Comment: Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) is a secondary plant metabolite produced in Brassica family vegetables. It has been reported as an aryl hydrocarbon receptor agonist, although its affinity is very low and it therefore may not be a significant agonist of the AhR in vivo [2]. Anticarcinogenic and antitumourigenic properties of I3C have been reported in various types of cancer cells [1,3-4].
