Apoptosis plays important roles in the development and maintenance of homeostasis and in the elimination of cells that are damaged or no longer necessary for the organism (Traka and Mithen, 2009). Regulation of the apoptosis can be accomplished either through the death-receptor caspase cascades or the mitochondria caspase cascades. , 2008). 18 Bioactive Foods and Extracts Different experiments have demonstrated that SFN, PEITC, BITC, and AITC induced apoptosis by different mechanisms including activation of signaling kinases (like p38 kinase), which resulted in cytochrome c release from the mitochondria and caspase-3, -8, and -9 activation; downregulation of antiapoptotic proteins Bcl-2 and Bcl-XL; and increase of the proapoptotic protein Bax (Traka and Mithen, 2009).
The positive effect of this compound on other types of cancer like the hepatic has also been demonstrated (Hwang and Lee, 2006; Hwang and Kim, 2009). Based on in vitro results, these authors concluded that AITC might be potentially useful in suppressing tumor cell migration in SK-Hep1 human hepatoma cells. Kumar et al. (2009) explore the mechanism of action of AITC on Ehrlich Glucosinolates in Brassica and Cancer 13 ascites tumor (EAT) cells and concluded that AITC inhibits tumor growth by both antiangiogenic and proapoptotic mechanisms.
