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 or microorganisms. In this report, we demonstrate the anti-oxidative effects of kinobeon A and compare the results with those two known natural antioxidants, lignan (nordihydroguaiaretic acid) and quercetin. The NADPH-induced microsomal lipid peroxidation system was employed to assess anti-oxidative… CONTINUE READING
