REVIEW

 Brucine is a bitter alkaloid, and an isomer of strychnine, though not poisonous.. It occurs in several plant species, the most well known being the Strychnos nux-vomica tree, found in South-East Asia. For medicinal purposes, brucine is primarily used in the regulation of high blood pressure and other comparatively benign cardiac ailments. Brucine also shows the pain modulation and anti-inflammation effects which are mediated by central and peripheral mechanisms. Brucine also has a long history of being used as a traditional medicine for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma) in China. Brucine downregulated expression levels of HIF-1 responsive genes in vivo which appear to be implicated in the anti-metastasis activity of brucine. In colon cancer, brucine could inhibit angiogenesis viathe KDR signaling pathway and be a useful therapeutic candidate for colon cancer intervention. In LoVo cells, , brucine caused G1-cell cycle arrest and apoptosis, possibly by inhibition of VEGFR2. Brucine has also been shown to induce apoptosis in U266 cells via the JNK signaling pathway and phosphorylation of c-Jun. Brucine can also cause apoptosis in A549 cells by inhibiting the activity of NF-kappaB and the subsequent COX-2 gene expression. In the cancer arena brucine appears to have a wide range of mechanistic activity. Brucine, which is basic, is frequently used as agents for chiral resolution of racemic acidic compounds, giving rise to the separation of racemic mixtures.
