- A novel reductive metabolism of 1-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)-deca-4-ene-3-one (shogaol), a pungent principle of ginger, was investigated in rat liver in vitro. Ethyl acetate-extractable metabolites of shogaol formed by incubation of this alpha,beta-unsaturated ketone with rat liver cytosolic fraction fortified with NADPH or NADPH-generating system were isolated, and two major metabolites were identified as 1-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)-decan-3-one (paradol) and 1-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxy)-decan-3-ol (reduced paradol). 1-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)-deca-1-ene-3-one (dehydroparadol), a non-pungent analog of shogaol, formed the same metabolites as did shogaol under similar incubation conditions. Paradol appears to be an intermediate in the reductive metabolism of the alpha,beta-unsaturated ketone moiety of shogaol to the corresponding saturated alcohol.
