The chemopreventive effect of geraniol was investigated against 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA)/12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate (TPA)-mediated skin tumorigenesis in female Swiss albino mice. Effects of geraniol on TPA-induced skin edema, hyperplasia, COX-2, oxidative stress, ornithine decarboxylase and [3H] thymidine incorporation were observed. We studied geraniol treatment on incidence and number of tumor and on the expressions of Ras, Raf, ERK1/2, Bcl2 and Bax proteins in skin tumors. Our study concludes that Geraniol alters Ras proliferation pathway and pro-apoptotic state to inhibit DMBA/TPA-mediated skin tumorigenesis.
