Flavone initiates a hierarchical activation of the caspase-cascade in colon cancer cells

Abstract

There is emerging evidence that dietary factors can prevent cancer by affecting the process of carcinogenesis. Flavonoids present in vegeterian food possess antioxidant activities, have scavenging effects on activated carcinogens and mutagens, affect cell cycle progression and alter gene and protein expression. We report here that flavone, the core… (More)
