Abstract:This research has shown that lyc metabolites accumulate in the prostate, seminal vesicles and adrenal gland compared to the other analyzed tissues. Moreover, modulated carotenoid cleavage enzyme(s) expression in the adrenal, prostate and kidney suggested that the accumulated lyc metabolites in these tissues be involved in the observed transcriptional changes. In essence, lyc has previously been reported to improve antioxidant status but the presented data suggests that lyc could also modulate prostate cancer related genes.
