• TCS, as a novel potent ST inhibitor, could possess antidepressant action, and would be helpful in improving neuropsychological disorders through regulating serotoninergic transmission.

• The lignan glycoside, tracheloside, has high anti-estrogenic activity comparable to that of tamoxifen, antagonist of the estrogen receptor in breast tissue.

• The analgesic, antioxidant, anti-atherogenic, immunomodulatory, free radical-scavenging, anti-inflammatory, and other medicinal properties of SC, bioflavonoids, and lignans can be used against various diseases and complications.
