8,8''-Biapigeninyl (BA), a condensation product of two apigenin molecules, is found abundantly in the nuts of Cupressus sempervirens. We investigated the effects of BA on murine bone cells in vitro and in ovariectomized (OVx) mice. BA at 10(-10)M and 10(-8)M, inhibited osteoclastogenesis of bone marrow cells (BMCs) and displayed concentration dependence. BA(More)
Kaempferol (K), a flavonol, is known to have anti-osteoclastogenic effect. We here show that K, from 0.2 to 5.0 microM, increased mineralized nodules in rat primary osteoblasts. K also significantly attenuated adipocyte formation from bone marrow cells (BMCs). A single oral dose of 1 mg/kg body weight of K in Sprague-Dawley (180-200 g) rats resulted in a(More)
The present study sought to investigate the in vitro and in vivo effects of a tyrosine-based benzoxazepine, 4-[4-(toluene-4-sulfonyl)-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-benzo[f][1,4]oxazepin-3-ylmethyl]-phenol) [THBP] in human breast cancer cells, with a focus on determining its molecular target. THBP had growth inhibitory effect on MCF-7 and MDA-MD-231 cells. At IC(50)(More)
