Resveratrol derivatives bearing an O-linked mitochondria-targeting 4-triphenylphosphoniumbutyl group at either position 3 or position 4' are prooxidant and cytotoxic for cultured cells, selectively killing fast-growing cells when supplied in the low μM range. Resveratrol is essentially without effect under these experimental conditions, while the(More)
We recently reported that mitochondria-targeted derivatives of resveratrol are cytotoxic in vitro, selectively inducing mostly necrotic death of fast-growing and tumoral cells when supplied in the low μM range (N. Sassi et al., Curr. Pharm. Des. 2014). Cytotoxicity is due to H2O2 produced upon accumulation of the compounds into mitochondria. We investigate(More)
SIGNIFICANCE Plants produce many small molecules with biomedical potential. Their absorption from foods, metabolism, their effects on physiological and pathological processes, and the mechanisms of action are intensely investigated. Many are known to affect multiple cellular functions. Mitochondria are coming to be recognized as a major target for these(More)
