Tubeimoside-1 induces G2/M phase arrest and apoptosis in SKOV-3 cells through increase of intracellular Ca²⁺ and caspase-dependent signaling pathways.


Tubeimoside-1 (TBMS1) extracted from Bolbostemma paniculatum (Maxim), is a traditional Chinese herb with anticancer potential. It induces apoptosis in a number of human carcinoma cell lines, but the mechanism has remained unclear. In the present study, we investigated the pro-apoptotic activity of TBMS1 against SKOV-3 cell lines and the underlying… (More)
