The present study reports the anti-mycobacterial activity of 2-hydroxy-3-(3-methyl-2-butenyl)-1,4-naphthoquinone (lapachol) as well as its influence on macrophage functions. Lapachol (L) did not induce apoptosis/necrosis of THP-1 macrophages at ≤32 μg/mL. Mycobacterium avium liquid growth was arrested by ≥32 μg/mL and...
