Lunasin was the first dietary compound with an identified epigenetic mechanism of action. This mechanism (histone acetylation) was identified by Dr. Alfredo Galvez in 1996 and patented in 1999. While many other dietary compounds are known to affect gene expression, their exact mechanisms of action (how they work) remain unknown.
