Four naturally occurring quinones, mansonone-D (MD), mansonone-H (MH), thespone (TP) and thespesone (TPE), extracted from the heartwood of Thespesia populnea have been tested for their cytotoxic action by aerobic incubation with human breast adenocarcinoma (MCF-7) cells. Toxicity of the quinones follows the order MD > TP > MH approximately TPE. EPR(More)
Two naturally occurring anthraquinones, barleriaquinone-I (BQ-I) and barleriaquinone-II (BQ-II), extracted from Barleria buxifolia, are tested for their cytotoxic action by aerobic incubation with human breast adenocarcinoma cells (MCF7). Cytotoxicities, measured as LD(50) (50% inhibition of colony formation) values, show BQ-II to be more active than BQ-I.(More)
