Sesamin is found in the seeds or seed oil of plant sesame. It's a sesame extract.
D-type: needle-like crystal (ethanol), melting point 122-123 °C, optical rotation [α] D20 + 64.5 ° (c = 1.75, chloroform).
DL-type: crystal (ethanol), melting point 125-126 °C.
It is soluble in chloroform, benzene, acetic acid and acetone, slightly soluble in ether and petroleum ether. It is almost insoluble in water, alkaline solutions and hydrochloric acid.
Function and usage:
1. Sesamin has a variety of biological functions, including reducing serum and liver cholesterol levels, and reducing serum triglycerides by increasing liver fatty acid oxidation.
2. Sesamin can increase the level of γ-tocopherol, reduce the production of endotoxin-induced interleukin (IL) -1β, prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and thromboxane B2, and increase the production of IL-6 (12), thus inhibiting endotoxin-mediated shock.
3. Sesamin has the inhibitory effect on 7,12-dimethylbenzo [a] anthracene-induced breast cancer. It can inhibit the growth of a variety of tumor cells through different mechanisms. Therefore, sesamin is believed to prevent cancers and other chronic diseases.
