Mannasantin B, a dilignan structurally related to manssantin A, is an inhibitor of NF-kappa B transactivation. In the present study, we found that it inhibited PMA-induced expression of IL-1 beta, IL-1 beta mRNA, and IL-1 beta promoter activity in U937 cells with IC50 values of about 50 nM. It also inhibited NF-IL6- and NF-kappa B-induced activation of IL-1 beta, with IC50 values of 78 nM and 1.6 mu M, respectively, revealing a potent inhibitory effect on NF-IL6.
