Screening of four Cyclopia (honeybush) species for putative phyto-oestrogenic activity by oestrogen receptor binding assays
(AOSIS OpenJournals, 2007)
Phyto-oestrogens mediate an oestrogenic effect through binding to the oestrogen receptor (ER) subtypes, ERα and ERβ. Four commercially available Cyclopia (honeybush) species - C. intermedia, C. subternata, C. genistoides ...
Phytoestrogenic potential of Cyclopia extracts and polyphenols
(Georg Thieme Verlag, 2013-05)
Cyclopia Vent. species, commonly known as honeybush, are endemic to Southern Africa. The plant is traditionally used as an herbal tea but several health benefits have recently been recorded. This minireview presents an ...
Evaluation of the phytoestrogenic activity of Cyclopia genistoides (honeybush) methanol extracts and relevant polyphenols
(American Chemical Society, 2007-04)
Unfermented C. genistoides methanol extracts of different harvestings and selected polyphenols were evaluated for phytoestrogenic activity by comparing binding to both ER subtypes, transactivation of an ERE-containing ...
Chemoprevention of LA7-induced mammary tumor growth by SM6Met, a well-characterized cyclopia extract
Breast cancer (BC) is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women. Chemoprevention of BC by using plant extracts is gaining attention. SM6Met, a wellcharacterized extract of Cyclopia subternata with reported ...
