Structural requirements of flavonoids for the adipogenesis of 3T3-L1 cells.


To search for a new class of antidiabetic compounds, effects of 44 flavonoids on the adipogenesis of 3T3-L1 cells were examined. Among them, 3,4',7-trimethylkaempferol, tetramethylkaempferol, and pentamethylquercetin concentration-dependently enhanced the accumulation of triglyceride, a marker of adipogenesis. With regard to structural requirements of… (More)
