Biochem/physiol Actions

1,3-Diphenyl-2-propenone (chalcone) inhibits the proliferation of human breast cancer cell lines, MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 by inducing apoptosis and blocking cell cycle progression in the G2/M phase. It is an inhibitor of Plasmodium falciparum cyclin-dependent protein kinases.

Intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) are derived from nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) oxidase. Angiotensin II (Ang II) can cause endothelial dysfunction by promoting intracellular ROS generation. Safflor yellow B (SYB) effectively inhibits ROS generation by upregulating Bcl-2 expression. In...

The cyclin dependent protein kinases, Pfmrk and PfPK5, most likely play an essential role in cell cycle control and differentiation in Plasmodium falciparum and are thus an attractive target for antimalarial drug development. Various 1,3-diaryl-2-propenones (chalcone derivatives) which selectivity inhibit...
