Antiproliferative activity of epi-cercosporin in human solid tumor cell lines.

From cultures of Cercospora piaropi, a phytopathogenic fungus isolated from symptomatic leaves of water hyacinth was obtained a red compound, which, according to the spectroscopic data, was epi-cercosporin. It showed in vitro antiproliferative activity against the panel of human solid tumor cells HBL-100, HeLa, SW1573 and WiDr. Cell cycle studies revealed… CONTINUE READING
