General description

Wogonin is a flavonoid component of Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi roots.


Wogonin hydrate has been used to enhance the cytotoxicity of oxaliplatin in gastric cancer cells and zebrafish xenograft model and to test its effect on the expression and secretion of adiponectin in mature 3T3-L1 adipocytes.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Wogonin is an anti-inflammatory agent and COX-2 inhibitor, which inhibits the induction of both iNOS and COX-2. Wogonin inhibits COX-2 (IC50 = 46 μM) without affecting COX-1. Wogonin inhibits iNOS induction and thus inhibts activation-induced C6 glial cell death. Specifically, Wogonin inhibits NF-kappaB-mediated iNOS induction.
Wogonin co-treatment enhances apoptosis and antitumor potential of chemotherapeutic drug, oxaliplatin in gastric cancer cells. It also improves the efficacy of fluorouracil and paclitaxel. Wogonin anti-oxidative functionality may be useful in treating neurodegenerative and inflammatory diseases.

Constitutive activation of the Janus kinase (JAK)/signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) pathway occurs commonly in cancer cells and endothelial cells, and contributes to angiogenesis. Wogonin is a compound with many biologically relevant properties. We previously reported that wogonin...

We investigated the molecular basis of the ability of wogonin to control the intracellular signaling cascades of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). This activity induces antitumor activities in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) cells. Recently, the evolutionarily conserved serine/threonine kinase AMPK has emerged...
