Capsiate, a nonpungent capsaicin-like compound, inhibits angiogenesis and vascular permeability via a direct inhibition of Src kinase activity

Capsiate, a nonpungent capsaicin analogue, and its dihydroderivative dihydrocapsiate are the major capsaicinoids of thenonpungent red pepper cultivar CH-19 Sweet. In this study, we report the biological actions and underlying molecular mechanisms of capsiate on angiogenesis and vascular permeability. In vitro, capsiate and dihydrocapsiate inhibited vascularendothelial growth factor (VEGF)-induced proliferation, chemotactic motility, and capillary-like tube […]
