    Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE)

    $122.54 - $495.71
    Caffeic acid phenethyl ester is a natural phenolic compound from honeybee hives and has demonstrated anti-carcinogenic, anti-bacterial, and antiinflammatory properties.
    Mechanism of ActionCaffeic acid phenethyl ester inhibits bacterial growth by the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) which disrupt the cell's outer membrane. Anti-inflammatory effects of CAPE arise from inhibiting the release of arachidonic acid from the cell membrane as well as inhibition of COX-1 and COX-2 activity.
    SpectrumCaffeic acid phenethyl ester is active against Enterococcus faecalis, Listeria monocytogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, and Haemophilus influenzae.
