In the presence of esculetin and HA14-1 (sc-205911) expression of the death receptor 4 (DR4) has been observed to be upregulated and extracellular-regulated kinase (ERK) to be activated. Other studies suggest that esculetin upregulates death receptor 5 (DR5) protein expression, and enhances TRAIL-induced apoptosis. It also inhibits the activity of 12-LO (12-lipoxygenase), and decreases leukotriene biosynthesis during 5-LO inhibition.
