Procyanidin B2 (PB2) is a naturally occurring flavonoid widely found in cocoa, red wine and grape juice, PB2 could protect against oxidative stress- and chemical-induced injury in colonic cells by modulating the endogenous cellular defence, PB2 protects against oxidative injury in colonic cells and up-regulate the expression of GSTP1 via a mechanism that involves ERK and p38 MAPK activation and Nrf2 translocation.[1]
Procyanidin B2 (PB2) is one of phenolic compounds in apple pomace, an agro-industrial byproduct in apple juice processing, PB2 at no less than 50 mu g.mL(-1) could significantly suppress inflammation in the LPS-induced cells, shows that high pure PB2 prepared from apple pomace has a remarkable anti-inflammatory property.[2]
Procyanidin B2 exhibits cytotoxic activity to MCF-7 cells and it could be a potential antineoplastic agent. [3]
Procyanidin B2 has toxic property towards triple negative breast cancer cells, it may shows new promise for therapeutic intervention of cancer.[4]
Procyanidin B2( PB2) is absorbed and excreted in urine, and a portion of the PB2 is degraded to (?)-epicatechin and to the metabolized conjugated and/or methylated (?)-epicatechin internally in the rat, PB2 also can reduces the accumulation of lipid peroxide in plasma oxidized by copper ions.[5]
Procyanidin B2 and a cocoa polyphenolic extract inhibit acrylamide-induced apoptosis in human Caco-2 cells by preventing oxidative stress and activation of JNK pathway.[6]
Procyanidin B2 has anti- and pro-oxidant effects on metal-mediated DNA damage by interacting with H2O2 and metal ions.[7]
