UV radiation causes a variety of immediate and long-term harmful effects, including sunburn, photoaging, etc. UVB radiation can cause damage to the skin characterized by the formation of sun-damaged cells, inducing oxidative damage to cellular components and an acute inflammatory response. Reactive oxygen species are produced by transferring electromagnetic energy from UVB radiation to molecular oxygen, and at least 50% of UVB-induced damage can be attributed to the formation of reactive oxygen species.An increase in hydrogen peroxide production of twice the minimal erythemal dose can be observed in vivo 10 minutes after UVB exposure.


It is currently believed that the anti-inflammatory activity of lignans is related to the inhibition of the production of nitric oxide (NO) and other inflammatory cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and interleukin-6 (IL-6), inhibition of phosphorylation of the protein complexin, and nuclear transcription factor KB (NF-KB)-mediated gene expression.


Mucuna pruriens can induce apoptosis of tumor cells by targeting the regulation of signal transmissions, gene expression, enzyme activation or inhibition in cell growth, thus achieving the effect of inhibiting tumor growth. This effect has potential applications for the prevention and treatment of many types of cancer.
