In the future, we will examine whether nobiletin could also affect chemical-induced carcinogenesis in vivo, and design an animal model for the inhibition of hepatoma induced by HGF or tetrachloromethane. Additional in vivo studies are needed to define (1) whether the observed effects of nobiletin on liver metastasis (2) discover the molecular mechanism for the antimetastatic effect of nobiletin.
High hepatotropic effect is attributed to tetrachloromethane (C[Cl.sub.4]), which its biotransformation is associated with the functioning of cytochrome P450-dependent monooxygenase system and free radicals production [1].
