The flavonoids, quercetin and isorhamnetin 3-O-acylglucosides diminish neutrophil oxidative metabolism and lipid peroxidation.

Two natural flavonoids, quercetin and isorhamnetin 3-O-acylglucosides, were examined for their inhibitory influence on the in vitro production and release of reactive oxygen species in polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs). The generation of superoxide radical, hydrogen peroxide and hypochlorous acid were measured by, respectively, cytochrome c reduction… (More)
