Gycitein has weak estrogenic activity, comparable to that of the other soy isoflavones but much lower than that of DES and 17beta-estradiol.

the effects of genistein, daidzein and glycitein on the growth and DNA synthesis of aortic smooth muscle cells (SMC) from stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRSP). SMC were cultured in dishes and proliferated on 10% dextran-coated charcoal/fetal bovine serum, and then treated with 0.1–30 μmol/L of genistein, daidzein or glycitein to investigate cell proliferation (cell number) and DNA synthesis (cell proliferation ELISA system), respectively. We also studied their effects on platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-BB (20 μg/L)–induced SMC proliferation. Soybean isoflavones inhibited proliferation and DNA synthesis of SMC from SHRSP in a concentration-dependent manner. Inhibition was significant at 3 μmol/L of genistein and 10 μmol/L of both daidzein and glycitein. For significant inhibition of PDGF-BB–induced SMC proliferation, concentrations as low as 0.1 μmol/L of each isoflavone were effective. These isoflavones, with their inhibitory effects on natural and PDGF-BB–induced SMC proliferation, may be useful in attenuatating such proliferation, a basic mechanism involved in atherosclerotic vascular change, thereby preventing atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases.
