Hecogenin acetate is a steroidal saponin first published in 1943 by Marker and colleagues at Penn State University, USA and isolated from plants of the Agave genus. Hecogenin acetate induces cell cycle arrest and senescence, and modulates ERK1/2 phosphorylation and MMP-2 production. Hecogenin acetate has nociceptive activity mediated by opioid receptors and endogenous analgesic mechanisms.
