- BACKGROUND: Euphorbia kansui, a traditional medical herb, has been shown to have anti-tumour and anti-viral activities. Previously, we have reported that E. kansui increases interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) production in natural killer (NK) cells. However, it is not clear how E. kansui regulates IFN-γ secretion by NK cells. RESULTS: In this study, E. kansui was separated into six individual compounds from the same chloroform fraction so that the activity of each compound could be compared. E. kansui compounds induced IFN-γ secretion through the phosphorylation of protein kinase D and IκB kinase pathways. Furthermore, E. kansui compounds activated the translocation of p65, a sub-unit of nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells (NF-κB), to the nucleus and induced NF-κB at the transcriptional level. CONCLUSION: These findings suggest that E. kansui enhances IFN-γ secretion through the NF-κB pathway in NK cells.
