Apigenin (4′,5,7-trixydroxyflavone) is a member of the family of plant flavonoids considered to prevent a number of human diseases, for instance cancer development. It displays a lot of activities and part of its beneficial effects could come from its affinity to the cellular membranes. In the present study we used the liverwort Conocephalum conicum, a model plant in electrophysiological study. Intracellular microelectrode measurements were carried out to examine the effects of apigenin alone… CONTINUE READING
