Cell permeable triterpenoid; anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive compound. Antioxidant. Suppresses LPS-induced cytokine release in macrophages and monocytes (IC50=40nM for IL-1β and IL-1α, 80nM for IL-6, 110nM for prostaglandin E2 and 210nM for IL-8 and TNF-α). Suppresses nitric oxide (NO) production (IC50=230nM) and LPS-induced NF-κB activation (IC50=270nM). Inhibits chymotrypsin-like activity of 20S proteasome (IC50=2.5µM). Inhibits lipid peroxidation induced by ADP and Fe2+ in rat liver mitochondria (IC50=7µM). Induces expression of a wider set of heat shock proteins. Inhibits topoisomerase II.
