Pheophorbide a, a major antitumor component purified from Scutellaria barbata, induces apoptosis in human hepatocellular carcinoma cells.
Mechanistic studies showed that pheophorbide a induced apoptosis in Hep3B cells, a viral-induced hepatoma cell line, but it was found to be non-toxic in normal human liver cells WRL-68 and the anti-proliferative activity and possible mechanisms of action are discussed.
Antitussive activity of Stemona alkaloids from Stemona tuberosa.
It is demonstrated, for the first time, that compounds 1 and 5 showed significant antitussive activities in guinea pig after cough induction by citric acid aerosol stimulation.
The role of turmerones on curcumin transportation and P-glycoprotein activities in intestinal Caco-2 cells.
The findings suggest the potential use of turmeric extract (including curcumin and turmerones), rather thanCurcumin alone, for treating diseases.
