A Novel Dimeric Melampolide and Further Terpenoids from Smallanthus sonchifolius (Asteraceae) and the Inhibition of the Transcription Factor NF-κB
TLDR
A novel dimeric melampolide was isolated from the leaf rinse extract of Smallanthus sonchifolius, an Andean medicinal plant popularly known as yacón, and its anti-inflammatory properties were assessed in vitro by analyzing its effect on the DNA binding of the transcription factor NF-κB.
Natural and Semi-Synthetic Pseudoguaianolides as Inhibitors of NF-κB
TLDR
The importance of α methylene-γ-lactone moiety for the anti-cancer activity was confirmed, even though other features in the scaffold were shown to be important for the activity.

Anti-allergic effects of sesquiterpene lactones from the root of Aucklandia lappa Decne.
TLDR
It is indicated that costunolide, dehydrocostus lactone and alantolactone may have the potential to be used for treating inflammatory skin disorders by suppressing chemokine expression.
Sesquiterpene lactones as inhibitors of IL-8 expression in HeLa cells.
Actividad supresora del millerenlido sobre clulas mononucleares de sangre perifrica humana
TLDR
Treatment of human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) with millerenolide decreases the proliferation of lymphocytes, decreases the percentage of cells in S, and G2/M phases, and increases the proportion ofcells in G0/G1 phase, which could indicate a potential therapeutic agent with immunosuppressive properties.
PHYTOCHEMICAL BASIS OF ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AND ANT- MICROBIAL ACTIVITY OF ACHYRANTHES ASPERA
TLDR
A. aspera is an effective ant-inflammatory agent, antibacterial agent for gram positive bacteria, while it not that much effective antifungal agent, may be due to presence of specific combination of chemicals present in this plant.

The Anti-inflammatory Sesquiterpene Lactone Helenalin Inhibits the Transcription Factor NF-κB by Directly Targeting p65*
TLDR
This sesquiterpene lactone helenalin is the first anti-inflammatory agent shown to exert its effect by directly modifying NF-κB, the central mediator of the human immune response.
Nuclear factor-kappaB: a pivotal transcription factor in chronic inflammatory diseases.
In chronic inflammatory diseases, such as asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and psoriasis, several cytokines recruit activated immune and inflammatory cells to the site of
Function and activation of NF-kappa B in the immune system.
TLDR
The inhibition of NF-kappa B activation by antioxidants and specific protease inhibitors may provide a pharmacological basis for interfering with these acute processes in suppressing toxic/septic shock, graft-vs-host reactions, acute inflammatory reactions, severe phase response, and radiation damage.
A novel signal transduction pathway from the endoplasmic reticulum to the nucleus is mediated by transcription factor NF‐kappa B.
TLDR
It is shown that internal stress, caused by the accumulation of proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum, also induces NF‐kappa B DNA binding as well as kappa B‐dependent gene expression and participates in a novel ER‐nuclear signal transduction pathway distinct from the unfolded‐protein‐response described previously.
OECD GUIDELINE FOR TESTING OF CHEMICALS
TLDR
The comet assay has been reviewed and recommendations have been published by various expert groups and this Test Guideline provides succinct and useful guidance to users of these Test Guidelines.
