AP-1 (activating protein-1) is a collective term referring to dimeric transcription factors composed of Jun, Fos or ATF (activating transcription factor) subunits that bind to a common DNA site, the AP-1-binding site.
|PNRI-299 is a selective AP-1 transcription inhibitor with IC50 of 20 μM without affecting NF-kappaB transcription (up to 200 μM) or thioredoxin (up to 200 μM).
|Ganoderenic acid B
|Ganoderic acid, a triterpene found in Ganoderma mushrooms, is reported to exhibit anti-tumor activity mediated through its inhibitory effect on NFKB and AP-1 as well as antimetastasis and anti-HIV activities.
|1-Methyl-6-oxo-1,6-dihydropyridine-3-carboxylic acid is from Cordyceps bassiana, which is one of Cordyceps species with anti-oxidative, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, anti-obesity, anti-angiogenic, and anti-nociceptive activities. 1-Methyl-6-oxo-1,6-dihydropyridine-3-carboxylic acid targets to block AP-1-mediated luciferase activity, implying it has an anti-inflammatory function.
