  • This article presents a review about anthocyanins and shows they have anticancer property. Mechanism that may be responsible for the inhibitory effect of anthocyanins in carcinogenesis and tumor growth is either cellular redox status modification or any interference with basic cellular functions like cell cycle, apoptosis, inflammation, angiogenesis, invasion and metastasis. New anticancer agents can be developed taking reference of anthocyanins or by using them as basic structure. Further… CONTINUE READING
