Methylation protects dietary flavonoids from rapid hepatic metabolism.

Abstract

The metabolic stability of two potential cancer chemopreventive flavones, i.e. 5,7-dimethoxyflavone (5,7-DMF) and 3',4'-dimethoxyflavone (3',4'-DMF), compared with the non-methylated flavone galangin (3,5,7-trihydroxyflavone), was investigated in human hepatic preparations. Galangin, as expected, was extensively metabolized mainly by glucuronidation in… (More)
