Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is an adult-onset neurodegenerative disease caused by selective loss of motor neurons. In the ALS motor neurons, TAR DNA-binding protein of 43 kDa (TDP-43) is dislocated from the nucleus to cytoplasm and forms inclusions, suggesting that loss of a nuclear function of TDP-43 may underlie the pathogenesis of ALS.

We compared the lipophilicity and toxicity of the four flavonols, galangin, kaempferol, quercetin and myricetin, which respectively have no, one, two and three hydroxyl groups on the B-ring. The lipophilicity was in the order of myricetin < quercetin < kaempferol < galangin. The cytotoxicity determined by a colony-formation assay with Chinese hamster lung(More)
