Baicalein 5,6,7-trimethyl ether, a flavonoid derivative, stimulates fatty acid beta-oxidation in skin fibroblasts of X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy.

The purpose of the present study is to identify bioactive compounds with potential for X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD) pharmacological therapy. Various plant natural products including flavonoids were tested for their ability to ameliorate the abnormality of very long chain fatty acid (VLCFA) metabolism in cultured skin-fibroblasts from X-ALD patients… CONTINUE READING
