Oridonin induces apoptosis in human oral cancer cells via phosphorylation of histone H2AX.

Oridonin, a natural diterpenoid purified from Rabdosia rubescens, has displayed beneficial biological activities, including anti-proliferation and anti-angiogenesis effects, in various types of cancers. However, the anti-cancer potential of oridonin and its mechanism in oral cancer have never previously been studied. In this study, we assessed the role of… CONTINUE READING
