General description

trans-Chalcone is an open chain flavonoid that may prevent lung and forestomach cancer.

Application

trans-Chalcone was used in the synthesis of cis and trans diphenyl cyclopropane. It was also used in screening of surface adsorbed species of isobutybenzene and 4-isobutylacetophenone on bulk fosfotungstic Wells-Dawson acid (H6P2W18O62.xH2O).

Packaging

100 g in poly bottle
5 g in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

trans-Chalcone exhibits antifungal activity against Trichophyton rubrum. It is inhibitor of fatty acid synthase and α-amylase. It induces programmed cell death due to reduced mitochondrial transmembrane potential in Arabidopsis thaliana roots.

A pharmacophore model, Hypo1, was built on the basis of 21 training-set indole compounds with varying levels of antiproliferative activity. Hypo1 possessed important chemical features required for the inhibitors and demonstrated good predictive ability for biological activity, with high correlation...

In an effort to develop potent antiamoebic agents, we have synthesized chalcones (1-8), amino-5-substituted-(3-phenyl(2-pyrazolinyl))methane-1-thione derivatives (1a-8a) and 2-(5-substituted-3-phenyl-2-pyrazolinyl)-1,3-thiazolino[5,4-b]quinoxaline derivatives (1b-8b) and evaluated for their in vitro antiamoebic activity against HM1:IMSS strain of E. histolytica. All the compounds were characterized by...
