Ginkgolide B induces apoptosis and developmental injury in mouse embryonic stem cells and blastocysts.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Ginkgolide B, the major active component of Ginkgo biloba extracts, can both stimulate and inhibit apoptotic signalling. We previously showed that ginkgolide treatment of mouse blastocysts induces apoptosis, decreases cell numbers, retards early post-implantation blastocyst development and increases early-stage blastocyst death. Here, we report… (More)
