Sinapinic and protocatechuic acids found in rapeseed: isolation, characterisation and potential benefits for human health as functional food ingredients

cancer A549 cell, HepG2 hepatocellular carcinoma, cervix HeLa and prostate cancer LNCaP cells. PCA was able to penetrate the cancer cells, destroying the integrity of the plasma membrane, causing apoptosis and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) leakage. PCA also decreased Na+/K+-ATPase activity, thereby disrupting ion homoeostasis, resulting in collapse of the mitochondrial membrane. This collapse resulted in the release of pro-apoptotic factors, initiating the intrinsic apoptotic pathway, and was also suggested to cause an increase in the activities of caspase-8 and -3
