Capsaicin inhibits the IL-6/STAT3 pathway by depleting intracellular gp130 pools through endoplasmic reticulum stress.


Capsaicin has been shown to have anti-carcinogenic effects on various tumor cells through multiple mechanisms. It was recently reported that capsaicin inhibited interleukin-6 (IL-6)-induced activation of signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3), an anti-apoptotic transcription factor. Here we demonstrate that capsaicin induced… (More)
