic inflammatory responses, reduces cytokines and inflammatory mediators in the peritoneal fluid and plasma of patients with endometriosis, and promotes apoptosis of inflammatory cells. Sulforaphane also attenuates liver fibrosis at the transcriptional level and has risk-reducing effects on cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis and autism.
In order to explore the mechanism of action of sulforaphane and better develop the application of sulforaphane in medicine and health food, qualitative and quantitative analysis of sulforaphane is essential. Creative Proteomics has established LC-MS/MS and GC-MS analytical methods, which can provide you with accurate and efficient sulforaphane detection services.
