trans-AUCB is a potent inhibitor of soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH).

Soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) can convert epoxides to their corresponding diols. Inhibitors of sEH have anti-hypertensive, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and cardioprotective effects.

In vitro: A previous study showed that the pretreatment with DAPT could substantially potentiate the growth inhibition caused by t-AUCB in U251 and U87 cells. Moreover, the pretreatment with DAPT markedly increased t-AUCB-induced apoptosis of U251 and U87 cells. Moreover, T-AUCB alone did not obviously affect caspase-3 activity in the cells, but t-AUCB plus DAPT pretreatment caused significant increase of caspase-3 activity. In addition, the pretreatment with DAPT was able to completely block t-AUCB-induced phosphorylation of p38 MAPK, MAPKAPK2 and Hsp27 in the cells [1].

In vivo: A previous animal study was conducted to investigate the effects of acute sEH inhibition by t-AUCB on infarct volume, functional outcome, and changes in cerebral blood flow (CBF) in a rat model of ischemic stroke. It was found that t-AUCB could significantly reduce cortical infarct volume by 35%, elevate cumulative epoxyeicosatrienoic acids-to-dihydroxyeicosatrienoic acids ratio in brain cortex by twofold, and improve functional outcome in arm-flexion test when compared with that of the vehicle-treated group [2].

Clinical trial: So far, no clinical study has been conducted.
