Nrf2 activator; activates Nrf, which binds to antioxidant response elements (AREs) and induces Phase-I and -II drug-metabolizing enzymes including CYP2B and NQO1. Also increases mRNA levels of multiple hepatic xenobiotic transporters. Elevates expression of genes encoding anti-oxidant and multidrug resistance-associated proteins. Displays chemopreventive activity.
