  • Indole-3-carbinol (I3C), found in cruciferous vegetables, has been shown to suppress tumorigenesis at estrogen-responsive sites. This effect may be mediated through modification by I3C of the cytochrome P450 (CYP) complement and activities leading to estrogen detoxication. In this study, we examined the effects of 4- and 10-day treatments of female Sprague-Dawley rats with I3C at 5, 25, and 250 mg/kg body weight, administered by oral gavage, on CYP mRNA expression in the liver and mammary gland… CONTINUE READING
