Aromatase (CYP19) converts androgens to estrogens. By synthesizing estrogens, aromatase (especially tumor aromatase) is thought to play an important role in promoting breast cancer growth in postmenopausal women. By inhibiting estrogen biosynthesis, aromatase inhibitors, including phytochemicals, are potential chemopreventive agents for breast cancer. Our recent aromatase inhibition experiments have revealed that grape juice contains compounds that inhibit aromatase. Inhibition kinetic analysis… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

White button mushroom phytochemicals inhibit aromatase activity and breast cancer cell proliferation.
TLDR
The results suggest that diets high in mushrooms may modulate the aromatase activity and function in chemoprevention in postmenopausal women by reducing the in situ production of estrogen.
Nutrition and Cancer White Button Mushroom Phytochemicals Inhibit Aromatase Activity and Breast Cancer Cell Proliferation 1 , 2
TLDR
The results suggest that diets high in mushrooms may modulate the aromatase activity and function in chemoprevention in postmenopausal women by reducing the in situ production of estrogen.
Suppression of aromatase (estrogen synthetase) by red wine phytochemicals
TLDR
It was found that the intake of the 20% ACN fraction by gavage completely abrogated aromatase-induced hyperplasia and other changes in the mammary tissue, the first report demonstrating that wine, especially red wine, contains phytochemicals that can inhibit aromatases.
Phytochemicals for breast cancer prevention by targeting aromatase.
TLDR
This review will discuss whole food extracts and the common classes of phytochemicals which have been investigated for potential aromatase inhibitory activity, and possible structural variations that may inhibit or enhance the interaction of phydochemicals with the aromat enzyme.
Anti‐Aromatase Chemicals in Red Wine
TLDR
Red wine or red wine extract may be a chemopreventive diet supplement for postmenopausal women who have a high risk of breast cancer and the results suggest that red wine was more effective than white wine in suppressing aromatase activity.
Prevention and Treatment of Breast Cancer by Suppressing Aromatase Activity and Expression
TLDR
An understanding of the molecular mechanisms of aromatase expression between noncancerous and cancerous breast tissue, at both transcriptional and translational levels, may help in the design of a therapy based on suppressing aromatases expression in breast cancer tissue.
Suppression of estrogen biosynthesis by procyanidin dimers in red wine and grape seeds.
TLDR
In vitro and in vivo studies demonstrated that procyanidin B dimers in red wine and grape seeds could be used as chemopreventive agents against breast cancer by suppressing in situ estrogen biosynthesis.
Anti-estrogenic and anti-aromatase activities of citrus peels major compounds in breast cancer
TLDR
An antitumor potential for naringenin, naringin and quercetin isolated from citrus peels in breast cancer via possible modulation of estrogen signaling and aromatase inhibition is suggested suggesting their use in pre- and post-menopausal breast cancer patients, respectively.
Control of Estrogen Biosynthesis in Breast Cancer
TLDR
It is demonstrated that in-situ produced E plays a more important role than circulating Es in breast tumor promotion and approaches to repress aromatase/E biosynthesis in BC tissue are developed.

Cancer Chemopreventive Activity of Resveratrol, a Natural Product Derived from Grapes
TLDR
It is suggested that resveratrol, a common constituent of the human diet, merits investigation as a potential cancer chemopreventive agent in humans.
A new nude mouse model for postmenopausal breast cancer using MCF-7 cells transfected with the human aromatase gene.
TLDR
The tumors of this mouse model are dependent for their growth on estrogens from an endogenous nonovarian source and could be used to evaluate the effect of aromatase inhibitors and antiestrogens.
Phytoestrogen interaction with estrogen receptors in human breast cancer cells.
TLDR
In sum, phytoestrogens interact with the estrogen receptors of human breast cancer cells in culture and, therefore, may affect estrogen-mediated events in these cells.

Inhibition of human estrogen synthetase (aromatase) by flavones.
TLDR
Several naturally occurring and synthetic flavones were found to inhibit the aromatization of androstenedione and testosterone to estrogens catalyzed by human placental and ovarian microsomes and compete with steroids in their interaction with certain monooxygenases and thereby alter steroid hormone metabolism.
