β-Elemene is a natural sesquiterpene found in various plants and imparts floral aromas to some plants. This compound has been reported to inhibit the proliferation of a wide range of tumors. In HepG2 cells, 10-40 µg/ml β-elemene can dose-dependently induce apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in the G<sub>2</sub>/M phase, upregulating Fas/FasL expression. It has been shown to enhance the sensitivity of Hep3B, Hu7, MHCC97H, and MHCCLM3 cells to oxaliplatin (Item No. <span class=/itemid/>13106</span>; IC<sub>50</sub>s = 1.79, 3.27, 2.54, and 5.73 µM, respectively) by upregulating copper transporter 1, a major regulator of intracellular platinum accumulation.
