A novel and potent biological antioxidant, Kinobeon A, from cell culture of safflower.
Kinobeon A was originally isolated from cultured cells of safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L., Compositae). It had never previously been directly isolated from safflower or other plants, animals orExpand

Kinobeon A as a potent tyrosinase inhibitor from cell culture of safflower: in vitro comparisons of kinobeon A with other putative inhibitors.
Kinobeon A is produced from cell cultures of the medicinal plant, safflower. Mushroom tyrosinase activity was inhibited in a concentration-dependent manner when treated with kinobeon A usingExpand
