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...

Derivatives of natural quinones with biological activities, such as lapachol, alpha- and beta-lapachones, have been synthesized and their trypanocidal activity evaluated in vitro in Trypanosoma cruzi cells. All tested compounds inhibited epimastigote growth and trypomastigote viability. Several compounds showed similar...

Lapachol is a 1,4-naphthoquinone that is isolated from the Bignoniaceae family. It has been reported to exert anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anticancer activities. However, the anticancer activity of lapachol and its molecular mechanisms against esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) cells have...
