Tryptanthrins and other tryptophan-derived agonists of the dioxin receptor.

Abstract

2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) and related environmental pollutants exert most of their adverse effects via the aryl hydrocarbon or dioxin receptor (AhR). While most potent agonists of the AhR are of synthetic origin, an increasing number of natural compounds is now recognized as receptor agonists. Our findings demonstrate that some tryptanthrin… (More)
