4-hydroxy 3 methoxycinnamic acid (Ferulic acid) is one of the derivatives of cinnamic acid. Ferulic acid can scavenge free radicals, promote the production of free radical scavenging enzymes, increase the activity of glutathione S-transferase and purine reductase, and inhibit tyrosinase activity to regulate human physiology.
Use of Ferulic acid
For food preservatives and organic synthesis of raw materials
As a phenolic plant ingredient, ferulic acid has strong antioxidant activity and greatly promotes human health. Ferulic acid can significantly increase the content of glutathione and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate in irradiated cells, and protect the irradiated endothelial cells. Heme oxygenase is an antioxidant enzyme that converts heme into biliverdin and finally converts it into antioxidant bilirubin. Ferulic acid can regulate the expression of this enzyme. Thus protecting radiation protection
Metabolism is a characteristic of living organisms. At the same time, living organisms are all the time being activated by reactive oxygen species (molecules or free radicals that are directly or indirectly converted from molecular oxygen than molecular oxygen), free radicals (also known as free radicals, It refers to an attack in an outer orbital containing atoms, atomic groups or special states of unpaired electrons. Both of these substances can directly participate in tumor formation or induce the production of carcinogens, causing changes in the DNA of living organisms. Activation, which promotes the body to produce cancer cells to reduce antioxidant damage is a key link in the prevention and treatment of related diseases. Studies have shown that ferulic acid can kill free radicals and restore the normal function of living organisms. Ferulic acid can inhibit the enzymes that produce free radicals in living organisms. On this basis, enzymes that scavenge free radicals can also be increased. At the same time, ferulic acid can greatly enhance the activity of awake reductase, glutathionation and transsulfase, and control the proportion of active tyrosinase. Zhouen et al. showed that the antioxidant effect of ferulic acid was significant, and it had good scavenging effects on ammonia peroxide, superoxide radicals, hydroxyl radicals, and nitro peroxide.
Ferulic acid can be obtained from plants in three ways: one is obtained from a combination of ferulic acid with some small molecules, the other is obtained from the plant cell wall, and the third is obtained by tissue culture. In plants, ferulic acid is cross-linked with polysaccharides and lignin by ester bonds or self-esterified or etherified to form diferulic acid. Generally, the ester bond is used to release ferulic acid by alkali and enzymatic method, and then a suitable solvent is used. Perform extraction.
