Four naturally occurring quinones, mansonone-D (MD), mansonone-H (MH), thespone (TP) and thespesone (TPE), extracted from the heartwood of Thespesia populnea have been tested for their cytotoxic action by aerobic incubation with human breast adenocarcinoma (MCF-7) cells. Toxicity of the quinones follows the order MD > TP > MH approximately TPE. EPR… CONTINUE READING
