Anti-oxidative, anti-tumor-promoting, and anti-carcinogenic activities of adonirubin and adonixanthin, which are biosynthetic intermediates from β-carotene to astaxanthin, were investigated. Both adonirubin and adonixanthin showed almost the same activities for inhibition of lipid peroxidation and quenching of singlet oxygen as those of astaxanthin. Furthermore, adonirubin and adonixanthin exhibited an inhibitory effect on Epstein-Barr virus early antigen activation in Raji cells and…

Anti-tumour-promoting and thermal-induced protein denaturation inhibitory activities of β-sitosterol and lupeol isolated from Diospyros lotus L.
TLDR
Both the compounds exhibited a marked anti-tumour-promoting and potent inhibitory effect on thermal-induced protein denaturation on heat-inducedprotein denaturation.
Antitumour Effects of Astaxanthin and Adonixanthin on Glioblastoma
TLDR
Astaxanthin and adonixanthin showed an ability to suppress cell proliferation and migration in three types of glioblastoma cells and were confirmed to transfer to the brain in a murine model.
On a Beam of Light: Photoprotective Activities of the Marine Carotenoids Astaxanthin and Fucoxanthin in Suppression of Inflammation and Cancer
TLDR
Astaxanthin and fucoxanthin are peculiar marine carotenoids characterized by outstanding antioxidant properties and ASX showed exceptional efficacy in counteracting all categories of photodamages, in vitro and in vivo, thanks to both antioxidant potential and activation of alternative pathways.
Central Nervous System Migration of Astaxanthin and Adonixanthin Following Their Oral Administration in Cynomolgus Monkeys.
TLDR
Findings indicate that astaxanthin and adonixanthin can enter the central nervous system of primates following their oral administration, and provides important evidence for the activity of astax anthin andadonxanthin on thecentral nervous system.
Enriched Astaxanthin Extract from Haematococcus pluvialis Augments Growth Factor Secretions to Increase Cell Proliferation and Induces MMP1 Degradation to Enhance Collagen Production in Human Dermal Fibroblasts
TLDR
It was noticeable that EAE had a positive impact on cell proliferation and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) than doxycycline, indicating that it was a better alternative treatment for collagen production.

Chemoprevention of rat oral carcinogenesis by naturally occurring xanthophylls, astaxanthin and canthaxanthin.
TLDR
The results indicate that AX and CX are possible chemopreventers for oral carcinogenesis, and such effects may be partly due to suppression of cell proliferation.
Suppression of azoxymethane-induced rat colon carcinogenesis by dietary administration of naturally occurring xanthophylls astaxanthin and canthaxanthin during the postinitiation phase.
TLDR
The results indicate that AX and CX are possible chemopreventers for carcinogenesis of colon in addition to urinary bladder and oral cavity and such effects may be partly due to suppression of cell proliferation.
Chemoprevention of mouse urinary bladder carcinogenesis by the naturally occurring carotenoid astaxanthin.
TLDR
AX is a possible chemopreventive agent for bladder carcinogenesis and such an effect of AX may be partly due to suppression of cell proliferation, as indicated by results of mice treated with AX or CX.
Suppression of Azoxymethane‐induced Rat Colon Aberrant Crypt Foci by Dietary Protocatechuic Acid
TLDR
Evidence is provided that PCA could be a chemopreventive agent against rat colon carcinogenesis and the frequency of ACF/colon was significantly decreased, and the mean AgNORs count in rats fed PCA was significantly smaller than that of rats treated with AOM alone.
