Research with primary cell walls harvested from a maize tissue culture system, that had been lignified by exogenous addition of lignin precursors, clearly showed that reduced cross-linking of cell-wall polysaccharides to lignin by ferulate bridges improved cell-wall degradability (Grabber et al., 1998).

In this study, we examined the effect of cycloartenyl ferulate (cycloartenol ferulic acid ester; CAF), a natural product from rice bran oil-derived [gamma]-oryzanol, on allergic reaction.
Three active principles are interlocked: ethyl ferulate, a natural antioxidant with UV absorbing properties, neutralizes dangerous oxygen radicals and reduces the dose of UV radiation that penetrates the skin; carnosolic acid combats free radicals--one of the main causes of DNA damage and uridine monophosphate (UMP), a biochemi-cal pre-cursor to the synthesis of nucleotides, supports the repair of DNA in the cell.
